It's usually pretty hard to lose a job, and it's even worse to do so publicly.
But being a public figure with a "to heck with this" attitude affords one certain opportunities. We here at Guacamoley are fans of the strategic use of The Blaze of Glory — quitting a gig on your own terms and burning that ish down. It's one of the greatest experiences you can ever have (and absolutely one of the best beer-earning stories in your arsenal).
Take Spike TV and its magnificently NSFW running twitter thread.
Spike TV was the self-declared "network for men" that brought us, among other things, the turning point of the now-famous UFC, thanks to the reality show The Ultimate Fighter. While bro-ey to the point of full collapse, Spike had 15 years and basically launched an international sport into the mainstream, and for that we thank them.
But whoever is running the Spike Twitter account is clearing house in a The Blaze of Glory, and we couldn't be giddier. Dig in.
Goodbye, Spike. You were everything people mean when they talk about toxic masculinity! Thanks for the UFC, though.
