Wendy's Just Destroyed McDonald's After Their Huge Black Friday Tweet Fail

It’s always a little embarrassing when huge social media accounts don’t proofread their posts, like this copy and paste gaffe from Scott Disick…

For billion dollar corporations the stakes are much higher. Every notable event, or trending holiday, is a chance to promote your product. Naturally, McDonald’s was all set to tweet out a Black Friday post.

Whoever’s handling their social media was on top of scheduling the tweets, however, they had a bit of a snafu when it came to posting the actual tweet itself.

That’s right: McDonald’s posted this embarrassing mistake, but the burger chain seems to be taking the whole thing in stride. Look at this little gem they followed up with:

It wasn’t enough to stop the internet roast machine from getting on McDonald’s case, however.

People guessed what was going through the Mickey D’s social media team’s heads after the accidental post.

While others pointed out that the brand’s exposure as a result of the mix-up might ultimately benefit them.

Then the worst possible thing happened to McDonald’s. Social media savage, Wendy’s, of course, responded to the glaring mistake.

And they didn’t hold back.

Pornhub Took A Huge Traffic Hit During The 'Game Of Thrones' Premiere

Game of Thrones took over the airwaves on Sunday, and also destroyed everyone’s timelines with jokes and complaints about Ed Sheeran. Yes, the long anticipated season 7 premiere was finally here and you know what that means: time to take a brief break from masturbating.

The Independent reports that popular pornography site Pornhub shared their statistics from the hour on Sunday night that HBO was airing GoT. They found that during that time period, traffic to Pornhub dipped by 4.5 percent, saying that shows a “considerable change in visitors as Sunday night is one of the most popular times for people to visit Pornhub.”

I know what you’re thinking. That’s not such a huge dip. But when you actually look at the graph, it’s pretty hilarious:

The question is, are people so in love with Game of Thrones that they’re willing to stop pleasuring themselves for an hour to enjoy it, or are they just finding their pleasure…elsewhere?

When season 6 premiered, Pornhub says they had a drop as well, but only by 4.1 percent. People have gotten even more excited for this show than ever before, perhaps even too excited in ways we don’t want to contemplate. But the site says their biggest dip ever was during the finale of season 6, when they experienced a 5.2 percent traffic dip. People always get worked up when you leave them wanting more.

Pornhub seems more amused by the loss of customers than angry, as does everybody else.

And it’s not the first time someone has made the connection that they’re more or less the same thing:

We’ll see whether porn or Jon Snow can keep our attention longer this season.

Woman's Frustrated Facebook Post Shows A Huge Problem With Clothing Sizes

Finding clothes to fit my ample hips, as a man, is a very trying endeavor. I don’t know why genetics gave me this issue, or why I grew up undervaluing the importance of having well-developed enough hamstrings to make strengthening my lower body even easier when I’m holder but here we are. I’ve got an on and off rickety left leg and hips that are much too wide.

But as bad as my clothing woes are, I know they pale in comparison to what women face on a regular basis while shopping for clothes.

A problem that’s only compounded by a slew of body image issues perpetuated by media and advertising at large. But this woman discovered that on top of all these body image issues, clothing manufacturers have done something that really mess women up.

And that’s a complete lack of size consistency.

Deena Shoemaker wrote about the “bone to pick” she has with designers and clothes manufacturers who decide to constantly change what a size “4” or “12” is, depending on the garment or who made the clothes.

No I’m not selling my pants; I’ve just got a bone to pick.

I’ve worked with teen & pre-teen girls as a leader and counselor in various places for the last 6 years. I’ve listened to countless girls tell me about their new diets and weight loss fads. I’ve have girls sob in my arms and ask me, “if I were skinnier, would he have stayed?” I’ve counseled girls who were skipping meals. I’ve caught some throwing up everything they’ve just eaten.

But as I was going through my clothes tonight I started to notice how dramatically different the size of all my pants were. And I have a real problem with the fact that my size 5 pants fit me THE EXACT SAME WAY that my size 12 pants do.

She says that the lack of consistency is making people think they’re rapidly losing or gaining weight and isn’t helping them with their personal body goals.

Let me explain why I’m not happy, America. You photoshop models and actresses and slap them on the front of beauty magazines. At this point it’s a pretty universally known truth that you’re lying to us and those aren’t accurate portrayals of the human body. I can prove it to girls pretty easily by simply showing them how photoshop works.

But when you resize a girl’s pants from a 9 to a 16 and label it “plus size,” how am I supposed to fight that? Photo manipulation is one thing but how do you expect me to convince her that the number printed inside her clothes is a lie too? How do you expect me to convince her that she doesn’t need to skip dinner for the next month because her pant size didn’t *actually* go up by seven digits?

STOP telling my girls that a size 4 is the “ideal body size” and the “epitome of beauty” if you’re going to change a size 4 into an 8 or a 12 or whatever number you feel like on any given day.

And to you; my dear beautiful girls, my size 2 girls or my size 18 girls, your size doesn’t determine your beauty; your life does. The size printed inside your clothes is subjective to the fashion industry’s personal taste and it fluctuates rapidly. Stop believing the social normatives about who and what you should be.

You are lovely and you are loved.
Just exactly the way you are.

She makes a good point, should clothing sizes be an industry standard?
