    Unbelievable Yelp Reviews

    I know we've all seen some intense Yelp reviews in our day. I didn't see this here yet, so I figured I'd share a cool find: Gawker's Kitchenette blog has been doing a series about some of the weirdest, strangest, best, and worst of Yelp reviews.

    NOTE: Gawker is sort of notorious for an irreverent style. If you're sensitive to profanity, mockery, snark, or negativity, I suggest not clicking through.

    Even More of the Dumbest Reviews on Yelp

    If power stations could be run on entitled stupidity, Yelp is living proof that all of humanity would never need live in darkness again.

    I knew going into this job that there was a level of dumb on Yelp that truly touched the profound, but I didn't realize just how deep the rot went. I have to say to my readers, WOW. You guys really stepped up, giving me far more reviews than I could use (including several I'm saving for later). If you like this series, keep them coming.
    The Kitchenette blog focuses on restaurants. There's a lot of "going in" on Yelp in various posts. You can see more Yelp-related posts (as well as the other two Yelp review posts) right here.

    Hope this made you smile on a Friday!

    Thanks Arthi, sounds like a fun Friday read!

    On a semi related note, Joy did a fun post yesterday about Yelp reviews.

    LOL, I read Joy's post yesterday and really enjoyed reading those reviews! Had to share with the office

    I definitely questioned my creativity after though, haha!

    That wound up being a pretty big deal, I saw the owners of the restaurant on one of the daytime national news stations the next day.

    Re: Unbelievable Yelp Reviews

    If I recall correctly, something similar happened when ABC Baking Company in Arizona (?) got 'featured' on Kitchen Nightmares and then they responded poorly to the Yelp reviews, etc.
