Take a first look at Prince Fielder's new food show, "Fielder's Choice"

From Amazon scoring an impressive collection of Oscar nominations for "Manchester by the Sea" to Netflix nabbing "The Irishman," the next – and frankly, probably last – collaboration between avid cinephile Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, it seems the world's biggest names are all headed to your small screens. 

And yet all of that pales in comparison to obviously the true biggest name to hit streaming services this year: Prince Fielder. 

Yes, the former Brewers slugger will premiere a new food show on Netflix and Hulu, obviously titled "Fielder's Choice." Fielder first brought up the idea of a cooking show in a post-retirement interview with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, but now, thanks to Prince, we can have a look at actual footage for the show, featuring not a lot of cooking but definitely a whole lot of eating. (Even the cutlery isn't safe from the jaws of Prince!)

The show will feature Fielder and his wife touring the country, visiting restaurants and sampling some of the venues' signature dishes – often with fellow celebrities and sports stars in tow. For instance, that's definitely fellow ex-Brewer C.C. Sabathia chowing down with Prince in a few scenes, while Fielder's Instagram has teased appearances from slugging king Ken Griffey Jr. and actor Chazz Palminteri. So basically, it's a Guy Fieri food travel show minus the Guy Fieri.

Uh, that sounds great!

Plus, in case you'd forgotten – and, considering how sad it was, you'd definitely be forgiven if you tried to – the last time Fielder was in the public eye it was in a neck brace, tearfully retiring from baseball due to several serious neck injuries. It was depressing as hell, watching a guy who radiated joy playing the game and brought that contagious glee to fans across the sport – even from rival teams – betrayed by his body, stuck rigidly having to say goodbye far too early to the sport he obviously loved.

So it's just nice to see Prince back on screen again, smiling, happy and followi…

I know, adorable puppy; we can't believe there's a website to help match people to rescue dogs too!

PawsLikeMe is like eHarmony.com but pairs you with the perfect puppy

Finding the right dog to be your perfect pet can be a challenge. How will a particular breed fit into your established lifestyle? Will the dog like you? I mean, it's not like there's a website out there that can match you up with the right dog ... OH WAIT, WE HAVE THAT NOW!

Meet PawsLikeMe, a dog adoption matching website that works like eHarmony.com, but for pairing you up with the perfect rescue puppy – and with an algorithm that claims an average 91 percent match accuracy.

"Our work in rescue taught us of the need to keep animals out of shelters," explains the official website. "The euthanasia statistics are staggering, and the lives lost will never be regained. Though the numbers are improving, too many animals are euthanized each year, and PawsLikeMe wants to help make that number even smaller by giving current guardians, shelters and rescues an alternative path to finding a new home for a pet."

Here's how it works: You take a quiz at PawsLikeMe's website – either the tremendously thorough 39-question version or a shorter four-question assessment – and lock in your location. From there, PawsLikeMe will create a matching score based on its four key personality quadrants – energy, confidence, focus and independence – and find what rescue dogs in your area have compatible ratings.

Then, the website shows you all of the precious pups in that fit your personality – and vice versa – and you can pick the pup that scratches your particular pet itch, plus give a deserving doggy a happy home. 

So for those looking for looking for a canine companion in their life – or for those looking to rehome a dog in need – check out PawsLikeMe. The odds are good you won't be sent barking up the wrong tree.

Some Burger King locations will be dishing out "Adults Meals" - complete with a sex toy - for Valentine's Day.

For Valentine's Day, Burger King serves up burgers with a side of sex toys

Fast food restaurants have seemingly been working overtime to come up with the most unpalatable food combinations, from combining fried chicken with a chalupa shell to combining fried chicken with pizza and "chicken ham." Not to be outdone, Burger King may have found the most uncomfortable culinary combo yet.

A Whopper and a sex toy. And no, this isn't an April Fool's Day article posted a month and a half too early.

In fact, according to AdWeek, it's actually a Valentine's Day promotion from Burger King called an "Adults Meal," and it's exactly what it sounds like – if what it sounds like is a kids meal that's recently discovered late-night Cinemax. 

The meal comes with two Whoppers, two orders of French fries, two beers and "a romantic adult toy," which according to the just-as-awkward-as-you'd-imagine advertisement ranges from a feather duster (huh?) to a head massager  (... OK) and a fluffy pink blindfold (this makes more sense). Maybe there are some others that can't be shown in a commercial airing on television before 11 p.m., but we may never know. 

The combo is only available on Valentine's Day, and it's only available to adults 18 years and older ... in Israel. Yes, much like the horrifying Chizza, this unholy matrimony between flamebroiled burgers cooked up by high schoolers and cheap plastic Spencer's toy knockoffs has yet to reach American shores.

Until then, you'll just have to order plain old original Whoppers this Valentine's Day – and find you own way to make them erotic.

Gaze in horror upon KFC's The Chizza

Have you watched the ads for those Taco Bell fried chicken-shelled chalupas and thought to yourself, "That looks too healthy"? Do you demand something infinitely more grotesque for your eyes, taste buds and heart valves? Well, the heart-hating gastronomy wizards working in the dark shadowy cauldrons of KFC have created something even more terrifying to sate your seemingly suicidal food cravings: The Chizza.

Yes, unsatisfied with merely ruining the concept of a sandwich with the Double Down a while back, KFC has now decided to ruin the beloved idea of pizza with The Chizza, a personal pizza – complete with tomato sauce, mozzarella and toppings – but with fried chicken taking the place of the crust. For reasons unknowable to the human mind, it seems the pineapple option – decked with whatever "chicken ham" may be, pineapple and a cheese goo – is the main one KFC is pitching.

And listen, between the bacon bottom and mac bottom options served up at SoLo's Summerfest stand, summoned from the most delicious circle of hell, we're no strangers to death-defying pizza alchemy. But this looks just ... horrifying.

Is it just me, or is it shaped like a heart? IT'S TAUNTING US AND OUR FRAIL HUMAN ARTERIES!

Yep, it's mocking us.

There is a light at the end of this fat-clogged tunnel: The Chizza has yet to reach American shores. According to the AV Club, there's still an ocean between us and this monstrosity, as it's been testing its way across Asian markets for a few years now – starting in the Philippines before moving to the likes of Japan, India, Taiwan and, most recently, Singapore – with no U.S. announced release date yet. 

But make no mistake: Like the cold hand of death, it's coming.
