Louisiana Truck Crash Spills 75,000 Corn Dogs Across Interstate 220

Originally posted 03/27/2014 11:05AM

Louisiana's newest restaurant is just off the highway – literally. Months after 40,000 pounds of ham spilled off a Georgia onramp, a semi crash scattered thousands of corn dogs across an interstate.

According to local news station KTBS, a tractor trailer hauling a load full of packaged corn dogs overturned on I-220 outside of Shreveport, La., Tuesday morning, spilling 75,000 sticks of the fried snack across the highway. There were no injuries, but the mounds of spilled dogs caused nine hours of delays while police cleaned up the delicious debris.

Cereal: It's what's for breakfast (and lunch and, sometimes, dinner).

Which is why we're happy that Friday is National Cereal Day, celebrating Americans turning their backs on the pork, beef and alcohol they used to enjoy in their morning meals in favor of oats, grains and corn syrup.

To celebrate the occasion, why not pour out a big bowl of your favorite cereal – Grape-Nuts with blueberry syrup, we're talking to you – and load up Netflix with these films, which we've reimagined to be cereal-themed.

Watch: Oscar Winner Cate Blanchett Once Starred in a Biscuit Commercial

Originally posted 03/06/2014 11:00AM

Years before she was an Oscar winner, Cate Blanchett had a simpler goal: Get her hands on as many Tim Tams as she could.

In a commercial that ran in her native Australia in the 1990s, the Blue Jasmine star met a genie, who promised her three wishes – all of which she used on an unlimited supply of the chocolatey biscuits. As the ad's tagline puts it: "Tim Tams – what more could you want?"

Meet the Bionic Chef Who Cooks with an Electronic Hand

How Eduardo Garcia Became a Bionic Chef

Originally posted 11/30/2013 04:00PM

It was a motionless baby bear that caught Eduardo Garcia's attention during a hike in the Montana backcountry in 2011. Curious, Garcia nudged the animal with his knife and realized too late that the bear was covering a live power line that carried 2,400 volts.
