How To Make Your Own All-Black Burger

With all-black food becoming the rage — at least in a certain part of the world that tends to do stuff that’s cray-cray — a ‘how to do your own black burger’ was bound to happen.

Brought to us by Instructables member, spunk, the black-out burger is made possible with some medicinal charcoal. The instructions on how to make your own can be found here. Who’s crazy now, Japan?

What They Really Ate At The First Thanksgiving

When we think of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner — the requisite turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and creepy uncles comes to mind.

Guardian Food takes us back to the very first Thanksgiving meal in 1621, showing us that it was far from the meal that’s now synonymous with giving thanks.

Turkey probably wasn’t even on the menu, as wild turkeys may have been a bit too fast for the pilgrims to hunt. Ducks and geese, more the early-settler’s speed, were the go-to bird — while the absence of sugar at the time, would’ve made cranberry sauce impossible.

We have to imagine that pilgrims and native Americans had questionable relatives though. See… just like Thanksgiving.

Homer Simpson Statue Made From Junk Food

Whether picking up a six-pack of Duff, or looking for something in an ‘after-dinner burrito,’ Homer Simpson usually finds what he’s looking for at the Kwik-E-Mart.

So, if you’re going to create a food statue of the Simpson’s patriarch, it should consist of the kinds of stuff you’d find at Apu’s convenience store.

Brought to us by Mandatory.com, the tribute to Homer is made from mini powdered doughnuts, marshmallows, vanilla meringues, black licorice, melted taffy, various forms of gummies, and cotton candy. Mmm… Statuey.
