Jörg makes an Oreo-shooting pump-action crossbow

The latest from The Slingshot Channel: an Oreo Separation Pump Gun.

It's a basic human desire to destroy an OREO cookie with a pump action crossbow. Some men simply love neither cookie nor creme, so sometimes a man just needs to invent a badass crossbow to do the hard work of shooting the two from a powerful homemade weapon. Today, that man is meat lover and cookie-destroyer Jörg Sprave. Watch him operate the repeating 14-shot weapon he created that separates OREO cookies into very fine (but separated) crumbles.

(Thanks, Matthew!)


  1. My first thought was to use this to shoot an Oreo into somebody’s mouth. My second thought was that this would be a really bad idea! And my third thought was that it might be okay if it went through some milk first.

      1. Cross the streams in midair? The tricky part is balancing between not soaking the Oreo with enough milk and busting the teeth of the recipient vs. having too much milk and having the Oreo break up in a midair soggy mess that splats the recipient in the face. This is truly an engineering challenge for our times!

  2. “It’s a basic human desire to destroy an OREO cookie with a pump action crossbow.”

    Until I watched the video, I did not know that. However, I now completely agree.

  3. In the headline: “crossbow” is inaccurate as their is no bow in the mechanism. It’s just a pump-action slingshot.
    That said, I want one.

  4. why isn’t Jörg the head of some socially scary group or country or at least have his own (dedicated) TV show?  he’s twice as entertaining as anything currently on ((which seems to be only reruns of ‘big bang theory’)) and seven times more impressive than the current head of the NRA.

    1. Why does he need a TV show in some small eastern european country? He’s reaching plenty of people on Youtube. 

  5. Is this another one of those “OMG this is such a cool and independent project not at all sponsored by Nabisco” videos like that Oreo de-creme-ing machine a few weeks ago?

    1. He’s probably responding to that one. But go watch his other videos! Jörg is unrelentingly amazing. And a terrifying human being.

  6. This is why I love language. I am fairly certain this is the first time in history that the words “Next we are going to shoot an Oreo into ballistic gelatin” were uttered in that order.

    1. I disagree. It seems to be fairly common actually.  I’ve now seen this very sentence twice in the space of a few minutes.

    1. we do have them, but they are like really cheap on amazon and sinze he probably needed a lot he would have had to grase a lot of supermarkets to get the desired amount… amazon delivered them right to his door :)

  7. Next up: a scientific study finds that Oreos are more damaging to one’s health if ingested than if shot against the temples at point-blank range.
