Bridget and I just had a great time sending up some people in flames for a free Whopper. It's a new promotion by the folks over at Burger King who have created a Facebook Application aptly titled the "Whopper Sacrifice." When you defriend 10 people, you'll get a coupon for a free Whopper.
Ok, fair and obvious warning for the world of Netiquette: This clearly is not the best thing to do to coworkers, because the people you defriend are told what you've done. As soon as Bridget watched my profile picture burn up in flames, with the tagline: "You liked Niala. You love the Whopper", I got a notification that said basically the same thing.
But it's pretty funny. Bridget reports that she felt extreme satisfaction watching some people go up in flames. (About half of the people she burned are really close friends, and did it as a joke. The other half... well... sayonara!) We both secretly wish we could do this to more people, but for different reasons: I wish I could get rid of people I friended too hastily, but know they will take offense if I send them up in flames. Bridget just wants more free Whoppers. (The application says it is limited to one coupon per profile.)
