Andrew Yang Roasted For Picking Times Square As His Favorite Subway Station

The internet hasn't been kind to Andrew Yang of late. But it's really his own fault. The failed presidential candidate turned New York mayoral candidate has been gunning for the approval of the city's residents. It's normal for candidates to suck up to voters, but if you ask New Yorkers, most of them will say he's been doing it wrong.

His first New York-related offense? Calling a bougie Midtown deli a bodega. For those who aren't aware, a bodega is the city's version of a convenience/corner store. They're not shining delicatessens filled with matcha and gleaming glass. Most of them have boast cats, cheap beer and sandwiches, and are run by locals from Yemen, the Dominican Republic, or Puerto Rico. 

He's also managed to receive scorn for giving away the family dog, being much, much worse at basketball than Adam Sandler,and alienating Muslim residents with some seriously short-sighted comments about the war in Israel. Today, however, the internet is up in arms over the third episode of Ziwe's satirical interview show on Showtime. In the episode, Ziwe chats with Yang about billionaires, race, politics, music - and his favorite New York City subway station. Unfortunately for Yang, he chose the station closest to his home: Times Square. 

Anyone who knows anything about New Yorkers should know that many of us would rather die that find ourselves even blocks away from the tourist trap filled with wide-eyed out of towners, chain restaurants, and a serious lack of public restrooms. To natives or longtime residents, Yang's choice was more proof that he's out of touch with the city. And, as usual, New Yorkers on Twitter had a lot to say about the matter.

Twitter Thread: People Recall Chain Restaurants They Thought Were Super Fancy As Kids

Everyone loves to mock Olive Garden for their iconic breadsticks and overcooked, highly caloric pasta dishes, but do you remember being a kid, twitching with excitement in the backseat of your parents' minivan on the way to a fancy evening at the local Olive Garden, or Sizzler, or TGI Friday's? We've all got that one place we remember feeling like a decadent treat when we were kids, but seem pretty underwhelming now as adults. @johnbcrist asked the people of Twitter to share the spots they used to think were super glamorous, and the replies made us feel pretty damn nostalgic. Check out some highlights we grabbed from the amusing thread.

Unfortunately for service industry employees everywhere, Karens have decided not to take any days off during the pandemic. In fact, it seems that they've even ramped up their antics, according to this amusing Twitter thread written by a guy observing the sheer panic taking place at an Olive Garden in Cranberry, Pennsylvania on Mother's Day. Who knew soup, salad, and breadsticks warranted screaming at minimum-wage restaurant employees!

Attention: That Bot-Written Olive Garden Ad Is Actually A Meme

We've seen bot-generated chapters of Harry Potter and Seinfeld episodes, so when we first saw Keaton Patti's bot-written Olive Garden commercial, we didn't bat an eye. The dialogue is hilariously and perfectly off, it's so bad it seems real. Alas, some (many) things on the internet are just too good to be true, and our friends at Gizmodo made us meme freaks feel pretty frickin' dumb.

It turns out that Mr. Patti, a writer who has contributed to the New Yorker, and, tellingly, The Onion, has written these fake masterpieces before. He's not the only one. The meme is apparently abundant on Twitter. The fact that even bigger media outlets fell for us makes it a little better, but we still have to hand it to these memers for their dedication and creativity.
