BK

I just saw the new Burger King commercial and they called a chicken nugget their "new handheld BK snacker"

BK Snacker.

BK.

You know who coined that abbreviation?

Dane Cook.  Way back, talking about "the BK Lounge..."

And that joke became so culturally impregnated that Burger King is actually using the familiar term in their commercials.

Like... Whoa...

  9. If Dane Cook was ever original, it would only be because he talks about the same joke for twenty minutes each in his act.
