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…
