Arby’s and Old Spice Drop a Roast Beef-Patterned Sweatsuit

Arby’s and their proficiency of meats have tapped in with Old Spice to help tackle the meat sweats. The partnership does feel hand in glove the way Old Spice does offer sweat protection via its Sweat Defense Dry Spray.

The result of this new collaboration is a limited-edition Meat Sweat Defense kit that includes a co-branded Arby’s and Old Spice roast beef-patterned sweatsuit and a hilarious new commercial starring the Old Spice guy, Isaiah Mustafa, and actor Ving Rhames, the voice of Arby’s.

Arby’s x Old Spice Meat Sweat Defense kits were available for a limited time at Arbysshop.com for $60. The kits feature a roast beef-patterned Meat Sweat sweatshirt and sweatpants, a co-branded towel, sweatband and two Old Spice dry sprays — a worthy arsenal to combat the meat sweats after a visit to Arby’s.

Lucky Charms Introduces Limited-Edition Magic Gems Cereal

Lucky the Leprechaun is known for his delicious collection of magical charms, which are obviously the best part of Lucky Charms cereal. This summer, Lucky is adding a bright, new and limited-edition Magic Gem charm to your next bowl.

The backstory for the Magic Gems goes as such: “Magic Gems have been stowed away in the goblin den for centuries and hold the power of rainbow vision to see in the dark, helping whoever finds them navigate their way through the darkest of places.”

Perhaps this is a metaphor for delicious Lucky Charms being a beacon of light in the darkness of bleak breakfast cereals — or maybe I just waked and baked again.

Limited edition Lucky Charms with Magic Gems is available now at your local retailer nationwide.

Quick-Thinking Woman Held Hostage Uses Grubhub to Alert Police

Quick-thinking actions of a 24-year-old New York woman has lead to the arrest of a 32-year-old man that allegedly held her against her will and sexually assaulted her.

The victim placed an order on the Grubhub food delivery app and left a harrowing note for workers to see: “Please call the police his going to call me when you delivered come with the cones please don’t make it obvious.”

An order for an Irish breakfast roll and a beef burger at 5:50 a.m. on June 19 reached The Chipper Truck Cafe employees in Yonkers, who sensed something was wrong after reading the seemingly hasty plea in the “additional instructions” field.

Thanks to the astute workers at The Chipper Truck Cafe, they contacted the police, who showed up to the home of Kemo Royal in the Bronx. Royal was identified as the man who had allegedly held the victim against her will and assaulted her, and was subsequently charged with rape, unlawful imprisonment, strangulation, criminal sex act and sexual abuse, among other counts.

The suspect is also charged in the attempted sexual assault of another young woman just a few days prior.

Credit the victim’s resourcefulness and wherewithal for contacting the authorities in such a daunting situation.

Burger King Employee Trending After Receiving Goodie Bag for 27 Years of Perfect Attendance

An unidentified Burger King employee is trending right now due to a video of them receiving a goodie bag after working at the company for 27 years, with no days missed.

The viral video first appeared on Reddit’s ABoringDystopiaPage, as it showed the employee displaying to the camera a goodie bag he received as a reward for his nearly three decades of service at Burger King. Its contents were a movie ticket, a bag of Reese’s Pieces, a Starbucks tumbler, a lanyard, two pens, some keychains and two packs of Lifesavers.

Despite the worker appearing genuinely grateful for the reward, many on social media were upset at how modest it seemed in comparison to 27 years of perfect attendance at Burger King.

And though some assumed that the goodie bag gift was from his co-workers, the comments section was still fiercely opinionated, with thoughts ranging from being appalled at how Burger King allegedly treated this employee’s loyalty to admiration of the humble and thankful attitude the man showed.

One person tweeted,”We trying to figure out why after 27 years of loyalty you gifted one of your most loyal employees some back to school supplies.”

Another chimed in, “People are talking down on him, it’s weird. Some people really don’t need much in life and y’all forget it was only a few hundred years ago where all we did was hunt and gather.”
