retail news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today reports that more than 100,000 Twitter users have reposted maps on that site that purport to show that Outback Steakhouse is a front for a Satanic cult.

The proof: The Outback locations in a number of cities can be shown to be connected by lines that form a pentagram, which sometimes is associated with Satanism and occultism.

The company has responded to the rumors by saying it has no plans to promulgate devil worship, though it does plan to continue "to bring bold steaks and Bloomin’ Onions to our guests!”

In some ways, this is unbelievable. But in others, the fact that people would believe and spread this crap seems utterly believable.
