ATTENTION: Minor spoiler alert to follow. Here’s your last chance to stop reading if you’re a fan of Better Call Saul and haven’t watched last night’s premiere yet. Ready? Last warning… Fans of Breaking Bad may remember that prophetic line uttered by squirrelly lawyer Saul Goodman toward the end of the series: “If I’m lucky in a month from now, best-case scenario, I’m managing a Cinnabon in Omaha.” Not one to turn down an opportunity for publicity, the cinnamon bun chain is now trading in on the character’s new lot in life by handing out free treats tonight.
(UPDATED with additional photos and comment from Cinnabon operator) In the chaos of the endgame of the AMC program “Breaking Bad,” one character decides to start over with a new identity. “If I’m lucky, in a month from now, best-case scenario, I’m managing a Cinnabon in Omaha,” this person tells another character. It wasn’t long before references appeared in the real world. (To state the obvious, if you’re saving the show for later, please skip the rest of this post.) [More]
UPDATE: The owner of the theater has issued a statement to Consumerist regarding the situation:
Aldi is recalling three flavors of its Fit and Active frozen dinners after an Omaha family found a steel clamp sealed in a sesame chicken frozen entree.
“If’ it’s from a machine. If it’s a practical joke. Well, it’s not really funny just because if there’s small pieces,” explained mom Karen Kader
