Such is our lack of surprise at London's inventive and irreverent pop-up scene that when a retweet popped up on Twitter last week about a new venture called Rim Sum, a restaurant featuring "steamed dumplings, all packed with minced poultry bumholes", we barely raised an eyebrow.
Coprophiles might be dismayed to learn that Rim Sum doesn't it fact exist. It comes from the potty-minded @FoodPit, a Twitter feed that is mercilessly skewering the food fad tropes and serving them back to us in tiny bites of tweeted goodness.
Here are a few favourites, but we reckon you should follow them, at least until the joke wears off and one of the ideas becomes reality.
Pepperazzi, Portobello. Spicy tapas, but departing diners must face a mob of howling photographers hurling fistfuls of black pepper eyewards

The Incredible Ciderman, Crystal Palace. This reeking alley holds SE London’s best-kept secret: a tramp who shoots strongbow from his wrists

Beets by Dre. What is it with rappers and opening restaurants in Chelsea? Purple food & pounding bass make this a confusing experience. 2/5

Cabbage Difference Engine, Fulham. A clattering mechanical computer in the cellar of a pub tells you how alike vegetables are. Why? 4/5

Atlas Glugged. Wholly dangerous Objectivist hooch dungeon. The electrics all spark & the booze will blind you. £38 for a single galt. Nope.
