Try One of These Mario 1-Up Ring Pops to Put a Little Spring in Your Step


With the week winding down, you’re probably feeling a little restless and moody right now. Well, they say the best way to find fulfillment is to devote yourself to helping other people, so why not whip up a batch of these Mario 1-Up Ring Pops and give yourself and everyone else in the office something to smile about?

All you need is some “White Mystery” Airheads, corn syrup, cherry and lime Kool-Aid and some recycled plastic rings. Thanks to this recipe by instructables user Sherrybaby81485, you’ll be hopping around on mushrooms (and if I might add, one hell of a sugar high) in no time.

Falcon Punch Your Way to Breakfast with Nintendo Pancakes

Nintendo Pancakes

The world’s most awesome pancake-making dad is back again, and this time he’s going old school. Nathan Shields of Saipancakes has already come up with HobbitStar Trek and animal turd pancakes, among others. So what could possibly be next? Nintendo flapjacks, y’all!

The batter master creates skillet art that’s not only perfect breakfast entertainment, but they’re also totally spot-on. Mario has his starchy ‘stache, the big DK looks fierce and Yoshi looks adorable, as usual. Perfection.

Since Shields has so much starchy talent, there’s no telling what he could crank out next. Here’s to hoping it’s the cast of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” in batter form, but what do you think it’ll be?

Take a Look at Batman, Mario and Pikachu Made Entirely of Recycled Aluminum Cans

Aluminum cans are the most recycled beverage container in the world with a whopping 105,784 cans being recycled every minute, nationwide. Japanese artist Makaon is taking recycling to the next level with his series of astounding sculptures fashioned after fictional characters like Batman, Yoshi and Mario.

I can’t imagine the level of intricate folding needed to take place to achieve such exemplary recreations, but alas, folds were made and pieces of art emerged. Oh the finger blood (or glove tearing) that must have occured for these figures to become reality. Makaon’s entire collection is viewable via his website — here are some of our favorites:
