The layout of Outback’s locations in several cities bear an eerie resemblance to a pentagram, a symbol used within Wiccan practice and in ancient cultures, but is also often associated with the practice of Satanism in the U.S.
So of course, the Twitter community came together to try to figure out just what could Outback Steakhouse be planning? Things got pretty serious. People needed answers.

Eventually it started to get a little out of hand and the restaurant itself had to step in to set the record straight. Maybe it all just comes back to the Bloomin’ Onion, one of Outback’s trademarks foods.

But really — turns out it’s all just a coincidence. With almost 1,000 locations, it’s bound to create some crazy shapes if you look hard enough.
While we think it’s safe to say that this rumor is quashed (for now), this strange coincidence goes to show that there’s a little bit of Charlie Day in all of us.
