RocketNews24, an English-language, Tokyo-based news site about Japanese culture, recently tested the limits — and patience — of local Burger King employees by ordering a burger with $80 worth of extra pickles. The result was a Whopper with more than 700 pickles.
The writers said the staff seemed happy to do it. They admitted that, every now and then, they like to see how much they can get away with at the restaurant, from ordering “Whoppers with 1,000 slices of cheese, 100 slices of onions (gross), and 1,000 slices of bacon.”
The stunts exemplify the fast food chain’s “Have It Your Way” slogan from the mid-70s. (remember the jingle? “Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce / Special orders don’t upset us / All we ask is that you let us serve it your way / We can serve your broiled beef Whopper fresh with everything on topper / Any way you think is proper, have it your way!”) Sorry if we got the song that stuck in your head now:
