The Burger King Character is Out … Add One More the the Obama Unemployment List

 

MAYBE ITS NOT GOOD TO BE KING …

The creepy Burger King character is the latest victim of the difficult economic times. The Burger King has been kicked to the curb and has lost his crown. Honestly, I never understood the ‘Burger King” character as I thought it was so damn creepy and scary for children that they would run screaming to McDonald’s telling mommy to step on the gas and head for the Golden Arches.

The Burger King is now Unemployed

In the first of many steps to reinvent itself over the next year, the struggling fast-feeder Friday will announce that it’s dethroning the creepy King character — and other wacky, teen-targeting stuff — and refocusing on a customer it had all but forgotten: Mom.

In a new ad campaign set to air this weekend, Burger King will nationally roll out the California Whopper on Monday, made with what’s arguably the gastronomic trend of 2011: guacamole. In a serious image twist, the entire commercial shows only the sights and sounds of the fresh ingredients being washed, sliced and diced. There are no words, just pulsating music.

I don’t think the answer is to get rid of the King, just the look of the one you presently have. Maybe they can hire some one who may be in need of a job in 2012? Heck, there is no time like the present, hire him now so maybe he can leave office sooner and do a favor for America.

Just yesterday, the new jobless claims increased to 408,000 … add the Burger King to that list next week. Of course there is one more King we would like to add to the unemployment rolls in 2012.

      Whatever. Do you realize that blaming Obama for the demise of an outmoded, creepy fast food character makes you look like a blithering idiot. The lengths that you go to to blame Obama for every problem in this country is troubling at best. Good luck with that mental issue.

      SM: Huh? EJ how about you take some reading comprehension courses and take your head out of your A$$. You are a perfect example of an ignorant liberal who for whatever reason thinks its ok to provide an opinion based on a premise that does not exist. Dude, the post was not pages and multiple paragraphs. Are you telling me that you did not understand what was written? Seriously? Better go get the SRA’s out of the attic and reread them.

      Let me spell it out for you and use colors and connect the dots seeing that you are incapable of comprehending.

      “Maybe they can hire some one who may be in need of a job in 2012? Heck, there is no time like the present, hire him now so maybe he can leave office sooner and do a favor for America.”

      We are saying to hire Obama to replace the king, not that Obama had anything to do with his being kicked to the curb. Are you still with me?

      “Just yesterday, the new jobless claims increased to 408,000 … add the Burger King to that list next week. Of course there is one more King we would like to add to the unemployment rolls in 2012.”

      Translation … Um, add the Burger King to the list of people who will be filing first time unemployment claims next week. That’s a toughy. America needs to kick one more king to the curb in 2012, that would be Obama.

      How on Earth did you get that we were blaming Obama for the Burger King losing his job? WHO IS THE BLITHERING IDIOT? IF THE BLITHERING FITS DUDE, WEAR IT. You really are a fool. Of course you must have made the comment because you had a guilty conscience, so you must think that Obama was ultimately responsible.

      Do yourself a favor and take some reading skills so you don’t look like a blithering idiot.

      Unless we the people can get rid of Barry for cause, we will still be stuck with all the costs associated with a former President. Maybe he can go to Africa and find out how they live-the land of his claimed father.

      Re #1: No, let me spell it out for you, Red. Your headline reads, “The Burger King Character is Out … Add One More the the Obama Unemployment List” ADD ONE MORE (TO) THE OBAMA UNEMPLOYMENT LIST. Now who needs the SRA’s? You, my friend, are a perfect example of what may well get Obama reelected. Cursing and name-calling and overreaching will lose more votes for US than a Christine O’Donnell interview. And for heaven’s sake, get a proofreader, will you, *DUDE*? Sheesh!

      SM: CORRECT ELMER … what part about that is incorrect? An unemployed person is added to the Obama first claims unemployment list for the following week … AS THEY WOULD HAVE TO FILE FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE, DUH!!!

      It does not mean that Obama was responsible for the loss of the job as you claimed in your unintelligent interpretation of whatever reading comprehension you are using. No where in the post did it say Obama was responsible for his loss of the job, yet that is what you claimed in your previous post. Read what you posted.

      There is no proof reader required, you on the Obama Kool-aid bandwagon need to get a clue. Sorry, but too many Democrat friends of mine, let alone Independents have stated they will never vote for Obama.

      Re #3: OK, so I say I’m afraid you are going to do things that will help get Obama reelected, and you say I’m “on the Obama Kool-aid bandwagon.” You’re right. You don’t need a proofreader. You need a proof-thinker.

      SM: I am working on a project for Battle ground states and one’s that look like they will become battle ground in 2012 that have always been considered “Democrat Blue”, that will analyze county votes, state, etc.

      Obama is doing a good enough job to run people off.

      Some people think he is not up to the job. I used to think that. Now I know he is purposely doing what he is doing. Obama was branded “The One” and the Savior of the Democrat Party after his victory in 2008. It turns out, he is their Destroyer.

      It will be a long time before anyone like Obama is ever elected again. And by “like” I mean some one who is so liberal.
