Prior to Wendy's decision to up their social media game, you probably never would've equated savage Twitter roasts with fast food before.
But that all changed when the redhead-repping burger joint went all-in on insult comedy on Twitter.
Leaving us with some of the best social media roasts of all time. You figure some people would know better than to come after them, but this guy learned the hard way that you don't attack greatness and walk away unscathed.
You should change your name to FaZe so you could get more viewers.— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 4, 2018
They're not afraid to roast other brands, too.
And on National Roast Day, people asked to be brutalized by the Wendy's social media team.
A decision many people ended up regretting.
Looks like the Diet Coke version of Seth MacFarlane hanging out with the woman with the largest collection of throw pillows featuring "funny" wine quotes.— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 4, 2018
I mean, they were asking for it.
When you try flexin in the selfie but remember you can barely lift the watch on your wrist— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 4, 2018
No one was safe, not even people with careers in TV.
You're on like 15 different shows and we still had to google you.— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 4, 2018
Know a couple people at the National Enquirer if you're looking for a more reputable news source to work for.— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 4, 2018
Or people with unfortunate haircuts.
Are you as let down as you were when the barber spun you around to the mirror after that haircut?— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 4, 2018
Some hit a little too close to home.
Was this taken before or after mom called you upstairs for dinner?— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 4, 2018
We can't forget the classics though, like the kid who forgot that refrigerators existed.
Sorry to hear you think that! But you're wrong, we've only ever used fresh beef since we were founded in 1969.— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 2, 2017
You don't have to bring them into this just because you forgot refrigerators existed for a second there.— Wendy's (@Wendys) January 2, 2017
Let's also not forget about the time Wendy's wanted nothing to do with this guy's lame mixtape.
They've been taking other brands to task for a while though.
Remember Burger King tried to come for the crown?
Wendy's isn't always savage, though.
Their writers prove they can still be witty without destroying someone online.
But it's always amazing when they do.
Because come on, there's no fast food account that does it better.
And who could forget when they capitalized on this McDisaster.
Or when Carl's Jr. tried joining the fray?
I, for one, am looking forward to a new year of savage roasts and insults from Wendy's Twitter. We don't deserve them.
If you were like pretty much everyone in the world, you were probably let down by the fact that Croatia didn't have their storybook ending in taking home first place in the 2018 World Cup. Sure, France had an amazing team and all that, and the contest's youngest MVP player, Mbappé, even donated all of his winnings from the tournament to charity—so I guess it's hard to be too upset with the competition's end result.
And even though everyone played their hearts out (except Egypt, I mean, they went again Saudi Arabia and the results were just embarrassing), there was a clear winner this World Cup and it actually wasn't even any of the teams. S
ure there's a first, second, and third place result, but all of those accomplishments pale in comparison to the wonderful memes that sprung up as a result of this glorious tournament.
More than a few were thanks to Brazil's Neymar.
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
