    Uh, Greg, look at the date of that "press release". March 31, which would make the release date ("tomorrow") of the sandwich... [​IMG]
    At least it shows the Burger King company has a sense of humor. [​IMG]

    The funny part about it is that it didn't tip you off that rotation of condiments by 180 degrees would be relative to how you hold the sandwich, because it is round.

    If there were an issue with whoppers, it could be solved by spinning it around... no by remaking the sandwich!

    Very gimmicky, but effective. Something this stupid gets people talking, the talk gets people craving, the craving gets people to buy. Just reading this thread has me hungry for a Whopper. But I'd rather go to In'n Out...oops, backfire! Guess I won't be going to Burger King afterall. But it would get Burger King fans back in there. The only time I ever go to "Booger Fling" is when I don't have a choice...like in some airports.

    LOL, when I read the title of this thread, I figured it was an article from this week's issue of The Onion.

    This has to be somebody's idea of a joke. Kind of like the running "Left-Handed T-Square" joke for drafting class in my high school. Somebody at Burger King was having a little fun.

    And what about those people who eat their burger with two hands? I think they're being slighted. Somebody start a class action suit for descrimination!

    So, you think that's funny! Try taking a leak (the whole routine) unzipping and zipping left handed! (If you are a righty.)

    Someone should come up with a right-handed drive through. Do you know how many times I just about dropped the bag with my left hand? [​IMG]
    And what about left-handed drinks? Why wouldn't BK come out with a whole line of lefty-compliant menu items? Some people...

    Strangely related, my dad- whoi is left handed, had to quit working in fast food as a kid because of the right handed fry scooper.

    If you ever look, at BK or McD or wahetever- they box the fries by using a scoop which has the fry box slipped over it. it is always made for right handers (the handle is to the right of the fry carton).

    So maybe they should work on making their tools multihanded and leave the sandwich alone.
