Big Dairy is on to us October 5, 2017 6:02 PM   Subscribe

I'm not entirely sure this warrants a MeTa but, what the hell, I'm making one anyway. Michael Schur (@kentremendous), the creator of The Good Place*, discovered this AskMe and played into it a little bit. The resulting Twitter thread is short but amusing.

*also Parks and Recreation and some other stuff.

Big Dairy, if you're listening: I can be bought.

That’s exactly how I would respond if I were taking money from Big Dairy and didn’t want to admit it.

With large parts of the internets resembling a tire fire lately, I like it when bits come together to be charming. Well done, all. Yogurts all around!

Someone suggest the show "Burn Notice" to Dag Maggot. Big Dairy got that show early!

Now I want yogurt.

I just want to point out that I learned about The Good Place from that AskMe, and it turns out that I like it. So thanks for that, even if I'm supporting Big Dairy. Somehow.

Also soft-serve is an abomination unto humanity, let alone soft-serve frozen yogurt. Ugh.

The only way to clear this up is for you to appear on @beefanddairy podcast and set the record straight.

when you hear the phrase "rich beef sausages," your training will kick in.

Well, they are as deep as AskMe so far... Now they just need to take the plunge and get to FanFare and MetaTalk.

Then maybe we can IRL with Michael Schur!

On the Internet, no one knows you're lactose-intolerant, so when does MeFi start getting some paid placement?

So I was putting off watching The Good Place because I have so many other shows to watch (I've heard good things though!) - no idea it was created by Mike Schur! I'm totally watching all of it tonight now.

The not-so-funny thing is that I was half-way serious with my AskMe post - and I tipped him off to the thread on Twitter hoping he'd respond. Oh well ...
