Burger King versus Cameras!

No, not camels. Cameras. Didn’t you hear? Photography is the new terrorism! And here to save us from it is Burger King!

No Photography On The Premises!

(Photo taken at the Burger King in Gunbarrel, on Spine Road. I changed my mind about eating there.)

What exactly happen to make these signs go up? Did they buy the line about terrorism–and they thought that their fast-food restaurant was a prime target? Were they afraid that someone would plagiarize their menu? Did a photoblogger catch a worker in the act of doing something unspeakable to those flame-broiled patties?

In any case, I guess if you were thinking of holding your five-year-old’s birthday party at Burger King (do parents still do that?), maybe you’d better think twice. That’s all I’m saying.

    Parents still do that…but McDonald’s better for it.

    This is so stupid…and exactly why I just bought a digital video camera.

    […] would have started snapping photos if I’d had my cell phone on me, but I didn’t. Denver Metblogs does have a photo of the new window stickers, so feel free to check it […]

    Seriously, who cares? As a business they have a right to deny service. Plus, this isn’t a new thing. Grocery stores and Malls have had this rule for YEARS, way before 9/11. They basically don’t want someone coming in and stealing marketing ideas. Fast food chains pay a lot of money to a lot of people to figure out the best method for laying out their stores, product placement, etc, etc. I can see a lot of reasons why they would ask people not to take pictures in side their store.

    If you don’t like it, don’t go *shrug*
