A new article in the New York Times highlights the fact that Denmark's fast food workers make $20/hour, and the country's economy has shockingly failed to collapse into a post-apocalyptic morass of universal poverty and entitlement. Imagine that.

If you needed any evidence that Yelp reviewers aren't the only people on the website who are terrible at life, look no further.

After a Reno, Nevada bakery started making cronuts (and calling them that), they received a cease-and-desist letter from Dominique Ansel's cronutterie in New York. What happened next is one of the most delightfully sarcastic things I've ever seen.
