Our day was made when we found out that Burger King was going to start selling booze. Sipping on a beer while devouring a Whopper and fries sounds like the greatest thing in the world. HAS SOMEONE FINALLY BEEN LISTENING TO OUR PRAYERS?
That answer was quickly answered when we found out the catch – it’s only going to be served in the UK.
WHY?! Lucky English bastards.
According to Metro, “Burger King has just won a drinks licence for its restaurant in Bury St Edmunds (where else?), and has applied for three more at its Newcastle-under-Lyme, Blackpool and Hull branches.” [sic]
A few restrictions do apply – the fast food restaurant agreed to serve only one beer per adult, not serve after 9pm, and will prohibit patrons from drinking outside of the restaurant – but other than that, things are fair game!
Naturally, people are pretty damn excited about it:
A happy time indeed. Now, who’s going to let us crash on their couch?
