Imgur User Exposes Hank From 'King Of The Hill' As An Aggro Male Karen

Karens demand to see the manager. Apparently Hank Hills threaten you with violence if you don't fetch 'em. Imgur user AWoodenMan, who admits to adoring King of the Hill, has made quite a case that Hank Hill is a villain where engaging with workers is concerned. We didn't want to believe it, but the proof is in the screen caps. The Texan is not nice to anyone who is just trying to do their job. This information is definitely not enough to get us to stop watching the show, but we are narrowing our eyes a bit more than usual. 

King of the Hill, hank hill mean to customers, employees, anyone in customer service.

Groupon's Banana Bunker Comments Are A Goldmine Of Sexy Double Entendres

Advertising content on a social media page isn't always glamorous or creative but Groupon has managed to go down in history for making their Facebook ad content uproariously funny. The online retailer made a Facebook post declaring they are "contractually obligated" to let their audience know when the very phallic "Banana Bunker" is featured on their site. The "Bunker" is basically a sheath designed to protect bananas from wear and tear, but saucy commenters immediately made the NSFW connection and absolutely went for it on the post. 

The engagement doesn't end with the commenters - whoever is in charge of Groupon's social media made sure that the responses were just as clever and just as raunchy. The ad did so well that the company brought the product back a few month's ago. We almost want to buy one ourselves..

Funny banana bunker comments from Groupon.

Meryl Streep's shirt had a wildly different meaning across the pond.

Words can have so many meanings.

It's something that possibly should have been thought about when Meryl Streep and others from the upcoming film Suffragette posed for the cover of Time Out London's photo shoot.

The film portrays Streep as Emmeline Pankhurst, a British feminist and leader of the suffragette movie there. Though the shoot was obviously to promote the movie, it's prompted some rather negative reactions.

The Sept. 29 issue of Time Out London features Streep and her co-stars wearing T-shirts emblazoned with Pankhurst's famous quote, "I'd rather be a rebel than a slave." While Carey Mulligan, Romola Garai and Anne-Marie Duff also also appear wearing the shirt, Streep — who appears alone on the cover and rejected the term "feminism" in favor of "humanism" in the accompanying Time Out interview — is facing the bulk of criticism.



So, clearly, this quote would work fine in England, but across the pond, it has an entirely different connotation. It pretty much reflects what would have been the belief of confederate soldiers and essentially comes out in favor of slavery under that reading.



As is so often it's wont, Twitter wasn't havin' it.











Maybe the movie will be better than the promotion.
