Whopper Freakout

What a week.

Thanks to those who posted comments this past week - it's always great to see discussion.

So now I'm going to play corporate shill for Funny Fridays - except I don't get paid by the corporation I'm shilling.

I'm actually not shilling for the corporation either, just their brilliant advertising which saw this campaign go viral over the internet.

It's Burger King's Whopper Freakout and all I'll say is that it's quite an interesting societal statement when being told that you can't have a Whopper generates the same type of reaction you might expect from having your spouse tell you they slept with your sibling.

Now before the brilliant advertising has you rushing out to Burger King, please be aware that each Whopper with cheese has 760 Calories, 47 grams of fat (16 grams saturated, 1.5 grams trans) and 1,450mg of sodium. Translation - it's not even Health Check'able.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
