Would you drink it or chicken out?

Prairie Farms is releasing PEEPS-flavored milk for spring. And no, this news is not some horror scene from the PEEPS movie that may be in the works.

Starting the first week of March, PEEPS milk will be available in three flavors: “Marshmallow Milk,” reduced-fat “Chocolate Marshmallow Milk” and reduced-fat “Easter Egg Nog”— all of which sound more flavorful than regular PEEPs, which generally tend to taste like plain sugar.

Up to you whether you want to dunk PEEPs into the milk or use it as pools of water in any of the upcoming PEEPs diorama contests.

Great Scott: Here’s Back to the Future‘s Best Scene Remade With LEGOs

Is it worthy of a LEGO Oscar?

In honor of the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future this summer, London-based LEGO animator Macro Lego Universe has recreated the beloved science fiction film in six minutes. Pay close attention to the movie’s famous clock tower scene. Filmed at BRICK 2014, a convention for fans of the inter-locking bricks, it was animated and photographed by Vicki Smith and Daniel Jamieson, and the set was built by Elspeth De Montes.

Woman Sues Restaurant For $100,000 Because the Staff Wasn’t Nice to Her

They also refused to give her takeout

A woman who dined solo at a Portland, Ore., eatery on Valentine’s Day is now suing the restaurant because she claims she received rude service.

Local small business owner Kathleen Hampton is seeking $100,000 from Enzo’s Caffe Italiano. Hampton originally made a dinner reservation for herself and her husband, but, as she notes in the lawsuit, he “was still full from lunch” so he decided to bail, leaving Hampton to fly solo.

Once she was seated, Hampton said a waitress told her she had to give up her table and leave before she’d ordered any food. To be reasonable, Hampton said she’d just get her food to go, but the restaurant refused.

“That was the final straw,” she writes in the lawsuit. “I’ve never heard of a food place not having to go.”

Restaurant owner Enzo Lanzadoro, however, told the Oregonian that he remembers the night differently.

“She made reservation for two and when she got there, said ‘oh just by myself,'” Lanzadoro said. “We offered for her to sit at the bar with other single diners since Valentine’s Day is very busy and all we know is she got up [from the table] and left without paying after she drank two glasses of wine.”

In addition to the $100,000, Hampton, who’s representing herself, wants a public apology both in person and in local newspapers.

Watch a News Anchor Stare Her Colleague Down After He Calls Her the Hamburglar

"It's your birthday, I'll let it pass. No I wont, I'll get you later."

When a TV news host in St. Louis noticed his colleague was wearing a black and white striped shirt similar to the outfit worn by the Hamburglar, he decided to make that observation known.

The host, Tim Ezell, makes the reference pretty seamlessly and clearly catches the anchor, April Simpson, by surprise. She gives him what can only be described as a death glare, and then says, “It’s your birthday, I’ll let it pass.” Then she adds, “No I won’t, I’ll get you later.”

The clip was actually shot a year and a half ago, but the TV station, FOX 2, just shared it on YouTube for the first time, Mashable points out. It’s gained popularity thanks to comedian Kevin Hart, who shared it on Facebook Tuesday.

Alas, we never did find out if Simpson gets Ezell back for the diss.

Adam Levine Handled a Fan’s Panic Attack in the Sweetest Way Possible

Christopher Warner is obsessed with the Maroon 5 singer

Christopher Warner, a 10 year old from Maryland with Down syndrome, loves Maroon 5’s Adam Levine so much, he made the singer a fan video:

When Hot 99.5’s Kane Show saw the video, the station arranged for Werner, his mom and his teachers, to go backstage after the band’s show at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C., The Today Show reports.

But when the youngster met his hero, he had a panic attack and had to lay down on the floor. The pop star did the same and suggested everyone follow suit. So they just hung out there, took pictures and had a grand old time.

Ben & Jerry’s Founders Think Pot Ice Cream ‘Makes Sense’

Just think of the pun possibilities

Ice cream icons Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield (a.k.a. the dairy deities behind Ben & Jerry’s) are in favor of a new flavor idea.

In a recent interview with Huffington Post Live, Cohen and Greenfield were asked about the possibility of making a pot-infused ice cream. “Makes sense to me,” Cohen said. “Combine your pleasures.”

