Internet Trolls Cracker Barrel After A Man’s Wife Was Fired On His Birthday!

(PCM) What began as an innocent tweet by a man named Bradley Reid Byrd asking why a Cracker Barrel restaurant fired his wife after 11 dedicated years of service has now morphed into a hilarious internet trolling war with tons of internet users showing their support and demanding #justiceforbradswife!

Poor Brad was simply looking for answers as to why his wife was let go from her position and it just so happened that she was fired on his birthday of all days. Cracker Barrel did not respond to Brad’s tweet, but the internet sure did and now they are posting hundreds of reasons why Brad’s wife should have never been fired in the first place. Digging underneath all the sarcastic commentary and quips a Cracker Barrel manager did respond to the situation making a statement proclaiming that Brad’s wife was just not a good fit for the company any longer. According to Facebook user, Michelle Bowman Neuhauser, “Bradley Reid Byrd’s wife, Nanette, worked at the Corydon, Indiana Cracker Barrel for 11 years, was fired by a district manager named Gwen Alexander. Reason given was, “She wasn’t working out.” She’s an older woman whom coworkers/customers say was hardworking, averaged 50-60 hrs a week. Since CB wouldn’t give Brad and Nanette an answer, he posted his question on their FB page”

You know the folks on the internet can solve just about every mystery, so they are speculating that it was very young manager that fired Brad’s wife and that it may be a case of age discrimination, as Brad’s wife is assumed to be much older. Each and every time that Cracker Barrel’s social media team posts something new, their comments section is flooded with clever responses that urge them to pursue some kind of #justiceforbradwife!  She certainly deserves it at this point and we are sure the Cracker Barrel REALLY, REALLY regrets firing her at this point.

Some of the best social media responses can be found below:

Someone even started a Change.org petition urging Cracker Barrel to explain the termination of #BradsWife! The petition has already reached over 20,000 signatures and continues to grow. It has been delivered to Cracker Barrels corporate office! Don’t worry Brad’s wife … Brad and the internet love you even if Cracker Barrel doesn’t!

Ghost Sighting Captured At Abandoned Military Base

(PCM) Whenever a new ghost sighting video is posted there is always a rather large debate over whether or not the footage is indeed legit or if has been tampered with in some way. We have to admit that many of these videos provide some pretty compelling evidence that supports the theory that the spirits of the dead often walk among us. One of the latest ghost sightings was captured by 44-year old Steve Wesson, who was on a ghost-hunting tour with a group called UK Ghost Hunt.

The UK Ghost Hunt group refer to themselves as a Paranormal Investigations Company and the trip consisted of them exploring an abandoned air force base in Lincolnshire, England called Manby Hall. Rumor has it that Manby Hall is haunted by the ghost of a WWII Royal Air Force pilot. Sure enough, the visage of what the group captured on film, unbeknownst to them at the time, very much resembles some sort of officers holding a light source.

You can see that as the group is getting ready to enter another room, Wesson’s video camera captures the image of a shadowy figure walking up a corridor in front of the them, however no one in the group appears to notice. The group claims that there were only four of them on the expedition and that they were all accounted for at the time the incident occurred. You can watch the creepy footage below:

Wesson explains that despite the fact that he appears to follow the shadowy figure with the light down the corridor, he actually didn’t seen the ghostly image until he was reviewing the days footage later. He felt he may have seen something or some kind of slight movement out of the corner of his eye which is what prompted him to walk in that direction, but never saw anything while they were in the building.

According to Elite Daily, Wesson and his team went back to the building again the next day to investigate further and learned that it was impossible for anyone else to be inside the building with them, as only security had access to the premises.

Say It Isn’t So! Dunkin Donuts Discontinues Their Famous Coffee Coolatta!

(PCM) Everyone is freaking out over the announcement that Dunkin Donuts will be discontinuing their famous Coffee Coolatta frozen beverages. What in the world will summer be like for us caffeine addicts now?

The Coffee Coolatta was first introduced back in 1994 and has been a Dunkin Donuts staple ever since. Chris Fuqua, Dunkin’s senior vice president of brand marketing said in a recent press conference announcing the Coffee Coolatta’s departure, “Our Coffee Coolatta isn’t good enough!”. Fuqua went on to reveal that the Coffee Coolatta will be getting a replacement in the form of the new Dunkin Donuts Frozen Coffee, which will be a blended beverage that gets it’s inspiration from Dunkin Donut’s iced coffee drinks and is made with coffee extract, sugar, and dairy.

Don’t get us wrong! We are certainly going to miss the beloved Coffee Coolatta, but we are kind of leaning towards the new Dunkin Donuts Frozen Coffee to be a better choice. Don’t some of you recall getting a weird aftertaste in your mouth after drinking a Coffee Coolatta? We do and it was kind of gross. The Coolatta was more like a coffee-flavored slushie and we hope the new Dunkin Frozen Coffee will remind us more of a smoothie or  frozen Frappuccino from Starbucks without the insane price tag.

Dunkin Donuts hopes that the introduction of the new Frozen Coffee drinks will help “contemporize” their frozen drink platform and help pave the way for even more new innovations for the company. Rest assured that your favorite fruit-flavored Coolatta beverages will still be available and additional flavors will be rolled out again this summer. Brand marketing manager Anthony Bonitatibus says,  “We have to continue to innovate against coffee, because of its importance to us as a business. We’re always thinking about what is the next big thing in coffee, because we can’t just rest on our laurels.”

Someone Attempted To Sell A Bag Of Air That Contained Adele’s Breath On Ebay!

(PCM) No, we are not kidding! Someone on Ebay was attempting to sell a bag of air that was allegedly breathed by Adele during her recent “25” concert tour for the amount of $2,000! Let alone wanting to meet the person who was trying to pull this off, we would love to feast our eyes on the person who would be willing to drop that much money on a bag of literal air.

We suppose the seller,@shaun_mcdonough, gets some kind of points for creativity as the Ebay listing, which has since been removed claimed that the air was “legit” and was captured by McDonough at Adele’s recent concert. The auction began at $14.95 and skyrocketed up to $2,000 before Ebay caught on, however we can’t help but wonder just how high the price would have gone had Ebay kept the listing live.

The Ebay posting also included a photo snapped by McDonough of a Adele at the show to prove that they were really in attendance and within the proper distance to capture the air in a bag. After the first listing was removed McDonough tried once again to list the bag of Adele air, but not surprisingly the second auction was also removed. When posting the second listing, McDonough included a note he received from Ebay in regards to the first posting which read, “We’ve determined that some of your listings haven’t followed our No Item policy… To protect both buyers and sellers, buyers should be able to verify an item after receiving it. Listings that don’t offer an item for sale, or where the existence of the item for sale can’t be verified, aren’t allowed.”

It would be pretty hard to verify a bag of air and what about shipping! How would you be sure that the air would not leak out of the bag should it become ripped or damaged. Looks like no one will be owning any Adele air anytime soon!
