Feed-them-to-lions

roads2roam arena full population“Feed them to the lions” captures the rogues, villains and companies that we have taken a special exception to by us or fellow Roamans.

They usually are heinous acts but being petulant characters, we reserve the right to be petty and vindictive. We are Emperors afterall.

They are ones that we feel need the ultimate virtual disposition for their wrong doings: throwing them to the our lions so we can take delight in them being eaten alive by our hungry big cats.

GO LIONS !

Prior judgments:

  • Things that go bump in the night

    Normally we give a “Feed them to the Lions” verdict after we have carefully weighed up the evidence of a situation brought to our attention but in this case, we are declaring it upfront with United and their involuntary bumping policy or as they call it, “involuntary boarding denial”. ‘Involuntary boarding’, my imperial arse.

  • Not responsible for broken windshields? Oh yes you are..

    Driving home from work, I noted a truck ahead of me which had a warning sign on it. Being curious I came up close to read what it said Big letters WARNING. Smaller letters “STAY BACK 200 FT” with “NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BROKEN WINDSHIELDS”. However, the stupidity is that you’d need to be closer  that 200 […]

  • He ain’t nothing but a hound dog

    Some people deserve to get named and shamed. Ahmed Mohammed is one such shyster. NBC run a story with video clip of his overcharging tourist for hot dogs – up to $30 in some cases – and short changing others. To make it worse, he is doing this outside the World Trade Center.
