Bud Light Releases Special Edition Area 51 Cans

You’ve probably seen all the Area 51 memes you can handle, and made all the Area 51 jokes you can possibly make with your buddies, but Bud Light is offering one last burst of relevancy with its special edition Area 51 label. No, seriously.

It all started with Bud Light jumping in on the Area 51 hype, offering free Buds to “any alien that makes it out” of the proposed September 20 “raid.”

They then promised to release the limited edition Area 51 label if their tweet received 51,000 retweets. The Twitter world bit, and actually made it happen, so that out of this world Bud Light can and bottle are now a reality.

The labeling says a few different things, the longest being a greeting that reads, “Greetings Earthlings. This is the famous Area 51. We know of no space beer by any other life form which is brewed and aged to be more refreshing. Our cryogenic aging procedures a light bodied space lager with a fresh taste, a crisp clean finish, and a smooth drinkability. Take us to your leader… for drinks.”

At the bottom of the can, there is a “We come in peace,” sign, which I don’t fully trust, because, you know, aliens.

Although the whole Area 51 stuff is a bit hokey, this label is pretty cool, and should be a fun addition to the summer bbq.

Wendy’s Spicy Nuggets Officially Returning In August


Wendy’s is finally making good on their promise to bring back its spicy chicken nuggets, announcing that August 19 will be the day that fast food justice prevails.

Wendy’s promised fans that they’d bring back their beloved spicy nuggets, after Chance the Rapper made the request in early May.

It didn’t seem like a publicity stunt, but Wendy’s ran with it and tweeted at Chance saying, “The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet to 2 Million likes, with will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK.”

It seemed almost impossible, seeing how 2 million likes would be the all-time Twitter record, but spicy nugget fans were not to be underestimated. The goal was demolished in less than two days, and while a return date was not set at the time, they promised it was coming.

Chance the Rapper said he would be releasing his album on the same date as the nugget release, then started promoting a July album drop, leading many to believe the nuggets would follow that timeline.

Unfortunately, unless Chance changes his plans, the two summer drops will not coincide.

Wendy’s has gone as far as creating a Google Calendar invite link that fans can click on and save the date. It’s kind of cute, and honestly, I probably will be marking my calendar as an admitted spicy nugget fiend.

Burger King Launching A Limited ‘Upside Down Whopper’ In Honor Of Stranger Things

Burger King has flipped the script on its classic Whopper in honor of the upcoming season of Netflix’s Stranger Things.

The not-so-mysterious sandwich is exactly what you thought it would be, which is a straight up Upside Down Whopper, available in select locations Friday, June 21.

They didn’t build it with the Whopper ingredients stacked in a crazy order. They didn’t try to get you with any mind tricks, or freaky Whopper illusions. It’s literally just a regular Whopper, but flipped on its head, which you can do on your own with any Whopper.


I guess the intrigue comes from the Stranger Things-labeled wrapper that covers the Whopper, along with Stranger Things print on the drink cups, seeing how Coca-Cola is in on this collab.

They’ve also temporarily changed their name to “Stranger King” on all their social media platforms, which is at least strong commitment to the promotion.

The Upside Down Whopper will technically only be available at 11 Burger King locations across the country, but if you’re savvy enough, you can probably figure out how to make one on your own. For die-hard fans, the draw is trying to snag some Stranger Things/BK merch, like shirts, pins and and crowns.

If you want to celebrate the new season with burgers and merch, head to one of the Burger King locations below.

Upside Down Whopper Locations:
10494 West Sample Road, Coral Springs, FL
25560 Kingsland Blvd, Katy, TX
128 Tremont Street, Boston, MA
415 Bullsboro Drive, Newnan, GA
2400 Caster Avenue, Philadelphia, PA
2009 Coit Road, Plano, TX
2840 West North Avenue, Chicago, IL
35 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA
4918 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA
327 West 42nd Street, New York, NY
1437 West Patapsco Avenue, Baltimore, MD

Wendy’s Spicy Nuggets Are Returning Thanks To Chance The Rapper

The random disappearance of Wendy’s spicy chicken nuggets was one of the more tragic moments in fast food history.

The nuggets were a clear fan favorite, and even Chance The Rapper felt the pain when they were discontinued.

Chance tweeted out Saturday, “Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today.”

Apparently Wendy’s is very much aware of our sentiments toward the spicy nuggets, and responded to Chance’s tweet, saying, “Y’all keep asking, so here’s your chance. The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet (this one right here) to 2 Million likes, they will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK.
Let’s freakin’ do this!”

Yes, the power was put in our hands, and with one 2 million likes achieved on the weekend tweet, Wendy’s will bring back its spicy nuggets.

