The New York Knicks have an interesting history, with so many impressive performances over the decades that it’s hard to keep count. However, since 2000, they’ve struggled to regain that former glory, other than a brief success in 2012-2013. One former Knicks legend truly believes that it’s going to be their year once again, though…
It seemed like a repeat of the disappointing 2010 catastrophe, when the Knicks couldn’t get anywhere close to landing LeBron James or any of the other top stars of the year… This year was no different, as they cleared cap space for two maximum salary players, only to watch them all head somewhere else. Even Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, who wanted to be in New York, decided they wanted to be Nets instead. However, there is one former Knicks legend who believes it’s going to be their year regardless, and that they just have to work with what they’ve got, without going after any of the big shots.
During the 1990s, John Starks rose to fame playing for the New York Knicks. It’s during his time with the team that he managed to land one of the most famous plays in NBA history… A play they simply called, “The Dunk.” In fact, during his time with the team, Starks would prove himself to be one of their most valuable players, winning several awards to add to his trophy cabinet. So, you could say he knows a thing or two about the team and the passion that has never really dwindled, despite disappointing results.
Starks is adamant that the Knicks are going to turn some heads this year, despite not landing any of the big players. We will just have to wait and see…
45 Instances That Companies Had Such a Witty Comeback, the Internet Just Had to Share It
It’s no secret that businesses are always in a state of rivalry — battling for market share and competing for limited resources, clients, and ideas. When it comes to social media though, not all businesses are created equal. Some companies extend that rivalry to social media, and we love to see it. From Wendy’s to Samsung, we’ve put together a list of the wittiest comebacks companies have made.
Python Has No Chill
We always knew that Python and Java were rivals. However, what happens when they get involved in an epic Twitter banter? Don’t you want to know? We would like to know too. Fortunately, in this screenshot, we now know which software company would win this social media battle.
Here, we can see that Java attempted to say something, but their rival Python had something else to say. Python’s epic comeback was so brutal, that we wonder if Java has recovered from it or not!
GameStop Being Savage
GameStop is the world’s largest video game retailer and trade-in destination, but it seems that the company provides another service — totally shutting down haters in an epic way.
What happened was that someone started complaining about how their Nintendo Wii console is basically useless, and that they would want to trade it for only $0.01. However, in turn of events, GameStop declared that they could sell the Wii for cheaper than this guy!
PETA vs. Old Bay Seasoning
Apparently, animal rights organization PETA and Old Bay Seasoning have been having a billboard battle in Maryland. We all know that the PETA organization is against any type of animal cruelty. In the first billboard, we can see that they are encouraging people to go vegan and not eat meat.
However, Old Bay Seasoning thought it was the perfect time to make a witty statement. So, they trolled PETA with another billboard. Not only did their billboard make fun of PETA’s, but they also got to endorse their product.
Facebook Getting Trolled
Facebook recently changed its company name to “Meta,” resulting in a variety of hilarious memes and examples of trolling from different social media handles. Many companies, however, also took this opportunity to come up with their own comebacks — some of them so hilarious that it’s difficult to ignore them.
For example, this migraine app boldly declared that Facebook got its inspiration from its app logo. Honestly, we do kind of see the similarity there. We wonder what Facebook has to say about this!
Mess With the Bull…
We have all seen posts about how Wendy’s social media pages are filled with witty replies or hilarious trolling directed at certain individuals. Most of the time, their targets are other fast-food competitors such as KFC, Burger King, and Chick-fil-A.
However, sometimes, their haters get trolled too. Just like in this case! Wendy’s tried to make a joke, but someone pointed out how unfunny they are nowadays. So, Wendy’s clapped back with a savage response!
Chipotle Going All Out
We know we’re talking about company comebacks, but what about a broken-hearted ex’s comebacks? Whoever is handling Chipotle’s social media handle must have had a horrible breakup recently.
Otherwise, why would this person think of going to that extent just to watch their ex’s story? Apparently, this person watched their ex’s story from Chipotle’s official social media account. This is hilarious on so many levels. However, when we think about it, it’s also kind of sad.
