Seriously though?

So what do real fashionistas eat for breakfast? No, not Cheerios. How about Burberry Flakes, Gucci Loops, Cartier Crunch or Louis Vuitton Charms? Yeah, that sounds a bit more like it.

Green Machine

A gas-powered, adult-sized big wheel? Count me in. The Green Machine ($75,000) is categorized as a three-wheeled motorcycle, but its looks — inspired by the classic pedaled tricycle of the same name — scream out “toy”, even as its Harley-Davidson v-twin Evo engine pushes you along at speeds of up to 50 mph. Other features include a six-speed transmission, a range of 400 miles, and the ability to attract ridiculous amounts of attention.

Forget Camp Cupcake, introducing the Ibiza of prisions…

Available: free lodging with frequent bikini parties, drugs, and guns. All you have to do, is get caught smuggling into Venezuela.

Welcome to the infamous San Antonio Prison on Margarita Island, where the inmates run the show and prisoners can do anything, except leave:

On the outside, the San Antonio prison on Margarita Island looks like any other Venezuelan penitentiary. Soldiers in green fatigues stand at its gates. Sharpshooters squint from watchtowers. Guards cast menacing glances at visitors before searching them at the entrance.

But once inside, the prison for more than 2,000 Venezuelans and foreigners held largely for drug trafficking looks more like a Hugh Hefner-inspired fleshpot than a stockade for toughened smugglers.

Bikini-clad female visitors frolic under the Caribbean sun in an outdoor pool. Marijuana smoke flavors the air. Reggaetón booms from a club filled with grinding couples. Paintings of the Playboy logo adorn the pool hall. Inmates and their guests jostle to place bets at the prison’s raucous cockfighting arena.

“The Venezuelan prisoners here run the show, and that makes life inside a bit easier for us all,” said Fernando Acosta, 58, a Mexican pilot jailed since 2007.

Biofuel Caffeinated Popcorn

To say I’m addicted to caffeine is an understatement. Having tried caffeinated cookies, brownies, jerky, and even marshmallows. I’m not sure where the line should be drawn but I’ll try anything once. Allow me to introduce you too Biofuel Caffeinated Popcorn ($3; $7/3-pack). Each five ounce bag of the kettle corn-style popcorn offers 150-200mg of caffeine, or about two energy drinks’ worth. Keep some around the office to stave off afternoon drowsiness, and grab some for your home theater, as well — because how the hell else are you supposed to make it through a LOTR: Extended Edition marathon?

If this isn’t a funny twist of irony I don’t know what is…

German luxury car company Mercedes-Benz has called on multi-talented Mississippi rapper-producer David Banner and U.K. singers Estelle and Daley to appear on a new single and in a video entitled ‘Benz.’

Banner, who previously wrote, produced and arranged the song for Gatorade’s 2010 “Gatorade Has Evolved” TV ad campaign, crafted the Mercedes tribute single with an updated version of rocker Janis Joplin’s 1971 protest song ‘Mercedes-Benz.’ Joplin performed the song to show the disparity between social classes rather than sell automobiles.

The ‘Benz’ single will be released on iTunes on April 19, and the same day, Banner, Estelle and Daley will travel to Shanghai, China, where they will perform the song at the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show.

“That’s why they call it soul music, you can’t put an equation to what we just did,” Banner said of the natural chemistry he found with his collaborators. “When we first put it together and listened to it, it was something special.”

Banner’s ‘Death of a Pop Star’ collaboration album with producer 9th Wonder was released on December 21, 2010. He also scored the lead dance sequence of the new ‘Footloose’ remake.
