These Chefs Show Us What Cooking Pokemon Would Look Like

The Pokemon GO craze doesn’t seem to be slowing down, and why would it? Everyone and their mothers are obsessed with this game.

That being said, there are also pockets of people here and there that straight up despise the game. Their reasoning for hating it varies greatly, from saying it’s childish to genuine concern for people’s safety. Either way, they’re not into it.

Whether these chefs fall under the former or the latter is hard to tell, but both sides can agree that this photo is hysterical regardless of your feelings on the game. Redditor shavot found this picture on a local restaurant’s Facebook page and, thankfully, shared it with the world. Not only do these chefs manage to cook all three starter pokemon (can you spot Bulbasaur?) including Pikachu, but they even take it a step further by cooking them in appropriate ways when considering their types. 

Love it or hate it, these chefs killed it. Or rather, them. And by them, I mean the smiling, innocent Pokemon.

Dinner’s ready!

Charmander over a flame and Squirtle going into a pot of boiling water are absolutely amazing, right up there with Pikachu getting his head chopped off and the row of Pokemon eggs waiting to be cracked and used. Even the Bulbasaur cameo is enough to warrant a hearty laugh. But the one that stood out to me the most, and is my favorite, is the complete decimation of Bellsprout. I think we all know that he’s going to end up as a garnish on some kid’s plate of chicken fingers.

Man Discovers Exactly Why You Should Never Try To Make Sushi At Home

3537413623_f4bbf3ca2e_o-e1453415321129

One Canadian man learned the hard way that making sushi is best left to the master chefs at restaurants after his severe abdominal pains revealed a horrifying scene taking place in his stomach.

A recently published medical case titled “An unusual case of abdominal pain” tells of an unidentified 50-year-old man from Alberta who was admitted to the hospital in August 2014 with severe abdominal pain and vomiting.

The man had attempted to make sushi for himself by buying raw salmon from his nearby grocery store only hours before.

An x-ray at the hospital revealed an anomaly in his stomach, so doctors guided a camera down his esophagus to look inside his stomach.

Doctors discovered that the man’s pain was due to rare parasitic anisakis worms trying to borrow through his stomach lining — had they succeeded, the man would have suffered from long-term complications. The worms had to be surgically removed.

While some stores legitimately sell “sashimi grade” salmon, most selections at typical grocery stores are not fresh enough to eat raw.

It is recommended that you have sushi prepared by a professional chef at a restaurant or, if possible, to “freeze the fish for seven days at −20 C (-4 F) or at a lower temperature for a shorter period of time (less than −20 C for four days).”

If you aren’t sure how fresh that fish at the store is, it’s probably best you leave it to the professionals — after all, unlike a sushi chef, you probably didn’t spend 10 years to master the art of sushi.

This ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actor Just Killed His Ex-Girlfriend’s Pet Rabbit for Dinner

Dimitri Diatchenko, aka “That Dangerous Russian Guy in Every TV Show for the Past Two Decades,” is now legitimately dangerous. The extremely typecast actor recently killed his ex-girlfriend’s rabbit, then cooked and ate it.

(Insert stream of expletives indicating disbelief here).

In true film industry style, the bunny’s death served an artistic purpose. Diatchenko filmed the entire process, copying a scene from Fatal Attraction.

“Diatchenko skinned the pet, cooked it and ate half of it while sending her step-by-step pictures of what he did,” according to a statement from the district attorney’s office, NY Daily News reports.

The actor, 46, was no longer dating his ex, but they still lived together. The crime was committed in retaliation for her wanting them to physically separate as well. When the woman returned home, she was threatened with the same fate.

Diatchenko is most well-known for losing a fight to Chuck Norris in Walker, Texas Ranger and being largely unmemorable in Sons of Anarchy. And now, this.

Listen to your mothers: don’t date actors. Bitches be trippin’.
