The hardest thing about separating the cookie from the cream in your Oreos?

Learning how to build robots and make them function to complete said task.

Also, keeping warm. Hands and cookies do get cold out there in the garage.

Nothing is worth doing if it's not done right, though, and physicist David Neevel decided he just had to make an Oreo Separator machine (or OSM) to do the job.

NOTE: This is a viral ad sponsored by Oreo. But it's still pretty funny, right?

NOTE: This chocolate chip cookie recipe is also good. Change of pace!

In the last half hour, the fast food giant's account on the social network was hijacked, allegedly by "iThug," who instructed people to follow "LiLinternet."

In a surprising and unsettling statement, Burger King admits to horse meat possibly tainting burgers sold in both the U.K. and Ireland recently.

It's just the latest chapter in an ongoing scandal in the two nations involving beef burger patties allegedly containing meat from horses and pigs.

Burger King had originally stressed, in the face of the scandal, that its patties are made with 100 percent beef, a claim that was apparently disproved.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s controversial comments on gay marriage last year did little to dampen the fast food chain's sales. On the contrary:

The company ended 2012 with $4.6 billion in sales, up 14 percent from $4.1 billion a year earlier, and it opened 96 news stores, four more than 2011.

The company does not have to publicize its finances because it is privately owned, but made those figures available to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Supporters of Cathy’s views against gay marriage and his right to express them hailed the numbers as a victory in light of efforts to boycott the chain.

If you ever wondered what Katy Perry's face would look like on Paula Deen ... you have really bizarre and specific thoughts. But you're also in luck!

The Internet decided to create this imagery. You're welcome:

It's hard to tell where Katy Perry ends and Paula Deen begins. Originally created last year, before any Paula Deen weight loss, the pic is making the rounds again this week.

We just have two questions:

  • Why didn't Katy rock that hairstyle in her inauguration performance?
  • Is this what John Mayer fantasizes about if he's really hungry?
