We’ve never eaten a burger with a bright red bun before, and we’re not sure if we’re ready to try.

On Tuesday, Burger King announced its latest burger with a gimmicky bun color: “The Angriest Whopper,” which is a follow-up to last year’s “Angry Whopper.” The limited-edition Whopper has hot sauce baked into the bun for added heat, plus fried onion petals, “spicy angry sauce” and jalapenos jammed inside it.

This isn’t the first time BK has fooled around with the sanctity of bun color. In October, they launched the highly spooky Halloween Whopper which had A1 sauce baked into the bun, making them black and Axel Schwan, Burger King’s global chief marketing officer, says the chain is trying to play off the success of that sandwich.

“We’re combining the power of these past hits into a star-studded sandwich we think our guests will unanimously agree is the next must-eat burger,” Schwan said in a statement.

We’re big fans of spicy, but we hope that the new sandwich doesn’t turn our poop any colors that poop isn’t supposed to be. That’s right, we’re throwing some playful shade at the A1 Halloween Whopper, which sent the Internet into a frenzy when people’s poop turned green after eating them.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

What terrifies me more is the fact they are trying to say that their sandwich will actually look like that. Usually when I go, I get burger patties halfway off the bun, cause all over the place and its gross. Focus more on good sammys and less on bun color

I was pretty sad when I got to the Namco Bandai booth however and found out they only brought their fighting games to be played there, which I didn’t bother to try. Breakout Voyager, made by Stian Thomassen based on Breakout, is a classic retro style breakout game with a bunch of falling balls. You could give yourself some leisure time between classes or just within the break time, however are not in front of your TV.
