Burger King is going the Tex Mex route with its latest contraption. It’s half-burger, half-burrito and they are calling it, fittingly, the “Whopperito”.

Not to be confused with Sammy and the Waboritas,…

,…but a name that would sound great on a “Mystery Science Theater 3000” double bill with Burger King’s other arterial travesty, the Mac and Cheetos.

Thoughts on this latest gastrointestinal assault? Personally, I thought we couldn’t get any lower than Taco Bell’s Cap & Crunch delights.
