You are supreme, the chicks'll cream for greased lightnin'

My first intro to this song was when they did it on Home Improvement. LINK

On that one they changed "cream" to "scream". Blew my mind the first time I heard the original.

This is such a tired headline trope. There are 200-300 MILLION people on twitter. So you can find 20 or so tweets from loonies saying anything. A loud few fringe weirdos say something and it's "people are outraged on social media". And then another group sees it and gets outraged by the outrage.




The media has perfectly dialed in the optimum outrage porn. Just enough woke/SJW pandering to get the SJWs to reflexively join the cause to cancel something, while also drawing the ire of the anti-SJW crowd.

CLICK-BAIT.

The first thing we should do is stop writing new articles because a few random people on Twitter were complaining. And definitely stop calling them “critics”

You gotta earn that 30k salary writing 40 articles with 20 word counts a day somehow. When there’s no news you gotta create news.

And people on this board eat it up every time. This article didn’t even put in the effort to link any of the tweets it referenced just threw them in the story and were like “take our word for it this was a real tweet I read”

The "Starbucks War on Christmas" was started by one online article where the writer noticed that Starbucks had switched to plain red cups for Christmas instead of the usual holiday decorated cups. He claimed that this would anger Christians. That led to sites and TV stations asking people if they thought it was a good idea for Starbucks to ban Christmas from their coffee cups. Of course people said that sounded terrible, and another war on Christmas was born.

If you ask enough people if something pisses them off, eventually you'll piss off enough people to make it a thing.

They should be far more alarmed at just how filthy the songs are in that movie. I actually kinda love Grease, but watching it as an adult...holy shit, some of those song lyrics are straight up filthy.


Can't believe y'all didn't know the words. As a 17 year old, I knew every single word. This was sort of the whole point of the show.

As long as media companies are bowing to "social media users," it is relevant. See: Gina Carano.

Do you dumbasses just mine the depths of the twitter cesspool all day for this shit?

You’re giving the ten people who “care” exactly what they want.

The article linked in the OP is on msn.com. How far into the "depths of the twitter cesspool" do you think folks have to dig to find msn.com?

100% comparable. What she posted was 100% innocent, not racist, not "rapey," etc. Same goes for Grease. You ignore this at your own peril.

So probably a whole 10 people on Twitter.
It's the new:

"experts say"
"critics argue"
"others suggest"
"some say"
"many contend that"

It's code for the article's author inserting their own opinion
