The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let FWx do it for you. Here, five of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
Scotch Egg Burger: Hamburger buns as we know them are now obsolete, because you can use a scotch egg instead. The folks behind Yeah! Burger are serving up scotch egg burgers at two London spots until August 22 in honor of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. There’s the Scotch Ness Monster (beef, pickled onions and cheddar on a sage scotch egg), the Dragon (lamb, caramelized leeks, and beurre blanc on a haggis and kedgeree scotch egg) and the Glaswegian (buttermilk-fried tofu, kimchi, wasabi, and nori mayonnaise on a mushroom and quinoa scotch egg).

Woman Cooks with Olive Oil Shower Gel: A woman recently admitted on Facebook to cooking with Yves Rocher olive oil shower gel after mistaking it for olive oil. It took Melony Jackson several months, two ruined saucepans and many disgusting meals before realizing her mistake. “Chef of the week award is not mine this week,” she wrote. That’s putting it very, very lightly. [Daily Mail]
