In honor of Easter, and this bizarre associated manufacturing of demand for candied forest critters comes Carl Huber, an otherwise nondescript youngster with net access, bad judgement and an obsessive desire to have his fifteen minutes of fame. Congrats.

McDonald's considering gassing instead of electrocuting chikens

In response to issues raised by activist groups, McDonald's is entertaining the idea of gassing chickens to death for food products, as opposed to their current method where they hang the chickens upside down by their feet on a conveyor and run them through a vat of electrified liquid. At least that's more humane than my idea of hooking up a plasma TV in the coop and making the chickens watch Jim Carrey movies.

More mad cows

Ask your typical American and they're clueless to the fact that mad cow disease has ever turned up in the United States. Singular cases elsewhere in the world have prompted massive efforts to address this potential plague, yet the mainstream media has been hesitant to call much attention to the story for fear of upsetting their fast food benefactors. However, another case has appeared in the U.S.. With our obsession for protecting corporate interests over the health of the people, how bad will things get before something is done or the details are revealed?

A guy with way too much time on his hands decided to launch an interesting prank: creating his own funny versions of TGI Fridays' menus and swapping them out in the restaurants. Hilarity and copycat crimes ensue.

I recommend the Bacon Churner with Fauxtatoes!

Twinkie maker files for bankruptcy

[Junk Food]
Interstate Bakeries Corp. (IBC), the nation's largest wholesaler baker whose products include Twinkies and Wonder Bread, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection early Wednesday.

I'm thinking the problem was with the product itself. If you create a snack cake that tastes the same 200 years later, you might be damaging future business?
