It's just the grill... the grill... the grill you want

Claiming "complete rip-off" of their iconic image and sound, Devo are suing McDonald's over the "New Wave Nigel" included with the American Idol Happy Meal. See the video of Nigel in action. "They didn't ask us anything," Gerard Casale told Australian Associated Press. "Plus, we don't like McDonald's, and we don't like American Idol, so we're doubly offended."

Right About Now / Funk Soul ... Uncle?

Depending on your age, you may have heard him as Shredder or any one of a handful of characters for which he provided voices, but arguably James Avery's most famous role is as Uncle Phil on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." When Uncle Phil goes on a diet, he's orgasmic at the very thought of Thanksgiving dinner. Well, someone saw this clip and thought: "Why not?" Of all the bizarre things to remix, this has to be the one of the oddest — and although the visual is nothing to write home about, the audio must be heard to be believed. (Separating this into its separate components, there are also very odd remixes of Fresh Prince, and very odd remixes of spuds.)

Of course, there are loads of other resources out there, on baking in the microwave, in the oven, on the barbie or by using potatoes in a variety of other ways. And if that doesn't satisfy your curiosity, Google should (2).
