>PLEASE DO NOT buy the BTS meal if you don't stan them" fine. guess i will buy nuggets with those new sauces

Yes


Cheesedoodlerrrr

What is "stan" supposed to mean in this context?


Beastly4k

Stems from the eminem song "stan" basically just a crazy ass fan and "stanning" isn't supposed to be a good thing but dumbass diehard fans of just about anything took the term and tried to make it their own.


SDdude81

That song is 21 years old. They're cultural appropriating from my generation by using the term Stan.


andrew-four

Jesus Christ man I didn't come here to be hurt like this, I don't need to be reminded I'm ancient.


SDdude81

I gradated High School in 2000. Just thinking about that and whatever year it is makes it painfully obvious how old I am.


Anglofsffrng

I graduated in 2001. I've taken to telling everyone I'm 60. They then tell me how awesome and young I look, and I don't feel old anymore. EDIT: Thank you internet randos for the awards.


ineffectualchameleon

Me: “wow, is he really sixty?” *doing the math while forgetting that I graduated only five years later. *


creativityonly

Uhm, sir. No, you're wrong. 2000 was like... 5 years ago.


Icy_Tension2720

My thoughts exactly!


Napol3onS0l0

Probably don’t even know the origin or cultural significance to our people. SMH.


Fingerless-Thief

So...cultural appropriation by her own definition!


Brox42

Also, when was the last time anyone actually listened to the song Stan? Being a Stan shouldn't be a good thing.


Fingerless-Thief

Yeah man. Who wants to be like the guy who forgets to send his tapes off before nose diving in to the drink?


Kintarly

This is what gets me. When did this start, exactly? Zoomers calling themselves Stans. Stan drove his wife and himself murder suicide style into a lake or whatever it was. Let's not consider that extremely troubled dude an ideal in any way.


WateredDown

well fan used to be fanatic. words change and have different subtexts in different contexts


hyphie

So that's where "stan" came from? I always assumed it was short for something (like "stand", as in you stand for your favorite character etc.). TIL.


passthechez

Ong. Good ass song tho


UltimateKingCold

My tea's gone cold I'm wondering why I, got out of bed at all

tothefive

Enjoying the meal and the cajun sauce and sweet chilli sauce is cultural appropriation guys :'( /s


Lizard_King_5

Cajun sauce is cultural appropriation, of people from Louisiana


ShockWave1146

I’m from Louisiana and I’m Cajun . Can confirm: we have no idea why we’re in this meal and we sure as hell don’t want to be lmao


ianthrax

I don't even know what a BTS meal is. Can someone explain?


Potato_Tots

McDonald’s has been doing these promotional meals where celebrities “design” their meal of choice and it becomes a special for a while For BTS (the Korean boy band) it’s just a nugget and fries meal with special sauces


fleetze

Every now and then kpop stuff pops up on my reddit feed and I have no idea what any of it means. But it seems to be popular enough it's probably just me being old


djspacepope

Remember the Backstreet Boys or One Direction? Its them, just Korean this time.


ZomNomNomBeeZ

I found myself telling some kids to get off my lawn the other day. I'd just had it fertilized, you see.


stuckinmyownass

Same. Saw a kid ride his bike up my driveway and through my front yard. Without even thinking I jumped off the couch and charged through the front door to tell him off. Only after I got back inside did I realize how naturally I slipped into my new role of neighborhood grouch.


CheezusChrust1

You have become your father


2threenine

Haha username definitely checks out


EGGranny

“Had it fertilized” is the key phrase.


motleysalty

You should see how fast cars drive through my neighborhood. It's quite tiring telling them all to slow down. I have been considering getting myself a chair to increase my productivity.


Derriere_Corsair

What up my peer!


Potato_Tots

Just simply not in their target demographic! Honestly, the only reason I know anything about kpop is because I work with twelve years olds, so I learn it whether I want to or not


javiikillz

10 piece nuggies, medium fries, medium coke, and 2 "original" sauces. You're not missing out, I can assure you that.


Karllobo

>10 piece nuggies Buy the 20 piece box you cowards.


Burningblaze199

20 what now? In my country we can only choose between 6 piece and 9 piece nuggies


Karllobo

Ah in the UK, there's a 20 piece box. I assumed that was world wide because the UK is always last in terms of new fast food stuff. https://www.mcdonalds.com/gb/en-gb/product/20-chicken-mcnuggets-sharebox.html


BaronAaldwin

20? Weakling 40 sharebox.


