Charlie Crist Says "Oh My Word!" When The Burger King Puts It In His Mouth
Crist gets a mouthful.
That's what happened when Crist took a trip to Burger King corporate headquarters in Miami and sampled the new BK Bourbon Whopper, BK Fire-Grilled Ribs, and BK Funnel Cake Sticks.
According to the Miami Herald [click] he said "Oh my word, that is delicious. Get it away from me," after a bite of the burger.
The Bourbon Whopper carries lettuce, tomato, onions, mayo, bacon, pepperjack, and bourbon sauce.
Guess it was more meat than Crist could handle, or maybe he just didn't want the sauce to drip down his chin.
Crist didn't even dip his funnel stick in the white sauce, icing, for personal image reasons. And not that there's anything wrong with that, but anybody who compares a fast food version of a carnival food favorite to a French pastry, "It's like a beignet" said Crist, probably has his beret cocked to the left.
