This Is The Best Drunken Waffle House Order We've Ever Seen

Occasionally going out for drinks doesn’t end all that well. Sometimes we wake up after a late night of partying and wish we hadn’t said or done certain things, or we regret that last martini because we aren’t feeling great. Other times, though, we get lucky and wake up feeling pretty damn proud of what went down during the fun night out. And, usually those exciting drunken discoveries involve unexpectedly delicious food combinations. A Twitter user known as @Freako____Suave recently demonstrated this ideal outcome of a kooky night.On Sunday, @Freako____Suave posted a video to Twitter that showed off what looks like a truly magical food creation, and we’re already eager to try it. Along with the video, he wrote in his tweet, “I was so drunk last night I walked in Waffle House and told them I wanted a burger with waffle buns and they did it.” The video zooms in on the perfectly crisp waffles, and there does indeed seem to be a burger patty and a beautiful layer of melted cheese in between. Side note, in the background, you can also hear that he's watching Law & Order: SVU, so clearly this guy knows how to end a night out on a very high note. Check it out:I was so drunk last night I waked in Waffle House and told them I wanted a burger with waffle buns and they did it. 🤘🏾😩 pic.twitter.com/7VLOlsAul4— żamn żaddy (@Freako____Suave) March 26, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsIn his followup tweets, the user explains how his order masterpiece came to be. Honestly, kind of want to try his creation sober, and maybe Waffle House should consider adding the mashup to its official menu. Twitter would certainly be in support of that.@Freako____Suave hold brother you might have done something here pic.twitter.com/OKC0zToBYc— Hanzo Hasashi (@l0rd_frezh) March 27, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js@Freako____Suave and God said the creative shall inherit the earth— Phoenix 🔰 (@YowPhoenix) March 27, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js@Freako____Suave copyright this so your not surprised when you see a new menu item— CaliBro (@Savagelightski) March 27, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsYeah, there is absolutely nothing to regret about this ordering decision.Like what you see?

Crayola Is Retiring A Crayon In The Most Hunger Games Way & It's Not Okay

Get ready for some crushingly heartbreaking news.Remember coloring your life away when you were a kid thanks to Crayola? Well, the company made a big announcement last week...and it rocked us to our core.You should be prepared to say goodbye to the classic 24-count box of crayons you've known your whole life, because Crayola is officially retiring one of the colors for the first time ever. Survivor -style. No, Hunger Games -style.The company made the announcement on its official Facebook page.The post reads, "On National Crayon Day Crayola will retire one of its beloved colors from its iconic Crayon portfolio!! RSVP to our live stream event on 3/31 to find out #WhosLeaving!"Crayola even included a hashtag, you guys. And an RSVP button for a livestream. The company is killing the color on National Crayon Day, too. It's downright soul-crushing...and a brilliant marketing move, actually.On its website, the company even has a countdown to March 31 and photos of people sharing their favorite colors.This seems particularly heartless. But if you're freaking out because you think this means the box will have only 23 colors, don't fret. Even though Crayola is nixing a color in the most Hunger Games way, ever, the 24-count box will still be safe."The color will be retired across the entire crayon portfolio, including the iconic 24- and 64-count boxes as well as all other Crayon products," Joshua Kroo, the company's director of marketing communications, told Mashable. "Crayola is all about innovating with color, so consumers can expect that there will be a new, exciting color coming soon! Of course, the 24-box will always have that number of crayons."So, which color will be gone? According to Mashable, the current colors in the 24-box include: "red, yellow, blue, brown, orange, green, violet, black, carnation pink, yellow orange, blue green, red violet, red orange, yellow green, blue violet, white, violet red, dandelion, cerulean, apricot, scarlet, green yellow, indigo, and gray."At this point, it's impossible to say. On the flip side, we are getting a new color and that makes us feel a little better. The real question is whether the new kid on the block will live up to the OG hue. In the meantime, we'll start stocking up on old-school 24-count packs. Gotta color our way out of this heartbreak.Like what you see?

You'll Soon Be Able To Access Tinder From Anywhere

You probably didn't need another reason to waste time on Tinder, but, hurray, we found one: Pretty soon, you may no longer need a smartphone to use the matchmaking app. Instead, you'll be able to swipe left and right (obviously, mostly left) from a computer browser while procrastinating at school, work, or anywhere else.As Tinder's blog correctly points out, this will be your professor's and boss' worst nightmare. "Mobile phones not allowed in class? Just fire up your laptop and swipe incognito. Cubicle life got you down? Now you can toggle between spreadsheets and Super Likes in a flash." And for those who are always deleting apps because they're running out of storage? "'Not Enough Storage?' Not a problem. Don’t let life get in the way of your Tinder game."While the online experience will be "slightly more limited," you'll still be able to click through pictures, send messages, get matches, avoid matches, and more. To get started, just visit Tinder.com from any browser and log in or create a profile — then start messaging. "And that last step is more seamless than ever before if you’re on your desktop: It’s an experience specially designed for messaging, displaying your match’s profile as you chat," notes Tinder's blog. (There's an online demo, too.)For now, the feature is only being rolled out in a few countries: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Philippines, and Sweden. It's all part of Tinder's efforts to expand its global reach. Plus, it's even working on a way for people to be able to log in directly via text message, since in some parts of the world there's limited access to Facebook.Happy swiping — just don't let your professor catch you.Like what you see?

