10 Friends for a Burger?

Has anyone tried this?
Man, I knew I should have been more active on facebook.

A Whopper Sacrifice for Facebook

Do you have too many ‘friends’ on Facebook? You know, the ‘friends’ that paid you no mind in high school but then, when they find you on Facebook, it’s all good times and buddy-buddy. Maybe you thought you were living in the 1930’s when you introduced yourself with your full name at that corporate event and woke up the next day to find friend requests filling your inbox.

Well get down on your knees and give thanks for the advertising geniuses working for Burger King these days. First they brought us the brilliantly hilarious BK perfume site, and now here comes a Facebook application that will help you trim the fat on your ‘friends’ list without hurting too many feelings in the process.

The new app is called **Whopped Sacrifice **and it rewards you with a coupon for BK’s signature burger for every 10 ‘friends’ you manage cut loose. Each time you delete a ‘friend’ from your massively cluttered list, the application sends a notification to the banished party via Facebook’s news feed explaining that your desire for a Whopper is stronger than your love for the unlucky former ‘friend.’ The app also adds a box on a user’s profile page charting their progress toward the free burger with the line, “Who will be the next to go?”

The application is available on Facebook and at WhopperSacrifice.com.


A report from someone who has actually used the app. Turns out that BK sends the coupon through the snail-mail and it takes 2-4 weeks(!). Booo Burger King, booooooo! C’mon y’all, why not just e-mail it? We do live in the future, remember?
