5 Dollar Footlong Thickburgeron August 2, 2010 at 6:05 am
This week, Carl’s Jr. & Hardee’s began market testing a new footlong cheeseburger. As you can see in the picture it’s 3 patties with 3 slices of cheese on a large footlong bread roll. The whole thing will sell for $4.50 and it’s being tested in southern California and Indiana to see how it goes over. You can read a little more about it over at USA TODAY if you’re interested.
So, here’s the awesome part: if you were a fan of my first comic WTH then you might remember I made a joke about EXACTLY THIS BURGER. Well, not exactly. My joke was a 5 dollar footlong thickburger and this is a $4.50 footlong regular burger, but the fact remains that I totally called it!! CALLED IT!
Well, either I predicted it or the fine folks at Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s must’ve read my comic and thought I was on to something great. Which I was. In that case, I’m fully in support of their new footlong burger but I also expect some free Hardee’s giftcards in the very near future. I think that’s a fair deal for being the inspiration behind the next great heartattack-maker. Right?
Anyway, for those that don’t remember or didn’t read WTH, I went ahead and dug up that old comic for you. You can find it in the archives here on or just read the classic comic below.
