Burger King Employee Stands In Lettuce, Gets Busted By 4chan

This is why you don't mess with people's food or the internet.

So here's what happened: an anonymous user posted an image on 4chan Monday night of himself standing in two tubs of lettuce along with the caption "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King."

Unfortunately for him, he failed to strip out the GPS tags before uploading the picture, and the anons (the nameless, faceless people who spend time on 4chan) pretty much immediately tracked down his location to Mayfield Heights, Ohio.

Within 20 minutes they had contacted both local news outlets as well as the manager of the Burger King where the photo was taken, who was understandably upset. Reports say the employee has been identified and fired. The Cuyahoga County Board of Health also payed a visit to the franchise.
