This is a new weekly feature giving you the best of what’s good and what’s bad out there in the snarkiverse. This content is explored more in-depth on our weekly radio show, Snarky Faith, so you should check that out too. With out further adieu… here’s your rundown this week of the good, bad and ugly of the interwebs. Enjoy!
• McDonald’s apparently wanted to give you options for the ways you got diabetes. They’re now testing out different sizes of the Big Mac. Way to Make America Fat Again! Buda bump ba ba! [Ad Age]
• Feeling a little crazy living while living in Trump’s bizarro world? Like maybe you lost your mind? Well, a truck driver in Indiana lost his marbles… all 38,000 pounds of them. His loss is our snarky gain. If your day is bad, just know that his was much worse. [Huff Post]
• Port-a-potty conspiracy at the inauguration? Apparently, the D.C. septic provider, Don’s Johns, found his toilet signage taped over during last week’s event. Can’t the Don, take a joke? Or was this more of a metaphor for the next four years? Either way, it’s always good to find a reason to laugh while the world is going down the crapper. [CNN]
• Need some escapism? Sure, we all do. Well, Vimeo is premiering several Sundance Film Festival shorts over on their platform. [Vimeo]
• British comedian, Jonathan Pie, has a beautiful and NSFW way he articulates what many of us are thinking about the Trump inauguration speech and the state of the world. Tragedy, meet comedy. Did I mention that it’s NSFW?
• If you can push past the accent, Slovenian psychoanalytic philosopher, Slavoj Žižek, has some intriguing ideas about the 2016 election and paints a hopeful future… just not in the way you think.
• At least the Dutch have a warm welcome for our new President… well sort of. Or to put it in their own words, “Because we realize it’s better for us to get along, we decided to introduce our tiny country to him. In a way that will probably appeal to him the most.” Thank you, Netherlands!
