The Burgers Aren’t Better At Hungry Jacks / Burger King …

Because I am an uncouth, unsophisticated slob – I have always based the quality of a hotel by the standard of their burgers.

Yes, I appreciate it’s not exactly a great metric – but it means more to me than so many of the poncy travel guides out there.

So ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, fat bastards and anorexic’s … may I introduce you to the King Burger from Hard Rock Hotels.


Now on first glance, it may not look much – but let me tell you, when you realise those ‘triangular sandwiches’ in the background are actually made from normal, full sized bread, you start to realise that the burger in the foreground is bloody huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge!

Not – however – so huge that our lovely new planner, Kaichin … a mere slip of a brilliantly smart woman … couldn’t shove it down her throat in the blink of an eye despite it actually being bigger than her entire head!!!

So Hard Rock, congratulations – we will most definitely be staying with you again.

Last week was about the potential of advertising and the lessons to remember to be brilliant and today is about burgers.

Winding down for Christmas are we? 🙂

At last a post with real substance. And your argument is backed up by irrefutable photographic evidence. This is planning at its best. 😉

Having just watched you eat more than the entire population of America, I would say this burger represents the equivilent of a ‘tic-tac’ to you Freddie. 🙂

PS: Have you got whiplash? Can we sure someone?

Size isn’t everything…

Funny, I use Hoi Sin Duck rolls as a marker for the quality of a shop’s sandwiches.

People who are 40 say “40 is the new 30”, so what should I make of your comment that “size isn’t everything” Mr M? 🙂

And for the record, thank you for commenting – I know it’s a crappy post but at least you made the effort unlike all the other sods who have disappeared into the ether.

They’ve got good taste though … ha!

I would read nothing whatsoever into it…

With plates the size of small nations I’m disappointed there were no beans.

More to the point how were the chips?

You think that Campbell plus beans is a good idea?

Comment by John

And why not?
