Beyonce’s Candid Restaurant Photo Spawned A Buffet Of Memes

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

If you’re at celeb status like Beyonce or Kim Kardashian, chances are your extremely candid photos are apt to get memed to death when the opportunity presents itself.

That’s exactly what happened when Beyonce uploaded a collection of photos to her Instagram account last night. Time reported that the photos were taken at Los Angeles restaurant Beauty and Essex for a birthday celebration.

One of these photos captured Beyonce ordering off of the menu at the restaurant. Naturally, the internet gave it its best shot at interpreting the dialogue in this exchanged. We’ve compiled some of the funniest guesses the Internet has put forward:

Some of them were comical suggestions as to what Beyonce actually ordered that night.

Others made some puns about her hit song Lemonade and the fact that she was at a restaurant.

 

Apparently, the menu looks a lot like a receipt, because tons of jokes about the bill came flowing in too.

Well done, internet. You’ve really taken it to the next level with this round of memes.

Chipotle Faces $2 Billion Lawsuit For Allegedly Using Photo Of Woman Without Permission

Chipotle-Ext-Stk-021

This is probably not the best way for Chipotle start off the year, but the burrito bowl maven is in the middle of another lawsuit. This time, a woman is suing the fast-casual chain for more than $2 billion for using an image of her in a promotional photo she says Chipotle had no permission to use.

According to Grubstreet, Leach Caldwell of California is seeking a least $2,237,633,000 from the company for a photo taken by a food photographer Steve Adams in 2006. Caldwell alleges that Adams took a photo of her eating at a Denver Chipotle.

Caldwell refused to sign a form to use that image after her encounter with him, but discovered eight years later that the image of her was used as promotion at a Florida Chipotle store in 2014. Additionally, alcohol was digitally added to Caldwell’s photo in front of her.

Chipotle founder and CEO Steve Ells and Adams are named as defendants of the suit. The specific amount in her suit is a reflection of the company’s profits from 2006-2015.

Joe’s Crab Shack Had A Lynching Photo In Their Restaurant And Someone Finally Caught It

Joes-Crab-Shack-Hang

Joe’s Crab Shack is facing some major heat after a picture at one of their restaurants went viral. Two diners, Tyrone Williams and Chauntyll Allen, were at a Minneapolis location of the seafood chain when they were seated at a table with a picture of a public execution embedded into the surface.

Titled Hanging at Groesbeck, the image shows a black man about to be hanged in Texas in 1895. The soon-to-be-executed man says in a speech bubble:

All I said was “I didn’t like the gumbo.”

Williams posted the photo on his Facebook and it quickly garnered attention. While the manager apologized to the two over the use of the image, Allen said they were shocked that something like that could be used so casually.

The president of the Minneapolis NAACP chapter, Nekima Levy-Pounds, demanded that the restaurant take down the image immediately and apologize to the public.

Joe’s has since responded to the incident with this statement:

We take the matter regarding the photo used in the Roseville, MN location very seriously. The offensive photo was immediately removed from the restaurant. We apologize for the incident and look forward to continuing to serve the Roseville community.

Needless to say, Joe’s will have some major damage control to deal with.

Lovely Photo Map Highlights Each State’s Signature Food

state-food-sm

Round-ups of foods from around the country are nothing new, but it’s definitely been a while since we’ve seen one as pretty as this.

Inspired by the Olympics and politics, Cooking Channel decided to throw together a “culinary roadmap” of the most iconic foods in each state. Dishes were chosen via votes from Cooking Channel readers and viewers, so blame them if you feel buffalo wings aren’t an accurate representation of New York, or salmon candy of Alaska, or vinegar french fries of Delaware.

Our personal favorite is Nevada, with the Las Vegas All You Can Eat Buffet. Although, vodka would have made a solid runner up.

Check out the full listicle version, complete with recipes and food histories, here.

PHOTOGASM: This Cafe is Shaped Like a Giant Vintage Camera

cameracafe1

Calling all vintage/photo-loving foodies: there’s apparently a giant camera in South Korea that doubles as a nifty camera-themed cafe.

It’s called the Dreaming Camera, and according to blogger Messy Nessy Chic, the small mom and pop, located just east of Seoul, is owned by a former air force helicopter pilot and designed to look like an oversized red Rolleiflex. Inside, the walls are lined with an assortment of books, panoramic windows, and vintage cameras, and outside, two round windows on the first and second floors serve as the camera’s “lenses.”

Anyone lucky enough to live nearby can check the cafe’s Facebook page for hours, location, and some gorgeous (of course) photography of the owner’s family and grounds. The rest of us, meanwhile, will just be sitting here, consumed by our envy and photo-lust, wah.
