Complaint Corner

It wouldn’t be the age of the internet if we did have a few complaints in the community. So what are we griping about this week?

Schezuan Sauce:  So there was great debacle with the Rick and Morty and McDonald’s Schezuan Sauce event that occurred over the last weekend.  While Mulan was an amazing movie and Rick and Morty is a great and hilarious show.  Have we as a society got nothing going for our lives that we are going to fight and cry and complain over Schezuan Sauce with some artwork over it?  To be honest, I would hate to see what that sauce congealed into, after it had been sitting in some box and forgotten about for years.
