Right Mind, Lost Mind, or ?

I've always heard (mostly from left-handed people) that "the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, and the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body, and therefore only left-handed people are in their right minds!" 

It's estimated that approximately 13% of the U.S. population is left handed.  Now I'll admit that I clearly understand and support Handicap-Accessibility rules, regulations and zoning ordinances.  I did not however realize that left handed people, (1 in 13 people in the U.S.) also struggle to survive in a right handed world.  Well Burger King claims to have now made life a little easier or at least less messy for the left-handed segment of our population with their introduction of ---- you guessed it "The Left-Handed Burger".

MIAMI, FL, March 31 -- Burger King Corporation today announced thelaunch of the new Left Handed WHOPPER, which will become availablenationwide tomorrow. America's most preferred premium hamburger will feature the trademark build of lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles,mayonnaise, ketchup and 4-ounce flame broiled hamburger patty, but the newly designed sandwich has been re-engineered to fit more comfortably in the left hand, thereby reducing condiment "spills" for left-handed hamburger lovers. It is estimated that more than 1.4 million left-handed customers visit U.S. Burger King restaurants each day.

I'm not sure if Burger King is using their 'Right Mind" or if they've 'lost their mind'.  I'm not sure if this should be listed here at Bluemaumau under Food, Humor or 'Legislation & Political Activism'.  But two things are for sure:

  1. Now that Burger King has brought the plight of the left-handers to the attention of America, I'm sure that in no time at all someone will be pushing to provide federal protection and anti-discremination laws for left-handers all accross America. 
  2. That I can now expect my local Burger King to further mess up my order by giving me a 'left-handed' burger instead of a 'right handed burger' --- thusly causing all of my condiments to spill out and mess up many a white shirt!  Hmmmm perhaps it is a good time to invest in a Dry-Cleaning Franchise?

Good Right Brain Logic but will it work?

Good idea by Burger King unless, as Dale indicates, the employees mess up and give left-handed burgers to right-handed customers and "mess up many a white shirt" and customers will leave the premises dressed in catsup, mustard, and relish for the day swearing never to enter Burger King again.

uhh..remember....

So whatever happened to:"I takes two hands to handle the Whopper?"I guess they just flushed those millions of advertising dollars down the toilet.FuwaFuwaUsagiKudos to my woman for pointing this out to me

Opportunity knocks

Clearly an opening for a franchisor dedicated to the fine art of ambidextrous consumption of one of America's favorite foods.  Mr Zee all you need to do is look for a concentration of Burger King stores and you have a business.  McDonald's, Wendy's, etc. are sure to follow.  Better get on this hot trend before it is too late.

Your Woman is Smart

And absolutely right! Kudos are deserved! Who, but a Giant, could handle a Whopper with just one hand? Maybe it was a different advertising firm who didn't coordinate the right and left-hand brain functions?

I guess I am a fool....

This is an April Fool's joke.Apparently I am a fool.FuwaFuwaUsagi
