The durian fruit, known in southeast Asia as the "king of fruits," has a spiky exterior, soft fleshy insides, and it's flavor is described as "...a strange combination of savory, sweet, and creamy all at once... with subtle hints of chives mixed with powdered sugar. It's supposed to taste like diced garlic and caramel poured into whipped cream."



So the new condom with durian flavor is DEFINITELY a gamble, but maybe one that's worth it? At the very least, it's a lot of fun to watch the embarrassed Malaysians from 1:20 in the video above.

So it's a chance to take:

"Some people don't like the smell of durians, so during sex they might get turned off."



But if you're game, let us know in the comments if they worked well for you (or not).

A guy walked into a Subway restaurant and saw a worker using a bug zapper over the food bins to kill some gnats, so he freaked out, took a video, and alerted the health department.

The 55-second video of the incident was made by Justin Clemons at the Subway restaurant, on the way back from golfing with his young son. Clemons is also advertising the licensing of the video on Facebook.

Subway responded after Clemons got over 14,000 views on his Facebook page, which he really enjoyed:




Subway corporate gave the news their official statement for the news too:



They threw out all the food in the store and admonished the clerk, who, as far as we know now, didn't lose his job from all the bug killing.


The jury is out on whether the food bins were closed when the zapping occurred, but the news says the gnats came from spoiled fruit or a drain in the floor, both of which seems kind of gross.

Oh Internet, how we loathe you sometimes.

Millions were disappointed after gullibly falling for an fake story indicating that "Harambe McHarambeface" won the naming contest for a baby gorilla at a Chinese zoo.

It all started when the crap-tacular Daily Mirror--who never checks the legitimacy of their sources--decided to pick up the story. The "source" was the fictitional "Boston Leader" news website, and the internet ran with it from there:






The truth quickly came out and hearts were broken everywhere...

You had me at "cookie fries."

If you've been to the Texas State Fair, you've probably eaten some of Isaac Rousso's famous award-winning treats like his funnel cake fries, deep-fried hash browns stuffed with bacon and cheddar cheese, smoky bacon margarita, deep fried Cuban rolls, fried Pop Tarts, and, yes, cookie fries.



Rousso has just won the right to open a restaurant in Plano Wal-Mart next week where he can serve these deep-fried artery-cloggers to Texas' poorest shoppers 365-days a year.

According to Eater Dallas, "The chain is also in talks about a "nation-wide" expansion, which would bring State Fair Treats to Walmart stores across the country depending on how things go in Texas."



Well, as for the cookie fries, they are described as deep-fried cookies that come in flavors like chocolate chip or sprinkles, and are shaped like a French fry and served with strawberry or milk chocolate sauce.

Okay, i'm game for that "nationwide [pants] expansion."



Wal-Mart road trip time.

He is over 100 years old, weighs about 175 pounds, is nearly 35 inches long, five feet tall, and the ladies love him. His name is Diego. Diego the Chelonoidis hoodensis Galapagos giant tortoise.



According to Washington Tapia, a tortoise preservation specialist at Galapagos National Park, Diego "has fathered an estimated 800 offspring, almost single-handedly rebuilding the species' population--and saving it from extinction--on their native island, Espanola, the southernmost in the Galapagos Archipelago."

"Around 50 years ago, there were only two males and 12 females of Diego's species alive on Espanola, and they were too spread out to reproduce."

Six years ago, they did a genetic study and discovered that Diego was the father of nearly 40 percent of the offspring released into the wild on Espanola, thereby doing more parenting than any other turtle to repopulate the species.





"He's a very sexually active male reproducer. He's contributed enormously to repopulating the island," said Tapia.




"Rawr, damn straight," replied Diego.

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:

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.
