  • Today we ask the age old question.
  • - Will it birthday cake? - Let's talk about that.
  • ( music playing )
  • Good mythical morning.
  • Today is a very special day because we are celebrating our 1,300th episode.
  • - What? 1,300 of these. - Whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo.
  • Yeah! In honor of this milestone,
  • we're going to blow out 1,300 candles on a cake--
  • - Is that possible? - I don't know. We'll find out.
  • And after that, we're going to read some of your complaints about our show
  • because nothing brightens my day more that your critical comments
  • about the way we do things around here.
  • But first, let's kick this celebration off with some cake.
  • Specifically, the kinda cake that's created to celebrate the births of something.
  • - That's called a birthday cake, Rhett. - Birthday cake.
  • Because 1,300 episodes ago, this show was born.
  • Wah! Wah! Wah!
  • But, of course, these will not be your typical birthday cakes.
  • It's time for...
  • ( noisemaker sounding )
  • So your typical birthday cake consists of mixing eggs, sugar, flour,
  • baking powder, and milk, and baking that.
  • Well, we've kept all those base ingredients in a cake.
  • We just added in our own unique ingredients,
  • and then baked that into it and decorated it.
  • And, in honor of this being our 1,300th episode,
  • we were lucky enough to have some of our friends
  • send in their video challenges
  • of what cakes they wanted to see us eat.
  • After today, some of these people may no longer be our friends.
  • - Yes. - First recommendation comes from our friend Andrew
  • from Binging with Babish. Let's take a look.
  • Hey, Rhett and Link, Babish here.
  • Just wanted to congratulate you on 1,300 episodes.
  • That is so many episodes, it can't be real.
  • And speaking of things that can't be real,
  • I would love to see you guys make and eat a fictional cake.
  • And what could be more fictional than one of the icons of your show, Chia Lincoln?
  • I'd love to make and eat this cake myself,
  • but why would I ever do that when you could do it? Bon appetit.
  • He went way back. Some of you know this, some of you might not.
  • But the show that started before "Good Mythical Morning"
  • was "Good Morning, Chia Lincoln," where we did a show
  • as long as a Chia Lincoln survives, so this is--
  • this is about the roots of the show.
  • And the roots of chia seeds.
  • Oh, and I think there's probably roots in this.
  • Or something that tastes worse. Chia seeds, potter's soil...
  • - Mmm. Ooh. Yes. - Potter's clay, radish sprouts,
  • - wheat grass, tree branch candles... - Mm-hmm.
  • And of course, Chia Lincoln with some fake moss on here,
  • So what we're calling this, the Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia cake.
  • Make a wish!
  • - Or Cakeraham Lincoln. - That works as well.
  • Oh, gosh. This is where we're starting
  • because we got people to challenge us.
  • - Oh, gosh. It's so thick. - Friends.
  • Oh, wow. There's a darkness in there.
  • I'm gonna try to add some green sprig like this.
  • Just get a little garnish.
  • Both: Dink it.
  • And sink it.
  • Oh, man, when I was a child...
  • - I had to mow my own grass. - Yeah?
  • And my dad would make me bag up the grass and dump it across the street.
  • - And one day... - Yeah?
  • ...I was a curious little kid. I was like,
  • "I wonder what that would taste like?"
  • - Yeah? - Tastes exactly like this.
  • - ( laughter ) - Yeah. Oh, my goodness.
  • - Of course, I spit that out. - We're not gonna do that here.
  • - No. - What would Babish think?
  • ( gulps ) We didn't make it to 1,300 episodes by not eating dirt.
  • ( chuckles ) But will it birthday cake?
  • Both: No!
  • - All: Hello! - Hey, Rhett and Link,
  • it's Sorted Food off of London, England.
  • Now, we hear you've done an amazing thing
  • and made it to 1,300 episodes.
  • - Man: Whoo! - Well done, you.
  • Now, 1,300 sounds awesome
  • because it's like a baker's dozen times 100,
  • so we thought, "Why not bake a cake in celebration,
  • but rather than it be a delicious cake,
  • how about one with UK ingredients,
  • a black and white pudding cake?"
  • Yeah, when Ben says "pudding," don't get excited,
  • this is definitely not an American pudding,
  • this is a British pudding and more of a sausage.
  • Yeah, black pudding is blood sausage
  • and white pudding is pork fat.
  • So, if you could knock up a cake using those two,
  • that'll be fantastic.
  • Also, feel free to add in a little bit more blood,
  • little bit more fat, you know,
  • - that would be terrific. - Ad lib.
