It is a bit unclear to me what the origin of this trend is, but several Olive Garden sub-reddits have been popping up and all seem to be along the same lines ie. a mocking worship of Olive Garden. Notable examples include /r/unlimitedbreadsticks and /r/actsofolivegarden. It appears to be linked to the so called “Olive Garden Conspiracy” (see reddit.com/r/olivegardenconspiracy ) which holds that Olive garden is using Reddit to advertise their business. The subreddits appear to mock this believe with posts like “Does anyone know any friendly, hometown, fine yet casual dining Italian places where I can get unlimited breadsticks?” which then links to OliveGarden.com. The posts and comments also seem to make fun of Reddit culture in general ie using words like “Le,” “DAE,” “[F]”/“[M]” and “AMA.”
