Halloween Whopper Discontinued???

bk-halloween-whopper5b25dWe went to Burger King a few days ago and they had a sign on the door saying they were out of the black buns for the Halloween Whopper. They told us they would get more buns that evening, but of course we didn’t go back. Today we went back to the doctor’s office to get my blood drawn, and decided we’d try again for the Halloween Whopper. They had a new sign on the same door saying the Halloween Whopper was discontinued.

WHAT? DISCONTINUED? Ok, that’s a bit dramatic lol.

We went in and I asked the woman at the register what the delio was. She told me that they only allowed 1 pallet of buns per delivery, and they only get their delivery twice a week. How can they possibly expect to sell any Halloween Whoppers with only 2 pallet of buns per week? I would imagine that if Burger King spent, and this is just a wild guess, millions of dollars in advertising, that they would have enough black buns for every Burger King per delivery. How is it possible that they could run a million dollar promotion, and not have enough product? It just seems like a bad business practice.

I heard about the buns causing people to have green poop anyway. Just think of it as green slime, like you know, from Ghostbusters. Slimer has invaded your stomach and is causing you to poop green lol. I’m sure it’s from whatever dye they put in the buns. I’m not sure the A1 would cause green poop, but then again I hardly ever eat A1. I haven’t actually had it since I was a child because it’s nasty.

My partner decided since they didn’t have the Halloween Whopper that he would have a Big Fish sandwich. I decided that I wanted a Whopper since the Big Fish from the other day left a brick in my stomach. The regular Whopper was awesome, so I didn’t really miss the black bun aka green poop.

After that I went straight to the gym. If I’m going to eat unhealthy food, I have to burn off the calories.

Spark Peoples Mobile Makeover

Spark People has finally given their mobile site a long overdue makeover. I was having trouble with my slow computer so I turned my PSP on to log my dinner through their mobile site and found a cool new look.

As you can see they have added the ability to track your weight and water as well as being able to browse Restaurant foods. That is a nice addition for those on their mobile phones when they are out at the local Burger King so as they are eating their “salad” (yeah right) they can look up how many calories they are eating then track it.

Here are some more pictures.

Even though I’m not technically a huge mobile user, I do appreciate that they are finally working on their mobile version. I do use it occasionally because it loads much faster than it does in the browser on my slow computer.

Me In The Simpsons – Wood Burned and Painted

I got bored…  LOL I went to the google search engine and typed “turn picture into simpsons character” and I found this website from Burger King called Simpsonize Me.  I thought it was a very good likeness of me lol and I got bored so I wood burned it and that wasn’t enough for me, I had to paint it too lol.  So here you go, I hope you like it.

Misuse of 911

911 is for emergencies only!  If your house is on fire you call 911.  If someone is robbing your house you call 911.  If your husband just had a heart attack you call 911.  If your child was kidnapped you call 911 IMMEDIATELY not 30 days later (Casey).

There has been some misuse of the 911 system lately.  A woman was at a Burger King trying to order some western BBQ burgers for her kids and they weren’t making it for her and she called 911 to tell them that they refuse to “make it her way” lol.

Then there was a woman who called 911 not 1 but 3 times to complain that she ordered a 10 piece Chicken McNugget and paid for it then they found out they were out and asked her to pick something else out and she said no and they told her well, sorry but no refunds.  Which in my opinion is fishy because I’ve worked for McDonald’s when I was a teenager and if they are out of something they refund your money immediately without hesitation.  So that particular McDonald’s must be owned by Adolph McDonald.

Now another person calls 911 to complain that this Chinese restaurant didn’t put enough shrimp in her fried rice.

Enough people!  This is getting way out of control.  If they let people call 911 for food related issues that can be resolved by calling a managers attention then there is no reason to call 911.  Just act like you are an adult and take care of it with some dignity.  It’s fricken’ chicken and shrimp people.  Give me a break.

The woman at Burger King was offered a refund but she refused it and the 911 operator said take the refund and go home.  The woman at the McDonald’s, why couldn’t she have chosen something else of equal or higher value then paid the difference?  I mean how much could a 10 piece mcnugget cost?  $3?  So get 3 chicken sandwich’s instead for $1 each.  Get over it lady.  And the shrimp lady, if you don’t like the amount of shrimp that is in your fried rice then ask for your money back and go to Panda Express.

Stop wasting 911 operators and the local police officers time and tax payers money with your stupid food related problems.  Deal with it yourself.
