Ringers and Bagglers
Cutesy messages on bags and food containers used by fast food restaurants seldom amuse me. Burger King, however, is currently running some funny ones.
On the paper bag I was given at the drive-thru, I read, “Official Baggler Procedure: French fries that have attempted to escape from their container only to strand themselves in the bottom of the bag are called ‘bagglers.’ Bagglers are fair game. The first to open the bag and retrieve the baggler gets to eat the baggler. Therefore, it is in one’s best interest to be the keeper of the bag.”
Even though I was the only one in the car was obviously the “keeper of the bag,” fishing for bagglers is still kind of cool. Alas, there were none this time, but the container that was full of potential bagglers had another message, “Ringers: Occasionally, you’ll get an onion ring that doesn’t play by the rules. An outsider. A lone loop in a sea of spuds. A Ringer. But don’t be alarmed. This is a good thing. An extra treat, just for you. Though Ringers may not appear often, if they did, would they really be so special?”
Nope, no ringers this time, either.
If you’ve seen other messages on BK packaging, please share.
