Officer McCormick posted a photo of his drive-thru order receipt with the word...

    A Louisiana Burger King reportedly refused to serve two uniformed officers who tried to order food through the drive-thru last month. According to the Bayou Journal, the Assumption Parish sheriffs deputies had just finished SWAT training and went to a Burger King in St. Francisville to get some food. When the police officers tried to order through the drive-thru speaker at the fast food chain, employees allegedly denied their request. The police departments public information officer Lonny Cavalier said the deputies tried to order chicken and were told the restaurant was out. They then tried to order Whoppers, to which...

    Fast food company Burger King Russia has been forced to apologize after an advertisement offered Russian women the chance to win $47,000 and free Whoppers for life if they got impregnated by a World Cup player. The short-lived campaign was promoted in Russia on Tuesday via social media platform VK -- Russia's equivalent of Facebook -- before being pulled down after a flurry of angry responses from the public. Burger King Russia then released an apology on VK, saying they had removed all materials related to the campaign as it was 'insulting."

    A hungry Burger King customer in Ohio got an earful of expletives last Wednesday after the restaurants manager cussed her out for taking too long to order. Lizzie Ramsey, of Newark, Ohio, said that she and her husband Cody along with his co-worker and his 11- and 12-year-old brothers had pulled up to the drive-thru of a nearby Burger King at around 8 a.m. to place their breakfast order. But every time Ramsey had finished ordering for one of the people in the car, the manager interrupted with the total price, and later told her to hurry up,...

The man then tried to get the money back, but the suspect then pushes him away and manages to flee the scene. The individual is described as a female, 40 to 50 years old, and was last seen wearing a black du-rag on her head and all black clothing.

    Went to Burger King today, and noticed at the bottom of the receipt a Bible verse: "Psalms 20:4 (NIV) May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." Maybe the owners of this franchise deserve a little recognition for their stand. Seems Chick-fil-A and a few others have taken a stand while others have turned tail and ran from their faith. So, if you are ever in the Castle Rock, Colorado area, the two Burger King restaurants are owned by the same company. Even if you don't eat there, maybe send them a nice...

    To the frantic manager of a Coon Rapids Burger King Friday night, the choice was to act fast or face disaster. A caller who said he was a fire department official said there was a gas leak in the building and that unless the windows were smashed, a gas buildup in the building would cause an explosion. So the manager and Burger King employees evacuated the restaurant and started smashing ground floor windows. Every single one. Problem was, it was a hoax. The caller was no firefighter. There was no gas.

    Burger King has delivered perhaps the wittiest Twitter reply ever by a fast food company. It came in response to Anthony Weiner who tweeted about the news that Snoop Dogg will appear in a Burger King training video teaching employees how to cook hot dogs. I don't want to give the hilarious Burger King punchline away so read it for yourself and enjoy yet another laugh at the expense of Weiner who seems doomed to eternally remain at the butt end of jokes.

    CHICAGO - A Burger King manager who accuses Chicago police of erasing surveillance video in the case of a black teenager shot last year by a white officer says he has testified before a federal grand jury investigating the shooting. It's not clear what that video might have shown, but the accusation of tampering has fueled the anger of protesters who say the city, the police and local prosecutors have mishandled the case. After months of refusals, the city released police squad car video of the shooting on Tuesday in response to a judge's order. But both the police chief...

    From September 28 through Halloween Day, the burger giant is offering its popular patty sandwich inside a pitch-black bun that's flavored with A.1. sauce and sprinkled with white sesame seeds. The burger comes loaded with the usual Whopper fixings (melted American cheese, pickles, white onion, tomato and mayonnaise) but this one also has a dash of A.1. saucesomething I don't think I've tried in over 20 years. The verdict: it's kinda, sorta...well...okay, really good. The black bun has the squishiness of a Martin potato roll and a tiny hint of black pepper that's a good complement to the smoky charcoal-broiled...
  • The Democratic Party Adopts $15/hour Minimum Wage into National Platform

    The Democratic Party on Friday adopted a call to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr as part of their established party platform heading into the 2016 election season. The move further polarizes the progressive wing of the party by moving them further to the left of both the Republican Party, and corporate centrist Democrats such as Hillary Clinton. In response to the Democratic Partys vote, Terrence Wise, a Kansas City, Mo. McDonalds and Burger King Worker and member of the National Organizing Committee of the Fight for $15, issued the following statement.

    In what could be a first for a global fast food outlet, Burger King is making a bold proclamation in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community with the launch of a specially packaged burger. The "Be Your Way" project was created at a Burger King franchise in San Francisco, where a limited edition "Proud Whopper" sandwich was added to the menu to coincide with the city's annual pride festivities. According to press materials, guests who ordered the "Proud Whopper" found that the sandwich was the same as a classic Whooper, but came wrapped in a rainbow-colored...
