BK 3Q Revenue Lower than Expected

When Tina Fey in character as Sarah Palin joked that, "You know, we've got to accompany tax reduction and tax relief for

Americans. Also, having a Dollar Value Meal at restaurants, that's

going to help," I thought maybe she had a point.

People always have to eat, regardless of the economy, but when times are tough, maybe they'd be eating a bit cheaper. Like at places such as Burger King.

Well, the Miami-based BK announced its third-quarter revenue today, and it missed analyst expectation by about $25 million. But that's still up from the previous quarter, and sales in stores opened for at least a year are up by 1 percent. Regardless, stocks took a downturn after the news.

In the meantime, BK, get to pissing off more dignitaries. That should do wonders for profit.
