And that unique taste combination of bun, char-fired meat, a little lettuce and a tomato without special sauce is what made David S. Kime Jr. of Manchester, PA coming back, even after death.
Daughter Linda Phiel recalled, 'His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr.' So when, at 88, Dave joined the Burger King drive-thru in the sky he wanted the living to sample his cuisine at his funeral.
The funeral train went to Burger King on Dave's dying wish and picked up 40 orders of delectable delights and got him his last Whopper Jr.
Food choices were a bone of contention between Dave and his daughter. After a few years of trying to keep dad on a 'healthy' diet Dave bolted. 'He would say, 'I won't live longer, it will just seem like it because I'll be more miserable faster,' Phiel said.
So Dave began his love affair with Burger King and forced daughter, Linda, to drop that last sack of burger and fries on top of his casket as it was being lowered into the ground. Betcha Ronald McDonald won't take a Big Mac with him.
As Dave himself aptly noted, when you get to be 88 you should be able to do whatever you want even if what you want is to load up on butt-filling fries and sugar-soused sodas without and to the end.
