    Burger King franchisee says man's claim untrue that he found a condom in his Whopper

    RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) _ The owner of a Burger King franchise says there's no merit to a man's claim that he bit into an unwrapped condom while eating a sandwich he bought there.
    Franchise owner Carrols Corp. of Syracuse, N.Y., said it "is confident that no Carrols employee placed any foreign object" on Van Miguel Hartless' food, the company said in a statement released Tuesday.
    Hartless, 24, of Fair Haven, claims in a lawsuit that he bought a Southwestern Whopper at the restaurant in Rutland on June 18 and made the discovery when he got home and started eating it. The suit, filed last month, seeks damages for pain and suffering, emotional duress and medical expenses.
    The company said it plans to file a formal response to the lawsuit soon.

    Burger King has gone downhill so quickly I would not doubt it.

    Lotta Subways have gone into the shitter, too. They handed out franchises the way they toss out candy at parades. A good number of them are freakin' terrible.

    Isn't that like taking a dive from the ocean floor?

    That's what he gets for ordering a Southwestern Whopper in fucking Vermont. Christ, it's not like somebody took a bite out of it.

    It was wrapped. Maybe someone was sending him a message, or deciding to promote safe sex. What's the problem?

    I wanted a CONDIMENT, not a CONDOM!

    It said "unwrapped." It failed to mention, however, whether or not it was chock full of semen.
