Hissy Customer at Tim Hortons Mad About Onions, Throws Snake for Emphasis

Tim-Hortons-Snake

Everyone has faced disappointment when it comes to fast food at some point. They can either cause a scene, complain to management or simply get over it. One customer decided to go with the lesser known fourth option: snake throwing.

An argument over diced onions at a Saskatoon Tim Hortons led to a shouting match between two customers and an employee. In the heat of the argument, one of the arguing customers decided it was a good idea to escalate the matter by reaching into his friend’s coat and pulling out a live snake.

He then chucked it over the counter at the Tim Hortons worker.

Now if you throw a snake in a restaurant, even a harmless one like a garter snake, you’re probably going to upset some folks. Amongst the screams of Tim Hortons patrons, the police were called to take the two suspects into custody and catch the snake.

They are both facing charges of causing a disturbance and mischief.

There have been no reports of injury and the garter snake is currently in a temporary home. It will be released back into the Canadian wilds.

Well, That Was Awkward: Chipotle’s Bizarre Twitter Hack

chipotle-twitter-hack
So, what did you do this weekend? 

Chipotle: Oh, you know. Went on an epic search for an avocado in Colorado, learned how to pronounce “cilantro,” then asked the boo to pick up some groceries on the way. Typical weekend.

Er… 

This past Sunday afternoon, Chipotle’s Twitter account was seemingly taken over by the most nonsensical of hacks. Its usual responses from PR reps Joe and Candace were replaced by a series of bizarre tweets ranging from a question fit for Siri (“Find avocado store in Arvada, Colorado”) to a nonchalant request for groceries (“Hi sweetie, can you please pick up some lime, salt, and onions? twitter.”)

When Mashable reached out to the burrito chain for an explanation, the company simply responded, “I’m glad no one went Anthony Weiner on us, but everything seems to be fine.”

So was Chipotle hacked or is this just an ingenious marketing stunt? Or aliens? Must be aliens.

Apparently, Foodbeasters Who Concoct Bizarre Food Combinations Are Also Binge Eaters

Beer and bacon deep fried Doritos, pizza ice cream, spam and peanut butter cookies – if you’re one of our regular readers, you know that we at Foodbeast are no strangers to the bizarre food combination scene. But did you also know that “concocting” such outlandish treats could be a telltale sign you’re a binge eater?

According to a study done by the University of Alabama Birmingham, an estimated 8 million people in the U.S. suffer from binge-eating disorders, and “people who concoct are more likely to binge eat than those who overeat without bingeing.”

Those who admitted to concocting reported “the same emotions as drug users during the act,” such as “excitement” and “anxiety,” as well as later feelings of “shame and disgust.”

41.2% of the “concocting participants,” moreover, explained the behavior was most often due to a “craving,” while only 9% reported hunger as a motive – all of which makes me wonder just how telling such a study could be after all. I mean, maybe we just have better food than everybody else.

To wit, here’s a list of some of our best/worst binge-iest food posts ever:

Chocolate Skulls From Human Molds

 

Let’s face it. Today’s generation is pretty damn spoiled with all the cool new ways we’re presented with food. Chicken Wing Cupcake, anyone? So how can you make eating chocolate just a little bit more exciting? Get some that’s made from the mold of a real human skull, that’s how.

Created by Marina Malvada, the skulls are a mix of Belgium white and milk chocolates created with a mold that Malvada was able to make from a skull she cast in plaster.

The skulls are available in different forms of chocolate depending on how you would like your skull to look. Each piece costs $200 USD. A hefty price for chocolate, but it’ll sure make up for it in conversation piece.
