Slimmer Rick Ross Isn’t Just Eating Pears, He’s Autographing Them Too

pearr

Rapper Rick Ross has infamous weight-related lyrics like, “If I die tonight, I know I’m coming back nigga. Reincarnated: big black fat nigga” and “This ya last chance, to hop up in a big car wit’ tha fat man, certified hood star.” Well the hefty rapper said he has lost 100 pounds doing “Ross-Fit” and eating pears.

He even gave a shout out to all the pears.

So why wouldn’t he autograph pears for fans? These pears are his source of inspiration and they can inspire others as well.

The pear probably won’t last very long, so the photo itself will be the only memory of the time Rick Ross was signing pears.

China is Eating Pears that Look Like Babies

pears01

Remember when Japan “cornered the market on square fruit” with blocky watermelon? What, did you not know there was a square fruit market? Lame. We’ve been on our novelty fruit game for weeks now.

Well, a few years ago, China decided geometric shapes were old hat. They wanted to upgrade — fruit shapes with actual meaning, substance, y’know? So, logically, farmer Hao Xianzhang came back at Japan with pears that look like babies (called Buddha pears), grown in little snap-on plastic molds. The concept is the same: Tuck the fruit inside when it’s teeny-tiny and wait for it to fill its parameters. Voila! Suddenly, you’re serving up potential sacrilegion for just $7.25 (or 50 yuan)!

Panino With Brie and Pears

Imagine a fresh piece of sesame bread as the casing to a creamy, salty, sweet, smoky brie cheese base with a layer of sweet pears. The contrast in this dish is amazing, particularly with the heavily pressed and grilled piece of bread. If you had your way, how would you further customize this sandwich?!

The name rolls right off the tongue, no? When I saw this picture over at Slashfood, I immediately got wet…in the mouth. Cheese-filled tortellini, pears, Taleggio cheese, mint leaves and lemon zest make up this beautiful concotion. I’ve yet to taste it, but the pictures doing enough damage for me as it is. I’m officially craving this!
