iPhone Pic: Point Sixty Nine Cents

It's not as easy to see as this one, but Burger King will apparently allow you to upgrade from french fries to apple fries for the low, low price of less than 7/10 of a penny.

Point Sixty Nine Cents

Stop the madness!

  1. Maybe i should go to burger king and order one, and give them a penny and say "keep the change."

    - then argue about getting the item for the price on the menu.

    😛

    I'm always tempted to do that sort of thing, but two things hold me back. First, you'd come off as a bit of an ass. Or more than a bit. And second, I'm afraid that the person I talk to simply won't have a clue what I'm talking about - why ".69 cents" is not the same as "$0.69" - thus sending me into a deep, deep depression over the stupidity of the average person.

    Then again, the second may have already occurred - after all, this is national promotional material for Burger King. Someone fairly high up in the company has already missed this.

  3. This sort of oversight really irks me, as does poor grammar and style on adverts.
