America to follow with even more enormous fat-asses

Here's an idea, don't eat it you jackass. Try some oatmeal or fruit. While I'm at it, hit the gym occasionally too!

It'd be better if they did the bacon chicken style ranch commercial for this one..

/still have that damn song stuck in my head

I saw the commercial for that last night.

Creepy creepy creepy. The "king" looked like Chile P. Molestor.

the scary thing is that a lot of moms are going to be feeding these things to there kids every moring on the way to school. My parents did it to me when i was a kid every day it was drive up windows 3 meals a day. by the time i got to high school i was seriousley over weight. When i moved out for school and started to eat right i lost over 80 LB very quickley.

I'm just getting chilling visions of super models doing scary things with raw eggs while some other former rocker sings a poorly written parody song.

Im addicted to nasty, greasy, redneck breakfasts like that. I bet that thing will chase a hangover away. Mmmmmmmm.

Anyone have the "Where's your God now" Burger King pic? If so please post it...been looking for a while.

730 calories doesn't seem like that much to me. Isn't the recommended daily intake something like 2000 or 2500 calories? Just don't eat 2 of them for breakfast and you should be on track to have a healthy 700 calorie Whopper for lunch and another 1000 calorie double whopper with a milkshake for dinner. Man that's making me hungry.

Pictures of said omelette sandwich please
 
2005-03-28 09:11:49 AM  
i wish i had a pic to post; i saw a giant picture of one in the drive-thru the other day. i couldn't believe it was for real, up close all the grease makes it look like it's encased in lucite. and the tag line is great: "it's enormous!" true indeed.
 
2005-03-28 09:12:24 AM  
I saw a picture of it yesterday. Gross, omelettes are perfectly alright without making them into greasy fast food sandwiches. 2 eggs (with a teaspoon of milk for fluffy-ness), 1/2 tablespoon of lowfat butter, 2 slices of Boar's Head ham, and a 1/4 cup of cheddar --now that's a delicious omelette. Mmmmmmmmmm
 
2005-03-28 09:14:08 AM  
oh wait, the tagline is "it's huge!"

If you're trying to lose weight, isn't it a good idea to have a nice hearty breakfast so you don't feel like you're starving the rest of the day? I agree with drsoran that it seems like you should be able to occasionally fit a 730 calorie sandwich into a healthy 2500 calorie diet and not necessarily explode into a humongous fatass.

/keep telling myself that
 
2005-03-28 09:33:46 AM  
If you are on a 2500 calorie/day 60 grams fat/day diet, this sandwich is:

29% of your caloric intake for the day
78% of your fat intake


That shiat will kill you.

Is the guy singing the song for the chicken bacon cheddar ranch Darius Rucker (Hootie)?

See, I assumed as much the first time I saw it, but I couldn't tell for sure.

Also, are your 5 "duhs" reset daily or weekly? Do they get replenished at midnight, or is there sleep required?

Here's a typical breakfast for me as of late:

4 oz of sausage
3 eggs scrambled with the sausage
shredded cheese
spoon or two of sour cream

Roll it up in a home made tortilla and drown in home made hot salsa.

Enjoy.
 
2005-03-28 11:34:50 AM  
i think this would kill me.

between the fat and grease and the fact that i have just realized i'm apparently allergic to meat (and what a sucky revelation THAT was, let me tell you).

my breakfast tends to be smaller....a couple minibagels with cream cheese or melted mozzarella, fruit, and yogurt or soymilk. good stuff. nice and healthy and filling and won't give me a coronary.

that's a good thing.

you can have a large breakfast and still eat something that doesn't contain enough grease to clog your sink.
 
2005-03-28 12:14:48 PM  
I swear this greasy new sandwich could put Ex-Lax out of business. Taco Bell comes in close second.

oh it so fashionable to bash Hootie but it was radio hype that killed him not his songs.

I will eat a bacon cheddar tender ranch chicken wtf sandwich for you Darius

So his sucking had nothing to do with it?
 
2005-03-28 01:39:39 PM  
Yeah, why dont they just fill a bun with lard, and top it with butter. I guess that would kill people to quick for business, but boy would it be tasty!

