It's that time of year again, you're back at school, back at work, and ready to gorge yourself to stay warm as the temperatures turn colder. So we've got some candies we dare you to try, and some fail-safe chicken nuggets to wash them all down with!

Brunch-Flavored Candy Corn is Here

So Brachs has decided to give us our first 'dare candy' of the season in their new Brunch-Flavored Candy Corn.

The bag contains a mix of three flavors, each more nauseating in a candy corn than the one before, and emitting an odor "very reminiscent of a Yankee Maple Pancake candle":

- French Toast & Maple Syrup
- Waffles & Strawberry
- Chocolate Chip & Pancakes

The good folks over at Thrillist just taste-tested them to give you an idea of what to expect:

We recommend you give 'em a try yourself and let us know what you think. Pick 'em up here.

A Definitive Ranking of the Best Fast Food Chicken Nuggets

Oh nuggets, in your little nuggety goodness and bite-sized chompiness, how I love thee!! So when I saw this ranking of the best fast food nuggets, I knew I had to memorize it.

Between Burger King, McDonald's, and Wendy's, who would win?

In one corner is McDonald's, the original creator of the McNugget, a name whose meaning flows deeply into the American psyche and pop culture with toys and phrases based around the juicy meat treat:

In another corner is the winner of 'freshest tasting burger' in my household, Wendy's, and traditionally known for its chicken, Burger King... who would reign supreme?

So the Burger King rankings were surprising, as they have the best chicken sandwich of the bunch (IMO), with a consistent meatiness that the others couldn't always deliver.

Okay, so it's wasn't Burger King... that's weird.

Could it be the Wal-Mart of restaurants, McDonald's? Or my homeboy of freshness, Wendy's?

With an overall winning score of 90.5 (out of 120 possible points), I leave it up to you to guess in the comments section below (before checking) as to who won the Nugget off: Wendy's or McDonald's????

Find out the actual winner here, and run your own taste test and let us know which YOU prefer, in the comments section.

We know why he has 'no comment' now...

More than 11,000 people were marching against gay marriage in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico on Sept. 10th. Queue our hero, a 12-year-old Mexican boy, who stood against the crowd as a solitary voice of reason against the tide of oppression.

Afterwards, the child said, "I have an uncle who is gay and I hate the hatred."

Same-sex marriage has been legalized in Mexico City and 9 of the nation's 31 states. There are challenges currently underway in the 22 other states.

See the people marching here.

His moment was reminiscent of the Tiananmen Square "Tank Man" in Beijing in 1989:

And also this:

Some People Didn't Buy His Comeback AT ALL...

Wanting him to get more punishment...

Tying it into Black Lives Matter

...and reminding Lochte to genuinely apologize for LYING, which he still hasn't done yet:

Frankly, after all of this, I'm just left wondering where I can buy one of these t-shirts.... anyone?

Amazon has plans to open 100 retail stores across the U.S., adding to it's current tally of 16 pop-up stores in malls across the Country.

According to Business Insider, "The miniature retail storefronts are a separate effort from the physical bookstore that Amazon opened in Seattle last year and are primarily designed to showcase and sell the company's hardware devices, particularly its Echo home speakers."

They sell the pop-ups as places where you can "Ask an Expert," test drive the products, and buy them on the spot without having to pay for Amazon shipping. Right now they only sell mostly Amazon-specific products like covers for Kindles, headphones, or the Amazon Echo, but brick-and-mortar stores are potential future options if the model proves to be a revenue-driver.

We recommend Amazon sell what it delivers best: disappointment. To that end, they could stock the following products, straight from their warehouses:

Haribo Sugar-Free Gummy Bears

More reviews here.

Nicolas Cage Pillow Case

Get it here.

This Threatening Baby Onesie

Buy it here.

...and anything from this slightly-NSFW list.

In a move as bold as one Banksy would make himself, his former agent (and current enemy), Steve Lazarides, is holding a Banksy exhibition in a car park in Melbourne, Australia from Oct. 7 through Jan. 22, showcasing over 80 works from different private collections.

BANKSY. MELBOURNE. From 7th October - #Banksy #ArtOfBanksy #banksymelbourne

A video posted by The Art Of Banksy Melbourne (@banksymelbourne) on

Lazarides likes to do sh*t for shock value even though that's a juvenile way to do art. He and Banksy haven't spoken in ages, including at a recent Massive Attack concert in March when they kept their distance from each other.

Art by Banksy

They are mainly hyping the exhibit as rare, in that the works are privately-owned so it's unlikely to know when they will be shown publicly again, but the bottom line is that Banksy isn't going to benefit from this exhibit, as he explicitly states on his own website (pictured below) that he has no connection with Lazarides.

So if you want to support the artist then you should try to fund public art all over the place, so that people like Banksy can make a decent living.

The pair won the Wimbledon Wheelchair Men's Doubles earlier this summer: they are used to kicking ass and taking names.
