THE WORKSHOP — Joseph Herscher is an evil genius, but he uses his evil genius for good.

But how, you ask, can evil genius be used for good? When you use it to do weird and hysterical things for strangers on the internet. Or in Herscher's words, if you "solve everyday problems using familiar objects in unfamiliar ways."

In one of his more recent videos, Herscher "solves" the problem of eating a five-course meal in under two minutes without using hands (to do the actual eating, anyway). He does this using Rube-Goldberg machine mechanisms on a conveyor belt to get the food into his mouth.

The machine tips, blows and shoves food into his mouth as he tries to chew and swallow before the next course is forced into his gob. A bit gross? Maybe. But the resulting video is oddly cinematic and intense. He definitely takes us on a journey.

But then he gives us another evil genius gift. It's one thing for Herschel to be fed by the machine because he built it and knows what's coming. It's quite another to make his friends try the machine without any idea of how to complete the task before them. Now that part is a bit messy and gross, but hilarious.

The main part of the video ends after 4 minutes and 25 seconds (and is 100% worth it), but you can see how messy Herscher's breakfast gets during the credits thanking his Patreon sponsors. Or you can see more of his "problem solving" machines on the Joseph's Machines YouTube channel.
