Man Dines And Dashes Straight Into The Sea After Eating Hundreds Of Dollars In Seafood

If you can’t afford to pay for dinner, you probably shouldn’t order hundreds of dollars in food. We feel this should be pretty common sense by now.

An Australian man and aspiring rapper found himself in hot water after he ordered $621 in seafood from Omeros Bros Restaurant in Main Beach, reports ABC Australia. Items he allegedly devoured included one baby octopus, two lobsters, 17 oyster shooters, and a lot of beer.

Not wanting to pay for such a lavish meal, Terry Peck (aka 2pec) decided to partake in the age-old art of dining and dashing.

What sets this particular dine-and-dash tale apart from countless others is that this guy decided he could make a clean break straight into the ocean. Check out this footage of his beach arrest.

Like Poseidon himself, the patron ran into the ocean.

Unfortunately for the dimwitted diner, authorities jumped into a life guard boat and pursued him.

So why did 2pec decide to take off into the ocean like the devil himself was chasing him? Peck claimed that he only left the restaurant to help a friend who was giving birth on the beach.

Could that friend of his possibly be Princess Atlanna of Atlantis? Either way, Peck says that he was arrested by authorities before he could find his friend.

He is currently facing charges of stealing and two counts of assault of a police officer.

McDonald’s Australia Is Letting You Snapchat Them Your Job Application

It seems the days of walking into a place of business and asking the manager for a job application are almost gone. While most people just go online and look for applications, McDonald’s Australia (or Macca’s, as the Aussies call it)  will be taking that process to the next level by letting you Snap and inform them if you’re interested in working with them, starting today.

They’re calling them “Snaplications,” and they’re providing a Snapchat filter that makes it look like you’re in uniform as you make your case for a job in 10 seconds or less.

As soon as McDonald’s reviews your Snaplication and thinks you have potential, they’ll redirect you to their careers site where you can download an actual application form.

It sounds like a lot of work when you can just go straight to their site for the application, but at least this way, there’s someone at McDonald’s seeing your exuberant, smiling face.

It’s kind of a fun idea, especially since 65 percent of McDonald’s Australia employees are under the age of 18, so this can be a tool to lure in the youth with technology they can relate to.

While McDonald’s won’t look at the Snaps and hire people on the spot, it’s an interesting first step that’s sure to get a lot of applicants vying for a job with the Golden Arches.

These Guys Drank Glasses Of ‘Sh*t The Bed’ Hot Sauce, Didn’t End Well [WATCH]

I honestly don’t know why my fellow coworkers keep trying insanely spicy foods, but it’s been a pleasure to watch them suffer, honestly.

My boys Elie Ayrouth and Rudy Cheney decided to drink a few Australian hot sauces, aptly called, “Bunster’s Shit The Bed Hot Sauces.”

Why they drank them out of wine glasses, I have no idea, but they went in head first to see just how spicy these sauces really were.

They drank a total of three different hot sauces, the first just being a tease, and not quite shit-the bed-worthy.

Just by sniffing the second one, though, Elie had to take a drink of water, saying it smelled like Paqui’s Fear the Reaper chip, which is considered the world’s hottest chip.

“This one is deep, and complex, and fu*ked up,” Elie said after taking a swig of the sauce.

Rudy said it felt like it was going into his brain, so the heat doesn’t necessarily just stay in your digestive system, apparently.

They actually said it might be worse than the infamous One Chip Challenge, because the heat just lingered in their bodies.

“I don’t even care how bitchy you sound right now, ’cause that wasn’t fun,” Rudy told Elie in the most serious tone.

The hottest one of the bunch, The Black Label Shit The Bed hot sauce, was THE epitome of shitting yourself. The label literally reads, “May cause anal leakage.”

I don’t even really know what anal leakage is, but I pray I never get it.

After taking a sip, they both frantically fidgeted in their chairs. Then there was a moment where Rudy just decided not to move.

“You guys are fu*ked up for this,” Elie said. “2017 is already fu*ked up. I’m so high right now.”

Yeah, this sauce just doesn’t seem fair. Good job, Bunsters. You almost killed my Foodbeast mates.

You can peep and order one of the three, or all three of the sauces at Bunsters Worldwide.

