Wendy’s Savages McDonalds for Busted Black Friday Tweet

Back in the 1990s, could any futurist have predicted that a hallmark of our modern dystopia would be watching billion-dollar companies duke it out via pithy statements on the Internet as we scramble to afford health insurance and foodstuffs? Well, ok maybe. Still, here we are. Some lowly intern at McDonald’s social media department made a crucial mistake and forgot to paste relevant information into a Black Friday tweet and now the Internet is going crazy. As you can see, they posted the tweet before confirming whatever McRib or Quarter Pounder joke they were going to go with, leading a lowly intern at rival fast food giant Wendy’s to poke fun at not only their tweet, but their ability to serve up quality ice cream.

Source Says Charlie Rose Forced CBS to Fire Potential Replacement Josh Elliott: ‘Stabbed Him in the Back’

It looks like Charlie Rose, accused serial harasser and haver of ye olde “Crusty Paw,” screwed CBS even more than previously thought. Thanks to his alleged shenanigans, and some behind the scenes machinations earlier this year, the network is without a big-name host for CBS This Morning. CBS was grooming anchor Josh Elliott for the job but, according to an unnamed source who spoke to New York Post, Rose was threatened by the upstart and arranged for him to get fired, despite acting friendly to his face. “Josh was ousted by Charlie and his monstrous ego,” the source said. “Charlie flattered Josh to his face, invited him to cover on his PBS show, then stabbed him in the back by issuing an ultimatum to [CBS News President] David Rhodes, who has made a huge mistake. CBS would be in a very different place if they’d kept Josh on. Continue reading "Source Says Charlie Rose Forced CBS to Fire Potential Replacement Josh Elliott: ‘Stabbed Him in the Back’"

Twitter Carves Up Tomi Lahren’s ‘Despicable’ Thanksgiving Tweet

Fox News contributor, and occasional ’80s pop star, Tomi Lahren is no stranger to courting controversy. As a matter of fact, one might say she trades in it. Her former boss, Glenn Beck, did accuse her of spouting off “crazy red-meat things” without having the “intellectual firepower to back it up,” after all. Speaking of red meat, Lahren used a day in which Americans typically consume white or dark meat, Thanksgiving, to launch yet another salvo against former NFL player Colin Kaepernick. The tweet places Kaepernick, who is widely credited with starting the anthem protests, on the beach at Normandy during the D-Day landings, thus proving he hates the troops… or something. Who the heck knows anymore. The crude Photoshop job sarcastically makes reference to Kaepernick being named “Citizen of the Year” by GQ, Continue reading "Twitter Carves Up Tomi Lahren’s ‘Despicable’ Thanksgiving Tweet"

Trump Organization Ditches Struggling SoHo Hotel, Erasing Name From Establishment

The Trump Organization just announced it will be walking away from one of its signature properties, the 46-story Trump SoHo hotel in Manhattan. President Donald Trump announced the luxurious lodging during an episode of The Apprentice, calling it a “work of art.” Keep in mind. The Trump Organization is not selling the hotel. They’re simply sanding his name off of the walls and walking away, with Hotels of CIM Group buying out the remainder of the contract. The company has not announced what their plans are for the space, branding wise, but Trump’s name could be removed by the end of the month. Trump SoHo has long been considered one of the president’s business failures, with management recently slashing prices in order to drum up business. An unnamed lawyer told the Continue reading "Trump Organization Ditches Struggling SoHo Hotel, Erasing Name From Establishment"

Good Luck? Man Launching Himself in Homemade Rocket to Prove Earth is Flat

The rocket is ready Posted by Mad Mike Hughes on Wednesday, November 15, 2017
Pythagoras first proposed that the Earth was round sometime around 500 B.C., with Aristotle following suit 150 years later. Heck, the planet’s circumference was even measured by ancient Greek mathematician Eratosthenes over 2,000 years ago. As a matter of fact, the idea that most people, until recently, have thought the Earth was flat is somewhat of a myth, with history indicating that observant sailors, even during the middle ages, have always been able to figure out the planet’s true nature. Also, uh, Ferdinand Magellan circumnavigated the Earth in 1522. That would have been pretty tough if he Continue reading "Good Luck? Man Launching Himself in Homemade Rocket to Prove Earth is Flat"

Retired Cop Says She Was Told to ‘Make Sure’ Roy Moore ‘Didn’t Hang Around’ High School Cheerleaders

A retired Alabama police officer has said that she had been told to keep an eye on Roy Moore to make sure he didn’t hang around cheerleaders. Yikes. Former Gadsden police officer Faye Gary has stated that Moore’s predatory behavior toward young girls “was a known fact,” telling the New York Times, “It was treated like a joke. That’s just the way it was.” “We were also told to watch him at the ball games, and make sure that … he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” she said in an interview Tuesday with MSNBC. Gary also confirmed the recurring allegations that the Alabama Senate candidate was banned from a Gadsden mall for “harassing” young girls. “We were advised that he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores and … really got into a place of where they Continue reading "Retired Cop Says She Was Told to ‘Make Sure’ Roy Moore ‘Didn’t Hang Around’ High School Cheerleaders"
