The Best Fast Food Place According to Your Zodiac Sign

sbim_eidt

 

FULL STORY:  This is really stupid.  But there’s an astrologist named Danielle Paige, who apparently doesn’t take her job too seriously.  And she recently came up with a list of the best fast food places to go to according to your zodiac sign . . .

 

1.  If you’re an Aries . . . it’s Burger King.  You like trying new things, and they’ve been adding weird new stuff to their menu recently, like their Chicken Cheetos Fries.

 

 

2.  If you’re a Taurus . . . Chipotle.  You’re more patient and like being in control.  So you’re more likely to go somewhere that takes longer but serves real food.  And you like to watch them make it, so Subway could also work.

 

 

3.  If you’re a Gemini . . . Arby’s.  Or anywhere else that has a huge menu with lots of stuff to choose from.

 

 

4.  If you’re a Cancer . . . a bucket of chicken from KFC.  Or something like a pizza that you can share with other people.

 

 

5.  If you’re a Leo . . . Taco Bell.  Just like an Aries, you like trying new things that might seem weird to other people.  So go with something like the Doritos Locos Taco.

 

 

6.  If you’re a Virgo . . . Panera Bread.  Or anywhere else that serves stuff that’s slightly healthier than normal fast food.

 

 

7.  If you’re a Libra . . . Domino’s.  Just like Cancers, you want to be able to order something that’s big and sharable.

 

 

8.  If you’re a Scorpio . . . Starbucks.  You’re more about the experience than the food.  So you’re happier in a place with good chairs, free Wi-Fi, and half-decent music.

 

 

9.  If you’re a Sagittarius . . . In-N-Out Burger.  Or any other regional fast food place that you can’t just get anywhere.

 

 

10.  If you’re a Capricorn . . . McDonald’s.  Capricorns like classic things that remind them of their childhood.  Plus they’re practical, so the fact that it’s cheap is good too.

 

 

11.  If you’re an Aquarius . . . Dairy Queen.  Most people never go there, so it seems weirder and more unique.

 

 

12.  If you’re a Pisces . . . Wendy’s.  But the explanation is kinda weird.  It basically says you’re an optimist, so you don’t care if the food’s healthy or not.  But if that’s the standard, wouldn’t pretty much ANY fast food place work?

Do You Wanna Eat Healthier For The Holidays?

Hot-Logo

 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could lose weight and still eat like crap?  I’m not saying I have a way to DO that.  Just sayin’, that’s the dream.  And apparently America agrees . . .

According to a new study, 81% of us WANT to eat healthier during the holidays this year, which is great.  But 70% of us have no PLANS to.  So it’s just wishful thinking.

Here are three more stats from the survey . . .

 

 

1.  The main reason we want to eat less is so we don’t gain weight.  38% of people said that’s why they wish they’d eat healthier this time of year.

 

 

2.  Millennials are more likely than anyone to actually TRY to eat healthy over the next month or so.  30% said they’re planning to do it, compared to 18% of baby boomers.

 

 

3.  The type of food guys have the hardest time with this time of year is MEAT.  42% said they “can’t live without it.”  Side dishes are number one for women at 34%.

Cops in Texas Handed Out Turkeys Instead of Tickets

turkey1-x8o

We’ve seen police departments do stuff like this, but I don’t know if we’ve seen the Thanksgiving version before . . .A bunch of people in Fort Worth, Texas got pulled over for minor traffic violations on Wednesday . . . like not wearing a seatbelt, and not using their turn signal.

 

 

But instead of giving them tickets, the cops handed out Thanksgiving TURKEYS.

 

 

They did it in five different spots around the city, and it looks like they might have focused on lower income areas.

 

 

One of the cops told the local news it was a small way of reminding people that the cops are looking out for them.

 

 

And one guy who got a turkey said it was pretty inspiring, especially with how much hate there is around the country right now.

4.  A woman breastfeeding.

 

5.  A sandwich.

 

6.  A piece of pie.

 

7.  Tyrannosaurus Rex.

 

8.  A witch and wizard, vampire, elf, zombie, genie, and mermaid and merman.
