Wake N’ Blog For February 3rd: To Be Fair, It Was Wendy’s Chili And That Stuff Tastes Like Butt

wake-n-blogWake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s morning link dump. If it’s a temporary lull, why am I bored right out of my skull? Man, I’m dressin’ sharp and feelin’ dull. We’re always looking for tips and suggestions on how to half-ass our way through a blog day, so lemme know.

• After crashing his lumber truck into a Massachusetts home, driver Eric Gremm alleges that he passed out after choking on some Wendy’s chili which forced him to pass out. After losing consciousness, Gremm’s truck veered off the road and struck the home of a 59-year-old who had to be taken to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.  I guess the ads are right, you know when it’s real. Real crappy food. Nah, I’m just kidding – Wendy’s is alright. I’m sure that plug will get me lots of free Wendy’s now. [MSNBC/AP]
