What People are Saying About the Latest Headlines

If Orlando Bloom and Justin Beiber were drowning, what kind of sandwich would you make?

With the recent brawl between these two Hollywood hotties, we had to know how people felt. If you are unfamiliar about the latest scandal, read about it here. Our hope was that some brave hero would rip off their shirt to reveal a large “S” across their chest as they answered with “a sandwich??? I wouldn’t be able to eat when there is danger afoot! Of course I would save them!” However, that didn’t happen. On the contrary, everyone couldn’t wait to divulge their favorite lunch choices. “I would have my usual: turkey on wheat, mayo, lettuce, and a little bit of mustard,” said one girl without hesitation. We learned a lot about the morality of the human race with this one question. Apparently, most people would rather dine on their delicatessen favorite before saving two of America’s sweethearts. Shame on you.
