The Week Of July 22 In Food -- In GIFs

This Week In Food -- In GIFs! is HuffPost Food's latest feature that combines our two favorite things: the week's top food news and absurd internet memes.

This week in food, we learned about a couple's out-of-this-world front yard kitchen garden that's been deemed illegal by authorities, a beer brewed with banned substances and a several-course meal in which rat was the starring ingredient.

Naturally, we didn't think this week's pictures and videos fully told these stories.

Click through the below gallery for these stories and more rendered in GIF form.
