    Overdesign. Especially when it's trying to push you in a certain direction.

    Shit like Klarna doesn't help as it's rammed in along with payment methods.

    I had to read that twice to make sure I wasn't having a stroke. No doubt they also call Raiders, ROTLA and Aliens, Aliens 2.
    They probably enjoy AVP and Crystal Skull.

    And as if the debate on the previous page centred around Nutella on bread - there was a fried egg! A fucking fried egg with Nutella!

    The worst timeline.

    Nutella plus egg. On bread.


    Nutella ... plus egg ... on bread.


    I'm at a loss for words.

    I'm still mulling this over. I'm now thinking the fried egg should be quite runny. It'll moisten the bread and lubricate everything on the way down.

    You see the Nutella threatens to turn the whole thing into a claggy baton.

    Think about it. Eggs work well with chocolate. How else do you explain the cream egg.

    You're putting a fried egg on after spreading Nutella on bread? It would just fall right through because I still don't believe the bread would survive the Nutella spreading.

    Three Nutella wasn't spread thickly, but coverage was near total. The bread was intact. She folded/rolled the bread.

    Brexit, Trump, Coronavirus - all terrible, divisive and destructive, but have precedent and can be explained.

    But fried egg and Nutella on bread is beyond the pale - total fucking chaos. It's what they eat in that other dimension in Event Horizon. That's why the eye-ripping occurs.

    I like to drink the yolk with a Capri Sun straw and then fashion a substitute yolk from Nutella.

    BrewDog called out by previous employees. If you've ever used LinkedIn you'll be very familiar with their founder and their 'culture'.

    My youngest has 2 slices of bread on Nutella for breakfast everyday. Except for today when we had no bread, so had leftover cold pizza instead.

    A freshly baked baguette with Nutella is an awesome breakfast in France.

    All it needed was a decent response but instead Brewdog just added fuel to the fire which made them look like arseholes.

    I logged onto linkedin for the first time in a while yesterday and actually looked at my feed rather than just my messages.

    Was it always just an even more unbearable version of facebook? Not only have you got everyone sharing the same four shit memes they are also sharing really boring posts about achieving success, mainly from that James guy who runs Bredog.

    Its absolutely fucking awful, jesus.

    "That person gave me 10p to catch the bus to work. I had to conduct an interview that day, and that person walked in. I gave them the job on the spot and they cried because now they were able to feed their children.

    Aren't I fucking great?"

    True. I don't really know much about Brewdog but I hope my local brewery Tiny Rebel isn't this shit.

    Wychwood Brewery is within staggering distance of my house and they seem to be able to tread the line between wacky marketing and not being wankers.

    I had some Brew Dog a few weeks ago. Felt like shit for over half a week.

    I say some, it was 12 cans. That may be why.

    Still though. Shit.

    Doesn't sound like you just had a dog, sounds like you drank the whole kennel.

    I think everyone I know involved in pubs has considered Brewdog villains for years. Mainly for their aggressive ultra-corporate business practices and Apprentice-level twattishness.

    That they’re wrong uns as well is no surprise at all.

    They’re the ones who made interview candidates pitch ideas in competition with each other over months, no one got hired but they used their ideas, right

    That's not unusual sadly, I used to work for a pitch company, and some unscrupulous companies would get several companies to pitch for them, then end up developing the idea internally.
