Arby’s Let Customers Go Behind Counter?

During a press event at Arby’s headquarters last week, the company officially launched its new $2.99 Grab-N-Go Meal Deal, which allows patrons to go behind the counter at any franchise location and grab as much roast beef as they can with their bare hands. ‘We’re thrilled to announce an exciting new dining option that lets customers step right into our kitchen and dig hands – first into our famous slow-roasted beef,’ spokesman Gavin Milne said while standing in front of a cardboard cutout that depicted Oven Mitt — the Arby’s mascot — cupping a steaming mound of beef slices. ‘As soon as we ring up your transaction, you have 15 seconds to grab all the meat you can carry, and however much you manage to bring back across the counter is yours to eat—all for under $3! Who could resist?” w/ photos

Beer Cheese Soup

“Based on the name alone I’m sure that you can probably pick out that the two main ingredients in beer cheese soup are beer and cheese. Aside from that though the rest of the recipe is pretty much open to interpretation. A lot of restaurants for example like to top the soup with pieces of popcorn. I on the other hand prefer using diced bits of bacon. I think what I’m most impressed about by this beer cheese soup recipe (aside from how great it tasted) was how good the picture of it ended up looking.” w/ photos

Elephant Massage Redux

“Tourists queuing up for the latest Thai massage will be in for a monstrous surprise when they discover the masseuse is in fact an elephant. The weight behind this three tonne elephant’s trunk and foot is certain to kneed away the most stubborn of stress knots, yet lying down in front of the lumbering giant at the Maesa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai, Thailand might not be the most relaxing setting for a back massage.” — barcroftmedia

Top 10 Wizards In Literature

“In the last century, entertainment has taken huge leaps forward with the advent of first radio, then television, movies and the Internet. However, one form of entertainment has evolved – writing, specifically novels and the long form of fiction. Funny thing about that evolution is that the fiction genre of fantasy has only just started growing in popularity over the last 30 years or so, despite the best efforts of authors like J.R.R. Tolkien. The history and fascination with fantasy has been around for centuries (think fairy tales and the Brothers Grimm), but only with modern publication and the acceptance of the geek culture has fantasy really surged in popularity. In that time, there have been at least 10 really excellent wizards and sorcerers to strut their stuff across the literary landscape – and here they are in no particular order.” w/ photos
