Love the quote too:

“They even grew their beards out, they looked the part. It’s disgusting see the lengths these corporate pigs go to keep us down”

Actually heard a rumour a few weeks ago (via Social Media) but at the time it was dismissed as being false. Got this URL sent to me this morning and had to post it!

How fucking embarrassing .

Fancy openly admitting that the story behind the brand was an influence in the judging.

"They looked the part...." Holy shit.

Well, it is a satire website so I doubt the veracity of the story. But it was a bloody funny read anyway.

What is up with all these satire websites? money spinners in confusing the public and twisting stories to get them to go viral. Hopefully the long term benefit of this shit is that the public becomes more dilligent when considering the credibility of what they are reading to avoid the embarassing feeling of being led-on by bullshit

Go deeper Taylor, go deeper!