  • - "Knock up a cake," is that what he said? - Yeah, they did say that.
  • - Okay. - I tried to ignore it. You know, with those accents...
  • It depends on how much we love it.
  • ...it feels like they can just
  • talk you into eating anything, you know?
  • They made this sound beautiful,
  • but, guys, I know it's not beautiful
  • because white pudding, like you said,
  • - is pork fat sausage... - Okay.
  • ...which was blended and sliced, and we've got black pudding,
  • or blood sausage, blended and sliced.
  • And then we did what they said?
  • We added extra pork fat
  • and extra pork blood.
  • We call this "The United Cake-dom."
  • It's gonna be divided 'cause I'm 'bout to slice it.
  • No, you're not. Okay.
  • - Okay. - I'll take care of that.
  • And... oh, wow, this sucker's thick.
  • Ooh.
  • Go on the dark side too?
  • Yeah.
  • ( groans )
  • All right, now...
  • You can use that dilly dally to get that out.
  • Blood out to the people.
  • ♪ Happy birthday to us ♪
  • It's, you know, it still doesn't look too horrific.
  • Oh, yes it does.
  • I see glumps and clumps in there.
  • Oh, make a wish.
  • Make the other half of the wish.
  • - Wow. - Ooh, wow.
  • Was there a projectile in that?
  • Uh, no.
  • I should enter the world records book.
  • Man, breakfast of champs.
  • Golly.
  • "Golly," he says.
  • Oh.
  • I'm getting some white and some black.
  • Okay, I'ma go right here.
  • ♪ The cake is white ♪
  • Both: ♪ The cake is black ♪
  • ♪ Together we regret every decision we've ever made ♪
  • Yep, didn't have to rhyme.
  • - Dink it. - Ew.
  • And...
  • sink it.
  • ( gags )
  • It's very rich.
  • It's very iron-y.
  • Man, you could live off this cake
  • for a very, very long time.
  • It is so dense with nutrients.
  • Do you wanna knock it up?
  • No, I'd rather keep my distance.
  • Oh, gosh.
  • I'd rather keep my distance from this cake.
  • There's something on my tongue
  • that I think is like, it's like there's fat
  • - enveloping my tongue... - Yeah.
  • - ...now that I've bit into it. - It's creating a coating
  • - all inside my mouth. - In my mouth, yeah.
  • It's actually not gonna be difficult
  • for me to get down.
  • - 'Cause of the lube. - Yeah.
  • It's gonna slip right down.
  • 'Cause I was expecting a blood taste
  • and it's not necessarily a blood taste
  • 'cause something about "saus-ifying" the blood,
  • "sausage-ifying" makes it doable.
  • Ah! Got it down. Did you get it down?
  • Take that, Sorted Food!
  • Ah!
  • Link: Will it birthday cake?
  • Both: No!
  • 'Sup, Rhett and Link, it's Harley.
  • I wanna say congratulations and mazel tov
  • on 1,300 episodes.
  • What you guys should do
  • is you guys should make something
  • specific to both of you.
  • You know how you're both pretty,
  • with your shiny, little, pretty faces
  • and you're beautiful wavy hair?
  • You guys should make a makeup cake.
  • A cake made out of makeup.
  • A pretty cake for pretty boys.
  • Okay, I love you guys, enjoy that makeup cake.
  • How creative, Harley, thank you.
  • Oh, gosh, blow it out!
  • Ugh! Wow.
  • - Freakin'... makeup cake! - Those are, like...
  • eyeliner candles that just burnt to a crisp.
  • Look at this thing.
  • Give it a rotation for the mythical beasts to see.
  • That is the GMM logo on a compact.
  • Look at that, guys.
  • There's 20 types of eye shadows in this,
  • three types of foundations, 12 different types of bronzer,
  • baked makeup, makeup brushes, lipstick.
  • All ingredients are vegan and edible
  • in very small quantities, I assume,
  • like as a by-product of applying it.
  • I feel like we should apply this before we...
  • Okay, yeah.
  • You know, I wanna look "perty" when I eat my cake.
  • Mm-hmm.
  • Put that back in there 'cause I like it in there.
  • - 'Cause why not? - All right.
  • - Where's my knife? - I got it.
  • It's my knife now.
  • Okay.
  • Oh, gosh, this one's thick too.
  • Everything's so much...
  • Hefty, man.
  • ...thicker than normal cakes.
  • Love a big ole slice-y.
  • Oh, goodness, gracious!
  • Now pull that out towards the peeps.
