Rats: A perverse miscellany

Watch out for the special sauce on McDonald's new burger. (Not terribly original humour, but it does illustrate that the political movement that defaces billboards in order to subvert their meanings is still active in Brisbane.)

rattus_t_rat has posted his own (ratty) perspective on my new video.

We have Burger King here, but most of the franchisees operate under the name hungry Jack's because of a dispute with a trademark troll when they first started business in Australia.

So what does your non-poofy nothing suss version of the logo look like?

Um, that's not screaming pink. It's manly blood red that's been weathered in the harsh Australian sun. (We take discolouration for granted here.) You would never catch us doing anything even remotely poofy in this country.

That would explain why Hungy Jack's are using an angry scotsman to promote their Angus burger.

And Burger King competed against itself in Australia? And lost? But I have seen a couple of Burger King outlets in Australia. Admittedly, one was in an airport, presumably to make the American tourists feel more at home, but I'm sure I've seen one out in the wild.

I've had their bacon & cheese Anus burger and it's surprisingly good for McDonalds. It's their only burger that isn't total crap.

It's still totally inferior to the Jack in the Box Ultimate Cheeseburger.

I would suppose that's an accurate description of the beef used by McDonald's!
