Perhaps they’re going a little far with the “have it your way” marketing angle. Or maybe it’s just that the cost of beef has skyrocketed, and we Americans just need to learn to make do with the — er … less savory parts of the animal.
Then again, BK did recently come out with a gay and proud Whopper in keeping with Gay Pride Week and its new slogan “Be you way,” so maybe this is just the next step in the fundamental transformation of the America.
OK, enough. The real story (as you probably already guessed on your own) is that the $15-per-hour employee responsible for this promo left out a “G.” The sign should read “Try the cheesy Angus burger.”
I am reminded of a food store that was opened in New York by immigrants from the Middle East some years back. The establishment is long gone, but what it keeps it fresh in my memory was the name they chose for it: “Semen Deli.” Some local must have cued them in to what that presumably proper noun means in English, because a day or two after the grand opening, the “S” vanished from the sign.
As for the anus burger, I’m assuming the staff has been instructed to ask customers who order it, “You want lamb fries with that?”
