I think I want pizza...

So it's been a while since I've posted any bizarre Japanese videos, but this one just seemed to good to pass up.

I guess it's a commercial for pizza, but I'm not entirely sure. After watching it I had the same reaction as Homer Simpson after he watched the Mr. Sparkle commercial.

Please let them play Bon Jovi tonight...

It's only February, but I think we've found an early favorite for this year's best viral video. Check out this Celtics fan dancing to Livin' on a Prayer.

Can you imagine the anticipation that must grip this guy waiting for them to play the one song that he's worked so hard to bust a routine to?

The Joe The Blogger Investigation Unit has been hard at work trying to find out some details about the dancer. JTBIU has found out that his name is Jeremy Fry, and has a serious thing for Bon Jovi and attention from crowds.

Personally, I'd avoid inviting him to your next karaoke jam or 80s party.

How many calories are in a Turbaconuken?

More importantly, what is a Turbaconuken?

It's a chicken, inside of a duck, inside of a turkey, with the whole thing wrapped in bacon. This is just one of the many disturbing, yet somewhat appetizing dishes featured on thisiswhyyourefat.com.

Looking at some of these things is like looking at a deep-fried chocolate-coated train wreck. It's awful and disturbing, yet impossible to look away.

This one might be my favorite, it's a McNuggetini: A McDonald’s chocolate milkshake with vanilla vodka, rimmed with BBQ sauce and garnished with a chicken McNugget.

What's more refreshing than cow urine?

Apparently to scientists in India, nothing.

In a country that has boycotted Coke and Pepsi since 1984, their new take on a refreshing summer beverage involves moving forward with a drink made from cow urine and herbs.

"Don't worry, it won't smell like urine and will be tasty too," said project leader Om Prakash. "It's going to be very healthy. It won't be like carbonated drinks and would be devoid of any toxins."

I'm glad their addressing this, because if there's one single drawback to urine-based drinks, it's got to be the smell.

Somewhere, executives from Sunny D (formerly known as Sunny Delight) must be thrilled to know that somebody has finally made something more disgusting than the swill they've been pushing on kids for years.

The not-so great escape

So say you're a prisoner looking to make a quick escape, but you're chained to another guy. I think the one thing you really need to coordinate is how you're going to avoid lamp posts. Needless to say, these two hapless New Zealand cons did not.

Those poles can really sneak up on you.

Caution: Raptors ahead

First off, I apologize for the lack of posts over the past month. Between vacation, the snow, earthquakes and my real job it's been tough. But I'm back and I promise to post more regularly.

So my favorite new trend is people hacking into electronic road signs. The latest incident came this week in Indiana, where someone changed an electronic road sign to read: Raptors Ahead: Caution.

Apparently not everyone realized this was a prank, including a few clueless motorists.

"It's kind of crazy. I'm totally confused," said one motorist. "I'm kind of expecting … dinosaurs to run down the road, or something."
Another puzzled motorist said, "Which raptors?" before adding that he hadn't seen the sign.

This comes less than a week after someone hacked into electronic road signs in Texas to warn about Zombies.

I'm certainly not endorsing the practice of hacking into road signs, but I think an award should be given for the most creative hacked sign.
