No, he would not like fries with that. 

Police arrested U.S. Marshal Charles Brown on Saturday after allegedly threatening a McDonald’s employee in New York City with a gun for taking too long. Now that’s what I call an un-happy meal. Sorry.

According to Gothamist, “Charles Brown, 30, was on line at around 1:20 a.m. at the 86th Street McDonald's in Bay Ridge when he got into an argument with a 25-year-old worker about the wait, according to an NYPD spokeswoman. Brown allegedly stormed out of the establishment, pulled out a gun, and pointed it at the worker from outside, the spokeswoman said.”

First, McDonald's employees can't even make a livable wage, now customers don't even want them living. It doesn’t sound like this customer was ba-da-da-da loving it... Again, very sorry. I'm just kind of going through something at the moment. 

Police found Brown a block away with a loaded .40-caliber pistol on his belt. He is being charged “with menacing, a licensed firearm transgression, both misdemeanors, and harassment.” The judge released him without bail and requires that he stay away from McDonald’s. Wait, judges can do that? Then what excuse is there for Hamburglar crime spree? 

Sounds like he left with a real Grimace. Ugh. There’s no excuse for these. It’s just there are so many McDonald’s puns to make. Sesame seed pun. Stop it.

liberty university to add NRA approved firing range jerry falwell jr

Books? Check.

Pencils? Check.

Glock Pistol? Check.

When it’s time for back to school shopping, it’s good to have your priorities straight, and Liberty University would like you to add “gun” to your shopping list.

Look, Liberty University loves all the amendments the same but loves one just a little bit more than the rest. See if you can guess which one. After permitting students to carry guns to campus and encouraging students to take a class on obtaining their concealed-carry license, Liberty University is installing a NRA-approved firing range on campus. And they’re the first college to do so.


According to Yahoo, the University filed for a permit earlier this week to build a “nationally recognized, full-scale shooting, training and competition center,” and the NRA offered to help build it. "Last fall, the school's stance on guns attracted national headlines when Jerry Falwell Jr., president of the Christian school, encouraged students to get their concealed carry permits in order to defend themselves against what he said was the threat of armed Muslim attacks," writes Yahoo. His remarks come in conflict with the fact that white terrorists are responsible for more violent crimes on American soil.

He also went on to say this terrifying bit of Islamophobia, “I’ve always thought that if more people had concealed carry permits, then we could end those Muslims before they walked in and killed them.” So you can kind of guess where this dude’s coming from when it comes to guns.

Liberty University also helped finance the Kirk Cameron-vehicle Saving Christmas, which sits at #2 on the IMDb Bottom 100 — even though it barely qualifies as a film.

Anyway, America 2016.

man arrested for investigating conspiracy theory pizzagate at DC comet ping pong pizza

In another example of why conspiracy theories aren’t just harmless fun, a man threatened a pizza place with an assault rifle yesterday because of “pizzagate.”

In case you aren’t on Reddit or 4chan or Twitter, according to Know Your Meme, “pizzagate" is an absolutely insane conspiracy theory, “regarding a series of emails hacked from former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s account, which some supporters of Donald Trump claimed were coded messages discussing an underground pedophile ring operated at the Comet Ping Pong Pizza restaurant in Washington, D.C.”

Obviously, using the the powers of reason and critical thinking that still so many people on this planet are either suppressing or just do not have, this theory is bunk. But that wasn’t enough to stop a North Carolina man from “self-investigating” the pedophile ring with an assault rifle. 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch discharged the rifle but did not shoot anyone when he enterted Comet Ping Pong Pizza yesterday. Police arrested Welch 45 minutes later and seized a Colt .38 caliber handgun and shotgun. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

According to The Washington Post, “The popular family restaurant, near Connecticut and Nebraska avenues NW in the Chevy Chase neighborhood, was swept up in the onslaught of fake news and conspiracy theories that were prevalent during the presidential campaign. The restaurant, its owner, staff and nearby businesses have been attacked on social media and received death threats.”

Reddit has since banned the “Pizzagate” topic, but it didn’t stop harassment.

That’s the American Dream in 2016, open a small business and gain notoriety through a disgusting conspiracy theory that leads to being threatened by an assault rifle. If anyone needs me, I'll be cowering under my desk in the fetal position until the end of time.

Here’s a dude that’s definitely the worst: This Australian cop who shot a kangaroo right in front of a little kid. Yeah, you read that correctly: Cop shoots kangaroo in front of child. Come on. reports that police were responding to report of an injured kangaroo in north Melbourne, Aust on November 11. Well, one cop responded by shooting an injured kangaroo in the face. Another police officer responded to the officer by saying, “There’s a kid coming.”

Luckily, because this situation can only get worse, the kangaroo didn’t die right away. As reports that in the video it can be “seen still twitching and writhing as its blood pools on the footpath.”

Let's take a break from this story:

via Reddit

While the officers say that they did a risk assessment and determined by that the animal needed to be euthanized, they have come under fire for shooting the gun in public

“The police could have definitely handled it better,” said Hash Tropoja, who filmed the incident and uploaded the video to YouTube. “They could have blocked off cars and pedestrians from coming through the line of sight while the sergeant was taking the shot, because the bullet is a small calibre and definitely had the potential to ricochet off of the concrete in to any direction.”

“I think it’s mere luck that nothing tragic happened.”

Nothing tragic, except if you ask the kangaroo, except you can’t ask the kangaroo because the kangaroo was shot and killed. Ugh.

Ok. Let's try to get our minds off this:

Snoop Dogg, the world's most chill weed advocate, is taking on the NFL's desire to have access to guns in a new Instagram video.

Snoop takes issue with the NFL wanting to give football players access to guns but not access to weed. He successfully argues that football is already a violent profession which lends itself to perpetuating a violent environment amongst the players, and that weed would be a panacea to this problem of violence and allow the players some respite from their aggressive environment.

He even reached out the NFL to offer his services as an advocate to make this change happen:

Do it, Snoop.

Apple is releasing a bunch of new emoji, many of them include women doing more things than getting their hair done or wearing a tiara. This should be good news to the lady denizens of the internet who have been asking for these emojis for... years, maybe?

But hey, if for some reason you're upset at all the new emojis for women, never fear. The dancing bunny gals got a gender parity emoji added as well:

The real topic of controversy is actually centered around Apple's decision to totally remove guns from the line up. They've opted to replace it instead with an adorable, green squirt gun. Some people hate this decision, a lot:

Others are a little more accepting or just don't care.

Okay, they mainly just don't care. Who's out there texting people pictures of guns anyway?

Sit down Neil McCabe.

"It's just part of life, I think," proposes McCabe at one point, when he's confronted with the unavoidable fact that more than 130 people have already died from gun violence in the U.S. this year.

This is where Snow channels his inner GoT Jon Snow, and goes off in the most effective, yet vaguely stoic way possible.

"No, it's part of death, Mr. McCabe," responds Snow. "That's death. That's dead people, people who have died as a result of guns."

Stand up. Now leave Neil McCabe.
