Subway didn't find Subtember 11th funny.

From The Onion:

Citing a wide range of deals customers will "never forget," fast food chain Subway announced an exciting new promotion this week to honor and commemorate Subtember 11. "With a number of terrific discounts on special sandwiches as well as our classic footlongs, you'll always remember where you were on Subtember 11."

Subway was less than enthused.

Like everyone, we are deeply offended by the fake story and ad created by The Onion.

Some said they found it in poor taste.

I understand humor, but is The Onion's 9/11 "Fly on In" @SUBWAY ad/article funny? I don't think so ... http://t.co/Bh3COJhEkd
