Bryan Cranston: "Never say never" to the return of Walter WhiteBryan Cranston as Walter White in "Breaking Bad" (Credit: AMC/Frank Ockenfels 3)

This morning, some “Breaking Bad” fans woke up to wisps of  false hope. Early this morning, ITV.com pulled quotes from a very recent interview with CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield in which actor Bryan Cranston seems to be hinting that his character Walter White might not be dead and that there could be further episodes to come. “You never saw bags zip up or anything, or anybody say … you know,” goes the quote. Certainly, anything is possible, but this case is most likely that of an actor cherishing the role of a lifetime. Too bad “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan has publicly restated his commitment to the finality of the show so many times:

“Every story has its running time, and it’s just hard in television to know what that running length should amount to, and I feel very happy and satisfied by the fact that we’re wrapping up now.” – EW.com

“Rightly or wrongly, there will be a conclusive ending. Our story from the beginning has been designed to be close-ended. It’s very much designed to have a beginning, middle, and end and then to exist no more.” – Vulture.com

“It took the longest time to come up with that ending, probably the better part of a year. I had a lot of worries along the way that we weren’t going to come up with a proper ending.” – amctv.com

    Sonic's Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog

    Sonic calls this a "gourmet twist" on a classic. I am not so, so fancy, but I know that sprinkling bacon and cheddar cheese onto a tube of pork is not gourmet, even if you have made a bun out of something that is theoretically French.

    Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Bites Pizza

    Pizza Hut basically just glued pigs-in-blankets to the crust of its normal pizza. This actually sounds good, and I blame America for brainwashing me into feeling that.

    Tokyo Dog's Juuni Ban

    A food truck in Seattle called Tokyo Dog created this thing, which is notable for its distinction as the Guinness Book of World Records' most expensive hot dog at $169. It is a smoked cheese bratwurst, covered in butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayo in a brioche bun. Just calm down, Tokyo Dog. Calm down.
