Writers, gather your odes and every piece of literature with a discernible, vitalizing, beautiful source of inspiration.
'Ye penned “The McDonalds Man” for Boys Don't Cry, the magazine accompanying Frank Ocean's new album Blonde. McDonalds read it and shot the rapper a reply.

The pure shade of a drunchies giant like Micky D's calling Kanye West a fan and then applauding his “creativity” is juicier than any single item on their predominantly beige menu.
More of this, please.
