What you don’t know can hurt you, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you do want to know. Not everything, at least. For some of us an ‘A’ in the window is good enough. For others… well, there’s an app for that.

Because Hot Dog News Is Important: The Royal Dog

PINK'S WELCOMES THE ROYAL COUPLE TO L.A. by offering The Royal Dog on the menu and now has a banner across the front of Pink's saying

I didn’t know the Royal Couple was honeymooning in Hollywood, but I do know a good hot dog when I see one. Maybe Will and Kate (whoever they are) can take one back to the other side of the pond to give the food of their country a much needed, uh, hot beef injection of flavor.

This is a press release:

Pink’s Hot Dogs Welcomes Will & Kate to L.A. with a Banner and a New Hot Dog

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pink’s Hot Dogs welcomes the Royal Couple, Will & Kate, to Los Angeles with a banner displayed across the front of the stand which reads: “PINK’S WELCOMES WILL & KATE TO L.A.!!!”

A new hot dog was created in honor of the royal visit – THE ROYAL DOG, 2 Hot Dogs in 1 bun with “royal toppings” which include: mustard, cheese, onions, pickle relish, a “spot” of Pink’s famous chili and 2 slices of bacon, “a mere trifle at ₤3.73” or $6.00. Come one, come all, thou shall dine like Royalty!!

Eatensil Is A Utensil For Everything

Just Eat everything utensil, the Eatensil.

If you’re in London (and surrounding areas) you can use the internet to eat. Well, to order to eat, that is. Of course they do everything backwards (and on the wrong side of the road) back there, so instead of calling it ‘take-out’ they say ‘takeaway’. And Just-Eat is the internet-y way of ordering.

But what to do when the fish and chips arrive without the little wooden fork? Well, in a clever marketing bit, Just-Eat has created the Swiss Army knife of utensils, the Eatensil. Packed into the monstrosity is a pizza cutter, a wooden chip fork, chopsticks, a knife, a fork and a spoon. And for good measure a bottle opener is housed directly in the body. It doesn’t look like the Eatensil is in actual production, but I’m guessing that even over there, the pizza does arrive pre-sliced.
