Watch a Golden Retriever and a German Shepherd Compete in a Spaghetti-Eating Competition

You can already kind of tell..

All my life, I thought I ate spaghetti pretty quickly. I mean, I sort of eat like a duck -- light on the chew, heavy on the swallow and stomach-ache-time quickly afterward. If I really wanted, I could probably finish a plate in three minutes.

But man, I have nothing on these dogs. I didn't grow up with pets, so I didn't even think a golden and a german shepherd would be particularly down for pasta, but, well, you just have to watch I guess.

Conan O'Brien and Jordan Schlansky Go to Intelligentsia

"Help me"

Since Conan made the move the basic cable, I've thought that his best bits were his remotes and his segments with his staff, especially the ones with associate producer (?) Jordan Schlansky. Schlansky dead pan not-so-straight man is a perfect sounding board for Conan's insult-heavy wit, and whenever they share screen time (whether it's cleaning Schlansky's office or taking away his espresso machine) magic happens.

Well, this time Conan took Schlansky, who is a confirmed coffee addict, to LA coffee king Intelligentsia.

What happens? Lots and lots of shenanigans. Check it out after the jump.

Watch Steve Yuen Becomes a Korean Food Porn Star and Lose Everything He Ever Loved

Recognize him?

All of you know that live streaming meals was a trend in Korea for a bit right? People (mostly attractive girls) would eat in front of a webcam and attract audiences large enough to make a fairly decent chunk of change. Well, if you didn't, now you do, so I can introduce you to this series of videos featuring Steve Yuen of Walking Dead fame (also the actor I'd tap to play me if I ever need one) returning to his homeland to try to make it big in Korea.

Before he can make it as a movie star, his manager forces him into the world of food porn. It's an adventure, full of love, loss, food, death, and crime, and it's pretty funny, so I recommend you check it out after the jump.

This Is How the McRib Is Made (With a Dash of Grant Imahara)


Everyone knows the McRib isn't actually made with pork ribs, but have you ever wondered what it's actually made of? No? Oh, okay.

Well, McDonald's made a video of the process they use to make the McRib anyways, just to settle your stomachs. I'll give you guys a tl;dw, it involves pork shoulder and lots of machines.

Still though, if you've got five minutes then it's a pretty interesting video. Former Mythbuster Grant Imahara and totally real person Wes Bellamy (Not joking, he's actually a real person), take a tour of an Oklahoma City factory where pork shoulders from roasts to mince meat and pork legos.

Check it out after the jump.

This Is How America's Second Strongest Man Eats


I've always been curious about how high-level athletes eat. I got my first glimpse when Michael Phelps went viral with his 12,000-calorie diet so when I saw that Vice's MUNCHIES vertical was starting series of videos with athletes, well, I was pretty interested.

The first video follows strong man Robert Oberst, the second strongest man in America. It's labeled 20,000-calorie diet, but a funny thing happened along the way to the end of the 10-minute video. Instead of a sped up montage of an entire day's worth food consumed in 20 minutes, Vice follows Oberst as he waxes poetic on everything about food, fuel, family, and life.

It's a good watch and you should check it out after the jump.

This Is What Happens When You Serve McDonald's At a Fancy Food Convention


My love of fast food is pretty public. What's not to like? It's tasty, it's cheap, I don't have to get out of my car or interact with people (let's just ignore how much I feel like I have to nap afterwards, and the accelerated dying). The guys in this video agree, so much that they decided to chop up some McDonald's food and serve it in some fancy food expo.

What happens? Well, you'll have to watch the video to find out. But I got to say, people are pretty gullible.

Geeking Out: Making Zombie Sound FX With Food

We won't look at cantaloupe the same way again. Ever.

The last place we expected to find food blog inspiration was at a Game Stop. Standing in line, waiting to trade in some used titles for Madden NFL 15, it actually found us.

While we normally tune out everything around us (expect for the cashier saying "Next"), this particular instance had us zoning out by viewing what was on the monitor. Imagine our surprise when the topic was all about creating and editing zombie-eating noises. Eeep!

VIDEO: We Make (and Eat) a Pizza Cake

Ah, jeez. I was hoping nobody would see this.

Look, this is sort of embarrassing, okay? This is basically my version of having a homemade sex tape get leaked.

When my editor told me he was going to cook me a pizza cake, and that I was actually going to be allowed to eat it, I wondered what the catch was. None, he assured me -- I just had to consent to being filmed while I gorged myself like a ravenous beast. And now here's the video. We made a pizza cake, and I ate it.

John Oliver Kills Pumpkin Spice With Newest Rant


I've been kind of over pumpkin spice since last year, when the major coffee chains came out with their autumn drinks in August during a Seattle heat wave (they happen, and they're horrible), but I never gotten around to writing one of my rants about it, and now it might be too late.

Why? Well, the hillarious John Oliver took shots at pumpkin spice in his latest segment on Last Week Tonight, and he basically covers everything I wanted to say.

My favorite highlight: "It's that special time of year where we voluntarily imbibe pumpkin spice lattes, the coffee that tastes like a candle."

Ever wanted to know what part of the cow "Chuck" beef comes from? Or where a seven-bone roast lives?

Well, this infographic from Cattleman's Beef Board, the people behind "Beef, It's What's for Dinner Campaign will sort of answer those questions and more! It goes over the standard grocery store cuts of beef, and features the tri tip, which for some reason only existed in California until fairly recently.