Apparently, this whole time, all we needed was Chance The Rapper to speak up on the issue.

That two million “like” mark actually positioned Wendy’s in the top 5 all-time, with the likes of Barack Obama, Ariana Grande, and Ellen Degeneres, who famously tweeted out a superstar-filled selfie at the Oscars, to the tune of 2.3 million likes.

At least on Twitter, Wendy’s has promised their return. Now we just have to wait for an official date and time.

We did it, y’all. Good job. And thanks, Chance.

It’s Your Lucky Day, McDonald’s Has Brought Back The Shamrock Shake

With St. Patrick’s Day coming closer, McDonald’s blessed the world by bringing back their Shamrock Shake on Feb. 21.

The shake hasn’t changed too much since it’s 1970 debut, still rocking the green hue and minty flavor we’ve come to love.

Last year, McDonald’s tried to shake things up by offering up different variations of the beverage, like the Chocolate Shamrock Shake, the Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappé, the Shamrock Mocha and the Shamrock Hot Chocolate.

Thankfully, the fast food giant didn’t inundate the classic with the unnecessary additions and let the Shamrock Shake shine on its own.

Obviously, this is a limited time release, and while it probably isn’t too hard to recreate on your own, any Instagram aesthetic is immediately beautified with the presence of this mint-green delicacy.

While many on Twitter are quick to push their hatred of the shake, Dixon Police comes through with the truth.


It’s the police. Listen to the police. Get a Shamrock Shake and stop being a Carl.

You’ve Probably Been Removing Eggs From the Carton Wrong Your Whole Life

You’ve probably never thought about it, but you have your own particular way of removing eggs from the carton, and it’s probably different than many others’.

You can remove them from left to right, right to left, hell, you can even start from the center and make your way to the edges.

Apparently the Twittersphere became conscious of this dilemma, and promptly started a debate of what the correct way to remove eggs is.

A troll by the name of Brian Faughnan posed the question, “Hey OCD folks. Do you empty the egg carton right to left, or left to right?”

With that tweet, Faughnan sparked a heated debate that you probably didn’t even know needed to be debated.

The OCD is real, and who would have thought this conversation would continue on for 400 comments. There are so many different methods, and reading through them all might cause your head to explode, or question your whole morning routine.

This has actually been mathematically addressed before, though, as YouTube channel Mind Your Decisions made a video showing what they believe to be the best methods.

They gave several suggestions, starting with an even distribution at the corners, and making your way toward the middle, and keeping the carton balanced.

It may or may not drive you nuts, but the video’s next method suggests going from left to right.

Their last suggestion will probably piss you off, but it really balances the center of gravity. The video shows kind of a diagonal / staggered approach that keeps the weight distributed evenly.

That might be the most symetrical method, but also the one that could very well destroy your mental well being.

Regardless of how you remove your eggs, just don’t drop them, and make sure you get a good scramble out of it.

Burger King Tried Being Cute On Twitter And Wendy’s Destroyed Them

Wendy’s is known for savage comebacks on Twitter, and its latest victim is Burger King., who was just doing its due diligence by responding to a fan.

It almost felt like Burger King was being set up by this Twitter user, as she complimented them, but threw shade at Wendy’s at the same time:

Burger King bit, and responded with, “Treat her like the princess she deserves to be.”

As soon as Wendy’s saw the tweet, they went along with the royal theme, saying, “If you’re looking for a princess, you might want to let it go. Not interested in the frozen beef kingdom.”

It was almost like they had this Frozen pun in their back pocket, just waiting for Burger King to pop off.

Everything about the tweet was perfect, and in this fast food game of thrones, Wendy’s now sits atop.

This Guy’s Candy Cane Pizza Pissed Off DiGiorno And The Entire Internet

Twitter is infested with some of the worst food combinations, like strawberry-topped pizza and Pop-Tart cold cheese sandwiches. Now we can add a holiday treat to the list, as someone thought it was a good idea to make a candy cane pizza.

David Sanchez of Chicago, Illinois probably thought this pizza was a viral sensation waiting to happen, and it kind of worked, as he successfully disgusted anyone who saw this abomination.

The pizza consisted of pizza sauce, shredded cheese, candy canes, Santa candy, all on top of a DiGiorno crust.

It didn’t take long for the responses and GIFs to start rolling in, and they were priceless:

Shortly after Sanchez tweeted out his candy-based pizza, DiGiorno made it very clear that they did not cosign this Christmas disaster, with a swift response of “NO NO NO.”

DiGiorno didn’t stop there, as they could not let go of this atrocious pizza that was sweeping through Twitter, and asked that these tragic pizza experiments end.

That’s what happens when you have the power to easily create. DiGiorno recklessly gave out this kind of power, now they have to live with the consequences.