Back 4 Blood vs. KFC Gaming
Did you know fast-food chain KFC has its own gaming console? We didn’t know either. Apparently, KFC Gaming thought that the video game Back 4 Blood was simply a copy of another game called Left 4 Dead.
This forced Back 4 Blood to come up with their own comeback too. It turns out that both games were actually created by Turtle Rock Studios. The gaming studio decided to hit KFC right where it will hurt most. We are just hoping that KFC is alright after this burn.
UNO Wasn’t Ready
We have all heard of UNO. In fact, most of us played this family card game quite often. Although the card game, Exploding Kittens, isn’t quite as popular as UNO, it’s becoming a top competitor in the card game market.
So, when these two rivals throw shade at each other, it’s actually quite fun to lay back and enjoy their banter. In this post, UNO probably wanted to take a dig at Exploding Kittens. Unfortunately, they ended up getting brutally trolled instead.
An Absolute Classic
Most social media users love Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit. However, the fact that these media companies love one another is also pretty interesting. What started off as an ordinary greeting from Twitter’s official account resulted in this comment by Reddit.
Reddit responded to Instagram’s post by asking if the one managing the Instagram handle was okay or not. Hilarious, right? It’s easy to forget that behind these large companies are teams of employees who must manage the company’s social media accounts. It’s nice to see them get a bit of personal attention!
Originality at Its Finest
Many people wonder how can a massive company like Facebook was able to change its logo and name so easily. It seems almost impossible! So, when a streaming platform called Movies Anywhere expressed their concern over how similar their logo was to Facebook’s new logo, we were honestly not surprised.
While we understand that both logos resemble the mathematical symbol which represents infinity, the two logos look suspiciously similar. That said, it doesn’t seem fair for these companies to bully Facebook over this! Don’t you agree?
Burger King Has No Chill
Well, we all know that McDonald’s is famous for its burgers and fries. However, they’re also famous for another thing. They are renowned for their clown character and restaurant mascot — Ronald McDonald.
We kind of love how Burger King subtly shaded McDonald’s indirectly by bringing up the famous clown in their advertisement. It’s quite funny to see how Burger King’s recruitment poster says that applicants should work for them rather than for clowns. We all know who they’re referring to…
In a tweet, Universal Orlando Resort decided to poke fun at the closure of the NBA Experience at Disney Springs. The tweet inspired this retaliation from an account with a username based on a character from the ride Journey Into Imagination at Disney World’s Epcot theme park.
The tweet alluded to the fact that Universal Orlando Resort once had its very own NBA-themed attraction called NBA City, which closed in 2015. Because Journey Into Imagination was updated after 1998, and the Dreamfinder character was removed, Universal Orlando Resort had the ultimate say.
Take a Hint, Chick-fil-A
While many people are disappointed that Chick-fil-A restaurants are closed on Sundays, McDonald’s seems to use this to their advantage. This McDonald’s restaurant sign pokes fun at the restaurant’s unique working hours.
Here, they are making fun of Chick-fil-A for being closed on Sunday by reminding customers that they are open. However, we agree with another commenter when they said that Chick-fil-A probably isn’t too worried. Despite a limited amount of working hours, Chick-fil-A continues to be one of the largest fast-food chains in the U.S.
Twitter vs. Reddit
Sometimes, it doesn’t take a lot of words to roast someone. Here, we can see that Twitter just announced that they’re introducing a voting system to understand which replies people find relevant in a conversation.
However, this announcement probably hit too close to home for Reddit. After all, the “Upvote” feature is a classic feature on Reddit. That said, Reddit didn’t come up with the idea of the Upvote. Online news aggregator, Digg, was doing it before them as well as others.
Got to Love Sports Rivalries
As long as there are sports teams, there will be rivalries too. In this post, for instance, we can see that these two ice hockey teams are trolling each other with a series of snarky tweets.
The Montreal Canadiens bragged that they would still have more Stanley Cups than their rival, even if they lost that game. The Tampa Bay Lightning players were having none of it. They clapped back with something better — they took a dig at the Canadiens by implying how their last Stanley Cup was in the 90s.
Minecraft vs. Roblox
Markus Persson, or Notch as he calls himself, is one of the biggest video game designers and programmers. He’s famous for creating popular video game Minecraft — and apparently — for insulting gaming platforms like Roblox.
