Top Restaurant Deal
Subway FootlongSubway Footlong
Store: Subway
Discount: Buy 1, get 1 free via code "FLBOGO"

Did you know that Subway bread has too high a sugar content to be legally considered bread in Ireland? This and other things subway would prefer you forget can be hastily tossed aside in favor of enjoying delicious savings, thanks to coupon code "FLBOGO", which nets you two footlongs for the price of one. But before you take advantage of that, look below. Here are four terrible, terrible slogans for Subway. One of them is real. Identify it please.

  1. Makin' Sandwiches
  2. If You Are Eating at Subway, Then You Are Eating Fresh.
  3. Eat Quality
  4. The Fresh Comes Free
Click here for the answerIt's 2: "If You Are Eating at Subway, Then You Are Eating Fresh". It's not catchy, doesn't roll off the tongue, but at least it's about eight words too long to be a good slogan.

Store: Epic Games Store
Price: Free
Lowest By: $9
Expiration: February 9

This free game tasks you with establishing a crime family in the roaring 20s, tasking you with such lawlessness as defying prohibition laws, extorting your neighbors, and generally being a bad egg. I don't know if it lets you gives your gangsters nicknames, but it absolutely should, because old gangster nicknames are amazing. Only one of the following four isn't real. Please choose.

  1. Chicken Man
  2. Joey Spinach
  3. Willie Potatoes
  4. The Artichoke King
Click here for the answerThe faker is 2: Joey Spinach. Philip Testa's "Chicken Man" nickname came from his involvement in a poultry business. Ciro Terranova earned his nickname, "the Artichoke King", by purchasing all the artichokes that came into New York and selling them for roughly three times as much. There's no indication on where William Daddano Sr. got his "Potatoes" nickname, but let's pretend it's because he made a mean cottage pie.
