Police said 29-year-old Russell Francis Gomez threw frozen hamburger patties at his boss, then started knocking over equipment and poured cooking oil on the floor when the manager tried to go to the office.Employees got customers out of the store safely while Gomez "flipped the circuit breakers, overturned trash cans, and damaged electronic equipment," according to a release from the Lake City Police Department.Gomez got into his car and tried to leave, but two customers blocked him from leaving, because he was "saying he was going to return and making threats toward the manager," the release detailed. Gomez confronted one of the customers and spat in their face. The two customers "grabbed and restrained Gomez" until police arrived, according to the release. When police arrived, Gomez was bleeding from the mouth. Gomez was told to sit while police obtained statements from witnesses.

Typical fast food worker going about the daily grind just trying to make a paycheck and live so he can make a paycheck next week and live. Probably had a little hiccup, life got in the way, sometimes people fuck up. Who knows his reason. To err is to be human after all. Now I don’t know about Russell’s work ethic here. Maybe he fucked up too many times for his boss to forgive. What I do know is out of any burger chain, if you decide to throw an angry fit at your boss by ransacking the place and threaten your manager, Krystal Burger might be the worst option. I love little White Castle/ Krystal Burger’s sliders but that’s not gonna do any sort of damage with those thin little tiny frozen patties. You’re just not getting the appropriate fulfillment considering you’re gonna lose your job and go to jail anyways. If you worked at a McDonalds, you can just go ham on the ice cream machine. Wendy’s, take those fresh never frozen patties out of the freezer and chuck those meaty patties around. Bk? Throw those massive sesame seed buns in one hand, the massive patties in another. You throw a fit with little Krystal sliders you’re just gonna make a tiny mess. Probably clean it up in 15 minutes. If you want to tell your boss off, you’re gonna need a place that offers more.

Incase Any Peasants Want To Pretend To Be Sophisticated, Burger King Released A Wine Dubbed The “Whopper Wine”

Burger King has been going to great lengths for attention. After calling out McDonald's for a Whopper-Big Mac mash-up and putting patties on tomato buns, the fast-food brand has become a little ludicrous with its new ideas. And its latest does not disappoint. Introducing Whopper Wine, a Spanish vino that's been aged in flame-grilled wooden barrels and supposedly pairs perfectly with the chain's hallmark burger. It might sound outlandish to us but this is actually a nod to Burger King's roots in Spain. After opening its first location in the country back in 1975, the brand immediately added wine to its menu to appeal to locals. Now, to celebrate its 40th anniversary in Spain, Burger King crafted its own red wine to honor its tagline that "fire is what we do best." The bottles have been designed with the minimalist green, red, brown, and tan stripes emblazoned on the chain's paper take-out bags. And the wine on the inside them has been aging in wooden barrels that were first grilled over a flame, infusing a charred flavor that apparently complements the Whopper and "enhances its flavor."

You know what pairs really really well with a greasy sloppy fast food burger? The largest sized coke that the place offers. Seriously like 8oz cup of coke taste good but like a 44 oz one makes the burger taste even better. Thats all it takes folks, its not rocket science. I want the largest un healthy syrupy drink to go along with my thousand calorie burger. Im all for wine but thats not what I want with a fast food burger, especially not a whopper because whoppers suck compared to Big Macs. Do they even do this if its drive thru? If so they must be pretty non-chalant about drunk driving because if you order fast food, that will be eaten in the car. Don’t try to change things that don’t need to be changed. Fast food needs not be all fancy with a red wine.

Burger King Wants To Join Forces With McDonalds To Create The McWhopper

They have been rivals for decades but Burger King has decided to offer an olive branch to McDonald's - for one day only. The company is proposing the chains "settle the beef" by combining their best-known burgers – the Whopper and the Big Mac – into the McWhopper, with the two recipes separated by a burger bun. It would be sold for just 24 hours at a pop-up restaurant in Atlanta, which is equidistant between their respective headquarters in Chicago and Miami. Even staff uniforms and the takeaway bags would be a compromise – half in McDonald's red, and the other in Burger King brown. Burger King extended its invitation of friendship in full-page adverts taken out in The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune. It wants the "McWhopper" experiment to take place on 21 September, which has been declared by the UN as an International Day of Peace, with any proceeds donated to charity. However, customers wouldn't pay for their McWhopper with cash. Instead, they would be asked to sign a tray mat declaring who they will make peace with. In a proposal to McDonald's, Burger King said: "All these ingredients come together to build the burger some said would never happen. Some say the same thing about world peace. "Let's prove them wrong on Peace Day. Everything in our proposal is up for discussion, from the name right through to the packaging. "The only thing we can't change is the date, so let's talk soon." McDonald's is yet to comment on their rival's bold proposal.