For instance, in this post, we can see that Notch tried to troll Roblox about the quality of their games. Feeling attacked, Roblox had to respond. In the end, it was pretty hilarious to see how Notch accepted their defeat because of so many autocorrect fails!
Seattle Kraken Get a New Name
Those familiar with ice hockey are familiar with these two names: The New Jersey Devils and the Seattle Kraken. The New Jersey Devils is an ice hockey team based in Newark, New Jersey while the Seattle Kraken is one of Washington state’s newest ice hockey teams.
While the New Jersey Devils is quite an old name in the National Hockey League, the Seattle Kraken is relatively new. Naturally, the New Jersey Devils didn’t waste an opportunity to tease the new team when they got their sea monster-inspired name.
The epic battle between Twitter and Reddit continued when Reddit replied to Twitter’s post with a simple “Sure, Jan.” Anybody familiar with The Brady Bunch would know why this comment was so snarky.
This quote comes from A Very Brady Movie, in which Jan lies to her sister about having a boyfriend. Knowing that her sister is lying, Marcia dismissively says, “Sure, Jan.” In recent years, the quote has been used as a sarcastic way to say that someone is obviously lying.
When it comes to computer software companies, we are all quite familiar with Microsoft. Some of us are also familiar with KDE. KDE is a software community that develops free and open-source software all over the world.
In this epic battle of Twitter snark, Microsoft boasted about their latest development and product release. KDE, however, decided to share their apparent disappointment with Microsoft’s underwhelming release. We’re here for that sass!
A Convo Between Friends
This next post is equally wholesome and funny. It seems that there aren’t any hard feelings between these two large corporations north of the border.
Here, in the post, we can see that McDonald’s is announcing that they will introduce something big. So, Walmart questioned how big that something is. McDonald’s wittily replied that it would be as big as Walmart’s Supercenter. Walmart agreed that it would indeed be big!
Netflix India and Disney+Hotstar India
Netflix India and Disney+Hotstar India are very popular streaming services in India. So, it’s pretty evident that they are each other’s competitors too. Here, we get to see them taking a dig at each other. First, we start with Netflix India.
In the post, Netflix India said that they were dropping some light-hearted shows for low-key Wednesdays. In their response, Disney+Hotstar saw the perfect opportunity to brag about how Wednesdays already sorted thanks to Loki — one of their shows.
Chick-fil-A Has a Comeback This Time
It seems that McDonald’s has made it a point to tease Chick-fil-A for closing their restaurants on Sunday. This picture shows McDonald’s poking fun at Chick-fil-A with a board that says, “We sell crispy chicken sandwiches on Sundays.”
This time, however, Chick-fil-A had an equally snarky comeback! Funnily enough, they pointed out McDonald’s biggest flaw — the fact that their ice-cream machine never seems to be working, unlike Chick-fil-A’s machines.
Don’t Mess With Wendy’s
We already know that Wendy’s is great at making puns! Well, they’re back at it again with this clever tweet. In this post, we see that Wendy’s attempted to make a joke at their own expense.
Somebody, however, was not entirely amused with the joke. They replied that they didn’t ask for that anecdote. Instead of getting demotivated, Wendy’s came up with the perfect witty comeback in this case. Wendy’s responded to the troller with this epic tweet.
Eureka Throwing Shade at Dyson
In this episode of “Battles between Vacuums,” we can clearly say that this Eureka model won. We think most people would agree after reading the label plastered on this vacuum cleaner!
On the label, Eureka declared that their vacuums clean carpets better than vacuums by the Dyson brand. Not only that, but they also declared that they do a better job at a third of the price when compared to a Dyson vacuum cleaner! That’s some good advertisement. Don’t you think?
“We Are a Restaurant”
Did you think we were done with Wendy’s? Well, no. Wendy’s doesn’t just make great hamburgers, they also serve up some of the wittiest comebacks in social media. It seems that they are rarely running out of snarky comments.
For instance, we love how they gave a hilarious reply to this random person on Twitter. What happened was that this person asked Wendy’s to be their girlfriend. Well, we can clearly from the post what Wendy’s had to say about that. We think the reply was just perfect for that strange question.
