Burger King International: Poutine, Bang Bang and Other Weird Meals

Miami-based fast food giant Burger King has announced that they're entering the Canadian Poutine market with the addition of the Canadian specialty to their menu.

That got us wondering just what other worldly delights the King dishes out in other countries. Here's what we found:

10. Poutine (Burger King Canada)
Fresh golden fries smothered with cheese curd & piping hot gravy. For an additional buck, get your poutine served angry with hot sauce or baconized with pig flesh.  We just have one question - isn't cheese curd what Little Miss Muffet ate when a spider scared the crap out of her? No thanks, buddy.

9. Brekky Wrap (Hungry

Jack's Australia)
Don't ask us why Burger King is called Hungry

Jack's in Austalia because we can't get a straight answer. But

considering that this country/continent has real-live Tasmanian Devils

why would you expect anything less weird? This Brekky Wrap isn't

necessarily strange. It's a wrap filled with eye bacon, sausage, egg and

cheese. But wait - eye sausage?  Better than Tasmanian sausage, we suspect.

8. Fiesta Corn and Mandarin Oranges (Burger

King Korea)
We were expecting fish

heads, scorpions or worse when we checked in at the BK Korea website.

What we found was the usual, with the additions of corn and mandarin

oranges. On the dessert menu, by the way. Which poses the question -- is these where all our childhood

leftovers were shipped to?

7. Spicy Mexican Whopper

(Burger King Germany)
Nothing says Germany quite like the Spicy

Mexican Whopper, an amusing combo of beef patties, cheese, jalapenos,

potatos and sour cream (gag)...Here's the ironic part. The Mexican

Whopper is not available in Mexico (thankfully neither is a German Whopper).

6. Churrascos (Burger

King Argentina)
Argentina is known for its beef, which is why we

weren't surprised to find churrascos on the menu. And we also shouldn't

have been surprised when BK turned this traditional steak sandwich into a

meat hockey puck, laden with mayo on some bread.

5. Batata Supreme

(Burger King Brazil)
Oh sweet lord have mercy! Fries covered with

cheese and bacon with a side of onion rings and chicken tenders. You

would think girls in thong bikinis would be enough to give a man a heart

attack -- now there's this!

4. Fish and Bammy Platter

(Burger King Jamaica)
What the f**k is a bammy and why the hell am I

eating filet-o-fish for breakfast? Because you're in Jamaica, mon. As

the website says, "get ready for a mouth-whupin'."

3. Bang Bang Salad (Burger

King Taiwan)
Make all the jokes you want. That just means you're

jealous. Can you possibly imagine all the ten-year-old snot nosed kids

running into BK for a stupid comment if we put bang bang on the menu in

the U.S.? Yeah, me too.

2. Spam and Egg Sandwich Shots

(Burger King Japan)
Leave it to the Japanese to take the most awful

American invention of all time, Spam, and turn it into a mass-produced

breakfast sandwich. We shudder to think of Japanese schoolgirls in

Hello Kitty barrettes scarfing down this as a nutritional meal. And the

name - Spam shot - sounds like a close-up on some porno scene to us. Fail.

1. Beer (Burger King Spain)
El Rey serves cerveza in Spain. We just booked a nonstop to Madrid.
