Passweird - Passwords too gross to steal.
This website will create for you a password that is not only secure*, but is also so utterly repulsive that not even the most hardened criminal, identity thief, NSA agent, or jealous boyfriend would ever want to use it. *ish, but probably not. Don't use these for real.

The Cinco Family/Corporation is a fictional corporation which spans the television and internet works of comedian Bob Odenkirk
. From 2007 to 2010, the comedy television program Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!
, served as an outlet for Cinco Products skits. The commercials and infomercials use green screen and special effects with the intent of mimicking the standard format of infomercials from the late 1980s and early 1990s, often lampooning technology from the same era (such as the Cinco MIDI Organizer). Generally, the goods and services sold by Cinco companies are a bizarre assortment of useless, pointless and/or physically harmful products, at least three of which require the removal of all of the user's teeth.

Worms in your fresh fish?
We've heard about them in sushi for years, but stories are on the rise of creeping condiments from supermarkets. The FAO says they're actually not uncommon
though "worms are unsightly and consumers naturally object to their presence". One theory
holds that they're on the rise due to cost-driven onshore processing. Icked-out consumers have been posting videos on YouTube 1
, while others have sought solace
in discussion forums
. But the good news? Cook thoroughly
and you'll be safe. Me, I'll be sticking to enchiladas.

"1 Crunchwrap Supreme + 1 OCTO-MAC
+ 20 or so Taco Bell Fire Sauce packets + Taco Bell Cheese Sauce + Bacos + Garfield's Macaroni & Beef + A splash of Jim Beam + Approximately 2 cups of salsa = GODKILLER
, for why else would it exist but to kill God?" [more inside]

And by "wild" they mean "different." I'll say:
I like to take bologna and put it on a hot dog bun with string cheese and orange marmalade in the middle of the bologna, then micro wave it to melt the cheese a little--about 1 minute. Yum! I also like grape jelly and roast beef sandwhiches. I like grilled cheese sanwhiches, with strawberry jam and ham as the filling. Hamburgers on a plate, no bun, smothered in syrup or honey is good too.

All your favorite real grocery items are here: Sweet pickled watermelon rind
, Gerber Graduates Meat Sticks
, Pork Brains
, and my personal favorite, Instant Natural Jellyfish
. Just remember, "there’s nothing wrong with eating food that other people find absurd. In fact, there’s a big difference between absurd food, and bad food. Absurd food is a good thing. Bad food is, well..., not good."

Warning: this is possibly the worst story ever told.
Ever wanted to know what it's like to have a beef tapeworm
? (Fun fact: they're the kind that fills your whole intestinal tract!) A storyteller on The Fray
helpfully clues us in to the experience of living with, and eventually destroying, his li'l parasite buddy. Don't read it if you don't want to wish for death at the end. (Blessedly, there are no photographs, though there are some toon-like illustrations.) Via Boing Boing

Chocolate, Blue 'Funky Fries' pulled from shelves
fries with the flavors of chocolate, cinnamon and blue-colored variety have been pulled by Heinz due to poor sales and overall revulsion by consumers around the nation (especially here at MeFi
). Can you think of other such horrific failed foods that were disgusting from the start?

This stuff is nasty!
Have anyone out there ever tried Marmite? It looks like something you might pack your wheel bearings in. The taste isn't much better. Maybe it's just a British thing?
