Hilarious jokes-Burger King's left handed whopper

Burger King played a gimmick in the late 90s when it advertized in the leading dailies about a new item on their menu - it was a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 10% of the American population that is left-handed. According to the ad, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper - like mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, pickles, patty, etc. - but all the seasoning were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers.

The next day Burger King issued a follow-up release disclosing that the Left-Handed Whopper was actually a hoax, but thousands of customers had turned up at the Burger King joints to request the new junk food. Not just that, there were many others who requested their own 'right handed' version.
