WTF: Have It Your Way

(Burger King advertisement)


Now now, settle down.  The “WTF” doesn’t mean what I think you think it means, because if it did mean what I think you think it means, then the “WTF” would be followed by at least a single question mark or an exclamation point.  And as you can clearly see in the above title, the “WTF” is followed by a colon, and so couldn’t possibly mean what I think you think it means.

So what does it mean?  It stands for “Win, Toss, Fail” – “Toss” is short for “toss-up,” as in a toss-up between a “win” and a “fail.”  Depending on how you want to look at it, to call something a “toss” is to say that you either don’t care or are neutral.

I will be randomly posting interesting things I come across that I’d like to get your input on.  Today’s edition of WTF is about a new cologne Burger King came out with.  Yes, Burger King, the fast food burger franchise, Home of the Whopper, whose motto is “Have It Your Way.”

The new fragrance is called Flame by BK, and smells like, you guessed it, meat.  It is a meat-scented body spray. I’m assuming that the meat scent is of the flame-broiled variety.

You can read more about Flame here.

So what’s the verdict?  Win, Toss, or Fail?

    Fail! Who wants to smell like a burger? I hate it when I grill and my clothes end up smelling like what I cooked. Smelling like meat is only going to make people hungry. Like when I go outside in the summer and can smell the Burger King right around the corner from me. Makes me crave food.

    win/epic fail….
    any company that can sell a cologne that smells like meat to people.. and actually have potential of selling wins… anyone who buys it being serious… epic fail
    just shows how much friggin ccontrol they have 😀 I find this quite funny… although if I had a boyfriend who bought this and was serious.. I would never et him live it down… but for some reason if I made it an xmas gift or whatnot… I would laugh my ass off 😀
