bacon 300x170 Lady likes bacon so much, shell shoot you for itBacon is amazing. Don’t even try and argue. Bacon is so amazing that vegetarians dream of rolling around in great vats of sizzling pig rashers.

Thanks to bacon’s power, it can make people go crazy, as you’re about to find out with one lady from Michigan.

Shaneka Torres went to a branch of McDonald’s and, at the drive-thru in Grand Rapids, twice tried to order a bacon cheeseburger, but after mix-up, she didn’t get one with bacon on it. By way of apology, she was promised a free bacon cheeseburger the next time she’s stopped by.

All well and good, right? WRONG.

Shaneka came back to the restaurant and again, was given a cheese burger without bacon. This is when things started to get crazy. According to reports, she said: “Bitch, you don’t know who you’re talking to…” before whipping out a handgun from her bag and firing through the drive-thru window.

The bullet narrowly missed a worker who’d ducked seconds before, to pick up a burger. Seriously – how bumbling are the staff at this particular McD’s? Dropping stuff and giving out the wrong orders all the time? We suspect a portion of Bitterwallet readers are firmly on the side of the handgun.

Take heed though, if you’re thinking of going all Falling Down: jurors took a mere hour to convict Torres of the shooting and now she’s looking at seven years in prison. Let us hope the prison slophouse has some bacon on their cheeseburgers or there’s going to be a riot.

Tesco too literal with their marketing slogans

March 25th, 2015 2 Comments By Mof Gimmers

Tesco can’t get a thing right at the moment, with legal action being taken against them for that accounting balls-up, and now, they’re being far too literal with their marketing slogans.

Have a look at this lovely scene and see if you can spot it (we didn’t, immediately).

CA2oMnYVAAAIout 500x288 Tesco too literal with their marketing slogans

While the Tesco lorry proudly crows: “You shop, we drop”, you can see that the fella in the hi-vis jacket has taken the slogan on as gospel, and dropped his load everywhere.

If advertising slogans are all correct, maybe Gillette is the best a man can get and the men of the world have already peaked, and we should just give up?


Tesco’s diabetes Easter Eggs!

March 24th, 2015 No Comments By Mof Gimmers

Easter is a time for gorging on all manner of tooth-rotting items, as we all know. That’s because, in The Bible, Jesus famously hatched out of a giant egg after some Romans had nailed him to a cross. On emerging from the giant egg, Jesus was dressed as a Playboy bunny, hence why we celebrate the resurrection with rabbits and eggs.

Of course, all the supermarkets like to get into the Easter spirit by displaying eggs and the like, but one branch of Tesco went off-piste with their display.

As the picture below shows, some bright spark decided to warn you of the onset of Type 2 diabetes, which could definitely be brought about by eating too much chocolate.

Dr Aseem Malhotra spotted this and shared it on Twitter with the caption: “Is this some sort of sick joke?”

We think this could be the work of someone fabulously clueless or indeed, the handiwork of a bored member of staff or someone who has just handed their notice in and resolutely doesn’t care if they get in trouble or not.

Bravo, either way.

Drunk woman performs sex act on flight

March 23rd, 2015 5 Comments By Mof Gimmers

British Airways 857 19385812 0 0 4005 300 Drunk woman performs sex act on flightGetting on a plane can be a worrying, trying experience at the best of times. Boarding a metal cylinder which hurtles through the air at huge speeds, with the potential for crashing into the hard, unforgiving earth, is enough to get your heart racing.

Imagine then, considering all that, how stressed passengers would be, if one of your fellow travellers has tried to settle their nerves with a stiff drink. Or ten. Thousand.

Well, in a flight from Jamaica which was landing at Gatwick, a lady got tanked up on booze and then started getting freaky.

The lady in question stripped off in front of her fellow passengers and then, with a flourish, decided to perform what is politely described as ‘a solo sex act’.

The 46 year old lady had quite the time of it and then, on landing, was greeted by the police who were waiting on the tarmac, holding the handcuffs and waiting to book her for being incredibly drunk on an aircraft.

British Airways aren’t in the mood for commenting on this incident.

Fancy a Kit Kat sandwich?

March 23rd, 2015 7 Comments By Mof Gimmers

Japan again, where culinary rules are thrown out of the window and everyone is invited to cook-up and assemble all manner of fantastical nonsense for you to pop in your flapping gob.

