Because the Double Down burger (you know, the one with bacon and cheese sandwiched between two pieces of chicken) wasn't enough for us, KFC is now testing a similar concoction with a hot dog and chicken "bun." That substance on the top? Could be mustard, could be cheese, could be the liquefied excretion from a fallen dark god, who knows! Makes you hungry though, huh?
From the Huffington Post:
“It’s kind of ironic,” Overstock President Stormy Simon told The Huffington Post on Wednesday. Simon said someone approached her after Tuesday’s press conference to remind her of the 2013 article. She hadn’t remembered the story, but the president of The Onion texted her after Tuesday’s announcement. “It’s hysterical,” she said. “Reading it today, I thought, ‘This looks like a press release!'”
Overstock’s new service will be part of Overstock’s membership program, Club O. For $19.95 per year, a Club O membership gets you extra discounts, free shipping, special deals at restaurants and more. Membership is free for students, first responders and military personnel.
“We think this makes perfect sense for us to get into this business,” [CEO Patrick] Byrne said.
Meanwhile in New Zealand… it’s “silly season,” the summer months when people are doing a lot of drinking and celebrating.
Apparently they are also doing some pretty stupid stuff.
The NZ Herald recently spoke with a patient flow co-ordinator at Middlemore Hospital in Auckland, and learned about all the dumb accidents they have been seeing lately.
For instance, a man was mowing his lawn when the blades got stuck on sticks and grass. He tried to remove the debris with his hand, and the blade shattered his bones. (He didn’t lose his fingers.)
Among other incidents they have seen are people sticking their tongues in blenders, smashing windows to break into their own homes, chopping their fingers when trying to cut frozen hamburger patties, and a number of chainsaw-related accidents.
“Summer is a time where we get a lot of sporting injuries, but we’ve also got lots of injuries that happen because people don’t engage their minds,” the hospital said.
Something strange happened at the 21st Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday night.
Reese Witherspoon was in the middle of presenting the award for best actor in a supporting film role when a technical error caught her off guard.
A jarring audio clip of an apparent applause track started playing for a few seconds before it was quickly turned it off.
“What was that noise?” she asked. “It wasn’t me.”
Both Witherspoon and the confused audience laughed it off and moved right along. But what if that laughter was fake too?
Maybe everyone in the room was actually just a robot clone and everything about the SAG Awards was fabricated? We may never know.
