They have bred an orderless durian.

The world may end.

For the rest of you who may not have encountered "the king of fruits,", this is a huge thing about the size of a watermelon with spiky bits. Machetes help when opening it. The texture is a lot like scrambled eggs, with a taste that is...it tastes sweet and tropical. That's the best I can say. But the smell...oh, dear lord, the smell. When we brought durian waffers to game once (bought at the big Asian supermarket) they quickly took on the name "hot trash cookies," and a long running gag. There is also sharkcowsheep who created the mighty surreal villain, Space Durian. Go type "Wom Wom Coconut," into Google away from work. You'll be glad you did.
