If you’re looking for a good gross-out prank or perhaps something to spice up your annual performance of How to Eat Fried Worms, check out these awesome edible worms that were made by Pennsylvania-based cpacker1 using little more than bendy straws and raspberry Jell-O.
Sure to be tastier than real worms, though we’ll admit they might be less nutritious, this wriggly treat looks perfect for Halloween (which is right around the corner), April Fool’s Day, or just a fun way to cheer up a friend or family member who recently had their tonsils removed.
cpacker1 created an easy Instructables tutorial for How to make a bowl of Jell-O Worms using bendy drinking straws and raspberry-flavored Jell-O. “The results are great but be sure to read the tutorial’s comments section for tips on how to make the process go more smoothly.”

Behold a batch of Meat Shot Glasses created by the meat wizards at ManBQue as edible drinking vessels for their homemade bacon vodka. The two combined creations sound like a perfect savoury refreshment for the chilly weather that’s headed our way as summer finally gives way to autumn, not to mention a great excuse to delay stowing away your grill. That is, assuming you enjoy meat as much as we do.
Here are the ingredients:
1lb ground beef, 80/20, ask the butcher for double ground (should yield 8 shot glasses)
2 jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and minced
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp celery salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp arbol chile powder
You’ll also need some stainless steel shot glasses. Make sure they don’t have any logos or designs painted on them, as you’ll be cooking them and pretty much no one benefits from the release of toxic fumes.
Now that you’ve gathered all of your ingredients, here are the directions:
1. Blend all of your ingredients together in a medium bowl
2. Make 8-1/8lb balls of your mixture (heh, heh, we said ‘balls’)
3. Gently pack the meat around the shot glass, make sure it gets around the whole glass and has no punctures or breaks
4. Place on the grill, open side down
5. Evenly sear the meat around the glass then place them on the top rack of the grill for about 7 minutes
While ManBQue suggests filling the Meat Shot Glasses with bacon vodka, James Plafke from Geekosystem has another great idea: use them to serve Bloody Marys “with a cheese stick instead of the traditional celery.” Yum?
“British sculptor Antony Gormley is well-known for his life-size sculptures that creatively mimic the human body, but the figurative clay mounds from his series titled Field, though not as accurate in depicting mankind’s form, holds deeper value for the artist. Gormley says of this project, “I wanted to work with people and to make a work about our collective future and our responsibility for it. I wanted the art to look back at us, its makers (and later viewers), as if we were responsible - responsible for the world that it [FIELD] and we were in.”
This passion project that has spanned across almost 15 years on five separate occasions in different parts of the world displays an army of 200,000 clay figures that completely occupy the space they are exhibited in. Gormley works with the native people of the installation’s exhibiting space to mold the 125 tons of clay. The artist animatedly describes the figures as being ‘energised by fire, sensitised by touch and made conscious by being given eyes.’”