“Ben and I have had previous experiences with substances,” added Greenfield, whose namesake company makes flavors like Satisfy My Bowl and Dave Matthews Band Magic Brownies Encore Edition. “I think legalizing marijuana is a wonderful thing, rather than putting people in jail for not hurting anyone.”

Does that mean cannabis-flavored edible marijuana ice cream will be on the shelf next to Half-Baked and Cherry Garcia in Washington, Alaska and Colorado, where weed is now legal? Potentially, but it’s not up to Cohen and Greenfield, who sold the company to Unilever in 2001. As Greenfield describes, “It’s not my decision. If it were my decision, I’d be doing it, but fortunately we have wiser heads at the company that figure those things out.”

Colorado sold nearly five million edibles last year.

This Artist Uses His iPhone to Recreate Iconic Movie Scenes

A totally surreal use of technology

French artist Francois Dourlen has proven that iPhones are good for so much more than Snapchat and Candy Crush. He uses his device to reimagine famous movie scenes with clever visual trickery, resulting in a series of stunning photographs.

Dourlen pulls up stills from films ranging from Rambo to Up on his screen, and then carefully overlaps them with everyday real-life scenes to create entirely new, surreal images.

Everything from olive oil foot massages to adding whiskey to your morning coffee

Misao Okawa, the world’s oldest person, celebrated her birthday with family at her Osaka, Japan, nursing home on Wednesday, a day before she officially turns 117. In the past, when asked to share her secret to long life, she has cited sushi and getting a good night’s sleep. This year, she simply said, “I wonder about that too.”

Here are other secrets to longevity that centenarians and super-centenarians have revealed in recent years:

“Believe in the Lord,” the third-oldest American Susannah Mushatt Jones, 115, shared with TIME during a visit to her Brooklyn home.

Pork, the second-oldest American, Jeralean Talley, 115, told TIME in 2013. Her signature dish is hog’s head cheese (pigs’ ears and feet in a jelly stock)

“Kindness,” the oldest American, Gertrude Weaver of Camden, Arkansas, revealed to TIME shortly after her 116th birthday.

• At 111 years old, Bernando LaPallo of Mesa, Ariz., massages his feet in olive oil.

• A Scottish 109-year-old Jessie Gallan advised “staying away from men” and eating porridge.

• Duranord Veillard, a 108-year-old from Spring Valley, N.Y., who has been married to his wife Jeanne for 82 years, gets up at 5:00 a.m. every day and does five to seven push-ups.

• Alexander Imich of New York City, formerly known as the world’s oldest man, said he didn’t drink alcohol.

• On his 115th birthday, the former oldest man in Japan, Jiroemon Kimura, attributed his longevity to sun-bathing.

Eating raw eggs, said 115-year-old Emma Morano-Martinuzzi of Verbania, Italy.

• Alfred Date, a 109-year-old Australian man, said knitting, is “a good way of getting along in life.” Recently, he knitted sweaters for injured penguins.

• During her 107th birthday celebrations, Downing Jett Kay of Baltimore said drinking lots of coffee was a big part of her long life.

• Richard Overton, who has been called the oldest living veteran, adds whiskey to his morning coffee and smokes up to 12 cigars a day, he claimed around his 107th birthday.

• When Adelina Domingues of San Diego was 114, she told U-T San Diego, “I’ve never been to a beauty shop and I’ve never been vain.

Here’s What It Would Look Like If Wes Anderson Directed an X-Men Movie

Mutants meet twee.

Have you ever found yourself wondering what it would look like if the X-Men trained at Royal Tenenbaum’s Harlem mansion? Or if Max Fischer was expelled from Rushmore and enrolled in Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters? Have you secretly hoped that Wes Anderson would take the reins of The Avengers franchise? Then this video is for you.

Patrick Willems just debuted a new fan film on his YouTube channel, and it attempts to answer the burning question on every Grand Budapest Hotel fan’s lips: What would it be like if Wes Anderson directed an X-Men movie? (That’s the question, because we already know what it would look like if Anderson directed Star Wars.)

The result is a very symmetrical, red-and-gold-filled film that plunks the Marvel mutants into a world of privileged prodigies with poor social skills. In short, it’s pretty great, if a little rough around the edges.
