Finally: Burger King’s Whopper comes out as gay

posted at 7:01 pm on July 2, 2014 by Allahpundit

We McDonald’s fans always suspected (the campiness of “the King” was a dead giveaway) and now, at long last, confirmation. Good for you, Whopper. Be who you are. Good call by Ace too in remembering the SNL “Schmitt’s Gay” joke ad from the Farley/Sandler era. American politics has been mostly a function of identity politics for awhile now. It’s past time for American fast food to follow suit. Besides, there’s already a “straight burger,” isn’t there?

A Twitter buddy, seizing on the idea of “identity” burgers, floated the idea of an atheist burger. To which Andy Levy replied:

Not so. That’s the agnostic burger. The atheist burger wasn’t made by anyone. It just is.

Pork-Chop on July 2, 2014 at 7:09 PM

The Proud Whopper, as it’s called, comes wrapped in a rainbow colored wrapper with this inscription: “We are all the same inside.”

But the wrapper makes it different…and, thus, the outside is not the same. What a bunch of PC ninnies.

I want to know, having dropped the KING mascot, what will they name the “Burger King” company now?

Schadenfreude on July 2, 2014 at 7:10 PM

Alternate headline:

Burger King decides to go out of business.

Just wondering….can you step up to the counter and say “yeah…I’ll have a gay burger, a large Islamic fry, and a medium Native American Coke. For here.”

Would that be PC, or a hate crime?

I’m so confused.

Im sick of hearing it and Ill be damned if I am going to go to an establishment that kisses their behind so they can get attention from the media. And I sure as hell dont want a rainbow wrapped whopper.

Speaking of which, sad that a rainbow is probably now more viewed as being related to homos than being just a nice to look out colorful thing.

The campaign was conceived just a few months ago as a way for Burger King to bring the company’s new “Be Your Way” tagline to life. Fernando Machado, a senior vice president of global branding,

BTW this is kind of funny. They’re tricking all of those malnourished skinny gays into eating a sandwich.

Burger King obviously wants as many gay people as possible to consume their “Proud Whopper” (pardon me while I titter)as often as possible, in order to sell as many “Proud Whoppers” as possible. (Pardon me while I titter again.)

Doing so, of course, would result in declining health, per Michelle Obama’s apostolic teachings.

(I mean, let’s be honest, consuming large quantities of fast food is almost as hazardous to your health as plunging one’s engorged phallus into the feces-lined anus of a sexual partner. Amirite?)

So the question, obviously, is…

Why does Burger King hate the homosexual community?

faraway on July 2, 2014 at 7:16 PM

To emphasize the point, the interior of the wrapper comes with a second message: “We Are All the Same Inside.”

After the deed is done I can guarantee you …that is a lie.

The Proud Whopper, as it’s called, comes wrapped in a rainbow colored wrapper with this inscription: “We are all the same inside.”

So whether a burger is “proud” or straight regular is just a choice, and there’s no difference in how it’s made?
