  • It’s the weekend, and we deserve a cartoon break. Peter Pham from Foodbeast definitely delivers here, painstakingly attacking a litany of gross-combination pizzas from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series and turning them into appetizing works of art. We never thought we’d ever be so hungry for a tuna fish, peanut butter, and jelly pizza. (Then again, this is coming from someone whose favorite pizza of all time had shrimp and pineapple and banana on it [and marshmallows if our memory serves] so maybe take our hunger with a grain of salt.) ~ Foodbeast
  • While Anthony Bourdain’s graphic novel Get Jiro was one of our favorite comics of 2012, we never expected the self-contained story to get a sequel and were just happy with what we had. But now it’s getting a prequel, slated for release this October, and we’re even happier. Bring on the sushi and ultraviolence. ~ Vulture
  • Louise Slaughter, congresswoman and longtime sponsor of the Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act, has some words for the FDA about antibiotic use among livestock. ~ TakePart
  • One commodity farmer in central California gives his story of how he’s getting by in the midst of the state’s devastating drought. ~ Ensia
  • Speaking of the drought, it’s easy to point the finger at almonds since nearly our entire almond supply is grown in the state. But as this op-ed piece in the Los Angeles Times reminds us, they actually use a quite conservative amount of water compared to some other offenders in the agriculture industry. Of course, pointing fingers further down the line doesn’t help either—only finding better agricultural solutions will.  ~ Los Angeles Times
