Carl's Jr is a Stupid Company

Apparently, there's no fun allowed anywhere, and whoever is running things at Carl's Jr. is an idiot:

Fast food restaurant chain Carl's Jr. is getting in on the hype for Steven Spielberg's latest movie, Ready Player One.

On Sunday, Carl's Jr. tweeted that it would be changing the name of its charbroiled sliders to "SpielBurgers," in honor of the director and his upcoming film. "Spielberg hasn’t signed off yet, but we assume he’s cool with it," the company wrote.

A Carl's Jr. representative on Tuesday told The Hollywood Reporter, "SpielBurgers are not a menu item at Carl’s Jr. locations. This was a social stunt from the brand to try and get the attention of Spielberg and his team to celebrate the launch of Ready Player One."

You don't go public with something like this unless you have a marketing deal in place. Did they think they were going to shame Steven Spielberg into doing something like this?

Morons.

How Did Larry Flynt End Up Being the Voice of Reason?

Larry Flynt survived 2016 in order to shame the American media:

Larry Flynt, the Hustler publisher and First Amendment advocate, says the media needs to do a better job covering President-elect Donald Trump.

“Hold him accountable at all times,” Flynt told us. “He makes the press look like amateurs in the way he tweets and tells half-truths and lies, and he gets away with it.”

Flynt says that shows like “Meet the Press” are “the worst culprits,” and continued, “You can’t bury your head in the sand, you have to fight back . . . If Trump could, he would like to put restrictions on the First Amendment. That’s what happens any time you give absolute power to anyone. The first thing to go is the free press and then individual freedoms go. You have to fight for it.”

Is there anything Flynt is wrong about?

No! Of course not! He has a very simple take on the media and on the new division pundits that have not been held even remotely accountable for the disaster that was the 2016 presidential election. He's even reminding us that freedom of the press is about to become a distant memory very shortly because we don't appreciate what we have. A lot of people fought hard in 2016, but exactly the right number of people in a few states decided that freedom isn't as important as having a kleptocratic banana republic installed as the next American government.

How many of them were fired because they got it wrong?

None of them!

And here we are, just a few days into 2017, and Larry Flynt is the voice of reason. Amazing.
