Move over, Roxie. The name on everybody’s lips today is Strawberry Pop-Tart. A late entrant in some of the most entertaining television you’ll watch all year originated from last night’s Pop-Tarts Bowl. North Carolina State and Kansas State’s shootout took a backseat to the unhinged edible mascot from the very moment they ascended from a comically large toaster. Taking notes from a pantheon of deranged Philly sports mascots, the mascot ran amuck and harassed everyone from referees to stadium security. All of this free-wheeling fun led to the puffed pastry’s tragic demise as they later were eaten by the handful following Kansas State’s 28-19 victory over North Carolina State. While we’ll miss the crazed toaster pastry dearly, their short life reminded us of the fun to be had during College Bowl Season as a celebration of the hard work athletes put in all season.
In other deranged news, Ripley and the Xenomorph are reuniting in the most unlikely of places: a children’s book. Familiar faces from Ridley Scott’s horrifying and iconic intergalactic tale Alien will be making appearances in A Is for Alien: An ABC Book. The Little Golden Book title, which is being published by Penguin Random House, will bring young readers aboard the Nostromo and teach them the alphabet with characters and assets from the 1979 film. Here’s hoping that B stands for “bursting out of somebody’s chest.”
And, of course, let’s not forget our favorite place to find all things unhinged: our amateur comedians on the timeline. Today’s funniest tweets include those about a horny internet browser, a girl who is the catch of the day and some more college football highlights.
