I didnt think this was a slow news day/
 
2005-01-21 12:50:20 PM  
Actually, with onion rings and BBQ sauce, it might actually be pretty good.
 
2005-01-21 12:59:41 PM  
Wow...they created a burger that Carl's Jr./Hardee's has been selling for years.

What Geniuses!!

Why do we still watch TV?
Because people are drones?

Why did this product win?
Becaues people are drones.

Why will it sell?
Because people are drones.

Will someone, twenty years from now, complain that this product gave them heartfailure?

Yes.

Why?
I think you know.

Stories like these make me shake my head in shame.

Did the team 'create' it or just market it? I watched the show last night and BK gave them 6 or 8 different sandwiches to choose from - they picked one that was already designed.

CruiseMan: Wow...they created a burger that Carl's Jr./Hardee's has been selling for years.

Well duh, the "Apprentices" are all just marketroids with TV-friendly faces. As marketroids, their primary purpose in life is to take something that has been successful for another company, give it a new name, and market it as their own.

Oh, and this burger will suck purely because the "Angus Steak" burger tastes like shiat. Truly, it tastes EXACTLY like the Grade F meat they used to serve in hamburgers when I was in elementary school.

Wow America is becoming a bunch of fatasses, they are putting onion rings on top of the burger now? (for all you people who think their needs to be more on a burger http://www.jaybrewer.net/fastfoodfever/cuisine.html)

As for Trump I think their needs to be an "accident" in which he falls off the top of one of his casinos. I am getting sick of the guy and his ego.

If "Super Size Me" didn't confirm that I shouldn't eat fast food, this is the nail in the coffin.
 
2005-01-21 01:14:16 PM  
Will it be 'fired' over an open flame (or microwaved like the rest of their meat-like products)?

Note, some ass is pretty tasty.
 
2005-01-21 01:14:17 PM  
Almighty: Grade F meat they used to serve in hamburgers when I was in elementary school.

And by that, of course, I mean the hamburgers served in the school cafeteria.

Did you hear that McDonald's will be selling a "Simple Life" Paris Hilton Burger ? It's made by sticking the beef into the mouth of a skank, then heated under a green light.
 
2005-01-21 01:15:28 PM  
What a surprise, the team that didnt go to college won. Their whole lives they were told that they would end up "flippen burgers," so I guess they were prepared.

Also, on the show, neither team developed a burger, they chose from already developed burgers.

This burger won't just taste like ass. It'll taste like Trump ass
 
2005-01-21 01:17:28 PM  
Where oh where is Spy Magazine when you need them?! With Rudy and the Donald back again, they'd be in hog heaven right now.
 
2005-01-21 01:17:29 PM  
Okay then, Burger King has now made it onto my Enemies List.
 
2005-01-21 01:17:50 PM  




Now that's a tasty burger...
 
2005-01-21 01:18:18 PM  
Ok. Aside from the "Angus steak" and Trump's proverbial dick all over it, isn't this just the "Rodeo Burger" they had last year?

/Yeah, I mentioned Trump's proverbial dick. Any bets someone will say it tastes like it?
 
2005-01-21 01:18:33 PM  
pshaw: Will someone, twenty years from now, complain that this product gave them heartfailure?

Someone will, but it won't be me, because I have this little thing called self control.

One burger, or a burger now and again, isn't going to cause anyone problems.

A burger every day, maybe, if you don't exercise.

It's all about moderation.

Big Mac or Whopper?

Whopper wins.

Dude, they sold this burger years ago. I was just thinking about it last night. I believe it was on their 99c menu for a while. I can't remember what it was called, though. Western Cheeseburger? Something like that.

I just remember being in HS and getting them ALL THE TIME.
 
2005-01-21 01:24:43 PM  
Did anyone watch last night's Apprentice? The book-smarts team was totally dead set on blaming their failure on the guitar-playing polyester-suit wearing Danny. Thankfully Donald realized this and fired who really messed it up for them, the project leader. Why? They had too few(come on, TWO for lunch rush?) people working the cash registers.

The other team had a small armada of people taking orders.
 
2005-01-21 01:25:11 PM  
The angus burger sucks much less when you remove the high-fructose corn syrup laden barbeque sauce.
 
2005-01-21 01:25:18 PM  
"Net Worth" is the stoopidest team name ever. They should all be fired for chosing it.
 
2005-01-21 01:25:18 PM  
Up here, Harvey's has been marketing their Black Angus burger for about six months. They never thought about sticking onion rings on it, tho, and that's because they're not marketing geniuses.
 
2005-01-21 01:27:10 PM  
Yeah, what Cromulus said:

If you just have it with onions and cheese, the Angus burger is good. Not as good as Hardee's Thickburger (mmm... thickburger).

Incidentally, the Danny guy is my roommate's boss. Apparently he only went on the show to plug PopStick, the marketing technology company he runs.

Here comes everyone to offer their opinion on what's good and what's not.

Can't wait.

HAHAHAHA! That pic is high-larious! Where did you find that? I seriously lol-ed. Hysterical.

I'm liking the contestants less and less with each season. Not sure if I'll follow it this season.

Ass?
 
2005-01-21 01:32:35 PM  
So they invented the Rodeo Burger? The greatest Fast Food Combination sandwich outdide of a Hardee's Six Dollar Burger? The same sandwich I ate ever chance I got about 5 years ago?
 
2005-01-21 01:35:00 PM  
It does not matter what goop they put on it. It does not matter what hip marketing ploy is used to sell it.

They will never be able to hold a candle to In & Out Burger.

They just don't get it; fresh food tastes better!!!

I'm so glad I don't eat fast food.
 
2005-01-21 01:35:26 PM  
Isn't this the rodeo burger without the bacon?
 
2005-01-21 01:37:01 PM  
Anybody else think The Apprentice is one of the worse shows on tv?
 
2005-01-21 01:38:12 PM  
wtf? This is the same as the Rodeo Burger except they are using the Angus beef patty instead of the Whopper patty!!!

/I farking HATE fast food marketing schemes!
 
2005-01-21 01:39:47 PM  
Black Anus Burger. Uggh.
 
2005-01-21 01:40:34 PM  
I notice this while on yahoo. Hey bob, sign on to instant messenger I need to tell you something...

 
2005-01-21 01:42:58 PM  
Wake me when they start selling that beer with candy floating in it.
 
2005-01-21 01:49:17 PM  
News flash: Fast food is unhealthy. Yep, you heard it here first!

I watched part of this episode last night with the wife (she likes it, go figure). The "Net Worth" guys did pretty well but the other team looked like a bunch of total farktards. Honestly, why did they pick such stupid people for this show?
 
2005-01-21 01:49:20 PM  
The greatest burger in the history of fast food was A & W's Dagwood Burger.
 
2005-01-21 01:51:10 PM  
I don't think there's a Burger King within 10 miles of here.

And I'm downtown.

You are only partially correct on all of those points. Magna actually only trained 1 less person on POS than Net Worth did (3 vs 2). Secondly, the final decision of how many POS trained employees they had was actually made by Alex anyway (that does bring up the point of the team leader letting someone else make that decision for the team though)

Finally, I have to believe that Danny really was more to blame for the loss. The marketing, well, sucked. The only defense Danny ever came up with was that "he got people in the door". But that was not the point of the marketing. The marketing was supposed to get people excited about the "new burger", but nobody had any idea exactly what Danny was promoting, or even doing out front. From what I could see, he may as well have been a street performer, begging for loose change.

Angus burger? I thought it said Anus Burger.
