Burger King is hoping to be known as more than “The Home of the Whopper.”
This weekend, the fast food chain rolled out “Flame,” a new men’s body spray billed as “the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat.”
Ummm...I don't know about you, but I can't tell you the last time I was seduced by the smell of a hamburger!
What are the BK big wigs thinking??? Even if it is selling for only $3.99!
Here's a review of it from Amanda in Virginia:
I received Flame in the mail two days ago....yesterday I wore it to work for the first time. As a tattoo artist, our tip amounts vary greatly..... but yesterday not one tip was less than $50!!!!! I know it had everything to do with wearing flame....... THANK YOU! :)
Oh sweet Amanda...they were just trying to raise enough money so that you buy a different smell!
How did this come about anyway?
Did some guy go home after working an 8 hour shift at BK, go to bed without showering and his wife called him at work the next day to tell him: "When you get home tonight, don't take a shower because I loved that you smelled like a Whopper!" Did that guy then run into his boss' office and present his idea of a Whopper cologne and now we have FLAME?
I don't know, but I'm guessing by the look on this woman's face who was asked to smell it while dining in a Burger King that this won't be making any top seller's list anytime soon...
Now if reading this has made you hungry for a Whopper or Big Mac or whatever else you can order from your car then check this out.
My friend Rachel works with the ministry of Mission Nebraska who stewards several Christian radio stations in Nebraska and can also be heard on the web. I love My Bridge Radio because they play a lot of new worship songs I haven't heard yet. Here's what she shared...
Participate in The Christmas Gift that keeps on Giving!
All you have to do is:
1.) Print a flyer by clicking here .
The flyer will have the radio station's frequency and website address so they can tune in if they live in Nebraska or listen on their computer if you live in another state.
Also on the website it has "The rest of the story"...
We are giving because we have already received....the Gift of Jesus!!!
2.) Go through a drive-thru and pay for the person's order behind you.
3.) As you hand the money to the cashier, also give them the flyer you printed off to give to the driver behind you when the cashier tells them that their debt has already been paid.
I did it this morning...lots of fun to be a blessing - and who knows how God may choose to use this simple little act!!~Rachel.
I've done this before too throughout the year and it is so much fun and like Rachel said...you never know what God is up to! Be used by Him this Christmas season.
I will re-post the poem that was up here before Christmas. Was just too lengthy of a post and wanted to share the above with you instead.
