Fast Food Wars

Bob caught a PT reference while watching MSNBC’s “All In” with Chris Hayes. The story was about a price war between McDonalds and Burger King, and Hayes apparently intoned, “The shroud of the dark meat has fallen. Begun the Nugget Wars have.”

    The PT did leave a significant cultural impact. I was reading a blog about some social/political topic a few days ago, and I noticed that the writer snuck in a PT reference in response to some journalist’s allusion to the conflict in the OT. It went along these lines:

    J: “Group X likes to think they’re the Rebel Alliance against the evil Empire of Group Y. In truth, they’re more like the Empire.”

    B: “No, both groups are more like the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems *lists SW lore about how both Palpatine and Dooku claim to represent the downtrodden*.”

    It felt good to see such a remark for many reasons.

    I watched “All In” once… that was enough…
