How to take advantage of local natural disasters to make your tweets go viral

How to take advantage of local natural disasters to make your tweets go viral

Twitter is basically like a stream of consciousness thing that I use strictly for my own entertainment, so I never really expect people to find what I babble about online very interesting. But every now and then: I do something, a bunch of other people think it is worth repeating, and my phone makes noises all day. That is what we in the internet biz call “going viral.” Yesterday was one of those times. That morning I woke up, … Read entire article »

10 THINGS WE HATE ABOUT THE HOLIDAYS!

10 THINGS WE HATE ABOUT THE HOLIDAYS!

    The sufferings of the Holiday season is upon us, and I am in desperate need of a deep freeze.  The only way I can bypass the inevitable annoyances lurking around that festive corner is by introducing my body to a temperature induced suspended animation, and enter into a cryogenic sleep. Fortunately, the demands of my day job as a Talent Director at a Czechoslovakian Brothel (shout out to my girls Svetlana and Hedvika) have been keeping … Read entire article »

Hello Fresh Gift Card Giveaway Bonanza 2000

Historically speaking, we’ve reviewed the meal-in-a-box-delivery solution known as Hello Fresh on more than one occasion (One for the veg, one for the meat – gots to be thorough, people!) and to date, their services still continue to be often imitated by your Plated’s’s and your Blue Apron’s’s’s, but needless to say Hello Fresh has been the most generous with their first time discounts and giveaways.

Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

It can be said that in life, there are times, deep dark times – in which you’re completely out of ideas when it comes to what to eat for lunch. For better or worse, even though you want a salad because it’s the responsible thing to do or you just enjoy the texture of baby corn, sometimes you’re ten feet away from the entrance to the Eastern Avenue / Chester St. Burger King, and you’re … Read entire article »

CHECKERS COMPLAINT LETTER. YOUR PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SUCKS AND YOU SUCK.

CHECKERS COMPLAINT LETTER.  YOUR PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SUCKS AND YOU SUCK.

Every so often, Checkers offers the “Bacon Philly Cheese Steak Sub”, which looks quite tasty.  I’ve never tried it, but have ingested my fair share of their flagship The BIg Buford, which sounds like a character on The Dukes of Hazzard, or the brand name of an oblong sex device. After YouTubing several fat Rednecks gorging themselves on this “Philly Sub” while making gobbling grunts, I knew I had to try it.  When a Redneck moans, you … Read entire article »