SafeMoon’s Wittiest Reply So Far
It’s entertaining to see how sarcastic cryptocurrency company, SafeMoon, has been in their response to fellow cryptocurrency company, Binance Exchange. In this post, we can see that Binance was asking their followers to guess the position of Bitcoin.
However, SafeMoon saw the perfect opportunity to make a sarcastic comment in the comment section. They stated that Bitcoin was at number two. By leaving that comment, we are guessing SafeMoon is implying that they are number one. Well played, SafeMoon!
In Christiansburg, Virginia there seems to be a sign fight on North Franklin Street, between a music store and a shoe store. The fight started with Bridge Kaldro Music asking Super Shoes if they wanted to start a sign war.
Super Shoes replied that their shoe strings were stronger than Kaldro’s guitar strings. Thankfully doesn’t seem to be any real hostility between the retailers. The business owners have been each other’s neighbors for 15 years, and they are probably going to keep having fun with their signs.
There are times when you read a social media post that is just so ridiculous that you just have to laugh. Wendy’s went a step further and called out this poster over his hilarious “suggestion” to the fast-food chain.
We hope that this poster is aware that hamburgers don’t simply grow on vines, and that a circle- shaped patty of meat is just as “artificial” as a square-shaped one. We love this super sarcastic response to what is truly a laughable request!
The Burn, Though
This next one is just the most epic burn we have ever seen. In this post, Apple Music asks its followers what they have been listening to recently. Naturally, there were many replies. However, we absolutely didn’t expect Samsung to comment there.
On top of that, what Samsung left as a comment was just too epic to be forgotten or ignored. Samsung commented on Apple Music’s post saying that they are listening to “Spotify.” Boom, roasted!
This next post is more of state wars than company wars. Instead of companies, the official social media pages of two states trolled each other. In the post, we can see that Delaware jokingly announced that New Jersey and Delaware would be merged into one state named “New Delaware.”
We are guessing New Jersey wasn’t too impressed with that idea, so they came up with an epic reply – they shared the post with a simple “Delete your account.” A bit rude, but still a good comeback!
Humor at its Best
In this next post, we can see how even the Northeastern Ohio Regional Sewer District had something to say about the giant container ship that was blocking the Suez Canal. In response to the news about the blocked waterway, someone shared a meme of a ship in their toilet!
However, the North East Ohio Regional Sewer District left a really funny comment in that post. Good to see that some people were able to find humor in the situation.
PlayStation vs. Bandai Namco
This next post is pretty hilarious. We are all familiar with the PlayStation gaming console. However, not many of us know Bandai Namco. Apparently, it’s a video game company too. Previously they were known as Namco Bandai but later changed their name to Bandai Namco.
PlayStation U.K. decided to troll Bandai Namco over the name change by switching the first letters of their new name. Bandai Namco wasn’t very thrilled about it, though!
DuckDuckGo-ing for Google
DuckDuckGo really went for Google in this post. In their post, they wrote about how Google finally revealed just how much personal data they store from Chrome and the Google app users.
They also said that spying on users has nothing to do with building a great web browser or search engine. However, they came up with the best line when they said they would know more about it as their app is both a great web browser and a great search engine. Clever promotion!
Let’s move from company battles for now and talk about city battles. In this post, two cities in Washington state decided to engage in an epic Twitter battle. The city of Kent first started the battle when they shared a meme alluding to the city of Tacoma’s apparent bad smell.
Many were not impressed by it, so the City of Kent came up with another post explaining the meme. Unimpressed with this “non-apology”, the City of Tacoma gave this cold reply.
Between No Name and Kraft
Canada’s largest food retailer sells a line of generic brand products called No Name. No Name decided to jokingly share this caption above a picture of one of their honey products, assuring customers that the honey wasn’t made by bears, despite the bear-shaped bottle.
In response, Kraft Foods posted that they were relieved and approved of the message. No Name decided to troll Kraft Foods (which also features bears on the packaging of their product) by asking if bears were involved in the production of their peanut butter.
