WTF?

WIndows 7 whopper

Should have a health warning on it as it would probably contain a lot of bugs, worms, viruses etc.

Go Meat!

H311 yeah, hook a brutha up, playa! Why limit this all-beef flame-broiled pleasure to Japan when there are hungry dudes in Kansas just willing to smash one of these down? On the other hand, how about the Ubuntu 9.10 Whomper with 10 beef and 9 cheese built in... Now that would be pretty damn tasty.

Paris, because we know full well her fondness for a big ol' hit of beef...

meat patties

'meat patties' - Am I the only person who finds that term a little... disturbing?

Only the Japanese. :)

In my experience with the Japanese, this does not surprise me too much (let's face it, this is fairly pedestrian when compared to Japanese vending machines that sell underwear previously worn by nubile young schoolgirls). I kid you not...

But it still puts a grin on my face whenever I see a marketing prank like this coming from the Land of the Rising Sun. :)

They should bring that to the UK, might get more than 1 person in the place then.

Give me the meat!

Why only Japan? This monster would sell a bomb in Glasgow, more if they deep fried it!

@Jelliphiish: Yeah so does most things but at least I can enjoy one of these, unlike most so called healty food.

"That's a f*cking good burger"

I want one, unimaginable cardiovascular consequences be damned! Mind you, if BK's tagline is 'Have it your way' then you should be able to print the poster off, take it to your local BK and demand they make you one!!

Might not work here in Blighty but surely out in Kansas you could have them make you one on pain of lawsuit!

more on the Japanese

mentions "13cm of American-sized buns". Was wondering if it was a subtle dig at American largeness, but 13cm "buns" would be abnormally small (unless you work for Ralph Lauren, I suppose). So I guess it's not a paradoy, though why they think largeness (or Win7, for that matter) is a selling point, I've no idea.

re: meat patties, the ad actually says "beef patties"... so not quite as disgusting-sounding. Shame that the picture does that job all by itself.

PS this is far from the only strange re-imagining of western food out there. Pizza with mashed potatoes comes to mind as one of the odder dishes I've come across...

Well, technically they're made of beef, so I suppose you could call them "cow patties"...

Lucky they didn't think of this for Windows 2000.

Lets hope the similarities end with the number 7!

The Windows 7 burger looks quite difficult to install. I am quessing it will cause sluggish system opperation for the first 12 hours and cause long delays to day to day opperations while the user tries to get rid of it! I just hope Windows 7 Software doesn't exibit the same problems!

How about an Apple instead?

Anyone else think McDonald's missed a trick by not bringing out a limited edition Snow Leopard burger at the same time?

Leopard might be tasty, you never know.

more of what

That fact that there's more of it doesn't mean it's any better than before.

Would 7x Vista be any better than a single? No, I didn't think so.

Win 7 is just a Vista Service Pack. Even MS has admitted as much, although not for attribution.

on sale in the country until 28 October.

After which time everyone who ate it will be dead and gone from either a heart attack or blocked intestine.

Needs a bit more

Maybe modify it a bit -- some cheese and bacon would be good.

Hmmm...

That burger is a just massive, greasy, bland, quick fix, that has virtually no nutritional value and would cause more problems long term than it will solve short term.

Sounds familiar.......

I love meat.

But that is entirely too much. Remember, folks, quality always trumps quantity.

That's why I run Slackware ... and grill my own burger, when I want one.

Had it

Having worked for BK many years ago - I think I've had this for my end of night break - I may have cut out the salad as being dangerously healthy though...

For the carnivores out there, it tasted as good as it looks!
