Crowdfunding For Tacos And The Burger King Sauna [THE KATCHUP]

Half of our office is conducting research on the other side of the world right now while the other half stays behind to keep the gears at the office grinding, but we still come together to bring you the most exciting, odd, heartwarming and cringeworthy stories on this week’s episode of The Katchup!

A gay pastor wrote a homophobic slur on his own cake from Whole Foods so that he could sue them. Why? To win a lifetime supply of Whole Foods cakes? What’s the endgame? One woman asked the world to pay for her to get some tacos. You might be surprised to see how the world responded.

China has made eating bananas erotically illegal. Who do you think you are, North Korea? The good people of Finland take their saunas so seriously that they put one in a Burger King. Just right there, right in the middle of it. Hey, some people like to soak with their Whoppers, who am I to judge? Finally, our boys out exploring the foods of the world created an ENORMOUS burger at the Guy Fieiri spot on their Carnival Cruise ship. Was it good? You’re about to find out.

This is…THE KATCHUP!

This Lavish Burger King Comes Equipped With A Fully Functioning Sauna

You might be surprised to learn that the word “sauna” is actually a Finnish word. To everyone else, it’s just the word used to describe an enclosed steam room. To the Finnish, it is much, much more than just  a steam room. It may sound a bit cliche, but honestly, it’s just their way of life.

This way of life has become so ingrained into their society that they’ll build a sauna wherever there is room for one. One Burger King location in Helsinki did the unthinkable (to anyone that isn’t Finnish) and placed a fully functioning sauna in their restaurant. Now you can enjoy a whopper and bask in the pore-opening tranquility of a peaceful sauna all at the same time. Furthermore, the super sweet Burger King towels are also up for grabs to customers that use the sauna.

According to their website, the sauna has enough space for 15 people to sit comfortably. They even go as far as saying that the sauna is “perfect for a group of friends for social gatherings or work, a venue for the birthday party, or even the organization of the show studio.” I’m not sure what kind of work ethic they have over in Finland, but I can assure you that I would pass the f*ck out in there if I was asked to pay attention to a quarterly earnings meeting while having my pores pried open but some hot, steamy goodness. I also feel like a birthday party held in a sauna is a bit haphazard, especially since I’m an adult and adult parties are lame without the guest of honor: booze. But combining heat and alcohol? Now that’s a little too bold for my well-circulated blood.

Unsurprisingly, this Burger King has the prestigious and rabidly (not really) sought after honor of being the first ever fast food restaurant to feature a sauna. For around $90 an hour, you can soak in hot steam while chowing down on some Whoppers with your squad while you’re all naked. Sounds like a Thursday to me, count me in.
