Hiding Spider-Man on wedding cakes is apparently becoming a trend

After redditor PoliticalMilkman posted this photo of his cousin's wedding cake yesterday, both other redditors and Neatorama noted that this isn't the first time they've spotted Spider-Man hiding under a wedding cake. Is Spider-Man trying to slip away while the miniature groom is preoccupied? Or will they cut the cake… » 2/17/13 10:30am 2/17/13 10:30am

No fandom is safe from the relentless assault of Winnie the Pooh

We all know Winnie the Pooh as a beloved children's book character, a Disney icon and, of course, a honey fetishist. But the "willy nilly silly old bear" and his friends have made three recent incursions into nerd-dom that may indicate a more concerted effort by the denizens of Hundred Acre Wood to take over every… » 11/23/12 7:30am 11/23/12 7:30am

Fresalina Limoneta is the scariest slice of lab-grown cake you've ever…

I think that lab-grown meat and burgers, for example, could soon become a great way to circumvent a lot of the environmental and ethical problems of today's meat industry.

Dark Knight Marketing Campaign Goes Berzerk

We couldn't be more excited about Batman: The Dark Knight... or more sick of Warner Bros.' marketing campaign for the movie. When it was just sky-writing planes over Comic-Con and "Jokerized" dollar bills, we were sort of amused. But when Warner started baking Joker-cakes, we got indigestion. A gallery of weird schwag… » 1/14/08 11:40am 1/14/08 11:40am
