From Duff Beer to Butterbeer, a Comprehensive Illustration of Fictional Brews [Infographic]


If you’re a fan of fictional alcoholic beverages from years back (nostalgia alert), here’s a comprehensive illustration of “Fantastical Fictive Beers.” The poster features everything from Homer’s go-to Duff Beer to Family Guy’s Pawtucket Pat to the famous Alamo brew Hank Hill is seen sporting in Arlen, Texas. Pretty much any drink from a fictional movie, sitcom, or TV show you can think of, it’s on here.

Probably one of the best things about the graphic is that it delves deep into our childhoods. They’ve got  the late-great Mission Hill’s Gruber Hof, Mudder’s Milk from the Jaynestown episode of Firefly and even Samuel Jackson from a sketch during the Chappelle’s Show era.

And then you have the more recently popular drinks like (Spoiler Alert) late Hank Schrader’s Schraderbrau and the wizarding world’s Butterbeer. The amount of pop culture research and design that went into this graphic is absolutely ridiculous and most definitely appreciated by yours truly.

Of course, I can’t mention Samuel Jackson Beer without this beautiful NSFW clip.

The print is available at 18×24 for $28.


Here’s How To Make Edible Dexter Blood Slides


If Dexter ever took a dose of irony, dressed up as a serial killer for Halloween and threw a party, he’d serve up these sugary blood slides as desserts. Birthed from a “boring” Martha Stewart lollipop recipe, these edible blood samples are made from boiled sugar, melted and laid flat across baking sheets. Next, a heated blade is used to slice the sugar sheets into slides and a toothpick dipped in red dye for the perfect “blood droplets.”

So simple, genius and creepy. It’s suggested to make guests snap on a pair of latex gloves and eat the blood slides with a pair of tweezers — kind of like a pair of Dexter-esque chopsticks.

Full recipe and how-to here.


Bloody Dexter Cupcake May Give You a Paper Cut


Yum. The classic red velvet cupcake gets a bloody makeover by Magnolia Bakery for Showtime’s special Season 7 Dexter premiere party at Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall in NY. The to-die-for cupcakes are decorated with shards of sugar glass and drizzled with red simple syrup.

These babies are a great idea with Halloween right around the bend and/or make the perfect gift for that special someone. Cuz you know, nothing says “I love you” better than homicidal cupcakes.

The above image has been blowing up on Reddit, with bad puns such as “I’m baking muffins ASBESTOS I can!” and “Sounds paneful” left as amusing comment fodder. My favorite of the bunch: “Cupcake Roulette.”

Btw, in case you missed it, check out “How To Eat A Cupcake” and get ready to be schooled.

Dexter Blood Sample Coasters

Any Dexter fan will immediately recognize these slides of blood samples that our man stows away in his collection after each gruesome murder. Now, you can have your own collection of blood-stained glass slides to bust out when you have guests over, only these slides don’t bear the potential to implicate you for murder later down the line…because they’re just coasters.

My friend actually owns glass coasters just like these, only without the Dexter logo and the blood was a lot more soluble… I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about.

Dexter Fans! Take a Lick of this Candy Trophy Case

Ghosts, skeletons and mummies aren’t really scary these days. But serial killers, those are scary! Especially the super psychotic ones with a ton of tricks up their sleeves. If you watch Dexter religiously, you already know what these are. If you don’t, let us fill you in.

Dexter is a show…about a guy…named Dexter…that works as a blood splatter analyst for the Miami Police Department by day and is a notorious serial killer by night. Every serial killer needs to keep odd mementos from their victims, and Dexter‘s trophy case happens to be a box of slides containing a drop of blood from each victim.

These edible slides make a disturbingly awesome Halloween treat. They are also easy and cheap to make. Nothing more than a little sugar, corn syrup, and red food coloring. For detailed instructions, download the pdf for Dexter Blood Slide Suckers.