Karllobo

Lol imagine thinking the UK gets 40 nuggs. We only just got taco bell, that's how far behind we are fast food wise. Fucking dark ages over here.


44_tubs_of_guts

About 15 years ago I bought a 20-piece chicken nuggets on my way to my overnight shift. At like 4:00 a.m. I microwaved them and ate them all, and then at like 4:30 a.m. my guts started rumbling like a far off train, and then at like 4: 40 I barely made it out into the employee parking lot where I puked, a king-hell fountain of steaming, rancid vomit. 6 feet in diameter, this chunky, foaming rainbow of acidic, roiling barf, sizzling and shimmering in the moonlight. Little chunks of grease-meat like opals in a jeweled crown. It was, of course, noticed by the guy arriving for the next shift. He came in and I'm just lying on the floor, pale and weak. And that's the last time I ever ate at McDonald's.


plynthy

nice this is literal poetry btw


richinteriorworld

Last time I got nuggets I bought 40. I'm not obese.


N64crusader4

I just take shites denser than lead


batteryacidangel

It’s kinda a rip off. I wanted to try the sauces the other day, but 10 nuggets isn’t much. The meal is 9.99 with a large fry. I got a 20 piece with a $1 large fry deal that they have everyday on the app, with the sauces, with the $1 any size soft drink, and it was cheaper than the meal, even though I got double the nuggets.


ianthrax

I remember at one point it was less than a dollar to go from 19 to 20 nugs. Edit: meant 10 to 20 nugs. Thanks for not pointing out my fat fingers.


ShockWave1146

I think it’s just a collaboration between McDonald’s and BTS to get a meal that had something different than normal. Although I’m not too sure


Champion-raven

Not try something different, but get the BTS fanboys to buy it


kaihatsusha

All the way through this thread and I still don't know what BTS is. Before I go google, gonna assume it's a Korean pop boy band. Edit: yup.


typicalcitrus

Barbra T. Streisand


fifthtouch

the only difference is the price.


jamesbdrummer

Better than the Taco Bell IBS meal


AlwaysTheNoob

Maybe don't eat at Taco Bell if you have IBS.


big_boy_baltasar

Behind the scenes


TractionJackson

Seriously though, I gotta give a shout out to cajun food. Life wouldn't be worth living without it.


ShockWave1146

I can agree. Every year when it starts getting colder and the first gumbo of the year is cooked, that’s one of the best times of the year. And when Mardi Gras rolls around and we can eat king cake, man that shits so good


Irishperson69

Dammit now I want some king cake.


cheesybitzz

From reviews the sauce is supposedly sweet. Since when is Cajun sweet?


ShockWave1146

Oh it’s sweet? That’s odd. Normally when you think of Cajun you would think of spicy more than sweet. I would associate sweet with Asian food more than anythjng


Atticusxj

Cajun is cultural appropriation of people from new Brunswick. /s


BulkyChemistry10

"Canigetuh.....10 piece nugget meal with Cajun and Sweet Chili Sauce?"

AutopsyDrama

Is eating mcdonalds american cultural appropriation in the first place 🤔 /s


Weekendgunnitbant

Basketball was invented by a white guy and originally only played by whites. Anyone else playing it is cultural appropriation.


Echo_Oscar_Sierra

I don't get it, what's a "behind the scenes" meal?


mooseluver4life

Not sure if this is a legit question but BTS is a popular Korean boy band :)


ShockWave1146

Hey at least you were nice about it


mooseluver4life

I don't want people to be mean to me so no need to be mean to strangers


-_danglebury_-

That’s a very good outlook. 👍


fliegu

enjoying the cajun sauce is culturally appropriating being a dumbass


Winter188

Boy... I don't understand a word you just said


Echo_Oscar_Sierra

You just don't stan


StereoFood

Wtf is Stan?


afsdjkll

I think its a reference to being a fan or big fan of something/someone? And a reference to the eminem song of the same name where "stan" is super obsessed and writing letters to eminem.


Famous_Extreme8707

You’re telling me this bitch is culturally appropriating Eminem now?


_Diskreet_

And some might say Eminem appropriated black culture, have we come full circle?


Internetallstar

Some might say that... Like the man himself. From Without Me: Though I'm not the first king of controversy I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley To do black music so selfishly And use it to get myself wealthy (Hey!)


moxboltz

Here’s a concept that works


karasins

Twenty million other white rappers emerge


TFeyner

But no matter how many fish in the sea


beenherebefore24

It comes from the Eminem song "Stan". It's just someone that's a big fan of someone/ something.

