Really?

Well, that was stupid.

Man, the Onion is on a roll lately. Anyone seen Sex House?
 
2012-08-14 08:19:36 AM
wow, some people have much harder lives then i ever imagined. Why isn't there a hero tag?!
 
2012-08-14 08:20:51 AM
What just happened here, did the consumerist just get trolled?

This policy of "content at any price" must end. Just close your MBPs and take a nap instead, kids.

I was hoping that was going to be funny. :(
 
2012-08-14 08:23:30 AM
How about just not going to The Olive Garden?
 
2012-08-14 08:23:36 AM
That was probably a lot funnier in thought than in actual practice.
 
2012-08-14 08:25:42 AM
So much potential...

...so little funny.
 
2012-08-14 08:28:35 AM
The Onion, home of "That was funnier in my head."
 
2012-08-14 08:29:02 AM
I've never been in the mood for Olive Garden....until now.
 
2012-08-14 08:30:05 AM
*sigh* Serves me right. I spend minutes thinking of reasonable and well-thought Fark headlines every day, and this shiat gets greenlit.

Guess I'll go look at Katy Perry's ass some more.

It would be nice to have this much time to invest in something so trivial. Not that most of us would do that, but it would be nice to have this kind of time.

Grab a breadstick and engage in a fencing contest with bread offerer. "Aha! You have fallen for my trap and now I shall spirng it! Enguard! You have destroyed your last diet, scoundrel! My dear mother came here on for the soup and you foisted - foisted your delicios bread upon here. Now she has her own zip code! When she sits around the house, she sits around the house! NASA uses her to study orbit! Now your uppence shall come! Stab, parry thrust!"

You will not be offered another breadstick.

The bread sticks can be good or piss poor, seems to be no in between. If you get them relatively fresh out of the oven they'll be good, but left to sit and cool down they quickly get unpleasant to eat.

The Raspberry Peach Bellini Tea is one of the main reasons I go there occasionally. Asking for a extra bellini syrup makes it perfect. You can also ask the waiter for a bottle of the syrup and they sell them for around $7. Mixes great with teas, plain water, and very much so certain alcohols.

"Soup, Salad, Bread sticks" is cheap enough during the lunch hours that it barely dents the wallet /shrug. It isn't fine dining, and most of the entrees are lacking but the place has a few decent points.
 
2012-08-14 08:41:45 AM
There should be some kind of Poe's Law for stories like this. To let those unsure know that this was an attempt to be funny and not just some hipster d-bag in his retro target tshirt making what he feels is a legit stand against a perceived injustice. Being that it's at the consumerist doesn't help the funny, not whiny, cause.

so was the consumerist trolled by the onion or are they just wholesale copying shiat now.
 
2012-08-14 09:29:45 AM
I'm guessing the real joke here is that The Consumerist linked to this video as if it were worth anyone's time. You know, the way they always take unimportant situations and blow them out of proportion.

I love The Onion, but it's miss a lot more than hit these days, especially when video production is involved.
