Website of the Day: F*ck You Yelper

New, 3 comments

Here's the tumblr Fuck You Yelper that collects silly "reviews" from the demented hive mind that is Yelp. The website describes itself as "An exploration of the douchebaggery idiots commit when enabled with an internet connection, enough money for a meal, and a sense of entitlement."

Screencapped above is a two-star review of Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo's Los Angeles restaurant Son of a Gun: "the silverware is really cheap, at first I though [sic] they were made of plastic. the food is okay." Also see this one-star review of Shook and Dotolo's other restaurant Animal that reads: "But, there's a trend in LA of things like calf brains and the cheek of pigs and it's a little much for me. Animal's all about this. I was taken here by a friend. There wasn't a lot I'd have eaten on the menu."

Issue: The website doesn't link to the original reviews, so there's no way to know if these reviews are real (but it's amusing nonetheless). It's similar to a previous website of the day, The Yelp Elite, a website that had to change its name to the The Blank Elite because Yelp threatened to sue the owners for using the word "Yelp."
