Fast Food Chain Serves 'Darth Vader' Burgers
Yahoo! ^ | January 5, 2012 | Piper Weiss

How much force needs to be with you to eat a black burger? The Belgian fast food chain Quick is celebrating the upcoming "Phantom Menace 3D" movie premiere by launching a line of "Star Wars"-themed burgers. The burgers will debut in Quick restaurants throughout France on January 31, just before the film's February release in the country. Despite being in French, the ads for the burgers have sent the entire Internet into a tailspin of equal parts repulsion and curiosity.

You want these burgers, don’t you? The desire to bite into one is swelling in you now. Take your jedi weapons! Use them! They are unarmed. Bite into one with all of your hunger, and your journey to the Dark Side will be complete!

I wonder what they call a "Quarter Pounder" over there?

I thought that Belgium had laws against anything interesting happening in their country.

The “Quuater Pounder” is the “Royale”.

“entire Internet into a tailspin of equal parts repulsion and curiosity”

So....so write “articles” for “news sources” you have to be a complete, f-ing, hyperbolic retard who doesn’t understand the meaning of words like “entire” or “tailspin” or that you shouldn’t say things like “equal parts” unless you actually understand - in some objective sense - the breakdown of what you’re talking about?

The first thing I’d do were I in charge of this “news” organization is fire the idiot who wrote this and every moron who proof-read and approved it.

There is an official French Language Purity agency that controls ALL words used in France (I assume published/broadcast). Absent a compelling reason NOT to, they come up with French words for all foreign products, movie titles, TV show names, etc.

Exactly. The ‘eighth-kilo” or “125-grammer” did not go over too well so they decided to change the name completely.

I lived in Belgium with a wife and small child. We tried Quick a few times. Disgusting and enough to send me to McDonalds. What can you expect from a country that serves raw hamburger mixed with egg on a bun and calls it a "Hamburger Americain?"

BTW, when we were there McDonalds ran TV commercials spoofing the burger scene in Pulp Fiction complete with Engish speaking gangsters in an American car. Last line of the commercial," Where's Belgium? Who the [beep] knows?" Clever, but my wife and I were mystified as to who would want to go to McDonalds after seeing the commercial.

I love that shirt, but I don’t know any real star wars fanatics that are dads that I care enough about to buy it for. My dad watches 40’s musicals.

Me: I won't fail you. I'm not afraid.
