Burger King is kind of like that douche you knew in high school who, to this day, is still basically the same douche you knew in high school.
Their commercials pander to the basest impulses of red-meat American men. The oneupmanship of their absurdly caloric food is an arms race to the bottom in nutrition. And now a few Memphis Burger King restaurants are global warming denialists
. To come: The Limburger Limbaugh Burger, it stinks and its got a lotta meat
According to the Memphis Flyer
, Burger King corporate confirmed that five restaurants owned by a local franchiser had the message "Global Warming Is Baloney" posted on their signage. This doesn't reflect the views of BK, a corporate spokesperson says, though they certainly aren't green--rated with across-the-board zeros by ClimateCounts.org
Sounds like the local franchiser got a stern rebuke from corporate, because the message has since been removed.
