“Weird Al” has gone full throttle with the release of his latest — and possibly final — album “Mandatory Fun.” He has released four of eight videos he plans to show in conjunction with the album, including “Blurred Lines” parody “Word Crimes,” a riff on Lorde’s “Royals” titled “Foils,” a humorous take on Azalea Bank’s “Fancy” and his homage to Pharrell’s hit “Happy.”

    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.

    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.
