Burger King stacks fries onto new French Fry Burger (spoiler alert: it’s gross)

1378207723954.cached

Welp, Burger King, you’ve outdone yourself this time. Just when we thought we’d hit our cap of dirt cheap fast food monstrosities designed, apparently, with the express purpose of fattening our already saggy guts and making sure our kids have the best possible shot they can at developing diabetes and/or high cholesterol, you went ahead and created this.

The Burger King French Fry Burger. A burger. Topped with fries. Because it’s not enough to have a side of fries with our greasy, mystery meat patty. No, we need to cram a handful of salt and carb bullets into our big mouths at the SAME TIME. Guess it’s called fast food for a reason.

The burger clocks in at 360 calories and 19 grams of fat. Better yet, it only costs $1! That means I, the loyal BK customer who has given up on both health and dining standards, can afford a whole sack of these if I want! (And I do. I want. All the time.)

Perhaps this is an operation meant to get us back to No. 1, where we belong— a distinction those fatties in Mexico ripped from our greasy fingers when they waddled past us to become the world’s fattest country earlier this year. NOBODY BEATS AMERICA. NOBODY.

Or maybe it’s just a really gross gimmick (and a pretty lame one, at that) designed to lure more chubby chumps into BK.

Either way, we’re not biting.