And really, does anyone eat at taco bell. I mean, mcdonalds, burger king, its not healthy, but taco bell? Thats just a one way ticket to explosive-diarrhea-ville.

Would like a job in advertising? Because you sir, have the gift.
 
2005-03-28 01:41:45 PM  
i really dont' have a problem with it being full of fat...
...because if you go into burger king trying to get diet food anyway, you're a fool.
...what i have a problem with is the commercial:
1. there's a man in a plastic mask at your window behind the shades.where i to open my blinds first thing in the morning and see that, i would not be pleased. in fact, chances are, i'd grab my gun.
2. the dude takes the omelette mcheart attack or whatever it is! what kind of moron takes mysterious food from a clearly deranged man in a plastic mask calling himself the king!
3. for that matter, the skyline outside the window was qute bright--the sky was like orange, and the grass was far too green-- maybe the dude was on X--that would explain the whole commercial a lot better.

somehow this story has bled into every farking news source in America. Why? Who the fark cares about the new Burger King product? Seriously. How bizarre.
 
2005-03-28 01:43:03 PM  
Seems like I am the only one who's had one. I'm a fairly big eater, but I couldn't get much over halfway thru it. I'm sure that, on a good day, I could polish one off. But it's very filling. Didn't taste too bad.

Hootie was musical crap. Darius Rucker is musically worthless. He's right where he belongs now. Sing it, Darius.
 
2005-03-28 01:43:35 PM  
I had one for breakfast this morning. It was delicious.

I think Burger King should have defibrilators in their stores though. Just in case.
 
2005-03-28 01:43:54 PM  
*shrug*

I don't eat at fast food chains all that often, and usually if I do, it's for breakfast. That usually means a couple of sausage, egg and cheese biscuit, english muffin, or croissant. Can't imagine that's any better than one big sandwich.

This article reminds me of a manager I once worked for.

I would take my timesheet to him for signature at about 9AM, and he would be sitting at his desk with a clear plastic container from the restaurant downstairs. It would be filled with eggs, bacon, pancakes, and sausage, with syrup poured all over it. sometimes he would put the timesheet on a greasy spot on his desk while he signed it.

(*ugh!*)

2005-03-28 01:46:26 PM  
Fast food breakfasts are almost always really greasy. I can probably copy this at home and get away with under 500 calories and better taste.
 
2005-03-28 01:47:03 PM  
"The critics will still label it food porn," Sherri Daye Scott, editor at fast-food magazine QSR, told USA Today, which first reported the story. "But the average male fast-food customer does not have a problem with this."

I'd bet the average male fast-food customer probably doesn't have much of a problem with regular porn, either.
 
2005-03-28 01:47:08 PM  
If stupid you mean be a company actually offering the consumers who eat at Burger King something they might enjoy and make money off of them, then yes, it's very stupid.

I hate Hootie.

/Just saying...
 
2005-03-28 01:48:59 PM  
My first reaction was to say, "Good, f5ck people who want to stuff their face." My second reaction was to reflect on the greater health-care costs and drag on society through lost productivity lardasses impose on the rest of us. My third reaction, thanks to cardex's post, was to reflect sadly on the kids being overfed by thoughtless parents.

Those greasy, nasty-ass BK / McD breakfast sandwiches appeal to me only when I'm very hungover.

Dancin_In_Anson: how the hell many calories is that breakfast of yours?

I concur. I liked Hootie - they made some good pop songs - why all the Hootie Hate?

On topic - I think Burger King is trying to out do Hardees with that $6 burger monstrosity they sell. It's not an everyday thing of course, but when you've got a heavy hangover to overcome, nothing beats some some vitamin M, a greasy breakfast followed by a heathy dump.
 
2005-03-28 01:49:49 PM  
A few current issues solved:

- Mush up one of these things for Terry S..it'll keep her alive for a month, then give her a fatal coronary - problem solved!

- Send 5 of them over to Indonesia. If there's a tsunami today, they'll help keep people fed. If there's no tsunami, line them up a few miles off the coast to prevent future wave activity - problem solved!

/always thinking of ways to improve society...
