Some Hamburger Meat Gets Named After Mickey Rourke

Because nothing whets the appetite quite like conjuring up the mental image of Mickey Rourke's face, Burger King has created the Whiplash Whopper in honor of Rourke's character in Iron Man 2. The burger (available for a limited time only!!) purports to "capture the sharp edge of the film's villain" and consists of a patty, cheese, red peppers, and mayo, but all spicy-like. We are extremely optimistic that this will not be the most absurd Iron Man 2 tie-in to emerge in the coming weeks, but are excited by just how high it sets the bar. [IESB]
