Best of the Week #25

I’ve had one of those busy weeks where I feel like I accomplished nothing…so TGIF!

My most popular post this week was the Root Beer Float Cake with Root Beer Fudge Frosting. Looks like people are in the mood for summery desserts!

And now for the weekly round-up of silliness....

Fried Kool-Aid? Weird. It’s Kool-Aid, water, and flour fried, so I imagine it’s like a very red sweet fruit punch doughnut? Not necessarily a bad thing… (source)

The glasses! The hoodies! The sweater vests! Hipsters are ridiculous but somehow ubiquitous….this is a music video/add/hipster display made for Lockheed Martin: F-35: Stealth Fighter Jet of Discerning Hipsters. Because clearly plaid and skinny jeans scream fighter jets? I have to admit...I still don't get it.

This video will make you cry in a good/inspirational way. (source)


These are silly. I’d rather eat healthy cereal, and then a cupcake. (source)

Interesting graph: "What % of PhDs go to women in your discipline?" Women get over 70% of psychology PhDs, and less than 20% of physics.

Baby animal alert! “This adorable ball of spotted fluff is one of five baby cheetah cubs born on May 28, 2011 at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Va. The cubs are the only litter of cheetah cubs born in a North American zoo this year.” (source)

Spongiforma squarepantsii This is not a joke. It’s a mushroom named after Spongebob Squarepants. For serious. (source)

I want to go to NYC and eat this pizza. (Again, why can’t I teleport???) (source)

Hope you have a great weekend!!!
