Build-A-Bear's hastily-deleted tweet was just one of several brands caught in the act of turning one of the most deadly attacks on American soil into a chance to promote their #brand with #sales on Twitter. That doesn't even compare to these four though. Here's Intimacy Box, a lingerie company, who had the gumption to even get the date of the attack wrong:



CVS couldn't resist slapping their corporate logo on their sentimentality (via Seth Fiegerman):



Of course, what better way to think about and honor 9/11 than from a company that makes prosthetic fappable lady-bits:



And finally, here's a series of tweets (via Brandon Wall) from a Bikram Yoga studio in Arlington, VA:



Bikram Yoga eventually apologized for any insensitivity, but not before laying down the Loose Change conspiracy nonsense and a healthy lack of Basic Human Dignity.

People's Best "No Power Here" Moments

Someone on AskReddit got a fun thread going about the times that egotistical people got reminded that they "have no power here." Well, the thread isn't all egomaniacs. Sometimes, it's a case of someone literally not having power. Like the homie that couldn't pay his electricity bill because he couldn't access the internet he needed to get the job done. It can be a deeply satisfying experience to watch someone who was power tripping all over the place get put in necessary check.

One of the Game of Thrones Writers Re-Watched the Red Wedding and Live-Tweeted the Whole Thing

Bryan Cogman is a writer on the HBO show, Game of Thrones. He read the books, wrote for the series, watched the show when it originally aired, and still had a hard time getting through The Red Wedding scene the second time around. Which is understandable because it's not really something any GOT fan wants to go through again. But Bryan did it, just for us. And he live-tweeted the whole episode. Here are the highlights.

If you haven't heard, Kanye West has some money troubles. He's apparently $53 million in debt and asking people like Mark Zuckerberg to invest in his ideas. Pizza Hut has another suggestion for Mr. West. Or at least someone on their social media team does.

In response to one of his weird Twitter rants, Pizza Hut UK tweeted at Kanye offering him a job. Not an advertisement deal, mind you, but a minimum wage pizza making job. Kanye hasn't responded, and I can't decide if the whole thing is well played, or trying too hard. What do you think?

In another attempt to break the world record for stupid, many people have tweeted, facebooked, or instagrammed pictures of their debit cards for one reason or another. Their defense? You can't see the PIN or security code!

Okay, let's break this down. For starters, when was the last time you made an online transaction and the seller required your PIN? I'd bet it's somewhere between "not even once" and "never." That leaves us with the three-digit security code on the back. Call me crazy, but 999 potential security code options isn't that many. A dedicated thief could easily figure out your security code in a matter of hours using pure trial and error.

So, in summary, a word to the wise: don't post your debit card numbers online.
