Burger King

Write up a fast food resturant?

On the urging or number two, Sophia, I went to lunch today at Burger King. Not only would I not usually write up such an encounter, but typically, I would not write a "negative" review. I rather find good things than just complain. But the utter awfulness of today's lunch has forced me to report.

This Burger King (on Harlem just north of North Av., across from the Domino Pastries discussed below) reminded me of the old Saturday Night Live Routine with Dan Ackroyd as Leonard Pith Garnell discussing theater.

He would have said, "Today's dreadful lunch featured bad meat on bad bread sided by bad french fries served badly."

Is it possible at all, to make money selling the gushy, gray, gruel masquerading as meat at Burger King. The nearly liquid chickenish breaded substance that came out as nuggets were no better. Yet, the fries may have been the worst of all. Cold, with a coating of what, I mean what do you coat a fry with but still perfectly greasy, yuck!

Beware the King.
