When MTV and BET faked Twitter hackings for publicity, Denny’s scored big by tweeting, “OMG we hacked ourselves because it’s the cool thing to do!

On Monday, Denny’s attempted to capitalize on the NSA snooping scandal with this tweet:


Creepy? True? A a social media Grand Slam? Twitter users weigh in:

    I crave a computer that’s not 20 years old.

    • pinkelephant22

      LOL…. there was likely some strategy behind using a 20 yr old computer but I can’t determine yet what that might be.

      • RblDiver

        My assumption: They KNOW you want the Grand Slam, so they don’t need a fancy computer!

    • Moosejaw50

      At least they scrubbed the Compaq emblems off of the hardware.

      • Canadian in USA

        Scrubbed? I thought it was buried under that grime! 😀

    • GaryTheBrave

      That’s government low-bid.

    • mapache

      My guess is that NSA could not get anything off that old computer. The new computer geeks would not understand the 5″ floppy disk!

    Straight from the recycling pile. Message?

  • CatHerder

    Might as well laugh, we’re not getting anywhere crying.

  • Jack Deth

    Now THAT’S advertising!

  • http://www.common2cents.org/ Soulphoenix

    Straight out of the new (updated) pamphlet “How to invite an IRS/NSA audit.” GREAT advertising, though!

  • lainer51

    the whiny libs will start putting its HATE on for Denny’s ….

    • SJ’s Dad

      . . . you mean like how the computer MUST be RAAAaaacist because it’s in a Denny’s ad?

      • Stephen K

        Well, it is (kind of) white. Must be a dog whistle in their someplace.

  • Spinmamma

    I love my fellow Americans!! Always able to find the humor in the most depressing circumstances.

    • camnpat

      I can assure you it is a very special quality of Americans not easily found in other places, as well as jumping to help their fellow men at a time of disaster whether foreign or domestic.

  • RblDiver

    Hrm, I wonder what a Chik-Fil-A sandwich with Dennys pancakes for buns’d taste like…make it happen you two!

    • WisconsinPatriot

      Why not a chicken and waffles combo???

      • GaryTheBrave

        WE HAVE A WINNER! ! ;-D

      • Ralph_Gizzip

        At 3:00 AM!

        • WisconsinPatriot

          OK but get me really drunk first….

    • WisconsinPatriot

      Denny Fil-A?
      Call it a Hat Trick……?
      Gotta go there……they will be mercilessly harassed and audited and God knows what else.

  • peteee363

    does denny’s know where Obama’s records are?

  • michael s

    Denny’s was founded on racism.Denny’s should be boycotted.

    • Corey Dennison

      BAM! mikey s. leads with the race card!

      Anyone else here shocked?

    • TocksNedlog

      As opposed to your opinions, which are founded upon total bullsh*t.

      • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

        Unforch, he’s partially right… Remember “SAMBO’S?” After the boycotts and the name change, business is BOOMING! BTW, I’m NOT playing the “race Card,” I’m pointing out an historical fact. #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D} True Story.

        • TocksNedlog

          Uh, NO, he isn’t ‘right’ at all.
          Denny’s & Sambo’s are two completely separate entities.

          • Zane Henry

            Yup, Denny’s bought all of Sambo’s buildings and renamed them or closed them, if they were in proximity to an existing Denny’s.

          • TocksNedlog

            Exactly. They bought some of the company’s assets, not the company itself.
            michael s is completely full of “s”.

          • michael s


          • TocksNedlog

            You were wrong.

          • Corey Dennison

            Umm…reading is FUNdamental, Michael. Try and read what Zane wrote, only try for comprehension this time.

    • Marjorie

      Wow! Can we start a new thread with this unique and insightful idea?

    • JohnFLob

      Stock cars, Formula 1, Indy ?

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    That;s a GRAND SLAM if I ever saw one! Great work @DennysDiner! I need to patronize you people more often! #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}
