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 have altered the sauce. Pray I do not alter it any further.
The “Quuater Pounder” is the “Royale”.

Sorry...spelling before coffee.
The French call it a Royale.
Because of the metric system?
Your lack of faith in the burger is disturbing.
“I have altered the sauce. Pray I do not alter it any further.”
Made my day!! LOLOLOLOL.
“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.
I now have a fast food chain and am cashing in on my celebrity! Ha!! Ha!! Ha!!
May the cholesterol be with you...
>>Because of the metric system?<<
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.
Darth: “Obi-wan never told you what happened to your burger”
Luke: “He told me enough! He told me you ate it!”
Darth: “No... I AM your burger!!”
Exactly. The ‘eighth-kilo” or “125-grammer” did not go over too well so they decided to change the name completely.
