Have you ever invited a neighbor over for a barbecue or a beer (who am I kidding, none of us could do that because we can't afford homes, but I digress), and they get a little drunk and start saying weird things? What if that neighbor was Donald Trump?



America's Dong, Florida surely provides a terrific territory for hijinks and fortunately for us, Mandatory has compiled these great comics drawn by Dave Rappoccio showcasing one of the weirdest super heroes out there, Florida Man. Rumor has it that newspaper headlines supply him with powers of unknown strength in his battle against sound logic.

As you get older, you may become beholden to the fact that monsters from the stories we were exposed to as children don't exist. Instead the monsters often come within, but try convincing a child that they may be the monster may be some facet of their being. But enough of that psychobabble, let's check out these web comics.

Gizmodo found out why Burger King's black burger turns your poop green.

As October's shadow loomed long on September, we knew Burger King would bring a black-bunned burger to celebrate the creepy season.

What we didn't know is that eating the thing would turn your poop a vibrant, verdant, lustrous green. Careful there, that link shows actual human waste.

Furthermore, we didn't know why. We only had to hold ourselves against the dark ignorance that blanketed us.

People had lots of speculation, from A-1 sauce to demonic leprechauns, but it was Gizmodo that ultimately revealed the truth.



But while the poop is indisputably green, the dye causing it might not be. The dyes that make the bun black are a combination of Yellow #6, Red #40, Caramel Color, and Blue #1. Blue #1 is also known as Brilliant Blue FCF. Brilliant Blue doesn't absorb well in the intestines, so it often comes out in the poop—it just doesn't come out blue. The internet is full of concerned parents talking about giving their kids a purple drink or smoothie (made with red and blue food coloring) only to change green diapers or find green stains on underwear. Brilliant blue is often combined with tartrazine, a yellow food dye, to make green dye. A site called The Poop Report claims that blue food dye (Blue #5 this time) combines with bile to make poop green, although bile by itself can turn poop green.

In the end, the green product of the black burger is probably the result of blue food coloring. The good news is that it's coming out of you because it's not getting absorbed into your body.



Now we can sleep soundly and try to eat stuff that's not cosmetically dyed to celebrate a time of year.
