When an Illinois couple had their wedding announcement printed in a local paper, the fast food giant was quick to hop on social media and find the real couple in question:
A half-dozen puns about the "whopper" of an event later, Burger King tracked down the couple and offered to pay for the entire wedding and provide gifts! You can see their ecstatic reaction from their interview here:
Meanwhile, every single McDonald in the nation is starting to feel like they've been stiffed, and our friend Wendy was unavailable for comment.
This week in Springfield, Illinois the forces of evil have emerged victorious.
Mayor J. Michael Houston has awarded G.I. Joe’s nemesis Cobra Commander the key to the city.
“Springfielders near and far, I accept your Mayor’s generous gift,” he said. “And let it be known that I too bring a gift for every man, woman and child of this city that is so near and dear to my heart; an invitation to join with me. Join Cobra!”
It makes a lot of sense, considering Springfield served as a secret base for the villain and his forces in the cartoon.
The stunt is actually a promotion for the upcoming G.I. Joe convention which will be held in the city, which they describe as the “mythical home of COBRA,” from April l9-12.
So now you know, and knowing is half the battle.
Here’s a supercut of Cobra Commander shouting at everyone because that’s just what he does and will continue to do in Illinois now that they’ve welcomed him with open arms.
Lebanese host Rima Karaki was interviewing Islamic sheik Hani Al Sibai last week on Al-Jadeed TV about why some Christians would want to join ISIS.
When he started to drag on, she interrupted him to keep the conversation moving, but he was not pleased at being told what to do.
“Listen, don’t cut me off,” he said. “I will answer as I please.”
She politely warns him that they are running out of time, and he rudely tells her to “shut up,” and that it is “beneath” him to be interviewed by her.
Eventually she just cut his mic to put a stop to it.
“Had I not answered, I would have hated myself, and I don’t want to hate myself,” she told The Guardian. “When he said shut up, it was no longer possible to shut up because I would be insulting myself and would lose everything.”
The confrontation between the two has since gone viral, and Sibai is demanding an apology from the network.
The video now has over 5 million views, and Karaki is getting lots of support from viewers on Twitter.
