Cruelty-Free Burger King

I’ve never had a BK burger. Light years ago, I enjoyed some of their scrumptious chicken sandwiches. We would get them in the then new drive-thru on route 27 [the route back to NYC from the south fork of Long Island] on a Sunday night. A soft bun, spicy breading, rich mayo, and cool lettuce-it was a winning combo for my pre-teen taste buds.

No matter if I haven't tasted the goods, I’m gladdened that they’ve heard the PETA-cry [or is it the vegan-dollar-cry?] and are making some cruelty-free adjustments to their "cuisine".

But I wonder: is this merely a concession, just words? Can organic fast food be far behind? Isn't that kind of a ridiculous concept?