Avanti West Coast is a train operating company in the United Kingdom. This post is about an unofficial event in the U.K. known as the “World Cup of Train Operators” where various British rail companies compete against one another.
Avanti West Coast decided to use the funny description of their logo in order to encourage voters to choose them. We think it’s wholesome and clever at the same time. We also think that “orangeyred” should be considered a real color.
Weetabix & Heinz vs. the World
So, here is what happened: Weetabix, a breakfast cereal company, collaborated with Heinz to develop this new idea of “beans on Weetabix.” Well, Domino’s Pizza U.K. was not quite impressed with that idea.
They decided to throw shade at Weetabix by stating how this combination was worse than pineapple on pizza. Weetabix replied to that by saying how they are too scared to ask the verdict on pineapple on Weetabix. So, Dominos came up with just the perfect comeback by saying that it would be better than beans, at least.
Order From McDonald’s
The social media pages of companies can sometimes share some touching messages. Burger King decided to release a post asking diners to support their local eateries. While the message was very thoughtful and kind, they did add a bit of snark by saying “we never thought we’d be saying this either.”
This clever post shows that there isn’t that much animosity between these dining establishments. The message reflects very well on Burger King, and may inspire diners to choose the restaurant next time they get a craving for fast food.
Samsung Being Savage
We all know that Samsung and Apple are each other’s competitors. So, naturally, they clash here and there. This photo, however, is just epic in every single way. Samsung’s post was directed at for not including a power adapter with their pricey iPhone 12.
We actually love how simple the photo is. It consists of a power adapter only! We also love how the caption mentions the “charger” first. We bet the people working for Apple took some notes after seeing this simple, yet powerful, post.
IGN Knows How to Play the Game
IGN is a video game and entertainment media website. The site is popular for its in-depth video game reviews and coverage of the latest news in the video game industry. So, when it came to them reviewing EA Sport’s FIFA video, IGN didn’t hold back.
Instead, they decided to troll the video game. They said that because EA Sports hadn’t really changed FIFA on Switch for past two years, they would also recycle the same material when it came to their review of the video game. Pretty fair, right?
Burger King’s Jab at McDonald’s
We are back again with another battle between Burger King and McDonald’s. Their epic trolling battle seems to be never-ending, doesn’t it? This time, Burger King took a jab at McDonald’s.
This time, they decided to drag tennis champion Rafael Nadal into their social media war. When he played against someone with a similar name to McDonald’s, Burger King commented by posting a snapshot of it on Twitter and saying that he might be hungry after that. It’s pretty clear who they were trolling.
War of Pies
The following Twitter feud was between two popular restaurant chains: O’Charley’s and Waffle House. The battle began when O’Charley’s pointed out that they serve both waffles and pie, and that Waffle House doesn’t have pie on their menus.
Wanting to defend their good name, Waffle House took to Twitter to assure customers that they do indeed have pie. Well, we know who had the last laugh, don’t we? We are pretty sure Waffle House has won this Twitter battle.
Where is Skyrim?
Bethesda is a video game publisher, while Twitch and Intel Gaming are video game streaming services. In this post, we can see Bethesda getting trolled by the social media pages of Twitch and Intel Gaming.
Apparently, Bethesda asked their Twitter followers if there was anything new. Twitch and Intel Gaming decided to casually throw some shade at Bethesda saying that they were just waiting for them to release the highly-anticipated video game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Apparently Bethesda was taking too long to release the game!
Your Move, Chick-fil-A
Well, here we go again. After so many companies decided to take a jab at Chick-fil-A for keeping their restaurant closed on Sundays, fast-food chain Nando’s got in on the fun by making some jokes about the restaurant as well.
The restaurant chain erected signs stating that not only were they open-minded, but that they are open on Sundays as well! It’s pretty clear who they are taking a jab at.
A Good Comeback
Did you think that Kraft would be able to mercilessly troll Facebook, and that Facebook would just let it happen? Facebook, of course, had to come up with some comments too. This time, the comment came from the newly named Meta, though!
When teased about their new name and logo, Facebook gave the wittiest reply possible. We love the wordplay and pasta pun directed at Kraft. This was what we expected from Facebook, just enough wit to get us through our day.