  • Okay. You getting it?
  • Oh, you're really grunting.
  • Yeah, you gotta, like, saw off the bottom.
  • Okay.
  • Here we go, here we go.
  • Ooh, man.
  • Look at that.
  • Doesn't that look appetizing?
  • - Ew. - Look at that, Link.
  • I thought the soil from earlier was nasty,
  • but this looks like processed version of the same thing.
  • ( sniffs )
  • - Smells okay. - It doesn't smell bad at all.
  • Dink it...
  • and sink it.
  • - Ooh, that's tough. - Yeah.
  • Your mouth knows.
  • Your mouth is designed to know.
  • Yeah, it tells the brain...
  • To not continue to eat.
  • To shut down the throat and the stomach.
  • - This is actually the best one. - Yeah.
  • Which isn't saying much at all.
  • No, but I feel like,
  • if any of 'em are gonna cake, it's this one.
  • Come on, let's be real,
  • makeup, will it birthday cake?
  • Both: No!
  • Hey, what's up, Rhett and Link? Duff here.
  • Hey, guys, congratulations on 1,300 episodes,
  • that is amazing.
  • All right, look, you guys know that I'm the ace of cakes
  • and I'm the master of all cakes incredible, right?
  • And you guys are the aces of weird and disgusting food.
  • So I was thinking we should take what I do
  • and take what you do and combine them together
  • to make something insane.
  • Here's the idea,
  • let's make a birth cake
  • out of an actual cow placenta.
  • So you gotta make a cake out of a placenta.
  • Okay, Duff, you demented fool...
  • we have one-upped your idea.
  • This isn't just cow placenta,
  • we've created the birth cake, as you requested,
  • in the shape of a female reproductive system,
  • so this is also an educational segment.
  • Link: And this brown stuff is cow...
  • Yeah, so there's deer placenta mixed in
  • because why not go for deer when you've already got cow?
  • Yes, cow placenta is draped over the top of this.
  • We've got pork blood for decoration
  • and also pig uterus
  • because what's a birth cake without a little pig uterus?
  • Let's make a wish, I'm gonna make this one out loud,
  • I wish I didn't have to eat this.
  • Whoo! Me neither. Whoo!
  • Oh, gosh.
  • Well, I mean, I gotta get a little bit of this.
  • That's too much fondant, you gotta go to the middle.
  • I'm getting it.
  • And then I'm gonna add a little placenta.
  • This show has done amazing things for us.
  • And it's also done this to us.
  • I'm gonna have to use the scalpel...
  • to peel off a little bit of placenta.
  • Golly!
  • Guys, this is... ugh, this is so wrong.
  • - Okay. - Ugh.
  • Oh, you're using the--
  • Ooh, yeah, give me a little.
  • You want a little bit?
  • Yeah, give me a little, little, little.
  • Oh, mine's got some blood on it.
  • All right, so I've got some on the end of mine.
  • There's yours.
  • ( sighs )
  • ( sighs deeply )
  • Dink it.
  • - Congratulations, Rhett. - Yeah, congratulations to you, man.
  • - Boy, you know you've made it... - Yeah, look at us.
  • - ...when you're eating placenta. - Living the dream!
  • Whoo! Golly...
  • Oh!
  • Just keep chewing and stop thinking.
  • I see him...
  • Ugh!
  • ...laughing at us.
  • If we don't get this down,
  • we won't be able to tell the people if it cakes.
  • Mm-hmm!
  • This isn't about us,
  • this is about you.
  • Oh!
  • - It's so chewy. - I did it!
  • I ate cow placenta, and deer placenta,
  • and pig uterus!
  • - Hi, Mom! - ( gags )
  • Aren't you proud?
  • I did it again, Mom!
  • ( gags )
  • Link's not doing so well, Mom!
  • I got it, Rhett's mom!
  • Hey!
  • - Where is she? - Oh, ow!
  • - Are you over there? - Ow, you just...
  • you almost cut my finger off.
  • On what?
  • You put the chairs together.
  • - Oh, sorry. - Ah!
  • - Hey, Rhett's mom! - Hey!
  • I got it down.
  • Go out into the living room
  • and tell Dad what happened.
  • I know he doesn't watch and you tell him.
  • Tell him you're proud.
  • Cow "placlenta."
  • "Cow 'placlenta.'"
  • Link: Will it birthday cake?
  • Both: No!
  • Hi, Rhett and Link, it's Sean Evans
  • from First We Feast.
  • Congratulations on 1,300 episodes,
  • what an incredible milestone.
