An oldie but a goodie (yummy? fatty?), reposted in honor of Taste Test: Xeni at BoingBoing deep-fries cellphones. It's all well and good until someone brings out the cookie dough. Then, things get ugly. I'll stick with boiling.



Note!: Xeni didn't really eat a phone, because that would kill you; that last one was a fried Pop Tart. Admittedly, still pretty gross.


Taste Test is our weeklong tribute to the leaps that occur when technology meets cuisine, spanning everything from the historic breakthroughs that made food tastier and safer to the Earl-Grey-friendly replicators we impatiently await in the future.
