What makes a drive-thru such an easy target for pranks? People love posting videos of their drive-thru mischief online, and we’ve collected some of the best. These videos just may give you a new appreciation for fast food drive-thru employees.

Pancake rapper Mac Lethal on romantic cheesecake, BBQ and the second best cuisine on Earth

Kansas City rapper Mac Lethal took the internet by storm last week with a one-two punch of a blistering rendition of "Look at Me Now" and a Tumblr called "Texts from Bennett."

While the authenticity of "Bennett" is a matter of some dispute, the 30-year-old Mac Lethal (a.k.a. David Sheldon) brooks no argument over his skills as an MC or as a home chef. As Lethal spits mad rhymes in an uninterrupted take, he cooks up what looks to be flawless pancakes in his home kitchen, suggesting his comfort serving up both beats that are fresh and beets that are tasty.

As longstanding fans of the intersection of hip-hop and cuisine, we asked Mac Lethal to drop some knowledge about his culinary life.

Remember waaaaay back earlier this week when wacky buddy comedians Donald Trump and Sarah Palin walked into a bar sat down for a slice of Real New York Pizza™ in Times Square USA™, then Jon Stewart went on a nearly eight minute rant about their choice of pie venue (Famous Famigilia is an Albanian chain), Trump's slice stacking technique and use of knife and fork on a traditionally hands-on food?

The Donald had something to say in response. We're as shocked (SHOCKED!) as you are.
