…Doritos use quality packaging?

Doritos

A cargo container with thousands of bags of Doritos inside fell off a container ship and broke apart off the coast of North Carolina, spilling the bags onto the beach where scavengers were able to collect and enjoy the chips due to their airtight packaging. Quality packaging: a source of pride at the Doritos factory.

…Subway serves bison?

Subway Prank

Subway touts its restaurant as an easy way to eat fresh, but I’d be willing to bet that the bison that goes into their bison noodle soup has been sitting in a freezer for quite some time before finding its way into the soup de jure. It’s not like bison just roam the streets, looking to end their lives as a local Subway soup, I’m sure they have to be imported from somewhere. Actually, Subway doesn’t serve a bison noodle soup, but don’t tell that to the customers who fell victim to this slightly amusing prank. By copying the soup name card that Subway uses to advertise their soups and then creating a new and slightly modified version, one prankster was able to offer such delights as sunset minestrone, fiesta queso con queso, and cream of regret to hungry customers. The site documenting this Subway switcheroo also encourages other pranksters to follow suit with a template that can be used to create a unique concoction that is sure to surprise many a hungry customer. Musty mushroom anyone?

…You lose the game?

The Game game is a “social phenomenon and an anti-memory game, the object of which is to forget its existence”. It’s spread by word of mouth, and there are only a few basic rules:

  1. Knowledge of The Game is the only thing required to play it.
  2. Thinking of The Game causes a player to lose.
  3. A losing player must announce the loss.

There’s no end to the game, and players can lose repeatedly; the only object is to lose less than your opponents. There are a variety of strategies that can be used to maximize your opponents’ losses while minimizing your own, so players should be creative. Oh, and by reading this story, you lose The Game (go ahead, announce your loss, I had to to write this story).
