Even Whopper's Wanna Pimp!

Have you seen the new, sooo pimpafied advertisements from Burger King?

If you've missed them, come to Los Angeles and drive south on Crenshaw Blvd. Just past the 105, on the left, across the street from the Hawthorne Airport, there's a gargantuan billboard that advertises, "Pimp My Whopper."

Now, a double whopper has 970 calories and 61 grams of fat. So, I wonder if the triple whopper is pimped out because it has even more fat and calories? I guess even more pickles equals ascendancy to pimp status.

The ad agency shouldn't have just stopped there. They should have gotten a pimp name for the whopper too. Really, Whopper sounds so...fat! How about changing the name to:

  • Master Pimp Triple Flash
  • Reverend Doctor Whopper Quick
  • Diamondtrim Whopper Dogg

I encourage readers who reside in the north suburbs of Chicago, specifically, Glencoe, Kenilworth and Wilmette, IL, to write in and let me know if you see any "Pimp My Whopper" billboards in your neighborhood. Now, I don't want to pick on the north-suburban Chicagoland area so if you are in Pacific Palisades or Malibu, CA or perhaps if you are in Harvard Square, you can also let me know if you've spotted one of these pimpdiculous billboards.

And, do value meals now come with iced-out pimp cups?
