OMG I reek like BK

Mmm… Hamburger

There is a Burger King not too far from where our offices are at work. About three years ago a colleague and I were walking by this Burger King and someone came out and exclaimed: "Oh my God— I reek like Burger King". We both thought this was a pretty ridiculous thing to say and used the phrase whenever we got something for lunch from there. I don't know if this person was in on the ground floor— but the new Burger King® Flame™ just came out.

I saw the announcement on the news but didn't put the two together. Low and behold, I get a Facebook message from this colleague saying "I smell like BK". This really changes the meaning of this phrase significantly. I can just imagine the applications…

  • You could go into a Vegetarian restaurant and wear the stuff as a sign of protest…
  • If you are Catholic and are not supposed to eat meat on Fridays— you could wear it to see if anybody is paying attention.
  • If you are a known Vegetarian or a Vegan and have a warped sense of humor, you can always wear it and make people think…

I'm sure there are others… but I'll just leave that up to you…

I just visited the Flame site and well that's really funny, but I wouldn't want to smell it.

Oh my word. I hadn't seen this, er, product. Good grief. I thought it was a joke at first, or just an ad campaign.

Maybe women could use it to REALLY get their men going. I mean, who wants their lady to smell like Chanel no 5 when she could smell like a Whopper.

I think I'll pass on that. It would be fun to spray on your dog's tail though.

I think I would like to smell like BK just cuz it's better than lots of perfumes out there.

Or maybe I would smell that way and go to McDonald's and see if they think I'm a spy.
