Burger King Markets Body Spray?


Because we have had a shortage of news of the bizarre...,
"Burger King is hoping to be known as more than “The Home of the Whopper.”

This weekend, the fast food chain rolled out “Flame,” a new men’s body spray billed as “the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat.”

And an informal survey by the Boston Herald found that there are men out there who’d wear it - even one who seemed to be named after a meat."

I suppose balance is required in the universe, right? Patchouli scents need to meet their opposites, perhaps?

Oh, no.
When it comes to the Whopper, spray it, don't say it...?

I'm trying to imagine the Burger Kind execs sitting in a board room and coming up with this.

I'm not surprised that some men would wear it though. Some men are clueless.
