CiCi’s Pizza – Ghetto Pizza, Ghetto Coupons

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

I live near a big city in Mexico Texas.  One of the benefits is all the variety of restaurants to go and be an ‘MURICAN! by eating more than I should.  This especially holds true with the variety of all you can eat buffet’s in town!  Chinese, Pizza, Mongolian, Salad, General!  Any kind of food you can pretty much find!   Read more…

McDonald’s – Their Fail is My Win

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

On the way to work this evening I swung through the nearby McDonald’s to get my fat $1 burger’s on.  I do this from time to time. It’s no secret.  And on occasion I get crappy service from these sorts of establishments.  This is obviously going to be about ponies instead of that.   Read more…

McDonald’s – Any Lane! Any Time!

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comments (5)  |  Add Comment

The other day I decided my high blood pressure, and high BMI (That’s body mass index for you idiots out there) needed some love.  So I hit up one of my 1,145,532.7 local McDonald’s to get some cheeseburgers.  As I don’t like dealing with humans, or getting out of my car (What? Someone whose technically overweight doesn’t want to get out of his car? BIG FUCKING SHOCK THERE!!!), I hit up the drive thru.  Read more…

Driving Like An Asshole – Two Can Play That Game!

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

Look, I know sometimes people are running late to an appointment, or have a once of a lifetime booty call with their 3rd cousin (I live in the South, I won’t judge).  This may cause you to not use the best judgment and feel the need to speed down the freeway.  Fine. Whatever. I see that every day.  But pay attention, just because you want to speed, change lanes quickly and recklessly, doesn’t mean I’m going to do the same to help you out.  What I will do is much more fun though (For me at least).  Read more…

Gizmodo.com Censoring – You’re Doing It Wrong

I was looking at the random internet/geeky type blogs I read, one of them being Gizmodo.com. While I was looking over their articles, I saw the following:  Read more…

Oklahoma – Fuck Oklahoma!

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comments (3)  |  Add Comment

Recently I had the pleasure of having a vacation. This particular vacation involved a bit of driving through multiple states, and seeing multiple things.  During this trip I got to go through Oklahoma. After driving through it twice, I’ve decided it is now my most hated state in the United States of America.  Congrats Oklahoma, you managed to knock Texas down to #2 on my list! Read more…

Sonic – Where Happy Hour Specials Really Aren’t

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comment (1)  |  Add Comment

Near where I live, there are quite a few Sonic Drive In’s.  It’s basically your pricier Mcd’s or Burger King, but there is no inside seating.  If you’ve never heard of it, you can google it yourself. I’m not going to explain it.

So sometime ago (Back when I wasn’t updating my blog), I stopped by there to continue my quest toward heart disease.  When I noticed they have ‘Happy Hour Specials!” As seen below:  Read more…

Dear Woot

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comments (2)  |  Add Comment

Find below a ‘letter’ I wrote, and posted on the Woot.com community site.

Some background info for those who don’t know.  Woot.com is THE original daily deal website.  They were the first site to offer one item at the start of the day, and that’s all they had to sell until the day ended.  If it sold out before the end of the day, then nothing. You’d still have to wait for the next day to see the next deal.  They had hilarious product descriptions, and generally a fun site to be a member of.  There is other things you should probably know about them, but you can research it more on your own time.

The main thing to know is that in June of 2010, they were purchased by Amazon.  Over time, as with most companies that are bought by a larger corporation, Woot changed (Fun things stopped happening, forced use of social media, site layout completely ruined, and one of my favorite products completely changed).  Some might say it’s for the better, but me, and quite a few others, think it is for the worst.

It was with a great sadness that I decided that I am basically done with Woot, and am not a huge fan anymore.  So I wrote the following letter: Read more…

Pickup Trucks – Homosexual Exhaust

Author: Joel The Great  |  Category: Rants  |  Comments Off  |  Add Comment

I spend a decent part of my day commuting through a rather populated city.  This means while trying to not get killed by all the tailgating, non-blinker using, cut you off even if you’re their mother idiots out there, I get to see all kinds of vehicles.  I get to see new models, old models, ones that have been abused through out life, ones that have been pampered.  And then there are those that people actively decided to change in some way. I’ve covered something like that with cars before.   But this…this is something new!   Read more…
