Coming back from a three-day weekend sure does suck, right? Well, if there’s one thing that can cure your blues it is a new batch of Funny Photos. It is also knowing that this is a short workweek so at least it will be the weekend again before you know it. So take a deep breath, half-ass everything at work, pretend to listen in on meetings and before you know it you’ll be heading home feeling somewhat accomplished. But for now, ignore your job and pay attention to these funnies.
KFC has had some hits and misses in recent years. While sometimes they do funny things like only follow 11 people on Twitter for a hilarious reason, they also also sometimes miss the mark when it comes to telling jokes. But nothing compares to actually running out of the thing they actually need: chicken. Recently, in the UK and Ireland, 900 KFC branches had to close for the day after their was a shortage of chicken.
Everyday we’re getting more and more proof that it’s probably best just to swim to your destination, and that’s because bizarre things are happening in the air. From planes having to turn back because of married couples bickering to a passenger smearing poop all over a plane, it’s tough to have an average flight these days. Which brings me to the woman in this flight.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
