I hope you finished breakfast before watching this one.

Speaking of breakfast, here’s how to bring a creative twist to the same old, courtesy of Foodbeast: the Egg Cloud.

This one’s chock full of good stuff.  Pour out your cereal and let’s get started.

Foodbeast brings us an alternative, healthier dish: Cauiflower Fried Rice

They’ve also got Nacho Cheese Stuffed Fries.  This is now on my bucket list- probably because I’ll have a coronary after I eat them, but whatever.

Coming Soon to a Neighborhood Near You…  Or They May Even Be Here Already.

A nice little lifehack from BoredPanda shows us how to turn your smartphone into a 3D Holographic Device.

From DNA11 art comes an amazing portfolio of Frozen Soap Bubbles taken by a mother and son.

Tommy Lee is famous for his Cruecifly live drum solos.  As Motley Crue embarks on their farewell tour, here’s a look at how he’s doing it now.  This was amazing to see in concert.

Dorkly brings us a collection of some pretty cool Disney/Star Wars Mashups.

There’s more Disney to ponder with 7 Scenes That REALLY Should’ve Happened.

7 Tweaks to Disney Films That Would Change Everything We Know About Them

Lastly- and by no means least- baby girl here completely DESTROYS her friend in what can’t even be called a beatbox battle.  Even if this isn’t you’re kinda thing, just sit back and enjoy the show.

Another great creative mind at work: Joe Phillips gives us our favorite classic movie stars reimagined as Golden Age superheroes.

Foodbeast introduces us to a Grilled Cheese Stuffed Crust Pizza.  Yeah, baby!

A delicious BLT dip recipe that takes almost no time and is pretty tasty.

Ingredients:
1-1/2 pound bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled, and divided
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded) or to taste
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
1 tablespoons mustard
2 cups chopped seeded tomatoes
1-1/2 cup shredded Iceberg lettuce
pepper an salt to taste

Toasted bread rounds, crackers, or pita chips.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350˚. Spray a 11⁄2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Set aside 3/4 cup crumbled bacon.

In a large bowl, combine remaining bacon, cream cheese, shredded cheeses, sour cream, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and mustard. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle chopped tomatoes, remaining 3/4 cup crumbled bacon, and Iceberg lettuce over hot dip. Serve immediately with toasted bread rounds, crackers, or pita chips.

Enough of that healty shit!  Howzabout an Onion Ring stuffed with Hamburger.  Is it the Apocalypse, or just a damn good way to die?

Another artist imagines Marvel Superheroes doing famous album covers.  The Spiderman, Magneto and Daredevil versions are clever, but I’m partial to the Spiderwoman one, myself.

This one’s worth it for the Internet Explorer cartoon alone: Five Browsers and the Modes of Transportation They Resemble.

Let’s get this party started with some really important news: BACON FLAVORED SEAWEED!!!  Now Vegans can finally get their groove on!

Shit just got real!

Now back to our regularly scheduled amusements.

It’ll take you a few seconds, and then… BAM!!!

You up for some Deep Fried Lasanga Rolls?  I know I am.

To promote their new au naturel coffee creamer, Nestle set up shop with naked baristas- and some customers- covered only in body paint.

So… you’ll have what she’s having?

This is pretty smooth: the Piano Guys performing 50 years of Batman Music.

Speaking of Batman, Dorkly shows us the progression of grittiness in DC comics movies.

The new Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer that premiered at ComicCon.

And finally, Marvel Comics’ daring recreation of some classic Hip-Hop album covers.  Scroll through to see the comparisons to the originals.

See ya next time.

Saturday Morning Cartoons for June 26, 2015- Rainbow Connection Edition

I’ve always found it curious that the USA, and Western Culture as a whole, was always so proud of and quick to trumpet its Greco-Roman origins yet made such tremendous efforts to studiously avoid one of the standards, if not pillars, of those aesthetics: homosexuality and how many of the great thinkers and shapers of their philosophy and way of life were openly gay.  Slavery, too; they just didn’t have too many problems with that part.  But I digress.   As I told a gay co-worker just the other night when we were discussing gay marriage, social progress and change are always inevitable.  The only question is will they occur in our lifetimes.

Supreme Court Rules Same-Sex Marriage Legal in United States.  Judgments like this, so historic yet fundamental, can always be summed up in the simplest of terms: respect, dignity and honor.  And the SCOTUS wrapped this one up a rainbow colored ribbon with one paragraph.

In related news, this little gem almost goes unnoticed: Defense of Marriage Act rule Unconstitutional.

This Texas preacher’s reaction comes as no great suprise, or loss, if he actually follows through with it.

As this post from Vox reminds us, gays and lesbians have always been here, pledging their love to their partners.  And they always will be.  Deal with it.

(Shared from Facebook) THE $2.00 BILL I TRIED TO SPEND: IF YOU’RE AS OLD AS I AM, THIS IS A RIOT!

