For those of us who are unfamiliar with Greek mythology, Imgur user Skyscraper4ants explained the joke for everyone.
Someone on Twitter asked Gordon Ramsay if he's allergic to anything. His response made a lot of people mad:
It may be a fitting joke for a chef but it wasn't very nice. Not surprisingly, vegans responded with disappointment.

Some people were more upset that the joke just wasn't that clever:
But it's ok guys, because he apologized and clarified that it was just a joke.
Good one, Ramsay.
In preparation for his return to Earth, astronaut Scott Kelly decided to have a little fun. When he returns he'll have stayed been in space for 520 consecutive days, a US record. He's also given a not as funny interview reflecting on his one year mission.
People in Singapore are having a devil of a time deciding what to do about the new '666' bus line. 666 is considered by the superstitious to be the "number of the beast" in reference to Satan. Some of the Facebook comments on the Land Transport Authority announcement say using this number is insensitive. Others argue that it's perfectly reasonable.
The rest of the commenters just showed up to make jokes.

Hopefully the '666' bus driver will have a sense of humor, these jokes will probably only stop when Hell freezes over.
Let's stick to making mediocre breakfast, IHOP. Social media isn't for you.
The pancake house is in deep syrup after making a joke on Twitter Sunday that fell...flat.
The reaction to the joke was swift, which likened a stack of pancakes to a women with a flat chest.
But this isn't the first time IHOP has tried variations of misogyny. It looks like the company tweeted about a "butter face" back in March.
It didn't take long for IHOP to tweet out an apology. It almost seems like they knew the backlash was coming.
Earlier today we tweeted something dumb and immature that does not reflect what IHOP stands for. We're sorry.— IHOP (@IHOP) October 19, 2015
Yesterday, Apple had one of its events which makes you spend the next few hours madly adjusting your spending expectations for the year. There, they announced the Apple Pencil.
It's a neat little thing, but it's also a total stylus with a fancy name and a $100 price tag.
So, the Internet had at it.

While you were dusting off your top hat and cleaning your monocle for the start of this Monday morning, you may have noticed something was off with the stock market.
For starters, the economy tanked hard, dropping 1,000 points in seconds after opening.
That's real bad.
Also, One Direction split up.
Early Aug. 13, Sesame Street announced a surprising partnership with HBO that will give the premium cable network, known for graphic, graphic content, a whole lot of children's programming.
Sesame will be able to produce almost twice as much new content as previous seasons, and for the first time ever, make the show available free of charge to PBS and its member stations after a nine-month window.
It didn't take long for Twitter to weigh in on this turn of events.
