Well done. I am truly proud of you.
Patrons old and young have joined the queues at IKEA’s two restaurants in Singapore to enjoy the 10-cent meatball promotion that is only on today.
This comes after the home furnishing retailer announced yesterday that the meatballs are back on the menu after DNA test results confirmed that there was no horsemeat in them.
The line at IKEA’s Alexandra outlet – the restaurant is on the second floor – spilled onto the pedestrian overhead bridge leading to Anchorpoint mall opposite the road, but by 2.30pm, the queue was redirected into the building and down past the toilets on the second floor.
An estimated 100 people were in the queue then.So, why did my fellow countrymen swarm IKEA? Was it because the meatballs were extra delicious? Was it because they had particular nutritive value? Was there some sort of community spirit present at the location?
When inSing News talked to those in the line, many said they were there especially for the promotion.
Eddie Wong, 54, a retiree, said he found out about the 10-cent deal through the newspaper.
When asked if the horsemeat scandal made him think twice about the meatballs, Wong said: “I’m not too worried about the horse issue.”
60 MEATBALLS FOR 3 PEOPLE
Another customer, who identified himself as just “Zhang”, was there with his mother and sister.
The 25-year-old who is serving his national service, said: “Normally, we eat at IKEA once a week. We queued about 20 minutes and we ordered 20 balls each. At 10 cents a meatball, it is amazingly cheap.”
For him, it worked out to S$6 for 60 meatballs.
On social media, the deal was a topic of discussion as well. A tweet by one “Francis Zhang”, with reference to the Chinese horoscope, has already been retweeted 330 times.
It read: “At 10 cents a piece, I don’t care if my IKEA meatball has all the 12 zodiac animals inside.”
Well, I suppose there was some kind of spirit and shared values going on - that of the bloody ten-cent meatball and the need to gorge on them because they were ten cents apiece. Hey, here's a better idea; you can make more of a saving if you didn't make the trip down and...oh, who am I kidding.
Let's take a gander at zombies, both well-rotted and freshly-raised, in their hunger for flesh:
And as a bonus, we'll just throw in a little side dish of degeneracy:
How dare we judge. How DARE we judge degeneracy. "It doesn't matter that we have bloated, inefficient government agencies, they still produce GDP." "It doesn't matter that our car is a rusted-out heap that's troublesome to the point where we'd be better off walking, it's still a car, isn't it?"
Techs welding on plates and patching up holes just to be "good enough", and refusing to do a good enough job to fix the underlying issues.
We shall be good. We shall be nice. Because it's the trend, you see.
Because the average single mother isn't dependent on the state to care for the poor toy-child and has so much time to spend on and care for the goddamned pet rock of a kid.
Because another generation of the neglected and murdered is going to produce a wonderful citizenry that isn't halfway spoilt to...oh, wait.
Because we're going to let the degenerate masses decide what moral behaviour is by argumentum ad populum.
How dare we.
How fucking DARE we judge.
