Somewhere in this country, there’s a dog eating a Big Mac.
A new survey found one in SIX people usually buy their dog something when they go through a fast food drive-thru.
McDonald’s is the most popular place to get something. The rest of the top 10 are: Burger King . . . Wendy’s . . . Taco Bell . . . Starbucks . . . Sonic . . . Chick-fil-A . . . Dairy Queen . . . In-N-Out Burger . . . and Culver’s.
Obviously we’re most likely to order something if our dog is actually IN the car when we go through the drive-thru . . . in 80% of those cases he’ll get some food.
What are the creepiest things you can do on Facebook? Some of the best ones are: Tagging yourself in someone else’s engagement photo . . . requesting someone’s relationship status and address . . . and friending someone else’s grandma.
The words "creepy" and "Facebook" are pretty much intertwined now . . . since everyone has done SOMETHING creepy on Facebook. But when you get beyond stalking your exes, what OTHER creepy things go on?
Here’s a list from Gizmodo.com of the eight creepiest things you can do on Facebook . . . and they really nailed it.
1. Posting a photo of your face on someone else’s wall with zero explanation.
2. Tagging yourself in someone else’s engagement photo.
3. Commenting on someone’s photo from 10 years ago as if it’s current. Like, if they’re eating a donut, write, "Mmm! Looks good!"
4. Commenting on someone’s life events you had no part in.
5. Requesting someone’s relationship status . . . and their address.
6. Friending someone’s GRANDMOTHER.
7. POKING someone’s grandmother.
8. Sincerely interacting and engaging with brands. Think of how weirded out your friends will be when they see you respond, "LOL" to a super lame joke that Burger King or T-Mobile posted.
Is there a better way to understand America than by our favorite BRANDS? No, there isn’t.
A website called Direct Capital just analyzed Google searches to figure out the top three BRANDS people search for in every state. Or as they’re calling it, the three most POPULAR brands in all 50 states . . . which may or may not be true.
The top brand in a lot of states is a huge company headquartered there . . . like Microsoft in Washington, Anheuser-Busch in Missouri, FedEx in Tennessee, KFC in Kentucky, Ford in Michigan, and Walmart in Arkansas.
The second-most popular brand is a lot less predictable . . . some are companies based in the state, but there are a lot of food and alcohol brands too.
By the time you get down to the third-most popular brand, it’s rarely something with its headquarters in the state, so you get down to what people REALLY want . . . like Playboy in Virginia, Gucci in Georgia, and Taco Bell in Idaho.
Here are five highlights we picked out . . .
1. Connecticut’s second-most popular brand is Natural Light beer, which is amazing. Iowa’s second-most popular brand is Busch Light . . . if it weren’t for Connecticut’s pick, that would be the cheapest beer to crack this thing.
2. Nevada’s top three brands are all amazing representations of the “alcohol and money” gambling culture: Ferrari . . . Belvedere Vodka . . . and Lamborghini.
3. Arizona and New Mexico are in a clear TEQUILA war. The most popular brand in Arizona is Jose Cuervo . . . the most popular brand in New Mexico is Patron.
4. Coors and Coors Light didn’t crack Colorado’s top three . . . but Budweiser did, coming in third. Coors Light WAS the second-most popular brand in North Dakota, for what it’s worth.
5. And finally, Nebraska clearly has its priorities straight . . . its top three brands are Blue Moon beer, Burger King, and Doritos.
