Red Bull Pays $13 Million In Class Action Lawsuit For Not Actually “Giving You Wings”

Red Bull Pays $13 Million In Class Action Lawsuit For Not Actually "Giving You Wings"

I want to meet the guy who guzzled a Red Bull, checked his watch after a few minutes and was like “Where the hell are my wings? This company is bullshit. I’m suing!”

For over 20 years, Red Bull has been lying to consumers by using the slogan “Red Bull gives you wings,” and now they’re paying $13 million dollars for not ACTUALLY giving you wings. Lucky for you, if you’ve bought a Red Bull even once in the last 12 years, you’re eligible for a $10 cash settlement, or (surprise, surprise) $15 worth of free Red Bull.  Keep reading »

The End Zone: Is Thursday Night Football Too Much Football?

There comes a point right around this time of the season where a thought runs through my brain that I would never dare utter out loud: “This is too much football.” We just wrapped Week 5, are close to being midway through the season, and even though I just spent the entire summer lamenting the lack of exciting sports to watch (sorry, baseball, until October, you’re a distant third to “Law & Order: SVU” reruns), between Thursday Night Football, games all day Sunday, and Monday Night Football on top of that – it all gets a little overwhelming.

10 WTF Things Susan G. Komen Should Pinkify For Breast Cancer Awareness (Ranked!)

Susan G. Komen Pink Drill Bits

To be clear, raising money to increase awareness and find a cure for breast cancer is a great, important thing. But Susan G. Komen For The Cure, which lost all of my support when they pulled funding from Planned Parenthood, even though the women’s health organization provides vital breast cancer screenings to low-income women, continues to go to ridiculously gross lengths to pinkify the cause. As if pink handguns weren’t enough, Komen has teamed up with Baker Hughes, a major drilling services company involved in fracking, to make 1,000 pink drill bits, which Baker Hughes says is them “doing our ‘bit’ for the cure.” GET IT?! A Komen spokesperson explained the partnership “grew from Baker Hughes’ involvement in our Houston Race for the Cure” and that “the evidence to this point does not establish a connection between fracking and breast cancer.” [Salon]

This makes me want to dry heave. Destroy the environment FOR THE CURE! Carry pink weapons FOR THE CURE! Seriously, what will Susan G. Komen pinkify next? Because I have some ideas, ranked from bad to worst… Keep reading »
