We sent our new intern MacKenzie to pick up Burger King's new Bacon Sundae, and this is how it went:

MacKenzie: One Bacon Sundae please.

Cashier: You actually WANT one of those?!?

We did. We did want one of those.

Peter Grosz: This is the first time in history that two rights have made a wrong.

Ian: If now they're just making things based on what got mixed up in the dumpster, I can't wait for the Snarling Raccoon Whopper.

Ian: This is disgusting. The only useful thing about this is it's a good way to hide your bacon.

Grosz: Yeah, if you're on a diet and you don't want anyone to know you're eating bacon, just hide it in this healthy ice cream sundae.

Make sure and leave the lid on because the bacon sundae cannot breathe in our atmosphere. i i

Ian: This pig probably regrets thinking, "boy, I hate rolling around in mud and waste. I wish I could roll around in ice cream."

Eva: This is literally pig heaven. This pig is in its afterlife.

Robert: I really admire the researchers at the Royal Burger Academy for continuing to explore previously unknown bacon combinations. I heard they're about to open the first bacon suspension bridge.

Ian: This is a sign the Burger King has gone insane with power.

Grosz: Good news, my people! You shall have bacon. HURRAY! And ice cream. HURRAY! Together. Oh.

Robert: Dipping your spoon in and hitting bacon is just wrong.

Mike: Yeah, it's like drilling for oil and hitting an old graveyard. Now this dessert is haunted.

[The verdict: kind of a split decision. I thought it was totally disgusting, but Mike liked it. Eva at first thought it was disgusting, but then took a second bite, and liked it. So, really, the only thing we've learned here is that Eva is always willing to give you a second chance, even if you're a bacon sundae.]
