We had these Americans in at the Newsroom a wee while ago and they were called #justiceforbradswife. They even had a T-shirt to go with their team name:
I asked them what this was about. I probably did in a Tom Selleck accent with extra-septic emphasis like:
“Hey buddy, what the heeeeyelll is that about? Pardner? Yee hah!”
They wouldn’t explain but said to look online and that I would see a hilarious story. So here I am, several months later, finally getting round to my investigation.
- Some guy’s wife got sacked at a restaurant chain in the US.
- husband goes mental about it on the internet.
- Internet responds by creating giant hashtag war on the chain.
Who knows what happened in the end? I ran out of giving-a-fuck pretty quickly.
The American in the Newsroom promised hilarity but I think in all the links I have found in the last ten minutes or so I have not ACTUALLY laughed. It’s not really that funny. Someone gote
But then, I am now forty-five years old. When you’re 45 you still laugh at people falling down escalators, but very little else. Seen it all before
