DailyDirt: Food That's Not Quite For Eating...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Parents everywhere are usually scolding their kids for playing with their food, but maybe kids are right to look at food as building materials and decorating items. Here are just a few unconventional uses for edible goods. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    "Condiment wallpaper is a cheap (but perhaps not very long-lasting) way to decorate a room. "

    I had a friend nail a Twinkie to the wall of his bedroom and leave it to show how much preservative was in it.

    I never did like Twinkies anyway.

    Condiment wallpaper is a cheap (but perhaps not very long-lasting) way to decorate a room. And it looks better than filling nail holes in drywall with toothpaste...

    But is it available with snozzberries?

    Re:

    Twinkies just dry out so that mold doesn't grow on them too well. But if you put them in a humid room, twinkies would spoil as fast as any other food.

    I think someone must have done the "moist Twinkies actually do mold" experiment.. I assume Twinkies have no extra special preservatives that allow them to escape mold growth under any conditions.

    I am not a fear factor contestant

    Have you ever smelled a Sun-dried squid body?

    Just reading dried squid body brings back some really bad smell memories from time over seas... it was a local acquired taste and they sold it from carts. I think their favorite spot was under my window on extremely hot days.

    I doubt that I could put my lips to something that smells like decaying fish and drink the putrid contents.
