This Lady Is Giving Out ‘Fat Letters’ Instead of Candy For Halloween


Insert obligatory tricks over treats joke, here.

An anonymous woman in North Dakota has informed her neighbors that she will not be giving some of their children candy this Halloween because they are, in her opinion, “moderately obese.”

The offending letter has been republished online by North Dakoka news site Valley News Live, who reports it first got public attention after the author spoke out on a local radio show:


According to Valley News, the anonymous Debbie Downer also discussed the motives behind her little stunt, saying “I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight… I think it’s just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just ’cause all the other kids are doing it.”

Well, we think it’s really irresponsible to fat-shame five year olds on a sugar high (who also ostensibly have access to tons of eggs and toilet paper), and our hope is that the parents of West Fargo will step up and not allow grouchy neighborhood bullies to ruin their kids’ fun. Yeesh.

Burger King’s Twitter Account Got Hacked — Best President’s Day Morning, Ever


For everyone who’s been sleeping in on this glorious holiday morning, here’s what you missed. Around 9 AM Pacific Time, hacker group Anonymous found its way into the Burger King twitter account. And then Burger King got sold to McDonald’s, hired a group of super-ratchets as its PR team and revealed its newest product: BK Bath Salts. You know what they say: it’s on the internet, so it must be true.

Unfortunately, after about an hour of marvelous wtf*ckery, the twitter account has finally been suspended. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Plus, 30k new followers — who will probably have to wait ages for anything like this to happen again, sadsauce.

But in case you didn’t get to it in time yourself , check out some of the “Best-Of-BK-Anonymous-Hacks” (and some of the best responses to it), below:






And of course, you can’t have a good hacking without an equally awesome fan response:
