If you were in school in the nineties, you’re probably familiar with the Oregon Trail video games, which has players finding their way across the prairies as a settler. It was done to increase knowledge of the era and what settlers had to go through, and a few running jokes have sprung up, including members of your family getting sick with dysentery.
Thankfully, Twitter user “Jason Cirillo” made it without getting sick thanks to JetBlue Airways, and JetBlue responded in kind, mentioning their snacks. They don’t carry much buffalo, though. It was all in good fun.
If McDonald's Can Do It...
Yeah, breakfast food. Lots of places sell it because it's simple and most people like it. And while Taco Bell might not have the best reputation in terms of food quality, they can probably figure it out. When Taco Bell made the announcement they were going to slide in McDonald's market space, it was on.
But the golden arches weren't fazed – they saw it as the Bell looking up to the kings of the fast-food court. The clown has been the leader in breakfast food for a long time, but competition is always a good thing for customers.
There Are Plenty of Hiding Spots
A conversation bloomed between everyone's favorite chocolate cookies and a theater chain. Why? Well, it's because Oreo got things started with a tweet that talked about good ways to sneak their cookies into movie theaters. AMC got involved, promising to root out any hidden packages of cookies upon a ticket-buying customer.
Oreo shot back, and the conversation continued from there. AMC was game, but we think the cookies have the advantage here – there are just too many places to hide them, and no theater worker is going to be that nosy.
A Twitter user named “Marty Lawrence” tried to get himself some cod from his local Sainsbury's, but he was out of luck. Sainsbury's asked a question back to get more information and included a quick fish pun as a way to have some fun. Marty responded, slipping in his own pun, and things grew from there.
The tweets started to have less and less useful information about the store and started to focus more and more on puns, which is fine by us.
The Best Food Six Days a Week
Chick-fil-A is famous for its fine-tasting chicken products and its incredible customer service. They're also famous for being closed on Sundays as a company-wide rule. They mentioned this would be the case even on Super Bowl Sunday, and Burger King jumped onto the tweet to reassure customers they would be open.
The chicken had a golden opportunity to hit Burger King hard. The King might be a market leader in the fast-food space, but Chick-fil-A is an up-and-comer that is going to be hard to ignore. Make the choice: a regular old hamburger, or a perfectly done chicken sandwich?
