MacBook Air as kitchen knife

When all your kitchen knives are in the dishwasher and you really -- just really -- need to chop up some carrots, what tool do you turn to for backup?

Well, the MacBook Air, of course.

Apple's ultra-lightweight laptop computer has become the star of a few bizarre online cooking videos in recent years, with the latest showing the pointed edge of the contoured laptop being used to hack up carrots, apples, baby corn, mushrooms and even shrimp. (For some reason, the shrimp just make this seem all the weirder.) ...

You can watch several of the videos on YouTube and see pictures and more on a foreign-language blog called Mochrom.
