Show me the angus!  
"Wah! I'm Carl's Jr, and I suck so bad I have to sue to get any attention at all."

I've never really cared for Carl's Jr. Food's always been mediocre (and often disgusting). On top of that, even if the company has tried to distance itself from its founder, I still can't help but remember what a world-class, renowned bigot Carl Karcher is.

But the assclownery apparently doesn't fall far from the tree, because now they're suing my beloved San Diego-based Jack In the Box over their commercial announcing their new sirloin burger (which is quite yum, btw).

(Article: Carl's Jr Gets Butthurt over Butt Joke).

In case you missed the LOLsy commercial (or you don't have JITB), here it is!

Apparently someone at Carl's Jr. needs to grow a sense of humor! dumbasses.

Mood: hyper

Carl's isn't by any means the only fast food place to have Anus Angus burgers, yet they're the only ones suing. Hmm...sounds like someone at CKE is a bit, uhm, anal...

Carl's Jr. is my weakness. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

There's something about Carl's Jr ads that really turn me off. Especially the Jalapeño Burger with that guy stealing all the other cokes, and I hate the voice over. On the other hand, Jacks are always so pleasantly surreal.

and I, too, am baffled by the pencil sharpener joke.

Third baffled guy on the pencil sharpener joke....

As for the burgers, yeah... Carl's Jr. has never been a big favorite of mine either. I did dig the Six Dollar Guacemole Burger for a while, and admit that I tried the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich once or twice (but then realized how truly disgusting their hot sauce was).

McDonald's angus is actually not that bad. I gave their third pounders a shot and am actually in love with the mushroom and swiss. Now if only their fries weren't so nasty....

I don;t get it. Why sue? Especially when nobody else is?

I love Jack in the box because they don't close (and at 3am nothing is better then a extreme sausage burger, yum!!!).
Not a fan of Carls and their commercials are odd!

I am gonna have to object here, mostly because I LOVE Carl's Jr...however, I do agree that JITB is 28937298 times better.

Wendy's and Burger King though...no gracias (since I very rarely eat at those places...blech)
