A DELICIOUS GOODBYE: Man gets his last Whopper Jr. during his funeral procession. Before you make the obvious joke, note this:
A Pennsylvania man who died at age 88 was buried Saturday — but not before a stop at Burger King on the way to the cemetery for a Whopper Jr.
The York Daily Record reported that David S. Kime Jr. of West York loved those burgers — along with other fast food — so his family and friends followed the hearse through the drive-through window at the Manchester Burger King. The manager said 40 Whopper Jr. burgers were prepared, including one for Kime, who died Jan. 20.
“He always lived by his own rules,” Linda Phiel, one of Kime’s three daughters, told the Daily Record. “His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr.”
Just think, without all that fast food, he might have lived to see 89.
