Burger King Will Give You a Free Whopper If You Get Fired . . . But You Need to Humiliate Yourself on Social Media

If you get fired, I’m not sure that broadcasting to the world that you’ll sell yourself out for a $3 sandwich is the best way to start getting leads for your next job.  But what do I know?

Burger King is running a new promotion where you can get a FREE Whopper if you get FIRED.  But . . . to prove you got fired, you have to go onto LinkedIn and post a public message saying, “I got fired.  I want a free Whopper.  #whopperseverance.”

The first 2,500 people who do that will get a gift card sent to them for a free Whopper.  And considering how your professional contacts will probably view that posting, hopefully BK will throw in a job application too.

The 15 Best Responses to the Twitter Hashtag: “What If Football Didn’t Exist?”

 Football is such an important part of American life, it’s hard to imagine a world where it never existed.  But some people are trying to do that now . . . with HI-larious results.

For some reason, the hashtag ‘#IfFootballDidntExist‘ started trending on social media yesterday.  And here are 15 highlights:

1.  “Men would have to talk to their wives and girlfriends in the winter.”

2.  “We wouldn’t get to witness a man in tight pants doing a dance.”

3.  “Most men in America would spend their Sundays at IKEA looking at furniture.”

4.  “Friday Night Lights would just be me staring upwards in the Walmart parking lot.”

5.  “A lot of chickens would still have their wings.”

6.  “Marching band would be the coolest activity in high school.”  Although, let’s be honest, that STILL wouldn’t be true.  There were a LOT of nerds sharing that fantasy though.  Another Tweeted, quote, “The debate team would have cheerleaders.”

7.  “Being under center would be a sexual position.”

8.  “Very few of us would know what Janet Jackson’s [breasts] look like.”

9.  “Would Americans still call soccer . . . ‘soccer’?”

10.  “Madden Volleyball 2018 would be on my Christmas list.”

11.  “Joe Montana would sound like a porn name.”

12.  “I wouldn’t be wearing jockstraps at the age of 40.”

13.  “Thanksgiving would be even more awkward.”

14.  “I’d probably see a lot less patients with concussions.”

15.  And perhaps most importantly, Marcia Brady wouldn’t have gotten beaned in the face with a football RIGHT before her big date with Doug!!!  And remember, Marcia broke her date with Charley for Doug, because he was a FOOTBALL STAR.

So if football didn’t exist, Marcia probably would have gone on that date with Charley . . . and who knows how far Charley would have gotten?  Poor Charley.
