This year, as we’ve written about extensively here at RedState, has been one that started out with so much promise and has quickly turned into the worst year of America’s life. Everyone had the opportunity to really make a change, and like most opportunities, perhaps we should have thought it through a lot more than we actually did. A lot of people will end up owing America an apology for how this all turned out.
Because things are so terrible, naturally, many people are giving up. Republicans and Democrats alike are fed up with what their parties have served up for them and are leaving. The feeling of “Screw it, I’m done” is so pervasive that it has infiltrated every inch of our society.
Burger King has given up. They are offering a “Whopperito” – an unholy combination of Whopper and burrito.
A couple months ago we discovered that Burger King was testing a Whopper and burrito hybrid at a remote location in the United States. The concept was pretty cool, the contents of a Whopper stuffed inside of a flour tortilla.
It seems the testing phase was successful as people wanted to try the Whopperrito for themselves. We know we did.
Burger King has now officially announced that the Whopperrito will be making a national release on August 15. The burger and burrito fusion features grilled beef, a creamy queso sauce, Tex-Mex spices, cut tomatoes, onions, lettuce and pickles.
Oreo has given up. They are offering Swedish Fish-flavored Oreos.
Although Oreo has released a multitude of interesting flavors in the past — remember Watermelon Oreos? — the brand may have just come out with its most unique variety to date: Swedish Fish. The limited-edition cookie — which combines Oreo’s classic chocolate wafers with a cherry candy flavored red creme — will be available exclusively at Krogersupermarkets throughout the country beginning this week.
“We know that consumers enjoy variety when it comes to snacking so we create all of our limited-edition flavors to provide surprising new twists people know and love and on occasion, create unexpected and unique flavor combinations that people may never have thought were possible, including our latest from the Wonder Vault, Swedish Fish Flavored Creme Oreo Cookies,” an Oreo spokesperson told TIME in an email.
Hollywood has given up. They are offering “Ocean’s Eight,” and all-female “Ocean’s Eleven” spinoff.
Warner Bros has firmed an October start date in New York forOcean’s Eight, the female-driven caper spinoff directed by Gary Ross, and the studio is closing with its principal cast. Aside from the previously identified Sandra Bullockand Cate Blanchett, deals are close with Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Mindy Kaling and Awkwafina. The latter is the hip-hop moniker of Asian-American rapper and actress Nora Lum, who most recently had a role in Neighbors 2.
The picture is still casting — the firmed roster so far falls one shy of the title — and there is every possibility for cameos from the stars of the original trilogy, which grossed a collective $1.12 billion worldwide. Ross discussed the possibility of Bullock, Blanchett, Carter and Kaling while he was out promoting his most recent film, the Matthew McConaughey starrer Free State of Jones. Village Roadshow Pictures is co-financing and co-producing with Warner Bros.
No one cares anymore. Life has become meaningless. Here we thought it was people like those in the pro-abortion movement who would devalue life to the point that we would simply wish to stop existing, but it turns out Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton was enough to make us all regret being brought into this world. I don’t want this anymore.
This is what happens to an America that has given up faith in humanity. We brought this upon ourselves.
