The "whatever" of the fair-to-middlin' thread.

This is where past, great threads in the history of our forum go.

Is it well-regarded? Burger King's supposed to be good, but why the hell would I go to Burger King?

It is, and it won some manner of blind taste test. Turns out that everyone really is an idiot except me.

You go to Burger King for bad attempts at viral marketing. If they called off the Whopper for real, I'd shit my pants with glee.

Yeah, the money I don't spend on it on Mondays makes it taste pretty good, otherwise, meh.

Starbucks is also overrated.

It totally is. Starbucks tastes burnt.

And free makes most things taste better. Except Superior™ coffee. It tastes like lite-roasted balls no matter what.

I'm not a big fan of coffee, but my apartment came with a free coffee maker, and I'll be damed if I let it go to waste.

The whopper isn't bad, as far as fast food burgers go. But when I eat at Burger King, I overwhelmingly go for their double-cheeseburger, as they make the best one in fast food.

For the main burger, I'd go for Wendy's first, then Burger King, then Rally's, McDonalds, Jack in the Box, then finally Hardees. Their "six dollar burger" just... isn't.

Fitting we're speaking of fast food chains in thte "fair to middlin" thread.

If I'm at Burger King, I'll get the Whopper. Mostly because that's what the coupon will say.

I usally go for the regular hamburger. This may not mean anything to you, as Burger King apparently no longer makes them Stateside.

That's news to me. My Burger King sells 'em. I don't mind them but they over-mustard their hamburgers.

I got a cold sore, but it's been so long since I last had one and it's not that bad....so whatever. Just a little annoyance.

They still have Rally's in places? :o

I miss Burger Station. Now that was a good burger. As it is now, I like A&W, then Wendys, as far as fast food burgers go.

Been lazier than usual lately. Haven't checked in here lately *waves to people* Thinking about working on my webcomic. Meh...
This is going in my notebook titled "Things I Didn't Know about Surface Dwellers."

I don't travel to the US much, so I have limited experience. However, whenever I asked for a simple hamburger (one bun, one piece of meat, some mustard, some ketchup, and exactly two slices of pickle) in the US or on post, they've never failed to ask what I was talking about...

It's that second pickle. You're just not going to a fancy enough joint.



Also, I didn't see Hillary cry. I don't feel that this has changed my life in any way.

That's because they make burgers different in every single place. I always have to get mine special ordered...and what's with this two pickle nonsense anyway? McDonalds does that. TWO measly little pickles? Grr, Don't be so stingy with them!
