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.
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
