Gives new meaning to the term “Pink Slime”.
To echo my post of 30 min ago ... what the corporations want, the corporations get.
Great! Now Whoppers can be linked to AIDS in the US as well then?
Well boycotting Burger King will be easy for me since their burgers are horrible.
Some folks have rectal damage inside... others not so much.
I’m not even going to go there.
Literally & figuratively.
Psst...want to see my “Proud Whopper.”
Yuck. Another corporation off my list. I’ll never understand the need to suck up to 2%.
An easy company to drop from my business
Who knew the king was such a queen?
I don’t do fast food....clogged arteries...to much money for some ‘gay’ company to waste...
I love to do my own food, that way I KNOW what is being put inside of it....
Besides garbage food...another reason not to eat at Burger King.
You said a mouthful!
BK,off my list of emergency acceptable alternatives.
Well, if it’s properly prepared with eternity in mind, it will be served burnt to a crisp.
Bow to the 2%, America.
They chose poorly.
Only in America do we promote gay sex, and then have corporations seek to make money from it
Let’s help Chick FIL A see record sales increase
Thanks for the info...will now cross off Bugger King from my lunch list.
