Down in Oz, pizza has a whole different mojo. Instead of tangy tomato sauce? Yummy BBQ sauce. And on top of that sauce are 8 different piles of chunky meat, including lamb.
And in case the still image doesn’t cut it, click the link to view more to see the flash movie commercial. And unless you live in Australia, the “buy now” button will be pretty useless.

With Christmas right around the corner, you are probably looking for odd fun items to cram into your kid’s stocking this year. Out of ideas? You must be if you came here looking for one, but since you stopped by, why not try get your kid a Spread Head? This is a cartoonish face that oozes ketchup out its nose or pukes bright yellow mustard!
Just replace your regular mustard or ketchup bottle caps with a Spread Head to make lunch and dinnertime fun!
The SpreadHeads website is here.

Shooting meat missiles at the fans in Philadelphia? But of course. America would expect nothing less. Click the video below to see the short documentary on how they built a cannon to shoot yummy snacks at the fans.
Thanks to Miss Cellania!

Take some Pepsi and mix it with yogurt, and you get Japan’s newest taste sensation, Pepsi White.
• “It tastes kinda soapy.”
• “It’s kinda cream soda-ish, but not as sweet.”
• “Do the Japanese realize they are being sold mislabeled cream soda?”
• “Ooh, it’s weirdly sparkly as you pour it.”
• “It smells like Slice or one of those fruity sodas. And initially it tastes exactly like that: a generic lemon-lime soda. But there’s a strong secondary taste that’s much harder to pin down.”
• “I really can’t get over the smell. I feel like I’m sticking my face in a scented candle every time I take a sip, and it’s throwing me off.”
• “It starts off fine, but afterward, the distinct flavor of Maalox lingers in my mouth.”
• “Usually we say everything tastes like cough medicine, but this actually tastes more like Pepto.”
My reaction? “Waitaminnit… That’s not yogurt!“ Another freakish Pepsi drink from Japan is here.

Well, Thanksgiving is still a week away, but you should start shopping for your ingredients now. Don’t wait until the last minute or you won’t get the size or brand of turkey you want. And make sure you get your brining kit ready. A brined bird is so succulent and moist, you will never “just baste” a bird again. Alton Brown from the Food Network demonstrates a simple and effective brining process in the video below.
If you want to take a shortcut, you can buy a jar of brining spices. I got a good kit from World Market this past weekend. Williams and Sonoma stores carry it and many of the finer grocery stores carry a good brining kit too. Or you can make your own. The only key is to use a cup of salt and ice cold water to soak the turkey.
Here is a sample recipe:
1 cup salt 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 apple, cut into wedges 1 orange, cut into wedges 3 cloves garlic 4 bay leaves 1 tablespoon dried thyme 1 tablespoon ground black pepper 1 1/2 gallons icy cold water 1 thawed turkey with giblets and neck removed
Dissolve the salt and sugar into a gallon of boiling water. Let the water cool to room temperature, and add the rest of the items and the turkey into a clean 5 gallon bucket or ice cooler. If you have a brining bag, you can use that, but store the mixture somewhere cold, in a spill-proof container. Let the turkey brine for 24 hours.

Thought I would post this hilarious sign hanging over a grocery store aisle. If you ask me, if baby gets a job, he should be able to buy his OWN beer. Until then, it doesn’t matter how many signs he makes. He’s not getting his tiny baby fingers on my Bud Light.
Thanks to Failblog.

I popped over to the SoGood blog and saw the post about the bacon salt packs and the fabulous baconnaise sandwich spread and my mouth instantly started watering. I want some.
I would put this stuff on every sandwich I make. I would spread it on my morning bagel. I would dip carrot sticks and cucumber slices into it. Here is my ultimate fantasy sandwich right now, if only I had some Baconnaise:
Warm dark meat chicken pieces, melted swiss cheese, crispy lettuce and tomato slices, with a dash of salt and pepper on slices of french bread, with creamy Baconnaise spread on each slice.
I shouldn’t blog hungry.

I got an email from long-time fan of the site and old-school submitter, George Conner:
Wow Pat, how the site has grown!!
Hello, I’m George Conner. I have a few burps in the Classic submissions (1&2). I can’t believe it’s been so long since I came to the site, and I must say I was quite surprised to see how much it’s came along.
I ran across an old burp of mine I blasted from behind my drum kit during a band rehearsal in 2002 and instantly thought of good old belch.com. I can still remember the feeling of pride I felt when I received my first “cool” rating, so I came by to check things out; Impressive indeed!
So with that I leave you with a blast from the past. It kinda pales in comparison with what’s been done here now, but nostalgia is nostalgia, and a good burp is meant to be shared!
And click below to hear George’s belch.
And his old stuff is here. Click the buttons below.
George Conner pokes fun at a huge, freakish purple dinosaur.
A certain nationally recognized Chihuahua inspired George Conner to create this.
This next one by George Conner features a deep soft rumbler.
George Conner has a terrific wav file that could easily replace that annoying AOL message delivery sound.

I have a toddler who absolutely must watch Monsters, Inc at least once per day, and often twice. I have seen the movie so often now that I can almost quote the whole movie verbatim. I had often wondered why the Abominable Snowman, who greets Sully and Mike in Nepal describes the kids of the nearby village with the words titling this post. As it turns out, its the lyrics to the old Armour Hot Dogs jingle. That jingle may have been for radio only because I can’t find a good video of it, so here is one from the intermission of the old Drive-In Movies. Enjoy. Mmmm! That red dye number 2 sure made those weenies look good!

Some monks collected a million Heineken beer bottles and build this temple in Thailand.
This would have been much cooler if they had drank all the beer themselves. Thanks to UniqueDaily.

As smokers get kicked out of more and more pubs around the world, enterprising companies are trying to come up with the perfect replacement to keep the smokers in the pubs. Now there is “Fag in a Can” drink called Liquid Smoking.
I wonder whether they are trying to bottle the hot, cool essense of smoking like this:
Or are they bottling the gross, disgusting part like this:
Has anyone tried this concoction? If so, let us know in the comments what it was like.

This commercial is funny as long as you don’t think about it too much. Click below to watch how cavemen deal with a milk bottle.
How did the milk bottle get there? Is it a time traveling milk bottle? Why didn’t a milk bottle that had an easy-opening top travel through time? If the bottle was from their own time, was the milk bottled by Cro Magnon men with a glass blowing operation and a dairy farm? Was that even cow’s milk since cattle were not yet evolved in the time of dinosaurs? Did dinosaurs and humans live together?
Like I said, just don’t think about it.

Shh. Hear that? Its dinner! P-Kow! Now get in there and make me some squirrel melts!
If I cleared the trees around my home, I could eat squirrel melts for a month.

The perfect peanut butter for prisoners, mental health patients and mopey teenage cutters. They will no longer have to shove their hands into a peanut butter jar up to the wrist to scoop out the brown yummy paste for their sandwiches with their two-fingered knife substitutes. Now they just unwrap the sliced peanut butter and toss it on wonder bread!

So it turns out that one of those cans of cinnamon rolls you can buy? A slice of bacon is the same size, so stack them one on the other, then bake and coat with sugar glaze. MMmmm.
Thanks to Neatorama for the link!

I haven’t had the chance to taste any local shine, but I would love to do so someday. In the meantime, enjoy this song by the New Lost City Ramblers. Thanks to BarStoolMountain for the songs.