Everyone should start carrying $2 bills! I’m STILL laughing!!  I think we need to quit saving our $2 bills and bring them out in public. The younger generation doesn’t even know they exist!

Legal tender in all fifty states and Puerto Rico. #legit

STORY: On my way home from work, I stopped at Taco Bell for a quick bite to eat. I have a $50 bill and a $2 bill. I figure with the $2 bill, I can get something to eat and not have to worry about irritating anyone for trying to break a $50 bill.

Me: ‘Hi, I’d like one seven-layer burrito please, to go.’

Server: ‘That’ll be $1.04. Eat in?’

Me: ‘No, it’s to go.’ At this point, I open my billfold and hand him the $2 bill. He looks at it kind of funny.

Server: ‘Uh, hang on a sec, I’ll be right back.’

He goes to talk to his manager, who is still within my earshot. The following conversation occurs between the two of them:

Server: ‘Hey, you ever see a $2 bill?’
Manager: ‘No. A what?’
Server: ‘A $2 bill. This guy just gave it to me…’
Manager: ‘Ask for something else. There’s no such thing as a $2 bill.’
Server: ‘Yeah, thought so.’

He comes back to me and says, ‘We don’t take these. Do you have anything else?’

Me: ‘Just this fifty. You don’t take $2 bills? Why?
Server: ‘I don’t know.’
Me: ‘See here where it says legal tender?’
Server: ‘Yeah.’
Me: ‘So, why won’t you take it?’
Server: ‘Well, hang on a sec.’

He goes back to his manager, who has been watching me like I’m a shoplifter, and says to him, ‘He says I have to take it.’

Manager: ‘Doesn’t he have anything else?’
Server: ‘Yeah, a fifty. I’ll get it and you can open the safe and get change.
Manager: ‘I’m not opening the safe with him in here.’
Server: ‘What should I do?’
Manager: ‘Tell him to come back later when he has real money.’
Server: ‘I can’t tell him that! You tell him.’
Manager: ‘Just tell him.’
Server: ‘No way! This is weird. I’m going in back.

The manager approaches me and says,
‘I’m sorry, but we don’t take big bills this time of night.’

Me: ‘It’s only seven o’clock! Well then, here’s a two dollar bill.’
Manager: ‘We don’t take those, either.’
Me: ‘Why not?’
Manager: ‘I think you know why.’
Me: ‘No really, tell me why.’

Manager: ‘Please leave before I call mall security.’
Me: ‘Excuse me?’
Manager: ‘Please leave before I call mall security.’
Me: ‘What on earth for?’
Manager: ‘Please, sir..’

Me: ‘Uh, go ahead, call them.’
Manager: ‘Would you please just leave?’
Me: ‘No.’
Manager: ‘Fine — have it your way then.’
Me: ‘Hey, that’s Burger King, isn’t it?’

At this point, he backs away from me and calls mall security on the phone around the corner. I have two people staring at me from the dining area and I begin laughing out loud, just for effect.

A few minutes later this 45-year-oldish guy comes in.

Guard: ‘Yeah, Mike, what’s up?’
Manager (whispering): ‘This guy is trying to give me some (pause) funny money.’
Guard: ‘No kidding! What?’
Manager: ‘Get this. A two dollar bill.’
Guard (incredulous): ‘Why would a guy fake a two dollar bill?’
Manager: ‘I don’t know. He’s kinda weird. He says the only other thing he has is a fifty.’
Guard: ‘Oh, so the fifty’s fake!’
Manager: ‘No, the two dollar bill is.’
Guard: ‘Why would he fake a two dollar bill?’
Manager : ‘I don’t know! Can you talk to him, and get him out of here?’
Guard: ‘Yeah.’

Security Guard walks over to me and……
Guard: ‘Mike here tells me you have some fake bills you’re trying to use.’
Me: ‘Uh, no.’
Guard: ‘Lemme see ’em.’
Me: ‘Why?’
Guard: ‘Do you want me to get the cops in here?’

At this point I’m ready to say, ‘Sure, please!’ but I want to eat, so I say, ‘I’m just trying to buy a burrito and pay for it with this two dollar bill.

I put the bill up near his face, and he flinches like I’m taking a swing at him. He takes the bill, turns it over a few times in his hands, and he says, ‘Hey, Mike, what’s wrong with this bill?’
Manager: ‘It’s fake.’
Guard: ‘It doesn’t look fake to me.’
Manager: ‘But it’s a two dollar bill.’
Guard: ‘Yeah? ‘
Manager: ‘Well, there’s no such thing, is there?’

The security guard and I both look at him like he’s an idiot and it dawns on the guy that he has no clue and is an idiot.

So, it turns out that my burrito was free, and he threw in a small drink and some of those cinnamon thingies, too.

Made me want to get a whole stack of two dollar bills just to see what happens when I try to buy stuff.

Haha!!!!
