So I think this may only make sense to users from the States,

but is anyone else getting sick of all these freaking commercials with midget farmers/cowboys to promote Burger King and Jack in the Box's mini burgers?

It really pisses me off.

Firstly, because I've never laughed at short people.
I don't find them funny at all and don't see why anyone would.

And secondly, I think it's really ****ing insulting to midgets as a whole (that means two of them combined) and as a community.

What do you think Pit?

I think it's good.
I mean, are there other kinds of work for midgets?
You won't see them as a bodyguard, that's for sure.
Oh, you wouldn't want an angel watching over
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch

They're their own punchlines. No amount of whining by them will ever negate this fact. They suck; their only careers are in humor based jobs. Tough luck, buttercups.

Actually they would have more advantage than a normal person if they were armed (as in weapons)

The thing is,
it doesn't work.

I feel no compulsion to eat anything handled by midgets.

of course but you do think about burger king when you think of the commercial and when you do that, you prove their sucess at a good commercial, they make you think about it and then maybe sometime you'll go umm I really want some burger king right now

Eh. I think that if they take the role on the commercial, then they obviously don't care. Not as a whole, but really it's just like racial stereotyping or any other bull**** you see that a comedian would do for a laugh.
Quote by JMack
Are you asking if midgets can draw people that are themselves smaller than the average person, or if midget drawings in general are smaller?

You whine about them being insulted yet you call them midgets. Nice work.

TS doesn't like midgets.

Midgets(or little people if you are trying to be PC) are cool, and anything advertised as a "mini" version of something is bound to have something about midgets in the commercials.

That Mini Sirloin burgers commercial is hilarious.

I still wouldn't eat them though, cause they are basically "sliders" and if you are gonna eat a burger don't half ass it, be a fatty damn it!!!!

What about security guards?

I think it's ironic that you are concerned about not insulting them, yet address them as midgets, which they hate.

Well, considering the fact that A MIDGET was in the damn commercial, he obviously chose to be in the damn thing. It would be insulting if it was a full-sized person trying to imitate a midget.
#22
I can see how it would be annoying should such midget commercials pop up all over the place. In this commercial, it actually works. Probably sells too.

Besides, if we would have it your way, a full-sized man playing Mini-Me? No thanks

No one's forcing little people to be in the commercials.

But I do totally get where you're coming from.

I love how sarcasm is impossible to detect through the internet.

My big complaint (LULZ) is that Burger King is associating midgets with their food.

Since when are midgets 'funny'?

The commercials don't make me laugh and I can't see any humour in them.

Well the commercial obviously worked because here you are advertising their products for them.


I ****ing love Burger King and Jack in the Box,
but will never eat their mini burgers and **** simply because of these commercials.

The midgets agreed to be in the commercial.