So what have we got this time? Well, if you read the headline, you’ll know we’ve got a nice Kit Kat sandwich for you to mull over.

As this is Japan, where they have Kit Kats that taste like Baked Potato and even Wasabi flavours, you’ll be pleased to know that this particular sandwich deals with the trad. arr. Kit Kat that you know and love.

kit kat sandwich Fancy a Kit Kat sandwich?

This is the brainchild of First Kitchen, and as you might be able to work out, the dish consists of a muffin, enough whipped cream to give you instant diabetes, some bits of orange to make you feel healthy and a Kit Kat.

We translated the description from the site, and this Kit Kat sandwich has “outstanding compatibility with coffee, ease of use as a dessert” and has been “developed with the aim of glutinous mouthfeel”.

If you’re in Japan, it’ll cost you £1.25ish and if you’re not, you are no doubt capable enough of making your own.

All hail Burger King’s burger perfume!

March 19th, 2015 1 Comment By Mof Gimmers

The amount of Z-list celebrities that have their own fragrance range, it is only fair that Burger King have their own too. Over in That Japan, Burger King are offering you meat lovers the chance to buy their new perfume called ‘Flame Grilled’.

Pop some of it on your wrists and behind the ears, and soon enough, you’ll have every dog in town following you around while vagrants lick your skin. It’ll cost you £27ish, and will come with a Whopper, which is just great. When you run out of ‘Flame Grilled’, maybe you can just wipe an actual burger under your armpits?

Of course, BK devotees will know that this isn’t the first fragrance released by the fast food outlet. Back in 2008, Burger King gave ‘Flame’ to the world, which was described as smelling like a mixture of Lynx deodorant and YSL, but ‘not very meaty’.

Hopefully, this new one just smells like cooked burger grease. Here’s an advert for ‘Flame’ – we look forward to BW readers telling us about wearing the new one on a first date.

Swizzels create greatest job in the universe

swizzels sweets 300x300 Swizzels create greatest job in the universeSwizzels – the good folks behind Love Hearts, Refreshers, Drumsticks and those ace chalky lollipops – are looking for someone to become their chief taster.

Sod your teeth – this is the best job in the universe and you can always get some dentures.

There’s a catch though. The job itself will pay a salary in sweets, so unless you want to run a black market on chewy, fizzy sweeties, you might want to look elsewhere if you want to keep up with your rent.

So what’s the job entail? Well, you have to be over 16 (sorry kids) and show that you have the following skills.

A sweet tooth
Previous and detailed experience of eating sweets
Finely tuned taste buds
A passion for confectionery
The ability to act like a kid in a sweet shop
An adventurous and creative mind

Your responsibilities?

Going behind the scenes at the Swizzels factory in Derbyshire
Learning the tricks of the trade alongside new product development manager Emma Herring
Sampling existing and brand new (to the market) products that no-one’s tried before
Helping to develop new and exciting products
Receiving highly confidential sweet prototypes through the year to test and feedback to the team

Sarah-Louise Heslop, Swizzels marketing manager said: “We’re looking for our biggest fan to join us at our factory and help us develop new additions to our range. No experience is necessary – just a love of sweets.”

If you want in, then you have ’til April 30th to write 500 words or submit a short video entry detailing why you’re the person for the job. Click here to get on it. Might be worth looking up type 2 diabetes while you’re at it.

poo crap 300x300 Someones poo was so bad, a plane had to turn back

Passengers were flying to Dubai to have a lovely time, when suddenly, they were heading back to Heathrow. Not because of technical problems, but because someone had dropped their guts in a spectacularly vile manner.

Those on the flight had been complaining about the skin-stripping stench from the toilets which were enough to curdle milk.

Tory councillor Abhishek Sachdev was on-board (going to Dubai, eh?) and tweeted about the whole affair, prompting Bitterwallet to immediately think ‘whoever smelt it, dealt it’. That’s the way it works right? Even in adult life.

His tweet read:

flight poo Someones poo was so bad, a plane had to turn back

Talking to the Mail, he said the pilot apologised to the passengers, and: “About 10 minutes later he said you may have noticed there’s a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets. He said it was liquid faecal excrement, those are the words he used. He said it’s not a technical fault with the plane, and he was very adamant about that.”

