Man's Kickstarter Campaign Raises Over $30,000 – for Potato Salad

UpdatePosted 07/07/2014 06:50PM

The Internet Keeps Giving This Guy Money to Make Potato Salad

Ask the Internet for potato salad and you'll have an OK side dish. Ask the Internet to help you make potato salad and you'll find yourself awash in unexpected donations.

Earlier this month, an Ohio man who calls himself Zach Danger Brown realized he had never once in his life made potato salad. As a lark, Brown decided to crowdsource his first-ever attempt at the classic side dish, setting up a Kickstarter project to raise money for ingredients.

He didn't ask for much. Just $10 – enough to buy a few potatoes, some mayonnaise, and maybe some spices (for extra zest).

In an Internet full of big dreams, Brown's comically modest goal stood out. He soon gained a legion of fans who added their own spin to the gag by funding the project at levels well ahead of its founder's goals.

Originally posted 06/22/2014 03:35AM

Hey, remember the Cincinnati Bengals' Super Bowl-themed beer from the late '80s? No? Well, there's probably a reason for that.

Beer blogger Danny Spears recently offered his readers a challenge: If his Facebook page could get 1,000 Likes, he would chug one of the old HuDey beers in his possession.

Produced to honor the Bengals' trip to Super Bowl XXIII in January 1989 – their last championship game, it turned out – the cans had remained unopened for more than 25 years. What sort of hoppy magic lurked inside? Spears's Facebook fans couldn't wait to find out.

Watch: Here Is Why You Should Never Use 'Poupon' as a Verb

Originally posted 06/17/2014 10:45AM

What is it about Grey Poupon that makes it the most meme-able mustard ever?

Is it the taste? The logo? The name? (It's definitely the name.)

The Dijon mustard brand has already seen its iconic ads spoofed in Wayne's World. Now, the sketch-comedy group OBVS has envisioned a different campaign, one where the mustard turns its name into a verb, just like all the cool brands do.

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

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?"
