It may seem absurd to call a bread accessory badass, but I stand by it when it comes to Better off Spread. This Brooklyn-based company promises to "blow your ants straight off their log," and they don't bluff. To start, their branding is the best. Their logo features a knife applying spread on toast that miraculously looks like an electric guitar, and their spreads have been named with prize-worthy metal-inspired puns. A sampling: Every Rosemary Has Its Thorn and ... Read More

In the biggest "Wait...what?" of the past 15 minutes, the rapper 2 Chainz has written a cookbook oh-so-cleverly titled #MEAL TIME. The cookbook pairs hearty southern-style dishes with your favorite 2 Chainz songs. I know, it doesn't really make sense...but it looks TASTY!!!

Now, under ... Read More

Mort had eaten a poppy-seed bagel hours before giving birth, and with poppy seeds being the routes of drugs such as heroin and morphine, Mort ended up testing positive for ... Read More
