Burger King is Testing Home Delivery

Burger King's Stuffed Steakhouse Burger
Soon to be stuffed in a thermal bag. Surely that's good for you.
Right now in Washington, D.C., Whopper-craving citizens can get front-door delivery. Yes, oh yes, Burger King is rolling out a pilot program for bringing the meat to you -- in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. It comes with a $2 delivery charge and you must order a minimum of $8 (or $10 depending on the store, according to the LA Times). Someone Occupy me an order of chicken fries, amiright?

More important, as a spokesperson for Burger King told the Times, the delivery method will use "new packing technology" with "thermal bags" to keep the everything really damn hot. We'll see about that, Burger King.

It's worth noting that Burger King's been delivering internationally for a while now, but pending a successful run (maybe President Obama will sneak a late-night Whopper order when Michelle's out?), the program could mosey down here. We're interested, if only to test the 24-esque thermal packaging. Now if we can just get them to deliver some mac and cheese stuffed onion rings, we'll be all set.

French fries post-drive thru can be nasty.  Post-delivery?  Blech.

Fortunately they are smart enough to pilot this first, because it has FAIL written all over it.

On the other hand, never underestimate our laziness and sh!tty taste.

Why don't they just invent a BK I.V. system?  No need to expend any energy. Enjoy your fat and salt without having to open your mouth.

i used to like burger king. then i smelled the inside of a couple of them. and there was the time i pulled into a drive thru of one near downtown dallas and got told "WE DON'T HAVE HAMBURGERS WE ONLY HAVE BREAKFAST" at a BURGER KING.   i wondered about a burger king with no burgers....talk about all hat no cattle...

Yeah, I did. They weren't Louie Mueller's or Smoke's...but they were from BK and were completely great.

(Thanks for the tip, TW)
