Vegetarians and health freaks look away now, because Burger King has launched a stomach-churning Windows 7-themed Whopper. Burger King Whopper 7 Burger King's Windows 7 Whopper is on sale in Japan The software-sponsored sandwich is filled with not one, not two, but an unbelievable seven meat patties. The burger went on sale …
looks pretty but the consequences will kill you.
mines the one with the Pepto in thepocket.
WIndows 7 whopper
Should have a health warning on it as it would probably contain a lot of bugs, worms, viruses etc.
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' - 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. :)
My colleague said he reckoned he'd BSOD if he ate one of those.
I love the way the site loads so slowly that you can't tell when the tower might end.
Bring it here
They should bring that to the UK, might get more than 1 person in the place then.
See, that's why I love Microsoft....
....you'd never get Apple thinking like that :-)
I can feel my arteries screaming for animal fat now. How much to get to Japan?
@Jelliphiish - (The first posting from Jelliphiish)
Are you talking about the Burger or the Operating System?
Thats what i call bloatware.
I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT
This satisfies the Canivore in me !!!!!!
Im printing this off and as soon as my pay comes in im marching to the nearest BK and see'ing if they are going to be a good sport !!!
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.
I want one. What more can I say? I certainly want one more than I want Windows 7.
Paris, 'cos she likes manly meat.
I'm lovin' it
No, seriously, I want one.
"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!
Looks tasty to begin with but will soon have you vomiting as it's still the same shit as before, only more of it.
That looks bloated.
Grenade icon for the 'Mr Creosote' effect.
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...
I take it that FAT is still widespread, yes?
All that meat will block your arteries....
.....and therefore result in the blue scream of death.
@ meat patties
Well, technically they're made of beef, so I suppose you could call them "cow patties"...
Why, oh why, did I have to see this right before lunch?
P.S. Just think what we have to look forward to when Windows 23 ships!
P.P.S. Mine's the one with the multiple, oversized, insulated pockets.
Lucky they didn't think of this for Windows 2000.
Look, I get a jones for a Bk cheeseburger now and then, but dayumm! Al Sharpton couldn't finish that thing.
Where was the Windows 2000 BK Whopper?!
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.
If this was in the States...
...the cues would be longer waitin' for this thing than W7.
Wash it down... ahhh,...cool and refreshing...!
Thats a lot of bloat
see title :)
Arm and a leg
I knew that Windows 7 would cost an arm and a leg. It appears to be costing some cows their arms and legs.
Where's the bee...
Oh wait, I see it.
That is one hell of a burger.
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.
@Jason Togneri - shame on you making me mess up my monitor.
Now I'd like to try the snow leopard burger too.
Waiting for 2009 server..
I'll never go hungry again!
Windows 7 = bloatware. Just as this burger shows.
Just like the BK menu...
... it looks fantastic in the photo advert ...
... but the real thing will fail to meat up to expectations...
As if Stevie boy ...
... hasn't been serving up his own whoppers for years.
... So, is that one burger for every install disk, then...?
The Proof Is In The Picture...
Now we have a graphical comparison of just how much BLOAT is in M$ Windowz software..
I'm staying with Linux and FreeBSD Unix.
Needs a bit more
Maybe modify it a bit -- some cheese and bacon would be good.
The heart because this would definitely be Heart Healthy.
I need that burger in my life.
Mines the grenade, as that is what my heart would become after eating that.
too much green shit still
it needs more cheese.
That product gives me indigestion just looking at it.
The BK burger gives me indigestion too.
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.
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.
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!
"It looks like you're trying to eat an unfeasibly large hamburger..."
"...would you like some help with that?"
Mine's the shellsuit with ketchup stains on it