Twitter Wants Everyone To Know That “Hand Salad” Is NOT A Thing

We're all for creativity, especially when it comes to cooking. Many of us are constantly looking for new ways to prepare classic dishes, and most of the time, we're pretty opened minded about trying ones we've never heard of. But, then there are those times when the new recipes just go too far. Bon Appétit recently found out the hard way that a lot of people are a bit stubborn when it comes to totally weird food concepts, especially when they borrow from existing ones.According to Seventeen, Twitter is having a pretty strong reaction to Bon Appétit 's recent tweet about what it has dubbed "hand salad." The tweet included a link to the recipe for hand salad, which explained that it's basically just Romaine hearts dipped in a lemon-yogurt dressing. The opening line of the recipe reads, "We call this a hand salad because lettuce and dip just doesn’t sound like nearly as much fun." Hmm.It's called a "hand salad" but let's not focus on that https://t.co/fRTxgR79cY pic.twitter.com/XWY0mbAqF4— Bon Appétit (@bonappetit) March 27, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsUnfortunately, Twitter just is not picking up what the magazine is putting down, and several users seem determined to make sure everyone knows "hand salad" is not a thing. Some pointed out that there was already a name for this kind of appetizer dish, while others insisted that simply dipping veggies in a dressing didn't need any kind of formal moniker. A few Twitter users took it even further by teasing Bon Appétit with their own takes on this new, loose definition of the term salad.I would leave a restaurant if I saw hand salad on the menu https://t.co/mKW1mbeCja— Farhad Manjoo (@fmanjoo) March 27, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsI’m so old I remember when “hand salad” used to be called “crudités." https://t.co/peMxKiVvdQ— Corinne Marasco (@CorinneAM) March 27, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsYes, I will continue dunking things into ranch dressing. No, I won't be calling it a fucking "hand salad."

You Can Fly To France & Norway For Under $4 — But There's A Catch

Come on, you knew a $4 flight was too good to be true. No, you can't actually pay as little as the price of a certain low-cost Trader Joe's wine and fly wherever you wish at the snap of your fingers (or click of your keyboard). But — and this is a good "but" — if you act fast, you can fly to France and Norway for £2.99 (that's about $3.75) on Ryanair, with certain restrictions. And it's a flash sale, so hurry!According to The Sun, included in the sale are flights to the wine-making region of Bordeaux (there we go with a wine reference again), as well as to Brive and Dinard, a historic beach town in Brittany. You can also fly to Oslo, which has long been on our bucket list.Here's the catch (and you knew there was going to be one): These cheap flights only depart from London's Stansted airport, which is about an hour outside of the city. Plus, you have to be pretty flexible with your dates. For example, Travel + Leisure reports, the £2.99 trip to Dinard is only available on April 4.But if you're hopping around Europe anyway, and your dates aren't set in stone, this could be just the right deal to keep you exploring — and save some major moola while you're at it.Like what you see?

Here's Why Twitter Users Are So Amped About The New iPhone Update

If you tried to download the latest iPhone update, iOS 10.3, when it was released yesterday, you might have noticed that it took extra long to download. As many Twitter users have been pointing out, that's actually a very good thing.The reason is due to an under-the-radar addition to the update, known as APFS, or the Apple File System. While it doesn't sound sexy, it will likely make some programs on your phone seem faster, and may even free up some space.APFS replaces an older file system, known as the HFS, or Hierarchical File System. According to The Verge, HFS was a storage system originally meant for use with floppy disks. So it was definitely time for an upgrade. APFS will be able to take advantage of flash drives and other newer technology to utilize space better.After installing 10.3, go to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage. You may notice that you now have slightly more available space. Twitter users have been quick to call attention to and praise the improvement.Sweet ✌️ More storage! IOS 10.3 changes to a new file system (APFS) for 64bit apps in the future. pic.twitter.com/Ct70CUEJmM— Terence Huijgen (@TerenceHuijgen) March 27, 2017 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsWow, iOS 10.3 gave me 3 gigs of storage #ios103— A.

So, if you have AirPods and are worried about misplacing one — or having it fall out — your chances of finding it again and saving yourself a $69 replacement fee are much higher.Looking for another way to save space on your iPhone?

10 Fast Food Chains That Secretly Have Vegan-Friendly Options

Fast food and vegan are two phrases we wouldn't say go hand in hand. Not only do meat and cheese seem to rule the brown-bag, on-the-fly food game, but we also don't always know what is being used to frying that stuff up. And up until this moment we were pretty certain that there wasn't a vegan option to be had at many favorite chains. Vegan and craving some Taco Bell? Fuggedaboutit. But fam, we were wrong.It turns out, after a bit of digging, we were able to find meat- and dairy-free options from some of the top drive-thru spots across the nation (ten to be exact). Some are hacks, some are actual menu items, and many are viable meal options. From Subway, to Burger King, and even Dominos Pizza — customers have taken to Instagram and shared their #veganfastfood success stories — proving that with just a bit of curiosity and creativity you too can enjoy a hot batch of waffle fries. (Since many of these items are off-menu and certain chains say they can't guarantee items being free of allergens, anyone with food allergies should take extra precautions.)So click on to see which joints made the cut — and let us know your vegan order hacks in the comments below!Panera BreadBlack Bean SoupChipotleVeggie or Sofritas Burrito (without cheese)Taco BellCrunch Wrap Supreme (with black beans instead of beef made fresca-style — no sour cream or cheese)Many of TB's options can be made in a similar styleChick-Fil-AWaffle Potato FriesWhite CastleVeggie SlidersSubwayVeggie Delite Sandwich Or SaladDomino's PizzaVeggie Pizza (order without cheese)Burger KingFriesFive GuysFriesMoe's South West GrillBurrito (with tofu and no cheese)Many of Moe's options can be made in a similar styleLike what you see?
