burger slayer

From Burger Slayer to the Local Media

A couple of quick Burger Slayer updates....

I went to lunch at Hardee's today with yarbiedoll. When we started to approach the counter, the manager recognized me from prior visits and proclaimed "Here's the Burger Slayer!" It was pretty funny and fun to be recognized.

About an hour ago, I got a call from someone at CKE Restaurants (the parent company of Hardee's). She congratulated me for my mighty victory as Burger Slayer and told me that they wanted to contact the local media about me. A marketing campaign like Burger Slayer was designed to encourage people to do exactly what I did -- get all my friends to have fun with it, write about it in blogs, etc. So the folks at Hardee's are happy to see that I'm having a great time as the new Burger Slayer. I don't know if anything will come from them contacting local media, but it's pretty cool. We'll see what happens.

I gave sidelobe an autographed photo today. He took a picture and put it in his blog.
