King Of Clean

by AM Nelson (writer), Los Angeles, August 12, 2008

Credit:

In Ohio, Burger King employee turns kitchen sink into personal bubble bath, complete with audience.

“I’d like a number nine combo with a diet Coke, no mayo.” That is the oblong-shaped fried chicken sandwich with fries (for those who don’t have the menu memorized). I became a secret fan while living in the anti-fast-food, anti-drive-through town of San Francisco. The corner of Ninth and Howard in SoMa supplied my Jetta with gas, a walk-up Starbuck’s for caffeine, and a blessed drive-through Burger King for those days where grease was a necessity. Homeless are ever present to relieve your center console of change as the aroma of processed meat fills the car. Before the first bite, a soft squeeze of the bread releases amber drops of dietary hazard that boggle the health-conscious part of the rational brain. Combo nine is a secret heaven to the senseless senses.

Perhaps my guilty pleasure of the past may be changed to “I’d like a rubber ducky combo with a diet Coke, no drain hair.” (Or insert the latest licensed movie toy for the ducky.)

In the heart of family values and Midwest ideals, a Burger King employee took a bath in the restaurant’s kitchen sink. Then the brilliant fellow named as “Mr. Unstable” posted his bath video on the Internet. I guess he did BK his way.

NBC 2 On Your Side reported the story at http://www.wdtn.com/global/story.asp?s=8825514 detailing the local health inspector’s interest and Burger King’s response. Enjoy bath time with Mr. Unstable through the link…yes, if you must, watch the splish-splash (photo credit to same).

Several employees and a manager were present for Mr. Unstable’s bath time antics. The sink was sanitized, utensils disposed. Involved employees were fired, and a refresher course on sanitation was to be fated among those who remain.

Which begs the question, “If five people didn’t know that bathing in the sink was a no-no, then what is a refresher course on sanitation going to offer?” When my mama bathed me reflection group time will be thrown in the personal hygiene section. Perhaps a thumb-sucking resolution seminar will be paired with the hand-washing segment.

It is a comfort to believe that the sinks are smaller in the tight city of San Francisco…a comforting belief based entirely on nonsense.

I saw this on G4. Very strange....

Just proof that we are probably in End Times....

Or, that stupid people will do anything to get themselves on TV.

Andy Warhol was right and the Internet is that venue.

Thanks for reading and the comments! Wouldn't "End times" call for your mom to be more proud of 15 minutes on the toliet?  I guess we can just be glad that Mr. Unstable's videographer was not his mother.  I am happy to see no one has said, "Pass the soap, I'm jumping in!"
