This 100-Year-Old Woman Celebrated Her B-Day By Crushing A Game Of Beer Pong

This lovely lady has just won our hearts with her incredible beer pong skills. She’s Foodbeast’s new spirit animal, and everything that us 20-somethings aspire to be in life.

The video was taken at the woman’s backyard birthday bash and posted to Facebook. Notice the guest of honor wear a sash that bears her age of the big-100.

She demonstrates the highest level of skill as she seamlessly sinks the final shot in what looks to be her first try at it. She channels a true Rocky Balboa moment after sinking her shot, amidst shock from her family members on hand.

What a way to turn 100 and show up those grandkids. Grandma also received a good amount of deserved internet fame from the video.

This Machine Turns Almost ANY Food Into Dippin’ Dots

imperial_spherificator_1

Meet the Imperial Spherificator. It’s a device that uses molecular gastronomy to turn almost any food into tiny spheres, kind of like Dippin’ Dots. As long as you can liquefy a food, you can turn it into tiny edible balls with this thing! Currently it’s crowdfunding on Kickstarter, so if you want one of your own, head over HERE to contribute. Earlybirds can snag one for $100 and prices go up from there. Totally worth it even if you do just use it once and it ends up collecting dust in a kitchen cabinet after that. Isn’t that right, Rollie? You know what I’m talking about!

What It Looks Like When You Order 100 Slices Of Pork In Your Ramen Bowl

100-Chashu-Slices

P.K. from RocketNews24 is our hero. The reporter decided he wanted to tackle 100 slices of chashu in a single bowl of ramen, so that’s exactly what he ordered. Chashu, a fatty pork belly that’s braised until tender and served in slices, is a common topping for ramen.

Ramen chain Ishiyaki Ramen Kazan was holding a promotion where 30 slices of chashu could be added to your ramen. Typically, a regular ramen bowl only boasts 2-3 slices. Thirty slices of pork, however, wasn’t going to cut it for P.K.

The writer asked the restaurant to add an unheard of 100 slices.

100-Chashu-Slices-2

It cost about $85, Mashable reports.

While he was only tackle about 40 slices, the reporter gets mad props for attempting such a feat. Pretty sure his body’s thanking him for calling it quits.

This Is What A $100 Donut Looks Like

Donutopia-100

How much would you pay for a warm, freshly fried donut? If you’re in West Kelowna, Canada, you could shell out a few extra bucks and grab yourself a “Donutopia” from Dolicious Donuts.

The $100 donut is made with Bling H20 luxury water, at $39 a bottle. The breakfast pastry itself is covered in 24-carat gold flakes and sugar “diamonds.” The luxury donut is served in a carefully molded sugar bowl.

Apparently it takes about five hours to make one, and while it’s a hefty price, the donut is said to be pretty delicious.

The good news is that all the proceeds from Donutopia will go towards building a soup kitchen in West Kelowna. So it’s definitely an admirable cause.

This Guy Walks Around Town Giving $100 Envelopes to Fast Food Workers, Still on the Loose

Hundred-Fastfood

A Massachusetts man has tested positive for the Christmas Spirit this holiday season.

Local fast food employees of Barnstable, a town in Massachusetts, received a $100 bill over the last few days from a mysterious man. The man would hand them white envelopes with the words “Merry Christmas” in large red writing. Inside, there was no letter or card, simply just the $100 piece of paper.

Recipients of the money describe the cash as crisp, as if just withdrawn from the bank.

While most good Samaritans pay it forward to a single employee, this guy pretty much covers the entire fast food establishment. Reports say he will enter the store asking to speak with the manager, asks how many workers are employed at the store, and hand over as many $100 envelopes as there are workers.

No word yet on the identity of this mysterious humanitarian. Until then, we’re coining the name C-Note Santa.

‘Zillion Dollar’ Grilled Cheese Comes with Foie Gras, 24K Gold Flaked Wisconsin Cheddar

grilledcheese

We can’t presume to know why the 1% do anything they do. Once the houses and boats and kids’ private preschools and spare Lambos have been paid off, maybe they really don’t have anything better to do with their money than shit gold.

It’d certainly explain this obnoxiously plush grilled cheese sandwich. New at the deca restaurant at The Ritz Carlton Chicago, the ‘Zillion Dollar’ Grilled Cheese actually just costs $100, which is kind of a steal when you consider what goes into the damn thing. Let’s count: thinly sliced Iberico ham made from free-roaming, acorn-eating Spanish pigs. Artisan sourdough bread. 40 year aged, 24K gold flaked Wisconsin cheddar. Hudson Valley foie gras, white truffle aioli, and a sunny-side-up duck egg.

Lest that price tag still make your blue blood a little thin, the ‘wich also comes with a side skillet of lobster macaroni and cheese. Available until the end of April for National Grilled Cheese Month.

New York Artist Turns Doomsday Prepper by Serving Gourmet Rats for $100 a Pop

It’s almost August now, which means we’re about 2/3 of the way through the year or 2/3 of the way closer to the zombie apocalypse, so it might be a good idea for us to all to step back, take a breather and cut a page from the book of artist Laura Ginn – who recently served a $100-a-head gourmet dinner made almost entirely from rats.

Yes, you read that right. $100. For rats.

As part of a photography and performance event called “Tomorrow We Will Feast Again on What We Catch,” a group of about twenty New Yorkers got the chance to sup on a succulent meal of rat and pork paté and braised and grilled rodent carcass, among other ratty incarnations.

Ginn’s Kickstarter page explains: “I’ve spent the past year and a half working on a new project exploring self-sufficiency in an urban environment,” Ginn writes. From building her own shelters to making her own leather from actual animal skins, Ginn has tapped into our hunter-gatherer roots and perhaps provided diners the key to making it out of 2012 alive.

Granted, the 75 rats used to create the meal weren’t your average NYC bottom feeders and were in fact delivered cleaned and frozen from a medical facility in California. But the “post-apocalyptic hunter-gatherer feast” still managed to both gross out and engross, even when served on a goat cheese crostini or as a jerky slice dessert on French toast.

For just $2000, you can have your very own private dinner made from Master Splinter’s cousins; $5000 will get you a private dinner for four.

Cowabunga.
