You know all that dead weight your Facebook account drags around in the form of extraneous work acquaintances, one-night stands and middle-aged family members who only recently discovered the Internet? Thanks to Burger King, you now have quite the compelling excuse to finally cull them from the herd.
Enter the fast-food chain's "Whopper Sacrifice" Facebook application, which modestly boasts, "Friendship is strong, but the Whopper is stronger." Here's the deal: Download the app and defriend 10 of your virtual pals, and the King hooks you up with a Whopper. But as with most good things involving free beef, there's a catch, slick. While Facebook normally lets you discreetly defriend people, Burger King will shout it from the rooftops (read: their Facebook news feed), letting everyone know you valued a burger more than a human being. Leaving no promotional opportunity unturned, a grim-reaper-esque blurb also appears on your profile to track your executions in pursuit of the free lunch.
Next up for the King: A Chick'n Crisp in exchange for posting illicitly Photoshopped photos of Wendy on your MySpace page.
