Bryan Cranston Pickle
Since Breaking Bad ended, it seems Bryan Cranston has teamed up with a leading British food brand to create a unique and delicious sandwich pickle. According to Firebox.com, the pickle spread has an “iconic sky blue colour and Heisenberg hat screw-top lid it’s destined to become an instant household favourite. Does it contain chunks of 99.1% pure crystal methamphetamine? Quite probably. Though the recipe is a closely guarded secret… It possesses a distinctive and curiously addictive flavour, so if you’ve not tried this potent pickle before, maybe your best course is to spread lightly.”
The website also lists that the product is “suitable for vegetarians. Not advisable for recovering meth addicts.”
The automaker is “introducing” a G-Force simulator called Force Injection Booster. The device simulates the effects of g-force inducing speed, even when driving around town.
