Cool Thing Of The Day

Cool And Interesting Thing Of The Day To Do At The University Of Wales, Aberystwyth, #34:

Go into Burger King, and ask for an nuclear-powered intercontinental ballistic duck-burger, with medium fries and a Sprite. Get rather upset when they refuse to serve a nuclear-powered intercontinental ballistic duck-burger. Ask them what kind of establishment they are, anyway, that doesn’t serve nuclear-powered intercontinental ballistic duck-burgers. Ask for a complaints form. Half way through filling it in (and when the staff are thoroughly scared and/or confused), ask them what you asked for. When they reply, look embarrassed and apologise, and say that you meant a Double Whopper. Shuffle away sheepishly with your burger.
The whole affair would have been a lot less fun if I hadn’t had my floormate in there with me, trying desperatley to work out whether I was doing it as a joke or had actually (finally) lost my marbles.

The ‘cool and interesting things’ were originally published to a location at which my “friends back home” could read them, during the first few months of my time at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, which I started in September 1999. It proved to be particularly popular, and so now it is immortalised through the medium of my weblog.
