From CNBC sports (and sometimes fast-food) reporter Darren Rovell, a big announcement via Twitter:

FIRST LOOK: Taco Bell launching Beefy Nacho Burrito on Wednesday: Nachos inside a burrito (99 cents)

This gratuitous one-upping of its own Doritos Locos Taco earns Taco Bell bragging rights for reaching the height of excess where tacos are concerned. But while the Beefy Nacho Burrito is still no match for Pizza Hut's Crown Crust Carnival Pizza, at least it will be available stateside.

Both of the two food groups ("meats" and "dessert") are represented in The Cupcake Project's "cupcakewurst," which stuffs delicious cake batter into also-delicious sausage casing.

Sorry, chocolate and peanut butter, but you've been made redundant.

A new harbor seal pup was born at the Aquarium of the Pacific late last month, and darn if she didn't take to the water within an hour of birth. Several weeks later, she's in good health, though she has yet to be named.

Meet Shanthi, a 36-year-old Asian elephant at the Smithsonian's National Zoo who composes her own tunes on harmonicas, horns, or whatever else her keepers provide.

According to keepers:

She will use her trunk to cover anything with a hole in it and blow until it makes a sound -- and will often coax the objects to get different types of sounds from it. She taps objects with her trunk and flaps her ears against objects that make noise.

This video is a compilation of some her most recent work.

Old and busted: bacon on a cheeseburger. New hotness: a 100% bacon burger, made of ground, deep-fried bacon and served with a side of fried jalapeños.

You have Peppers and Smoke to thank for this monstrosity.

Just because he's napping, doesn't mean that this month-old endangered clouded leopard cub isn't ticklish. He and his sister were born in early March at a Tacoma zoo, which is seeking public input on the siblings' names.