The flight was rescheduled for the next day and a British Airways spokesperson said: “We are very sorry for the discomfort to our customers.”

Meanwhile, someone somewhere can be proud or ashamed, depending on their constitution, of doing a crap so rancid that a plane had to stop flying.

Bionym Nymi 300x162 Fancy unlocking your account with the rhythm of your heart?How’s your heart? Well, your Halifax bank account might need to know as they’re toying with the idea of having a bracelet which you wear while it tracks the beat of your heart, which acts as a replacement for your password to get at your account.

No, seriously. It’s called the Nymi Band and it’ll look at the rhythm of your pulsating chest meat to keep you logged-in so you don’t have to remember tedious things like passwords, codes and PIN numbers.

All you do, is pop your finger on a plate which is housed in the band and it creates a circuit, and checks your electrocardiogram against one you’ve stored in it. As long as you’re wearing the band, you have access to your bank account and all that jive.

Bionym, who have come up with this device, reckon it is a much more secure than the usual means of identification. They also think you should use it for contactless payments.

Halifax digital development director Marc Lien muttered: “We are in the very early stages of exploring potential uses for the Nymi Band and wearable technology more widely which will help us further understand how we can serve our customers in the way that best appeals to their needs.”

Cue the Daily Mail worrying about someone hacking your heart through the bracelet.

Powdered alcohol – something else to get up you

March 13th, 2015 1 Comment By Mof Gimmers

hilarious drunk man 232x300 Powdered alcohol   something else to get up you

Giving a new meaning to the term ‘powder keg’, powdered alcohol has been approved for sale over in America, which means every other booze nation is probably going to copy them.

The dismally named ‘Palcohol’ has been invented by some bloke called Mark Phillips (no, not that one) and basically, is a powdered versions of rum, vodka and an assortment of your fave cocktails. We eagerly await the first news stories of someone having an awful time after chopping and snorting 6 lines of tequila.

Why does the world need booze in powder form? Well, the inventor suggests that, if you’re an outdoorsy sort, instead of filling your backpack with bottles of booze, you can just take some sachets of booze, just add water and HEY PRESTO! you’re getting drunk on top of a hill!

Canny drunks will be thinking about sneaking drink into gigs and the like.

The news hasn’t been wholly welcomed in American, with some states already vowing to ban the sale of Palcohol. Either way, you’ll be able to buy it online from this summer.

Man finds gigantic snake in his Corn Flakes

March 11th, 2015 1 Comment By Mof Gimmers

Breakfast time is either absolutely manic (if you have kids or you like to do star-jumps while you eat) or a calm period of reflection where you skim read the news while slurping coffee.

Well, if you live in exotic countries where everything is designed to kill you, things can be a little different.

One fella in Australia, who has a regrettable moustache, was going about his business and found that his Corn Flakes had been replaced with a massive snake.

Jared Smith was in his Sydney apartment when he spied at diamond python having a nice time in his cereal box. Yes, ‘python having a nice time in his cereal box’ sounds a bit dirty.

He told The Daily Telegraph: “I peeked in the box, saw its head pop out, and that’s when I dropped my food on the counter and bolted for the door. The python was over two metres long and I couldn’t believe it was jammed into this small cereal box.”

“When I got there I actually had to tear the box to get it out, that’s how tightly squeezed in it was. It’s likely it was hiding in there to feel secure”.

Now, these particular snakes aren’t venomous, but they’re snakes, so they can bite and they look so frightening that it can turn your blood into ice. Mercifully, the story ends with a professional beast handler coming to rescue it and return it to the bush land.

Richard Bootman, 25, thought he was about to have a lovely time horsing crisps into his mouth after he’d been shopping in the Brandon store of Aldi.

Presumably, he was thinking of all that lovely, delicious grease going into his face and patting his stomach in glee when it was all done… however, something odd happened.

He said: “I opened the packet of crisps and noticed there wasn’t the usual crunchy sound you get. I tipped the packet upside-down and this oily potato just fell out onto my desk.”

bad crisps Man discovers whole spud instead of crisps in packet

We would have been livid because this is tantamount to getting sabotaged with something healthy when you thought you were about to have a gloriously disgusting party in your mouth. It feels like someone ‘surprising’ you with alcohol-free beer.

However, Richard Bootman is twice the person we are and he thought it was funny: “We all just laughed when we saw it, then I said to a friend, “Maybe you are expected to cook your own crisps these days?”

