Subway customers are up in arms and busting out measuring tapes amid reports that the chain’s famous foot-long subs fall a half an inch or even a full inch short.
The controversy began on Tuesday in Perth, Australia, when a discerning customer named Matt Corby ordered one and pulled out a tape measure:
Corby found the sub measured only 11 inches long and took his outrage to Facebook, where he posted a photo of it with the caption “subway pls respond.”
The photo, predictably, sparked an abundance of similar photos on Facebook of subs being measured and countless comments onMore >

Demand a plan, Hollywood stars?
A new viral video sends a very different message: Demand Celebrities Go F–k Themselves.
YouTube user Mike Hunt has created a response to the PSA recorded a few weeks ago by various famous faces – from Jamie Foxx to Jason Bateman – in which celebrities urge the public to push for stricter gun control laws.
“I was immediately struck by the irony of their entire campaign,” Hunt tells EW. “Here are a bunch of vapid Hollywood celebrities attempting to shame the public into submitting toMore >
As noted in our Les Miserables review, we weren’t huge fans of this big screen adaption.
But Anne Hathaway deserves all the Oscar buzz circulating around Hollywood, thanks to her rendition of the classic track “I Dreamed a Dream.”
Was it the best version we’ve heard of this single over the last few years, though?
Susan Boyle rose to fame by covering the song on Britain’s Got Talent, while Lea Michele and Idina Menzel teamed up for a rendition on Glee.

Money for Hurricane Sandy relief was not the only thing raised in Madison Square Garden last night.
So were many eyebrows in response to Kanye West’s attire.
Despite performances by The Rolling Stones; Roger Waters and Eddie Vedder; Bon Jovi and many others, the rapper was the talk of Twitter not long after his performance. But not for anything he said or sang.
For the leather skirt he wore:

Natali Germanotta, 20, doesn’t have the same eccentric fashion tastes as her older, famous sibling. You may know her sister, who usually goes by Lady Gaga.
Just the same, in a photo shoot for ViralFashion (dot) com, the Parsons The New School for Design student strikes a pose in various high-end pieces.
Can you see the family resemblance?
The fact that Natali agreed to appear in this photo shoot is surprising, since she’s rarely seen in the public eye and typically allows her sister to get all the attention.
She did accompany Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta) down the red carpetMore >

A couple days after the Fleetwood Mac singer got involved in the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey feud by referring to the former as a “little girl” who needed to be choked, the artist has come out with a statement.
