For some reason, Felipe doesn’t like Tesco Mobile. We don’t know why, but it actually turns him off if a gal uses it. Maybe they just have the best prices, Felipe. We all have some random hangups about brands, so we aren’t going to throw too many stones, but Tesco Mobile themselves was ready with a response.
Their comeback was so rough we have to imagine that Felipe spent the rest of the day lying on his bed, staring at the ceiling. Hopefully, he took the lesson he just learned and used it to become a better person.
Consider Him Well-Done
Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astronomer and scientist that is known in two ways. He's either a smart, witty hero for science, or he's an annoying pedant who sucks all the joy out of everything he sees, touches, or mentions. Well, “Steak-umm” is firmly in the second camp.
After one too many Tweets from Tyson about how pointless New Year's Day is, or mindless facts that are supposedly “mind-blowing,” they gave Tyson a piece of their mind. Learning that a couple of words can be rearranged to spell some other words might be noteworthy, but mind-blowing? Not exactly.
When Networks Fight
It seems almost mean to drag “The Big Bang Theory” into this fight. The show might be a bit lowest-common-denominator, but it can still be funny. And yet, it's caught between BBC Three and E4 on Twitter during Easter.
BBC Three cast some shade on E4 for showing boring episodes on a sleeping Sunday afternoon. It seems like BBC Three should have made sure they were showing anything at all, but E4 was happy enough to point that fact out. Hard to be more boring than a blank screen. We'd love to see if this beef has expanded beyond this.
That's a Good Point, Honestly
This little bit of brand-against-brand beef got started when Old Spice questioned Taco Bell's fire sauce. No, that sauce isn't actually made with fire, because...that's not how sauces work. The Bell was quick with a comeback, pointing out that Old Spice probably doesn't use old spices in their products. Also true, though it's a lot closer to the truth.
Nowadays deodorants and body sprays are chemicals, but back in the day, they might have actually used spices. At least Old Spice makes people smell good, which is not the kind of thing Taco Bell can brag about.
The Harvest Has Been Good This Year
Wendy's has one of the hottest accounts Twitter's ever seen, with sharp shots at detractors and tight Tweets pumping their products. Anybody who comes at them had better bring their best, which Cooper Franklin seemed to have forgotten.
He thinks that Wendy's square burgers seem too artificial, and we bet it didn't take any time at all for the social media geniuses to clap back. Every single hamburger patty is formed artificially. You could get a patty in the shape of anything, up to and including things like this tweet, so we can swallow it just like Cooper Franklin did.
