looks pretty but the consequences will kill you.
mines the one with the Pepto in thepocket.
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 …
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...
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 !!!
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!
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...
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!
To start with, the burger should come in 3 (or is it 7?) sizes depending on the needs/wants of the victim and the pricing should match. Naturally The Whopper 7 Ultimate [Uruchimato?] should have every filling that Baagaakingu can muster and should retail for nothing less than 5000 yen. The Home edition is already displayed and the Professional edition would fit in somewhere in between.
Although one can start eating it much more quickly than previous Whoppers, one may find that eating speed and the whole Whopper experience deteriorates as one progresses.
On a final note, Windows 2000 would've been a disappointment in Japan for those expecting a cow's worth of burgers, since the Japanese reckon their years since the accession of the current emperor. That being said, the Heisei emperor would've been in power for 12 years then, so it would've been a better burger, but then I suspect that Windows 2000 is anyway the better OS...
p.s. El Reg needs a 7-burger icon.
Whopper 7 Starter
Only the bun is served - no burgers. Available as a starter only
Whopper 7 Home Basic
Only available in some countries, only contains 4 burgers
Whopper 7 Home Premium
Should be enough for anyone (also available as a family pack)
Whopper 7 Professional
Similar to Whopper 7 Home Premium, it includes a virtual burger that allows you to use your old condiments
Whopper 7 Enterprise
Doesn't smell, so you can eat it in a business environment without people glaring at you
Whopper 7 Ultimate
Vastly more expensive, still has 7 burgers, but if you look really really closely you might spot a gherkin or something to make you feel better about ordering it.
Whopper 7 E (discontinued)
Same burger, but with the salad removed so that you can choose your own supplier of vegetables. No longer available as Burger King have provided the ability for you to remove the salad and install your own.
I wonder if I can print that off, walk into burger king and ask them to make it 'my way'. (Id 'install' some bacon 1.0 too).
Reminds me of the buddist who walks into Burger king and asks "Make me one with everything".
Can't see anything about a meal deal though - surely you must want fries and a drink with that?
Love it, and (at the moment) would kill for one. After reading that, I'm so hungry my stomach thinks my throat's been cut.
Having said that, what would the Vista version be like? Slow to erase itself from your system? "Hangs" when you least want it to? Probably dozens of 700meg. patties, then forever downloading PFY-supplied smeg-infected 'mayonnaise' upgrades and the price would reflect the same?
Don't get me started on the XP version.
Paris, natch - she'd swallow an X-tra P^Hthick version. Sorry to rub it in, Paris.
This is an appropriate advertisement for MS, after all Windoze 7 and the Whopper have a number of things in common:
1 - They are both great to begin with but ultimately your left feeling unsatisfied.
2 - They are both overpriced
3 - If you consume too many, you will die.
4 - The product does not live up to the hype.
