Most weeks the Internet is a bevy of odd and wonderful food finds, and this week is no exception. Here are some of the viral, curious, and downright funny things we've seen popping up our feeds so far.

Costco’s Mesmerizing Pizza Robot

Reader's Digest tipped us off to this insanely-satisfying video of the sauce-dispensing robot Costco uses to whip up its popular by-the-slice pizzas. (Someone please put this on a loop.) For the curious, here's the whole process from start to finish.

Benedict Cumberbatch's Skittles and Coffee Diet

Sure, you might hit the gym a few times a week and think to yourself "I'm pretty much in shape." But then you go see an Avengers movie, where the any one of the Chrises (take your pick) puts your abs to shame. It turns out there's a secret to looking ripped right before you go on camera, and Benedict Cumberbatch revealed the unusual combination he was recommended to look ripped for his shirtless scenes as Doctor Strange.

The New Pizza Rat

Spring has sprung. Everything old is new again. And New York City has a new pizza rat, ringing in the summer like some kind of filthy, hungry Baby New Year.

Matthew Rhys Knows His Wine

The co-host of The Wine Show probably should know a thing or two about the subject of this charming travel series. Sure enough, The Americans actor Matthew Rhys doesn't disappoint when Seth Meyers challenges him to pick the high-end, middle, and cheapo wines out of a trio of unmarked glasses.

A 1930's Garden Party

YouTuber guy jones has an entire account dedicated to uploading old film reels, many with their original sound (you know, as soon as talkies were invented). As warm weather finally settles in, we'll be taking to our own garden parties. But if you'd like to get a taste of the soirees of yore, take a look and (warbly) listen as some high society folks enjoy cocktails at a Palm Beach, Florida-area fete. Oh, the fashions! The monocles! The cigarettes!
