Instant Curry Comes With A Fake Girlfriend To Keep You Company


Your next dish of instant curry will never be as intimate as the ones found in Japan. Village Vanguard, a novelty bookstore in Japan, serves packages of instant curry. What’s unique about this item is that it comes with a fake girlfriend.

Rocket News reports that the curry can be purchased with a DVD that features a fictitious girlfriend that keeps you company as you eat. This particular brand is called Men’s Delusion Curry: Orange Flavored Feat. Mao Harada.

For 1,500 yen ($13 US) you can get your curry, along with a DVD that features Harada interacting with you like she cares. At least for the duration of the meal. She even sports a T-shirt of featuring her own cleavage imprinted.

Sounds like a perfect dinner package for the working man with no time for love.

Arby’s Is Giving Away Free DVDs Featuring Meat Cooking For 21 Hours


A while back, Arby’s did a live stream of meat smoking in a cooker for more than half a day. For 13 hours, die-hard barbecue enthusiasts watched patiently as a brisket smoked itself into the Book of World Records for the longest commercial aired.

In honor of the one-year anniversary for the 13-hour smoke, the fast food chain is giving out free DVDs of the brisket cooking. Anyone interested in watching the calming effects of meat in a smoker be sure to grab one before they run out.

The DVD box set includes the original 13-hour footage of the brisket. There’s also an additional 8 hours of turkey smoking. A total of 6 DVDs chronicling 21 hours of meat cooking is available.

As of now, the first batch of the DVD collection has been sold out. However, patrons are encouraged to continue checking in every day for a new batch.


Olive Garden Resorts to Buy Two Dinners, Get Free Movie Deal


You’d be hard-pressed to find a foodie who actually likes Olive Garden. Who likes unlimited breadsticks, sure. Who likes liking things ironically, fine. Who likes cheap food and even cheaper movies? Okay, you might have us there.

From now through September 21, Olive Garden is partnering with Redbox to offer a new “Dinner, Dinner & A Movie Deal.” To-go guests simply pick two dishes from OG’s “Buy One Take One” menu, then text their Olive Garden restaurant and check number to ‘727272’ to receive a promo code for a free 1-Day Redbox Blu-Ray or DVD rental.

Dishes on the BOTO menu include spaghetti with meat sauce, fettuccine alfredo, shrimp alfredo, and more, with prices ranging from $14 – $19 approximately. Sure it’s a little pricier than your standard frozen pasta TV dinner, but at least you don’t have to cook it yourself.

AmeriCone Cream and Hairy Garcia are What Happens When a XXX-Company Releases a Line of Ben & Jerry’s Themed Pornos

Well here’s an answer to a question no one was asking, but it’s probably safe to say the makers of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream probably aren’t “screamers.”

Yesterday, Vermont’s Finest filed a lawsuit against Rodax Distributors and Caballero Video for producing a series of porn flicks entitled “Ben & Cherry’s,” featuring such pun-porn-tastic (purntastic?) titles inspired by the line’s most popular flavors as Boston Cream Thigh, Peanut Butter D-Cup, Hairy Garcia, and AmeriCone Cream.

According to the suit, the DVD packages clearly parody the iconic Ben & Jerry’s branding, including blue skies, cows and green grass, and pervert them according to fetish: “Peanut Butter D-Cup for large-breasted women; Chocolate Fudge Babes for African-American women; Hairy Garcia for hirsute women; New York Fat And Chunky for large women; [and] Americone Cream for ‘a delicious mix of hot American gay men.'”

Which, clearly, the pristine and prudent B&J’s company shan’t have anything to do with, lest it tarnish their perfectly PC, perfectly family-friendly image–Schweddy Balls and Karamel Sutra notwithstanding.

Chances are, because the parody is so overt (and because Ben & Jerry’s can), Rodax and Caballero are probably going to lose, requiring them not only to turn over all the profits made from the DVDs but also to have the infringing DVDs and related promotional material destroyed. Which, truth be told, might be a little too bad. After all, the box for Chocolate Fudge Babes promises four discs and 20 hours of footage, which is definitely longer than a normal carton of Ben & Jerry’s would last me.

I’m just saying.