Blasphemy, pure blasphemy. There is no chance in hell that McDonalds is the brain child of this abomination. Its those desperate assholes at Burger King driving this idea. Last year they had to merge with Tim Hortons pretty much just to pay utilities probably while McDonalds just grows its army. Like literally i think McDonalds has enough resources to over take a country at this point. Burger King saying they’re extending an olive branch to MickyD’s is a pure sad joke. McDonalds should just double down and create a whooper for a day and just push it on National Hate Day.

Now I don’t actually hate Burger King, but facts are facts. Burger King is just living past its prime. The heyday of the King has gone the way of the dodo bird. Their peak was when they released those Pokemon Gold Card. To this day, that was probably the single greatest Fast Food Promotional toy item history. You can’t deny that, but that was in like 1999. Its 2015. When the whole Burger King King commercials came out i could see a slow rise in business and chicken fries is a nice novelty thing but novelties don’t last. McDonalds has sausage, egg, and cheese biscuits. That right there is a generational talent. Egg McMuffin? Thats a dark horse championship contender. Sausage egg and cheese McGriddle combo breakfast with a hash brown and Orange Juice? Dynasty Reign. And thats just the breakfast menu that operates from 5 to 10:30 am. While Burger Kings struggling to make it to the post season McDonalds already won 3 championships before lunch hours. I don’t hate BK for trying everything they got in the tank to be relevant, but pretending like they’re the ones thats offering to help McDonalds by “joining forces” is just sad. Its Mayweather/ Pacquiao all over again. We wanted that fight like 10 years ago when everyone was in their prime.

P.s- McDonalds Agrees with me and thinks this whole idea is a joke and is laughing at the Kings face.

Some Chick Decided To Get her Senior Photos Taken At Taco Bell

Senior photos have always been the most unnatural pictures that are meant to seem untaught. We remember taking a senior photo while leaning against a fake brick wall, looking tough. All copies of it have hopefully been burned. But for Ritenour High School senior Brittany Creech of St. Louis, the inspiration for great senior pictures came to her in the form of Fourth Meal. The 17-year-old told The Huffington Post she jokingly tweeted about taking the photos at Taco Bell a few weeks ago. Then, Creech said, she started to take the idea more seriously. She spoke with photographer Brendan Batchelor, who was into it. The rest is viral Internet history. "People find it funny that I wasn’t joking about it," Creech said. "The employees thought it was great. They were laughing and they were like, ‘Are you serious?'" Creech said now when she goes into her local Taco Bell, people ask to take photos with her. "Now that it's on the news, it's a bigger thing," she said. Some told Creech they don't approve of the unique setting for the sacred high school tradition. But she said it's all in good fun. "It's honestly just a joke," she said. "It's nice to see something on the news that's not negative."

Im not gonna lie i kinda hate this move. I feel like Taco Bell has been turned kinda hipster ish. Guys for a long time have loved Taco Bell but Girls use to think it was gross. “Blah Blah Blah Ewww its not real meat i cant believe you’d eat that!” Thats the norm that I’m use to and i don’t like change. Then all of a sudden I feel like girls want to be Edgy and all “IDGAF I eat Taco Bell, im not like all the other girls except i kinda am but guys will think im cool because im eating Taco Bell.” Its annoying. Maybe I hate it because it felt sacred to me. Yea everyone did McDonalds and BK but Me and my friends especially stuck with Taco Bell through thick and thin. Maybe that makes us Hipster-ish but i dont care. We roll with the Bell till the death through think and thin and Animal meat scandals. Fuck this girl. She’s not even eating anything. All it is is here there drinking a soda, probably even just water. If you want to make your mark senior year by having Taco Bell in your senior photos then you should have a beefy 5 layer all in your grill. Beef Chalupas and a Mountain Dew Baja Blast till the death. Chicken Quesadilla to split with your boys.
