Veterans Talking About An Epic Beer Run In Vietnam Will Leave You Cheering

Vet-Beer-Run

Everyone’s got their go-to beer run story. You know, that tale you tell at parties and special occasions that’s so epic that it’s become a tradition. John “Chickie” Donohue has exactly that story and it’s pretty amazing.

Back in the ’60s Donohue was a merchant marine from New York. To sum it up, he snuck into a war zone in Vietnam to deliver beer to his neighborhood friends. If that doesn’t say “friendship” we don’t know what else could.

The young Donohue sweet-talked his way overseas and onto the war zone with a burlap sack of Pabst for his childhood pals.

Pabst Blue Ribbon did a 12-minute documentary on Donohue’s story with him and his old friends recalling what exactly happened in Vietnam. They’re calling it “the world’s greatest beer run” and they might just be right. Check it out below.

Customer Recounts Terrifying Experience with McDonald’s New Pay with Lovin’ Campaign

McD-Lovin-Tale

McDonald’s recently began selecting customers to pay with lovin’. As cryptically uncomfortable as this sounds, patrons are given the opportunity to perform embarrassing loving acts toward their loved ones, or strangers, for a free meal.

Sure, this may sound pleasant and heartwarming as the Super Bowl commercial shows. In real life, however, it can get awkward pretty quickly. Redditor Le1tus, recalls an experience with McDonald’s “Pay with Lovin'” campaign in the popular subreddit TIFU (Today I Fucked Up). Needless to say, it quickly takes a pretty hard left turn. Although, take the story with a grain of salt.

So as many of you might know McDonald’s is doing the promotion of paying with love. I happened to be one of the lucky “winners” of this promotion. It was great. A $15 Mckey’D’s food binge for free, man, I couldn’t believe my luck! They said all I had to do is call a family member and tell them “I love you”.

Seemed innocent enough, right? Read on.

The start of the fuckup is calling my mother who knows that I had a brief history with depression and suicidal thoughts from high school bullies. The second fuckup is starting the call with “I love you”.

See where this is going?

She immediately started to freak out (mostly because I’m over 1000 miles away from her and the closest family is about 300 miles away from me) and was pretty scared that I was about to commit suicide. Over the course of the next 15 minutes, I was on the phone reassuring her that I indeed wasn’t about to kill myself and make sure that she wasn’t on the next plane to arrive and come to visit.

(Afterwards she also mentioned that it had given her a small asthma attack, but nothing her inhaler couldn’t handle)

TL;DR : Went to McHeartAttack to get free food and nearly gave mother a heart attack.

Maybe they should have just asked him for a high five.

R.L. Stine Tweets Terrifying Short Story About a Sandwich

Egg-Sandwich-RL-Stine

Growing up, the newest Goosebumps book couldn’t arrive soon enough. There was nothing better than reading through a spooky tale when we should have been learning fractions. We’d breeze through each horror story by author R.L. Stine like we’d breeze through a Double Double, which if you count all the books he’s written you’d know we’re not in the best of health.

The infamous author took to Twitter this week declaring that he would write a live story through the social network. As promised, the tweets began, each more chilling than the last. What finally came of them was an entirely new short story by the author about a sandwich of all things.

Pretty spooky though.