The ultimate in artisan, DIY, next-level Salt ‘n’ Shake crisps. These would be a perfect blag for a crisps company wanting to sell to health conscious hipsters with loads of money and free time.

Anyway, Richard showed his pictures to Aldi via Twitter and they offered him a refund. An Aldi spokesperson said: “Aldi is aware of this incident and is happy to offer the customer a full refund.”

Man gets secret message in Frosties

March 9th, 2015 No Comments By Mof Gimmers

A man open a box of Frosties (nice to see an adult unashamed of eating Frosties, when other grown-ups tut at such things while rolling awful muesli round their gobs) and found it had a secret message inside!

Over in That Canada, Stephane Gaudette opened the cereal and discovered that he had the last ever box of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes ever to be made in the country.

Gaudette – a history teacher, as luck would have it – found the inner bag had a message which read: “This is the very last bag of Canadian cereal for the Canadian market from Kellogg’s London, Ontario plant.”

For those of you not up to date with Canadian cereal manufacturing news, the factory was closed in December 2014 after 107 years in business, with 550 people becoming unemployed.

There’s been some furrowed brows over a sportswear company who printed some labels for football shirts, where the washing instructions were ‘GIVE IT TO YOUR WOMAN – IT’S HER JOB’

This, of course, has seen a lot of people shrieking in disgust. Not the people who think the message is a bit off, but rather, people who say things like ‘feminazis’ and the like.

B kIygdUsAA4d6U Washing instructions: Give It To Your Woman
Salvo Sports made the shirts for Indonesian Super League side Pusamania Borneo, which as you can see, had a label that said: “Washing instructions: Give this shirt to a woman. It’s her job.”

The response from people who thought it wasn’t a particularly nice thing to have on a shirt, was basically ‘this seems sexist’ or ‘bloody hell’, which of course, was met with the most hysterical set of people on the internet – those who think they’re not at all hysterical who like shouting at feminists (even though many of those criticising the label hadn’t said if they were or weren’t feminists at all).

Among all this, Salvo Sports said sorry on their Twitter account: “The message is simply, instead of washing it in the wrong way, you might as well give it to a lady because they are more capable”

“There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast [we want to tell the men] learn from women how to take care of clothes”

Boom! There you go! Some lovely back-pedalling from a company saying ‘no, no, no, no – we meant that women should wash the clothes because women are the best! Loving your work ladies!‘ Meanwhile, the internet debates about what can and can’t constitute a joke and where people hysterically shout at each other, claiming to not be hysterical themselves.

“Hey! Get women to wash your clothes!” is a rubbish joke though.

Dating site gets rid of 3,000 for being ugly

March 6th, 2015 No Comments By Mof Gimmers

date dating Dating site gets rid of 3,000 for being uglyA dating website has axed 3,000 people for being too ugly. The site claims to find love for only the most beautiful people, so if you have a face like someone trying to force an ankle through a tennis racket, it is Tinder for you pal.

This was undertaken by, who got rid of those who they reckon don’t come up to the ‘rigorous standards expected’ of the ‘exclusive community’. Of course, the people that remain on the site must have something wrong with them, or they wouldn’t have to use a dating website to find a mate to hump if they are so impossibly beautiful.

Members have been removed for a variety of reasons, with the most common being that they’d put weight on or – and get this – ‘graceless’ ageing.

This sends a very clear message to those who sign-up for the site: if you’re good looking, stay on top of it or else. And if you’re thinking of joining the site, because people cry at how amazing your face is, then you need to know a few things.

The site says: “BeautifulPeople is the first dating community of its kind. To become a member, applicants are required to be voted in by existing members of the opposite sex. Members rate new applicants over a 48 hour period based on whether or not they find the applicant ‘beautiful’. Should applicants secure enough positive votes from members, they will be granted membership to the BeautifulPeople dating community. The vote is fair and democratic. BeautifulPeople does not define beauty it simply gives an accurate representation of what society’s ideal of beauty is as decided by the members.”

Of course, it does define beauty, because if you hit the biscuit tin too frequently, you get booted off.

Greg Hodge, managing director, said: “We have to stick to our founding principles of only accepting beautiful people – that’s what our members have paid for. We can’t just sweep 30,000 ugly people under the carpet.”
