    Keebler, you just have elves. Go home.

    I didn't think I needed a robot in my life that would jump out of boxes and alert me to twitter trends while making customized Oreos. But then I watched this video.

  3. Joerg Sprave’s Oreo Slingshot Gets A Deadly Upgrade

    What's more fun than a gun that shoots Oreos? A gun that shoots Oreos made of steel, of course. It's way better for exploding melons.

    A few months ago, we brought you Joerg Sprave's entry for "best way to separate an Oreo," which -- and this will surprise no one familiar with Sprave's body of work -- took the form of a sort of Oreo shotgun that flung the delicious cookies at targets with great velocity, though to no serious impact. After all, it is just an Oreo. Now, Sprave has resurrected the project and, as is his wont, he's made the thing far more dangerous than it once was, replacing the Oreo ammunition with steel discs capable of blasting a whole through a tower of ballistic gel without slowing down.

    Not to be left out of the unlikely YouTube phenomenon that separating an Oreo has become of late, slingshot mad scientist Joerg Sprave has built a slingshot that takes inspiration from pump action shotguns and fires delicious cookies.  Check out the video below and find yourself suddenly craving cookies for breakfast, though hopefully they won't be served to you via slingshot, as that looks like a really good way to lose an eye.

  5. Today in Geek History: Nabisco Introduces the Oreo

    In the distant future, when alien archaeologists dig through Earth's sediment and uncover traces of our glorious existence, they will inevitably unearth our most iconic product. They shall find the Oreo, the ubiquitous "chocolate sandwich cookies," which was introduced on this day in 1912 by the National Biscuit Company (aka Nabisco). That's right, Oreos are 101 years old. What did you do for its centenarian birthday last year?

    om nom nom

    This short and sweet chocolatey animation was put together by artistic pair Larry Moss, who took the photos, and Kelly Cheatle, credited as "Oreo stylist." Do you think they had any leftover Oreo pieces when they were done? Do you think I could eat them? And now I'm going to go eat lunch. And maybe Oreos. (cvia That's Nerdalicious!.)

  8. Things We Saw Today: Kraft’s Pride Oreo

    Things We Saw Today

    Kraft celebrated Pride Day yesterday by posting this rainbow Oreo on its Facebook page. While the response was mostly positive -- nearly 170,000 "likes" at the time of this writing -- guess what? Some people didn't like it because of the gay. And now they're going to boycott cookies. Well, I guess they'll go eat worms. More cookies for us! Good job, Kraft! (via Business Insider)
