Things We Saw Today: Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream


You won’t be able to partake in this social network-themed treat unless you’re on Croatia’s Murter Island, where the not-sanctioned-by-Facebook confection can be found exclusively in brothers Admir and Ibi Adili‘s ice cream shop. It’s pretty much just plain ice cream with a blue syrup that tastes like “chewing gum and candy” drizzled on top. So it’s geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn’t have much to it. Fitting. (That’s Nerdalicious)

Wonder Woman, meet Wonder Woman. (seen at Dragon*Con, via Fashionably Geek)

  • Digital Spy reports that Cynthia Nixon has joined season two of Hannibal. She’ll be playing Kade Prurnell, an FBI Oversight employee assigned to investigate Jack’s (Lawrence Fishburne) role in what went down with Will (Hugh Dancy) in season one. Kade, listen to me very carefully: Do not eat any food that Dr. Lecter gives you.
  • The 2013 Harvey Awards were presented this weekend, and Saga won in a big way, snagging awards for Best Writer, Artist, Colorist, New Series, Continuing or Limited Series, and Single Issue or Story. Other awards went to Marvel’s Hawkeye series (Best Cover Artist for David Aja), Jaime Hernandez of Love and Rockets (Best Cartoonist), and Ryan North‘s Adventure Time series (Best Original Graphic Publication for Younger Readers, Special Award for Humor in Comics). (Digital Spy)
  • Via MTV, Marvel has released a synopsis for the first episode of Agents of SHIELD:

In the premiere episode, “Pilot,” it’s just after the battle of New York, and now that the existence of super heroes and aliens has become public knowledge, the world is trying to come to grips with this new reality. Agent Phil Coulson is back in action and has his eye on a mysterious group called the Rising Tide. In order to track this unseen, unknown enemy, he has assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division). The group’s first assignment together as a team finds them trying to track down an ordinary man who has gained extraordinary powers. Powers that could have devastating consequences.

Soooo… pretty much what we already knew. 15 days and counting ’til the September 24th premiere!

    Probably the same flavour that’s been sold as “Smurf” ice cream when I was a kid…

    It is. Exactly the same. I’m from Croatia and I tried it. Nothing special, but it’s quite popular.

    Finally, Black Widow is getting her own series.

    I don’t know if I’ll even read it, but still, it bugged me that of all the heroes in the Avengers movie she was the only one without a solo title. Missed opportunity or what?

    Wonder Woman at a con? Amazing! Call me if somebody dresses up as Condorman!

    Awesome. I wondered what “stalking your ex’s page” and “drunk duck face photos” tasted like…

    Grain alcohol and Miller Lite, respectively.

    FB ice cream tastes like frustration and rage.

    I love love love those Wonder Woman cosplays. I don’t know much about Wonder Woman but are those outfits canon in the comics or is it something the cosplayers themselves designed? Either way, they’re pretty darn awesome and they look adorable. ♥
