the challenge

Remember the days of decent updates, with thoughtful commentary and the asymptotic approach to the inaccessible origin, but you keep going anyway because it's all in the journey? Well those times were self-indulgent and big-paragraphed. Instead of all that jim-jam, here's a really unfortunate breakfast challenge that Burger King issued to a certain portion of the body phagotic in the 1980s:



So come on you, um, lots of people! And get a free drink while you're at it.

UPDATE: One of my readers believes that the above video is an artful fake. He claims that the word "muff" seems to be edited and the opening text is a later addition. Well, shucks, I say. What do you folks think?

"Hey!", some dude wearing rainbow suspenders cried, "I love muff! Away to Burger King for death on a flaky bun!"

Burger King: Putting the 'ass' in carcass for, well, at least since the early 80s.

I always thought on should offer the Muff Lovers and the Muff Tentative a free drink beforehand, not as an afterthought. It could make all the difference.

I love the other banned commercials below - especially the VW polo one... what a degenerate I am.

This has been edited listen to the edit you can clearly hear that the word has been cut off. He really says muffin. the text was a recent addition too.

Too bad - I definitely love muff but muffins? Not so much. I was this close to heading over to BK.

My guess is that the ad was actually a challenge for 'muffler lovers'.

This smacks of yonicentrism. Where are the ads for tasty, hot highly-processed [traditional middle school nickname for penis], breakfast foods?
McWeenie.
McDong.
Mmmmmmmm! The drive-thru Croi-package.
