Wanna know how to make your own vanilla extract or read about what might be included in a "vegetarian survival kit?" You can find these interesting tidbits and more on Boing Boing, the website that catalogs "neat stuff," for lack of a better descriptor. Neat like what? Neat like a guide to making cookies that look like games of Tetris using a tool from Play-Doh.
BB is one of the many things that I view via my Google Reader, and I noticed a good amount of weird and wacky food posts over the last couple of weeks. I've been saving them up, but I'm pretty sure there are enough for a nice, meaty post. Speaking of meaty...have you ever tried to build your own smoker out of a trashcan? Now you can! Or you could learn to embroider a picture of a pig divided into primal cuts. Not into DIY? You may be more interested in the fruit-flavored chewing gum that is shaped and packaged like bologna slices.
