Maybe it is because we are in Sri Lanka and we have eaten curry with each meal, but Mary Ellen Johnson's photorealistic paintings of sundaes, waffles, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cherry pies and sticky buns are really making our mouth's water.

This is probably only cool in picture form, but the idea of the Minced Wool Sausage, with the yarn coming out of the mincer, is quite clever. This image has been around the web most of this year, and Google is failing to give a name to the creation. Anyone know?

Microwhat? Microcherrytomatoes. Microgumballs. MIcrolipstick. Microsoap. Microglowstick. Micromascara. Microcrayons. You could essentially do this for ever, and probably break your microwave. So instead, we suggest you just enjoy these colorful photographs documenting someone else's microwave experiments.
