Of Course There’s Blue Breaking Bad-Themed Vodka

Safer than the blue meth in the show

Blue Ice Vodka has released a limited-edition Breaking Bad-themed line called “Heisenberg,”People.com reports. It’s inspired by “Blue Sky,” the street name for the blue meth that Walter White (alias: “Heisenberg”) manufactured with his partner in crime and former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul).

The liquor comes in commemorative bottles with famous lines from the series: “Say My Name,” “The One Who Knocks” and “Tread Lightly.”

It should be the perfect nightcap for fans re-watching old episodes — as long as they do not binge-drink while they binge-watch.

Now this is a story all about how … a blues cover of the Fresh Prince theme started to go viral.

Performed by Canadian guitarist and songwriter Steve Onotera and Jeff Gagne, the spoof of the theme song for the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air turns rap by the show’s star Will Smith into a medley played on a tambourine and harmonica.

As Onotera joked on Reddit, “imagine Carlton dancing to it.” So now we wait for someone to mash up footage of the goody-two-shoes.

Watch Jon Stewart Compare Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon to Saddam Hussein

The Scottish politician was a guest on The Daily Show

On The Daily Show Monday night, host Jon Stewart started off his interview with the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon by explaining that her political party, the Scottish National Party, had won an “unprecedented” 56 of 59 seats in the general election.

The politician, whom the show erroneously billed as a “comedian” prior to the appearance, quipped that she had ordered an inquiry into why she didn’t win the other three — to which Stewart shot back, “What, you think you’re Saddam Hussein? You get 99%?”

In response to his joke, Sturgeon amiably said, “I always think you should aim for more.”

The announcement came on National Donut Day

Taco Bell announced Friday that it is adding Cap’n Crunch Delights, warm donut holes covered in Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries cereal and filled with “milk icing,” to its national menu, starting July 2.

The chain started testing the item in select locations in February, selling packs of two for $1.00, four for $1.69 or 12 for $4.49.

While Taco Bell recently announced it would rid its menu of artificial ingredients—artificial colors, flavors and high-fructose corn syrup—by year’s end, the pledge does not apply to branded items like the Cap’n Crunch donut holes or Doritos Locos Tacos, a spokesperson told the Associated Press.

The announcement had good timing: It came on National Donut Day.
