I heard this on the radio the other day... basically they were trying to sell you a whopper like pharmaceuticals sell drugs and their "3 questions" made no sense:

1) Are you hungry?
2) Do you have a dollar?
3) Do you think a Whopper is better than a dollar?

If you answered yes to two of three questions, the Whopper is right for you!

----

Can somebody please explain how answering yes to 2 of the questions, but no to one would result in the Whopper being right for me? If I'm hungry and I have a dollar, but don't think a Whopper is better than a dollar, then I don't want a Whopper. If I'm hungry and I think a Whopper is better than a dollar, but don't have a dollar, then it can't buy a Whopper. If I have a dollar and think a Whopper is better than a dollar, but I'm not hungry, then I wouldn't buy food.

I've not heard this radio ad yet, but it sounds like Burger King is asking the three questions to consumers as if the restaurant chain were administering a polygraph examination.  I've not had a Whopper in ages, and no, not even for a dollar, would I want a Whopper Jr., let alone the big sandwich!  I'll stick to the chicken crisp sandwich if I am on a budget and want to eat at Burger King, since the only other sandwich I like, the BK Veggie, is overpriced.

I need my ROFL emoticon from another board for this one, I swear, it requires the little guy pounding his fists and feet on the floor! Too funny!
