The brilliant people at Oscar Mayer have out-brillianted themselves.

They figured the one sure way to get people out of bed in the morning is with the sound - and smell - of bacon cooking. Because if there is one thing Americans love more than sleep, it's bacon.

Bacon Alarm Clock

They've invented a small device that plugs into the headphone jack of your iPhone and interacts with their free bacon-sound alarm clock app.

When your alarm goes off, you'll not only hear bacon sizzling, you'll also smell it. With your nose! For real!

Unfortunately for us, you cannot buy this amazing device. You have to go to their new Wake Up And Smell The Bacon website between now and April 4, 2014 and sign up for a chance to receive one.

(To research this post I obviously had to apply. I'm sad to report I didn't win one... yet. Although I swear I can already smell bacon cooking after writing the word "bacon" so many times.)

Say hello to Samantha Lee.

In a few moments, you'll wish she was your mother.

Lee is a parent of two kids who believes, as she writes on Instagram, that you should "make food that tell a story." And, boy, does she ever!

Every morning, Lee's daughter wake up to meals such as protein pancakes in the shape of a cat… or a lion… or a reindeer… or Grammy-winning singer Adele.

Lee started doing this in 2008 and she sketches her designs before getting started. This helps "prevent food wastage," Lee writes.

Simply amazing. Follow Samantha Lee on Instagram (@leesamantha) for a lot more of what simply need to marvel at here:

WARNING: You will never look at Cheetos the same way after reading this post.

Simply put, a Reddit user named "stephthehobbit" has posted a photo online of a Cheeto that looks very much like a man pleasuring himself.

That's right: the dog's butthole that resembles Jesus Christ is no longer the most random lookalike on the Internet, people!

Very Dirty Cheeto

This is either real.. or the work of a creator who deserves a spot in the Photoshop Hall of Fame.

Late last year, chef Keith Guehrke appeared on a number of morning talk shows across the midwest.

He described himself as an "unorthodox, self-taught" guru in the kitchen who dropped such nuggets of knowledge on various hosts as:

"There's a statistic that around the holidays, especially between Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's one of the highest suicide rates and I think part of that is the stress of, What are you going to do with these leftovers?"

Seems a bit far-fetched, doesn't it?

That's because chef Keith Guehrke doesn't exist.

It's come out that the man who convinced anchors to try such concoctions as gravy ice cream and/or pumpkin pie smoothies was Nick Prueher, the founder of a site called the Found Footage Festival.

In a new People cover story, Paula Deen says she learned a lot from last year's scandal, and empathizes with others caught up in similar ordeals.

At the same time, she can't help but wonder if she got a raw deal.

Paula Deen People Cover

In 2013, the Food Network dropped the celebrity chef after she admitted in a lawsuit deposition that she used a racial slur a "very long time ago."

The TV star subsequently lost a number of endorsement deals. Though Paula Deen apologized on Today, the backlash made it difficult for her.

In general. To do anything.

"When I woke up each morning, it was like my world was crashing down again," the Georgia native, 67, recalls. "Some people said I never apologized."

Oops! Nestle's bad!

The company recalled  its "Philly Steak and Cheese" and "Croissant Crust Philly Steak and Cheese" Hot Pockets this week after the U.S. Department of Agriculture deemed the products unfit for human consumption.

USDA regulators said the company processed "diseased and unsound animals" without a full federal inspection.

In a press release, Nestle said these Hot Pockets were distributed nationwide and that "a small quantity of meat" from Rancho Feeding Corp. - which recalled 8.7 million pounds of bad beef last week - is to blame.

Kraft macaroni and cheese, Vanilla Ice and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze. If that's not a recipe for a great TV ad, we don't know what is.

If it wasn't obvious, all three of those things have joined forces for a commercial promoting Kraft's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mac and cheese shapes.

The spot finds the rapper stocking shelves (probably not too big a stretch these days) and reviving his "Ninja Rap" from the 1991 sequel to TMNT.

The song, from the ever-so-brief peak of Ice's popularity, features the the familiar refrain, "Go Ninja Go!" and memorably showcased him in a cameo.

Back to the ad, it's as random and awkward as it sounds, but it owns that fact.
