Burger King's left-handed Whopper

It's April Fool's Day 2008.

So what was happening 10 years ago today?

Well, Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of the "Left-Handed Whopper."

As a lefty, I was thrilled. Thrilled to be part of what was obviously a joke.

But on April 2, Burger King issued a release confirming the hoax because thousands of customers had requested the burger. Apparently, some people also requested their own right-handed version.
