At a southwest Burger King, some employees thought it’d be cool to really sock it to the man.
That would be, man in blue.
But it didn’t go as they may’ve hoped.
A cop ordered up a meaty delight at the royal restaurant — and I gotta say, a Whopper is absolutely delicious — in Clovis, New Mexico.
But the sloppy sustenance he received came beefed up by some slighting sausage: Some goon had drawn a pig on the wrapper.
Officer Timo Rosenthal posted a photo to Facebook, supplemented by the caption “When you order food in uniform.”
“Well, while on lunch break (and in uniform) I ordered food at Burger King and received this. The patties were burnt and the burger was of very poor quality. Guess that was the last time I ate at Burger King in Clovis, NM.”
A spokesperson for the burger bistro commented to Fox News on the indignity:
“What occurred is unacceptable and not in line with our brand values. When made aware of the incident, the restaurant owner immediately reached out to the officer involved to apologize…”
BK’s trying to make it good:
“The restaurant is offering free meals to uniformed officers and will provide a catered lunch to the police department as a gesture of goodwill.”
The Clovis Chief of Police told Albuquerque’s KRQE he’s disappointed that any of his crew would be disrespected.
You may be glad to know that the parties responsible for the picture of pork were fired.
And you may be shocked to learn that the hogwash was hatched by five of ’em.
Isn’t that virtually the entire crew at any given time at a Burger King??
If I was a cop, every day of my career, I think I’d take my lunch.
You law enforcement readers: What’s been your policy on eating out in uniform? I look forward to finding out.
