Pusha T says he didn't get paid enough for writing iconic McDonald's jingle. So he made a diss track with Arby's.

Pusha T wrote McDonald's now-famous jingle in the early 2000s while trying to make it as an up-and-coming rapper, he claimed in a recent interview, but he says he didn't get paid enough for it. Two decades later, he just dropped a diss track revealing that - ba da ba ba ba - he's still not lovin' it.

 

On Monday, Pusha T teamed up with one of McDonald's competitors to release "Spicy Fish Diss Track." The 1:15-minute song, which had racked up more than 3.8 million views on his Twitter account as of Tuesday morning, hypes Arby's new Spicy Fish Sandwich while attacking the McDonald's classic Filet-O-Fish.

 

"I'm the reason the whole world love it, now I gotta crush it," Pusha T raps before comparing the McDonald's fish sandwich to feces. "You should be disgusted. How dare you sell a square fish asking us to trust it. A half slice of cheese, Mickey Ds on a budget?"

Gotta say this shocks me a bit.

If it was America I wouldn't be surprised at all, however Canada ?

 

I know no society is perfect, however as I have stated before, yours is one of the more enlightened on this planet

If it wasn't Pepper Spray, it would have been one of those plastic knives you get at KFC....but he probably couldn't get it out of the plastic wrap.....

Not sure if everyone has heard, but the two kids from Ft. St. John who were the subject of an Amber Alert this weekend, have been found in Kenora, Ontario.

 

Both kids and their mom are fine. The father has been arrested, but not charged as of yet:

Honestly, I don't know why any comedian takes that gig any more....you can't say an effing thing to that crowd without someone getting offended....and if the crowd doesn't do or say anything, you can guarantee Twitter will....

 

I haven't watched any awards show for a couple of decades now. I honestly DGAF what the Academy thinks...anyone who honestly believes that Shakespeare in Love is a better picture than Saving Private Ryan is an idiot anyway....

Or that Goodfellas or Pulp Fiction weren't the best movies in those years.

 

I honestly couldn't care less about rich self entitled &^@#s giving themselves awards like they mean a damn thing worth more than a white dried up dog turd.

Yes...I was trying to recall what Shawshank went against and whether it won..was fairly sure didn't.  

 

Shawshank is the best movie ever made imo. 

 

Big Lebwoski a close 2nd.

Fun fact - In the book "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" the character Andy Dufresne was short, a little pudgy with small hands. The exact opposite of Tim Robbins who played him in the movie.

Will is a clown.

Performing at an award show for clowns. 

I think Kathy Griffin pointed out the seriousness of what he did:

“Let me tell you something,” Griffin tweeted, “it’s a very bad practice to walk up on stage and physically assault a Comedian. Now we all have to worry about who wants to be the next Will Smith in comedy clubs and theaters.”

The flipside to this is: if a comedian needs to rely on saying hurtful things about someone (or some people) in order to get a cheap laugh at the person (or people's) emotional/physical/psychological expense, then maybe they should reconsider whether or not their "routine" is truly fit for the stage.

Perhaps.  But then you get into the issue of what is 'offensive'.   And maybe people who take exception to a 'joke' should restrict themselves to booing.

Except I'm not talking about offensive.  CR took a jab at a person's medical condition - one that she had no desire or control in getting, and yet has bravely shared with the public - as if it was some sort of joke material.  It'd be like if a comedian were to make fun of someone else's loved one's cancer or genetics-based disease on the grandest stage.  That's hurtful, and that is not acceptable as "comedy".  And if any society should somehow deem it as acceptable, I don't want to be a part of this society.

And if you're going to make cracks about someone's medical condition in order to get cheap laughs then you're going to have to reap the consequences of your actions. Chris Rock has made several distasteful 'jokes' about the Smiths in the past and gotten away with it....sooner or later....and last night was later....you're going to have to take some responsibility for it..I'm on Team Smith for this. Make a distasteful joke at the expense of a loved one and there should be consequences.... Chris Rock was NOT funny, he was a pig and got what he deserved. The fact that he's not pressing charges makes it obvious that he KNOWS he crossed the line big time.

Seems to me you are talking about being offended.
