McDonald’s adds two chicken sandwiches to its breakfast menu



The Chicken Wars continue into 2020.

McDonald’s announced today that it’s adding two new chicken sandwiches to its breakfast menu nationwide for a limited time: Chicken McGriddles® and the McChicken Biscuit.

“With the nationwide launch of the Chicken McGriddles and McChicken Biscuit sandwiches, we’re giving our customers more of what they crave: mouthwatering chicken and breakfast options,” said Linda VanGosen, Vice President of Menu Innovation. “McDonald’s is committed to remaining a leader in the quick-service breakfast category through our delicious offerings, consistent menu innovation, and a faster Drive-Thru experience.”

The Golden Arches is not the only chain adding chicken to its breakfast menu. Wendy’s is trying to get back into the breakfast game nationwide and announced a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit and Maple Bacon Chicken Croissant to its own menu.


ONTD, what’s for breakfast this morning?

When We Were Vikings

Sometimes life isn’t as simple as heroes and villains.

For Zelda, a twenty-one-year-old Viking enthusiast who lives with her older brother, Gert, life is best lived with some basic rules:

1. A smile means “thank you for doing something small that I liked.”
2. Fist bumps and dabs = respect.
3. Strange people are not appreciated in her home.
4. Tomatoes must go in the middle of the sandwich and not get the bread wet.
5. Sometimes the most important things don’t fit on lists.

But when Zelda finds out that Gert has resorted to some questionable—and dangerous—methods to make enough money to keep them afloat, Zelda decides to launch her own quest. Her mission: to be legendary. It isn’t long before Zelda finds herself in a battle that tests the reach of her heroism, her love for her brother, and the depth of her Viking strength.

2020 ONTD Film Critic Society Awards - Nominations Post


*The above image was taken from Morgan90's previous awards posts, I don't know how to use photoshop or whatever, so credit to them*


How this will work:
I'll comment with the categories in the subject line, you reply to the comment with your nomination. If you agree with someone’s nomination then +1 or whatever; you can +1 as many times as you want within a certain category. You can nominate the same movie in multiple categories - for example, say you nominate a Foreign Language Film you can also nominate it for Drama/Comedy/whatever. I'll add all the shit up, make another post with the full list of nominees and then ya'll vote for the winners. Cool? Cool, bye.

If ONTD reads, wait until I've commented with all the categories before you start nominating.

In order to get nominated, a film has to have 3 or more +1's. I'll try to have at least 5 in a category, but if there aren't enough films nominated then it'll have less than 5 and if there are ties then there will be more than 5.

Americans preferred libraries over movies, sports or concerts in 2019



Americans took an average of 10.5 trips to the library in 2019 – more than any other leisure activity, according to a new Gallup Poll. Participants were asked how many times last year they did certain activities such as going to a movie, sporting event, live music or theater event, historic park, museum, casino, theme park or zoo. Libraries, which are free, took first place. Trips to the movies came in second, with an average of 5.3 trips in the last year.

People between the ages 18-29 visit the library more often than any other age groups. The study suggests this is probably due to the fact that people in college frequent the library to study.

According to the poll, Men and woman reported doing most of activities at about the same rate. However, women report going to the library twice as frequently as men. Men were more likely than women to visit casinos, attend sporting events and visit national or historical parks.

See a more detailed breakdown of the results at the source.

After several months of drama, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's divorce has been finalized. They apparently had a prenup, so dividing their property and assets was fairly simple.

The couple separated in August 2019 and Hemsworth filed for divorce shortly after, citing irreconcilable differences. They were together for more than 10 years, but lasted less than one year of marriage.

Miley is now fake dating dating Cody Simpson and Liam is dating some model.

WaPo in Turmoil After Suspending a Reporter Who Drew Attention to Kobe Bryant's Rape Allegations

Follow-up to this post. Trigger warning for everything that follows.

To sum up: On twitter, Washington Post reporter and sexual assault survivor Felicia Sonmez recently linked to an article about the rape allegations against Kobe Bryant.

tweet

Her tweet ignited a furious backlash - she received so many death and rape threats she had to move to a hotel. She informed WaPo but instead of supporting her, she was put on leave because her post was deemed "in poor judgement", "undermined the work of her colleagues", and "damages the institution".

Somnez was warned that she would act “in violation of a directive from a managing editor" if she didn't take down the tweets. She complied even though she was worried about destroying the evidence of the threats made against her. Collapse )
