Order a Whopper from your couch: Burger King expands delivery

No need to visit a Burger King restaurant in person anymore.

This week's sign the apocalypse is upon us: (And honestly, I don't know how I missed this, but somehow I did.)

It seems just because fast food isn't already convenient enough, you can now get it delivered. I learned today Burger King franchises in Chicago, San Francisco and eventually here in Los Angeles will start delivering Whoppers, et al.

After all, to steal a line from one of our producers here, a microwaved $2 hamburger isn't enough. Now you can get it cold, on your door step.
