The Windows 7 Whopper

I am pretty sure this would violate some FDA rules regarding nutrition, but in Japan Burger King marked the official release of Windows 7 by introducing the Windows 7 Whopper.

The Windows 7 Whopper has 7 beef patties– making it over 5 inches tall and well over 1,000 calories. Burger King is selling the special edition Whopper for 777 Yen, but only for 7 days (are you picking up on the Windows SEVEN theme?).

If it doesn’t violate nutrition rules, it at least violates common sense…and decency. Or, as PC World’s David Coursey suggests, “Maybe, with the “Windows 7 Whopper,” Microsoft is simply trying to finish what Vista started: Kill us all.”
