Ted Cruz revealed his disturbing, yet poetic, feelings about queso



Before you read this, go eat some queso.

Seriously, listen to me. Don’t read further. Go happily enjoy some queso, then return.

Now that you’re back, it’s time for you to watch this clip of Ted Cruz describing what makes Texas queso so magnificent.

The clip, tweeted by Jordan Rudner, a Washington correspondent for Dallas News, begins very normally. “It just tastes good,” he says. It’s a sweet and simple answer, and one he shouldn’t have continued to explain. Read more…

Kid Rock is selling Trump shirts and they’re as bad as you’d expect



The best place to voice your politics is on your t-shirt.

No one knows that fact quite like Kid Rock, the badass musician who’s essentially just America’s uncle you’re worried about running into at the familyreunion. But he showed up. On a motorcycle. And he’s about to scream during a game of bocce ball.

He kicked off the shirt collection with a bold slogan. 

You know what they say: no amount of text is too much for a shirt and no text is too incomprehensible to print! Read more…

It’s important to be proud of your hard work.

You might be wondering, “Will the carrots make it exceedingly difficult to open up the cabinets?” I understand why you’re thinking that, but a true talent for interior design knows that sometimes you gotta sacrifice efficiency in the name of artistry.  Read more…

A startup is turning beer leftovers into gourmet granola bars



Now there’s a better drunk food than pizza.

A company in San Francisco called Regrained is selling beer granola bars. (Don’t worry, they don’t actually contain alcohol.)

Because only 10 percent of the ingredients used to make beer make it to the final product, Regrained sought out a way to repurpose those leftovers. 

With the slogan “Eat Beer,” the company turns the scraps of grain left over from the beer-making process — along with ingredients like organic honey, puffed quinoa, chocolate and sea salt — into tasty snack bars.  Read more…

Barack Obama would at least do better in digital media than Rory Gilmore



On Friday, Mic released an article called “Obama considering post-presidential media career, sources say.” 

Even though the article contains a statement from White House communications director Jen Psaki in which she states, “While the president will remain actively engaged in inspiring young people and he is interested in the changing ways people consume information, he has no plans to get into the media business after he leaves office,” we’re all spending our Friday evening talking about these rumors.

So why would Barack Obama desire a career in new media after spending eight years rapidly aging due to the massive stress of being president of the USA? Could it be a love for content, a passion for meals consisting of free cereal and seltzer or a desire to download sick apps like Meerkat that will inevitably fade before ever catching on with the general public?

Man catches a catfish that, simply put, is f*cking huge



The word “fish” doesn’t do this creature justice.

“Loch Ness Monster” or “small whale” might be more appropriate for this 112-pound catfish caught in the Northeast Cape Fear River in North Carolina.

On the day before Thanksgiving, Riahn Brewington found this monstrous catfish. 

Brewington told a North Carolina ABC affiliate about the fish, saying, “In the water, it felt like it was pretty big, but like I said being that big I thought it would have already snapped the line, but I didn’t realize how big he was until I actually got my hands underneath him.” Read more…
