[VIDEO] Squirrel Identity Theft! 

BBC Springwatch recently shared this awesome video of a grey squirrel using one of our Horse Head Squirrel Feeders. He’s determined to retrieve a tasty treat from inside the feeder, but in the meantime he looks like a horse-squirrel hybrid who’s possibly had one too many hazelnut daiquiris.

Department of Delicious Deception: Realistic Turkey Cake Pops

Thanksgiving is over, but the Department of Delicious Deception is still enjoying roast turkey in the form of these awesome Realistic Turkey Cake Pops. Creative baker Semadar Gordel of the COOKIEdough custom bakery made these tiny turkey treats using lemon-flavored cake and strawberry frosting. The drumsticks and wings are made of fondant and the succulent caramel-colored turkey skin is fondant that’s been hand-painted with a mixture of gel food coloring and vodka.

If you find yourself craving Turkey Cake Pops, Gordel also created an excellent Instructables tutorial so that you can make your own batch of itty-bitty roast birds.

Look Out, Daylight Savings Time is Coming: Bomb-Shaped 10 Sec Countdown Alarm Clock

This is pretty funny. Apparently it works best with USB plugged in, not via batteries, if you plan to really use it as a clock, rather than just a novelty count-down device.  Why not have a couple of sticks of (pretend) dynamite for a clock? Wouldn’t the bomb be a wake-up motivator? …if you had this beside your bed?
