Had a Whopper Junior Saturday for only 99 cents. Quite a deal. I figure that if you don't eat too much, it's not too bad for you (and I'm sticking to that).

Used an inflation calculator, and found that that price is equivalent to the 15 cent burgers that McDonalds had in 1966.

There is extremely blurry Burger King product placement in the movie Iron Man--so subtle it's almost subliminal. Found myself ordering the Kid's Meal yesterday just to get the Iron Man toy....

Poopy lemons would also be another bad euphemism.

Maybe if you're a "little person" but at 6'6" I have large hands and a whopper is just an average size sandwich to me. Easily handled with one hand with a drink or fries in the other. I love having a high metabolism.

Checks clipboard, stopwatch. OK, 69 posts before this turned into a sex-jokes thread. I think we can do a lot better.

I can't believe no one has mentioned White Castle hamburgers yet. Give me a bag of sliders anytime.

Dang it bbamI! Now I have to step back into my pants and put on my tattered sweatshirt and head 2 miles down the road to our local White Castle. I shoudn't do it. It's wrong for a zillion reason. But, sigh..... off I go..... Four sliders and an order of onion rings washed down with a can of cheap American beer....... Aaaaaah......