Nah, i think he knew.


uniquechill

I like to refer to it as the "weaponization of imbeciles".


[deleted]

More than that, it's also that the internet will constantly show you the stupidest people on the planet, so you end up overestimating how many stupid idiots there are (*Somehow*, as high as that bar already is) Like people can go their whole lives without ever encountering this shit IRL, but if they spend their days on these kinda subs or SJW pwning compilations or whatever, perceptions get warped a *tad*.

Tegridy Farms remembers


damojr

Actually, Tegridy Farm has trouble remembering for some reason...


collinch

Yeah I’m just glad that people freaking out about sauces will not be just a R&M thing now.


Trompdoy

That's when the reputation of Rick and Morty fans was eternally smeared. That went viral. Some say to this day many people are still ashamed to say they enjoy watching Rick and Morty because of that incident.


TheNOCOYeti

Isn’t just a 10 piece McNugget meal?


Ceadol

Yeah, but it comes with two special sauces. A Sweet Chili sauce and a Cajun sauce. Neither are my cup of tea, but that's really the only thing that sets it apart from a normal 10 piece meal.


hoodwink77

Ah that famous Cajun dipping sauce of Korea 🤌 But thanks for clearing it up, I'm from the UK and had no idea what a BTS meal is. Do you guys not have sweet chilli sauce as a regular dip though? Try it with scampi.


metoPinata

what i wanna know is how are either of those related to BTS? my dumb ass thought Cajun was one of the members of bts at first


[deleted]

[удалено]


hobi_dancing

They said that specific meal is what they like to eat and they picked those two specific sauces because they heard they're not available in a lot of countries so they wanted to kinda bring something new. Now, we're talking about McDonald's here so don't expect much quality lol


qhacim

this fucking.. dude i went to mcdonalds yesterday or something and i didn't even order the bts meal, and guess what. they ran out of normal bags.


Its_Me_again21

I heard you can sell the special bag for a good amount of money

Only if it's pristine, never used though.

Yuuuup, "Eating the sauces without understanding their significance is literally cultural appropriation" If thats not a dead giveaway that she's trolling I dont know what is mate, this sub is suuuuper dumb.

Just wanted to comment cause ur avatar is the male version of mine


AarBearRAWR

They post this shit here so they can hand-wave actual appropriation, because they want to hand-wave it, and pretending this is anything but satire gives them that excuse. This sub is just far-right assholes with terrible disguises.


seluropnek

Every damn time. There's no real cringe left since it got taken over by nerds that feel threatened by "the woke agenda," so I just stay subscribed to see what fake bullshit will enrage these morons next.

MaximumWannabe

When someone unironically whines about "cultural appropriation" while praising America as a melting pot, you can safely ignore their opinion about literally everything else.


Mk22Issc

It's best to just ignore people like this in general


Seb039

When someone unironically whines about cultural appropriation its safe to ignore their opinion on everything else


AncientDominion

This IS someone using it ironically. It's fucking satire. This entire sub is people taking satire seriously and calling it cringe. The real cringe is everyone in the comments thinking this person is doing anything but joking OR that the entire caption was created by someone who is joking. Good god y'all are gullible.


Wex_Pyke

Because they want to complain about "snowflakes" and seem smart. So they stupidily don't understand satire

She must have deleted her account or changed name


pm_me_Spidey_memes

She changed her name. I think I’d be doxing if I told you it, but, based on the screenshot it would *appear* she posted in the last week, and if you were on my phone and searched the hashtag “culturalappropriation” it would pop up fairly early in the results. But to save you time, it seems she’s trolling. She doesn’t post often, but she had a “if you wore these shirts in HS you were my friend” with a bunch of emo bands. But then other videos kinda make it seem like she’s not? Idk honestly, weird account.


Mays2020plus

Or it's fake.


UraeusCurse

Is this that McDonalds shit?


Ribbidiot

Bruh girls really be callin themselves “noona” and saying “oppa” to mcdonalds workers and asking for the bts meal and say that THIS is cultural appropriation


SirTiffAlot

For real? Noona isn’t even the word girls should be using to talk to other girls so they didn’t even get that right.


stephelan

Wait so is this a McDonald’s meal? Is it hard to get? I’ve heard nothing about this outside of people selling used bags and ups on eBay.

Yes!! I didn't have high hopes but that sweet chili sauce is the first time an McD product has impressed me in over a decade.
