Created by Brooklyn-based couple Rob Corso and Meg Sheehan as a Kickstarter project The Grilled Cheesus Sandwich Press will easily burn an image of Jesus on your lunch and perhaps offer salvation. Check one out over at their site. What Would Grilled Cheesus Do?
Reddit user LinkBoyJT posted an image Wednesday that started an interesting thread. Interesting and fairly gnarly. He ordered a hash brown and after eating most of it, felt what he ultimately claims was a deep-fried insect stuck to the bottom half. In the thread he says “I was eating a hash brown from McDonald’s on the way home when I felt something on the bottom…” GAH!!
The user wasn’t sure what the bug was. True to form Redditors quickly started to debate as to what exactly the bug was. One user offered information about the membranous wings “not hooked together,” which would distinguish the finding as a cockroach rather than a moth. Users suspected that the roach must have been in the delivery truck and became frozen to the hash brown and slipped by workers at the McDonald’s.
An update from the original poster popped up a bit later:

I’m still on my Easter themed Peep kick. Rather, I still have leftover Peeps that can – in one way or another – be sacrificed to the food gods. I last sacrificed three dozen Peeps to make some Rice Krispy treats with a technicolor twist. I had given some serious consideration to sharing that with my co-workers. After a taste test I thought better of it and consumed the whole thing by myself, over the course of a week.
I had read up on several attempts to deep fry Peeps. Often as not the Peep would nearly disintegrate or the coating would come slipping off, leaving virgin marshmallow to be decimated by hot oil. I jumped into this knowing only what had been tried before and didn’t work. There’s not a lot of documented deep-frying of Peeps going on, clearly. Continue reading
