When it comes to theme parks, there are some pretty quirky choices across the globe. Apparently the concept of “amusement” is not universal, so what might seem fun in one culture might seem strange to another. Check out these weird wonderlands that showcase dancing dwarfs, drug lord hippos and even canine farts. Here are 10 of the weirdest and wackiest theme parks around the world that you might want to visit just for kicks.
Trevor Noah has had enough of Ted Cruz. On Thursdays episode of The Daily Show, Noahs obvious dislike for Cruz came to a head. After outwardly calling him an asshole, Noah goes on to destroy everything about the man who may go down in history as the most hated man ever in congress.
Democrats dont like him. Establishment Republicans dont like him. Americans dont like him. The only people who keep Ted Cruz surging in polls are the worst the country has to offer: People who think Donald Trump is too liberal.
Cruz takes such a lashing from Noah that it seems unlikely he wont spend the day Friday sitting on a rock in Texas in tears. The man whose response to the San Bernardino shooting was to send out invites to a 2nd Amendment gun party deserves every bit of it.

After a long egg breakfast phase (fueled by this simple technique for soft boiled eggs), Ive begun craving my old standby, baked oatmeal. I had the intention of making a carrot cake-esque baked oatmeal, but the more ingredients I thought about adding, the more it began to resemble those super scrumptious Morning Glory Muffins. The baked oatmeal version has all the awesome flavors and textures as the Morning Glory Muffins (apple, pineapple, coconut, walnut, and carrots), but is quite a bit easier to make, has less sugar, and feels more like breakfast than a treat or dessert. I love it!
If youre new to baked oatmeal, theyre a great make-ahead breakfast that can be quickly reheated each morning for a filling and healthy start to your day. Although it does take a little time to bake, the preparation is simple you just stir everything together, then pour it into a casserole dish, and then bake. The oats absorb the lightly sweetened custard-like base as they bake to create a soft, warm, non-gooey version of oatmeal. Many people misinterpret the photos and think that the baked oatmeal is crunchy, but it is not. It is soft, moist, and almost fluffy in texture. Its just fabulous. So, heres the newest version!
Morning Glory Baked Oatmeal
- 112 cups unsweetened apple sauce $1.29
- 2 large eggs $0.44
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar $0.08
- 12 tsp vanilla extract $0.14
- 12 tsp cinnamon $0.05
- 12 tsp salt $0.02
- 34 tsp baking powder $0.03
- 2-3 carrots, shredded (about 112 cups) $0.33
- 1 (15 oz.) can crushed pineapple in juice (drained) $1.09
- 13 cup shredded coconut (sweetened) $0.26
- 13 chopped walnuts $1.63
- 1 cup milk (dairy or soy) $0.25
- 212 cups old-fashioned rolled oats $0.43
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the apple sauce, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.
- Peel the carrots and shred them on a cheese grater. Drain most of the juice out of the can of pineapple (it can be saved for smoothies or cocktails). Add the shredded carrots, pineapple, coconut, and chopped walnuts to the apple sauce mixture. Stir until well combined. Add the milk and stir again. Finally, add the dry oats and stir until they are well mixed and coated in the wet mixture.
- Pour the oat mixture into an 8×8 or 9×9 inch casserole dish that has been coated with non-stick spray. Bake (uncovered) in the oven for 45 minutes. Serve hot or refrigerate until ready to eat. The baked oatmeal can be enjoyed cold or reheated in the microwave.
Step by Step Photos
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together 1 1/2 cups unsweetened apple sauce, two large eggs, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp salt, and 3/4 tsp baking powder. A whisk works best for this step to help break up the eggs and get everything well incorporated.
Peel 2 or 3 carrots and then shred them with a cheese grater. You want about 1 1/2 cups of shredded carrots total. Drain one 15-ounce can of crushed pineapple in juice (you dont want to add TOO much moisture to the oats). Add the carrots, pineapple, 1/3 cup chopped walnuts, and 1/3 cup shredded (sweetened) coconut to the bowl. Stir to combine. Youll want to switch to a spoon for this step because all the little bits will get stuck in a whisk.
Add one cup of milk (dairy and soy both work well) and stir it into the mixture.
Lastly, stir in 2 1/2 cups of dry old-fashioned rolled oats. Although some people have used quick oats for my baked oatmeal recipes, I think the old-fashioned rolled oats work best because they have more texture. Steel cut oats require more cooking time and more moisture than rolled oats, so you cant simply sub those in place of the rolled oats.
Pour the mixture into a casserole dish coated with non-stick spray. Youll want to use a basic 88 or 99 inch casserole dish.
Bake in the preheated 375 degree oven for 45 minutes. Now its ready to eat! Or ready to refrigerate for the rest of the week.
I like to add a little splash of milk on top and then Im ready to dive in! Its sweet, full of texture, and loads of flavor!

If you don’t have a ‘from scratch’ brownie recipe, you NEED this in your life! Fudgey, light, moist and utterly delicious… And covered in Nutella
185g | 6.5oz unsalted butter, cubed
200g | 7oz good quality dark chocolate
90g | 3.2oz plain flour
40g | 1.5 unsweetened cocoa powder
3 large eggs
270g | 9.5 caster sugar
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees celcius / 320 faranheit
Place butter into a saucepan over a medium heat and bring to a gentle boil.
Turn heat OFF and then add dark chocolate stirring intermittently until the chocolate has melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly
Place 3 eggs and sugar into a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until they have almost doubled in size and are super light and fluffy. At least 7 minutes
Sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl
Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and gently fold the two together using big round figure 8 movements. Stop mixing as soon as you no longer see vanilla streaks through the chocolate batter
Re-sift the flour & cocoa evenly over the top of the chocolate mixture and fold together, again using the figure 8 action
**OPTIONAL – add 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks and 1/2 cup milk chocolate chunks, or nuts as desired**
Pour into a brownie tin that’s been sprayed with cooking spray and lined on the base with baking paper
Bake for 20-25 minutes. The top should start to look a little flaky and the middle should spring back lightly when touched
Remove from oven and make ganache while the brownie cools.
