Burger King’s Japanese Meat Monstrosity

April 13th, 2011 | 6 comments | Posted by Diana

Burger King just launched a new sandwich (using the term loosely here) for sale in Japan only:

The MEAT MONSTER: two hamburgers patties, two slices of cheese, a chicken breast, three pieces of bacon, mayo, lettuce, tomato and onion. For those who really want it “their way,” a fish patty, fried egg and teriyaki sauce are all additional options.

Okay, so I’m not even going to talk about the calories in this thing (1160, twice a Whopper’s) or whether anything that is processed, transported, and preserved as much as the items in this kind of fast food can even truly be called “food.” Whether you’re a gelatin-eschewing vegan or a proud meat-on-bone-eater, conscious eating is good eating, from both a moral and pragmatic (Howdy Earth, we’re killing you!) standpoint.

When mass-produced meat is piled on mass-produced meat for the sake of, well, mass, and gobbled down with no recognition of the individual components, or their flavors, or the nourishment they provide–it’s a shame. It’s a big fuck-you to our bodies, to the animals that died to be part of this “anything that fits” flesh Jenga. It celebrates the industry of mass produced edibles. It applauds indulgence and thoughtlessness and gluttony. It’s a fuck-you to food. And dear gawd, I love food more than anything. I will CUT you if you fuck with food.

But seriously guys, that thing just looks GROSS. Tell it to leave Japan alone!

    Well, that’s one way to keep Japan from making the U.S. bad when comparing national health stats:-/

    All the fast food chains are now in Taiwan too, and private restaurants are competing with them.

    This sandwich and Japan’s nuclear crisis remind me of an old saying -
    How do you eat an elephant? One piece at a time.

    Aside from all those completely valid point Diana, the other issue here is that picture represents the “classed up” version for advertising. What in God’s name would the “Tuesday afternoon” version look like? I swear, that picture is watching me with gross little chicken eyes…Make it stop. MAKE IT STOP!
