The Best Picture I Saw This Week (6-19 to 6-25-2015)
written by Sam Greenspan

Welcome to another edition of the Best Picture I Saw This Week...

Second runner up: The world's most bourgeois Twinkie



Remember when county fairs first served deep-fried Twinkies and everyone thought that was indulgent? They've pushed the envelope far beyond that for several years now and, concurrently, raised our expectations for over-the-top fair food. I think this new Caviar Twinkie at the Orange County Fair certainly qualifies. $125; no deep frying required.

First runner up: Sundown snacking



We're about a week into Ramadan. And while you can respect Pringles' attempts at cornering the, "You haven't eaten all day, I bet you're hungry" market -- the "Smokey Bacon Flavor" shows a real lack of understanding of their audience.

The winner!



A 31-year-old guy in Norway has spent the past six years painstakingly and sublimatingly crocheting the entire first world of Super Mario Bros. 3. Assuming he keeps up the pace, he'll have all eight worlds done by the time he's 73 -- which, fittingly, is the age when he's really going to want to start taking up crocheting.
