If you eat meat and enjoy eating fantastically delicious things and don’t mind spending a pretty penny while doing so, the one advice I would give you is to eat real, legitimate Peking duck. It is one of the awesomest dining experiences you can have because for one, it’s totally delicious in all the crispy and tender…
Duck is delicious. Fatty and rich and more flavorful and tongue punchy than chicken in every single way that I’m drooling over this duck burger topped with duck confit, pickled red cabbage, gruyere cheese and drizzled in hoisin sauce. It’s like if America and Asia and France teamed up to make a burger without beef.
The Foie-ck A Duck, ladies and gentlemen: "Sous vide duck breast, encrusted in a smattering of peppercorns, smothered in a foie gras cognac cream sauce, and feathered with freshly sliced summer truffle." I'm drooling so much right now—really, actual drool just came out of my mouth. I want this so badly.
There is an old wives' tale that a duck's quack has no echo. This has been proven not to be true in what can only be described as the best duck experiment ever. But the rumor has a basis in truth.
If you haven't heard yet, it's time you did: yesterday afternoon, U.S. Senate nominee Todd Akin said in a televised interview that women rarely get pregnant following instances of "legitimate rape," because the female body has ways to "shut that whole thing down."
Gilbert Gottfried, a pretty foulmouthed comedian and tasteless twitterer, was the voice of the Aflac Duck. You know, the duck that obnoxiously screeches AFFFLAAAACCKKK to sell insurance. Not anymore though, Aflac has fired Gottfried for posting dumb and insensitive tweets regarding Japan. He reportedly tweeted:
There may not be many ducks floating off Mexico's coast, but this iPhone app is certainly relevant to the ongoing BP oil spill disaster/shit-storm. The free app just hit the App Store today, and is educational as well as fun.
With the imminent release Rock Band 3, keytars have been on my mind a lot lately. Then again, when are they not? Anyway, here's the world's all-time greatest keytar-platypus Venn diagram to get you through the weekend.
A million fart app developers must've just started sobbing in hysterical fear as Apple decided to reject an app because it "contains minimal user functionality and will not be appropriate for the App Store."
Sous vide is French for cooking in a vacuum, placing sealed meat or veggies in water held at an exact temperature. Because this precision requires high technology, the method was solely for chefs—until the $450 SousVide Supreme arrived.
The galaxy 3C 454.3 is located 7.2 billion light years away, but it's suddenly become the brightest source of gamma rays in the sky. Its particle jet has increased 10 times since the summer — and it's aimed at us.
Thanko has released a new range of animal-themed mice. Both Mac- and Windows-compatible, you can have one of three beasties—duck, seal and frog—floating inside. They look like bath toys and cost $12.50. By the way, what noise does a seal make? I need help. Gallery after the jump.
Last week we received a letter. It was from a boy named Sam, who once had a $30 rubber ducky bath radio. He'd take baths with this duck every weekend, auto-scanning to find Casey's Top 40 while his fingers pruned up. It was the greatest time of his life, Sam told us.
Not only is this rubber duck pink—or "Paris", as they call it—it runs on only two AA batteries. You activate the duck by pressing his torso, which makes him bzzzz bzzzz bzzzz you into tranquility. If you happen to share a bathroom with roommates, or god forbid your parents, this is a good way to disguise your playtime…
You make bath time so much fun...apparently. For ages 18 and up.
Locomocean has decided to do the smart business move and take advantage of the American obsession over the iPod with their new iDuck.
