No update from Drew again?

No probs. He probably buying beer with all the ad revenue us -liters provide. Not that I blame him.

I don't like the fact that the "FOR ME TO GROUPON" headline made HOTW. It's clearly a copy of a HoTW from a few months ago about how social discount sites have a nice business model, FOR ME TO GROUPON. I'd find a link to it, but I'm lazy and such.

And furthermore, it's an obvious rip off of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and futhermore!

Love the "Five Guys" headline.

It's a fine reference, but it's one that should really only be reckognized for its greatness once. Giving HotW status to two such occurences really just opens the floodgates for it to become a meme, and not a very good one. It would become tiresome if every article about Groupon has a headline that ends with FOR ME TO GROUPON.

If someone doesn't have anything better to do, could they please explain the "I've got this headline"?

Thanks awfully.

/I believe Blagovich was heard on wiretaps stating "I've got this Senate seat to appoint, it's farking golden, and I'm not going to give it up for nothing" - Obama's vacated seat when he went for/won the presidency, and Blago's attempt to use his ability to appoint someone to that seat for political favors and/or cash.


//or you could just read some farking news once in a while...

Anyone have a status update on the copyright infringement lawsuit? No news is good news I guess, but I haven't heard anything about it in a while.

I asked Drew about it the other day and he said there wasn't an update.