  • And to celebrate, I would be so honored
  • if you guys ate a cake inspired by
  • one of my great passions in life, spice.
  • And not just any spice,
  • I want this cake so packed full of spice
  • that one bite will make you go blind.
  • I'm talking jalapeños, habaneros, Carolina Reapers.
  • You guys know the drill.
  • Cheers, Rhett and Link.
  • 1,300 episodes, salute.
  • But I have to know, Carolina Reapers,
  • will it cake?
  • Sean.
  • Sean?
  • We ain't friends.
  • I know what I told you,
  • but it's off, the friendship is off.
  • Well, we haven't eaten it yet.
  • What, to make us go blind?
  • Okay, here it is, Sean!
  • - Thank you. - ( blowing )
  • Make a wish that we don't go blind.
  • This thing is chock-full of peppers, guys.
  • Let me list them all off, ghost pepper,
  • scorpion pepper, habanero pepper,
  • Japanese hot pepper, jalapeño peppers,
  • dried Nora Chiles,
  • Chiltepin chilies, bird's eye chilies
  • aji panca chilies,
  • Costeno rojo-- I took French, sorry-- chilies,
  • aji amarillo chilies, cascabel chilies,
  • pasilla de Oaxaca chilies,
  • and, of course, our nemesis,
  • the Carolina Reaper.
  • You should be like a pepper announcer.
  • You know, like, when you get something at a Mexican restaurant,
  • you're like, "What's in this?",
  • and you come up to the table,
  • you don't make guacamole,
  • you just slightly mispronounce all the peppers that are in there.
  • - Oh, thanks for making me laugh. - ( Rhett laughs )
  • Oh, I feel I'm on the verge of torture.
  • Look at that thing, man.
  • Look at that, look at that cross-section.
  • And then there's pepper on the outside as well.
  • So I'm coming here grabbing.
  • You're setting the bar.
  • I feel like that's aggressive.
  • It may look small to you...
  • - Hey, man, hey, hey, hey... - ...who aren't about to eat it...
  • - ...1,300, man. - 1,300.
  • Go big or go home.
  • I know the route home,
  • it's this way.
  • My mom is watching right there in that camera,
  • that's where she watches.
  • She has a live feed of just that camera
  • - 'cause it's my camera. - Really?
  • - Yeah. - And she gets mad...
  • She's like, "I like your profile,
  • it reminds me of my daddy."
  • - Oh, gosh. - Hey, Mom.
  • - I got... - Of course, when I shaved my beard
  • and I sent her a picture,
  • she just texted back, "Poor baby."
  • Oh, gosh, yeah.
  • And, you know what?
  • Even with the beard,
  • I think we're both about to be poor babies.
  • - Okay. - Dink it.
  • And sink it.
  • Oh, I can taste that it's about to hit hard.
  • - Uh-oh. - There it is.
  • ( exhales slowly )
  • Uh-uh. I don't wanna swallow it,
  • I'm too afraid.
  • Swallow it, you can do it!
  • You can do it! Overcome it!
  • - Mm. - I'm getting...
  • I'm getting weirdness right here.
  • - ( hiccups ) - Oh, you got the hiccups?
  • I'm not getting the hiccups.
  • I think the cake took the hiccup away from me.
  • - There's something about... - It's going up the back of my head.
  • ...the slight sweetness of the...
  • It helps, it does help.
  • ...of the icing, like, made it a little bit more uniform
  • and not quite as biting as it would be if it was a direct pepper.
  • This is nothing like eating the whole pepper.
  • Thank goodness.
  • I've got all the evidence that I need
  • to answer the question.
  • Carolina Reaper and assorted peppers,
  • will it birthday cake?
  • - Link: Yes. - Rhett: Yes?
  • Congratulations to you, Rhett.
  • Congratulations to you too.
  • Congratulations to us. You're great.
  • - You're great. - We're both great.
  • No, no, I'm the greatest.
  • What?
  • ( laughter )
  • I was trying to, 'cause it's 1,300,
  • - I was like... - No, that's how it starts.
  • - Oh. - Yeah.
  • - I'm the greatest. - No, but I was changing it,
  • I was like, "No, you're the greatest."
  • Oh, no, you're the greatest.
  • - No, we're both great. - We're both great.
  • And you're great.
  • All right, stick around because we're not done with the cake,
  • we're about to blow out 1,300 candles.
  • We couldn't have done it without you.
  • And to thank you for being your mythical best,
  • we made this limited-edition T-shirt
  • available for only 24 hours at mythical.store.