An Australian Restaurant Is Serving Nutella-Stuffed Fried Twinkies

It seems like every year, Australia tries to put us to shame with their larger than life dessert creations, and the trend keeps chugging along with these Deep-Fried Nutella Twinkies.

Piccolo Me in Sydney created these ambitious little Twinkies, injecting them with Nutella, breading them with crushed Weetbix (An Australian cereal), and deep frying them, of course. Then they drizzled more Nutella, topped it all with crushed Oreo cookies, and served it with a scoop of ice cream.

Yeah, we know, it sounds amazing.

This isn’t Piccolo Me’s first time making headlines with its Nutella creations. In January, the restaurant introduced the Maltella, a fried ice cream and Nutella-filled ball that made us drool.

A video posted by foodbeast (@foodbeast) on

The restaurant will have these Nutella-filled Twinkies on its menu starting next week.

This Is Australia’s Answer To In-N-Out

Down-N-Out-Cover

A while back In-N-Out held a pop up in Australia and everyone went nuts. With a taste for our beloved West Coast burger chain, a spot inspired by In-N-Out has popped up down under.

Called Down-N-Out, the restaurant is a pop up devoted to its namesake. While only available for two weeks, the restaurant is welcoming In-N-Out fans with open arms. Menu items include a take on the Double-Double, which you can order animal style tiger style and even add bacon to.

The pop up will be help at the Sir John Young Hotel, a pub in Sydney. It’ll stay there for two weeks as fast food aficionados flock in from all over to try the burgers.

The concept came from a group of burger-loving chefs, reports Mashable. After months of conceptualization, the Down-N-Out pop up was born.

Hipsters Found A Way To Ruin Coffee That’s Hysterical And Annoying

It turns out that even coffee, one of the last few bastions in the world of simple delights, is susceptible to being raped and defiled by the beanie-toting, opinion-flinging, artisinal-everything bearded goons we all know and hate called “hipsters.”

Australian-based writer Jamila Rizvi called out an unnamed Melbourne cafe (for their sake) on the presentation of the “coffee” she ordered. In an obvious attempt to be weird and trendy, this cafe decided to serve their coffee in three different beakers: one holding the liquidated coffee, one holding the hot water and one holding the cream.

Screen Shot 2016-06-01 at 12.40.29 PM

This absurd and obnoxious set up comes on a wooden board and is served with a spoon, so that you can mix your preferred amount of each ingredient into the fourth glass that wasn’t provided to you, because hipsters. Granted, they’d probably give you one if you asked, but still. This really is too much.

Jamila, along with a vast majority of Australians, expressed that she was getting tired of the Hipster culture and their ability to get their sticky, pseudo-weathered hands onto anything and everything that seems good and genuine.

“Hipsterism has gone too far when your coffee comes deconstructed. I wanted a coffee. Not a science experiment. I prefer to drink my coffee out of crockery and not beakers. Next stage? I’ll just get a chopping board with a bunch of actual coffee beans and an upside down hat on it.”

Some people came to the defense of these hipsters on Jamila’s post, saying that they, “love this idea because you never know how strong a coffee is going to be and you can make it however strong or weak you like it.” A decent idea, although if that was a big concern for you, wouldn’t you just make it at home?

After all is said and done, ordering a cup of coffee should always be easy and convenient. It’s coffee, not a congressional bill, so take it easy hipsters.

Domino’s Found A Way To Bake An Entire Pizza In 4 Minutes

Dominos-Deal

Sure, ordering a pizza gets easier year after year. You can literally Tweet an emoji and a pizza will be sent right to your home. The only downside is the waiting game.

As easy as it is to order, you still have to wait at least 15-20 minutes for that pizza to be made. Even longer if you’re waiting for delivery. Now, Domino’s has found a way to get that pizza done much faster.

Mashable reports that the pizza company is developing an oven that will cook a pizza in only three minutes.

Called Project 3:10, the machine made its debut in Australia. While its initial prototype clocked the pizza-making process at 4 minutes and 10 seconds, it will continue to work out the bugs until they get that number down to 3.

The science behind it comes from “smart ovens” that add heat directly to the pizza at the right amount of time and speeds up the baking process.

A traditional Domino’s pizza takes 7 minutes and 15 seconds to cook.

Domino’s is also striving to get that 3-minute pizza delivered in 10 minutes once it’s ready.

What a time to be alive.
