3. It was, perhaps, a simpler time. A time when people still included depictions of Wall Street signs in their happy murals of clouds and Filet O’Fish.

4. Patrons could also watch television. Which was very important because it was the Bush/Gore election debacle.

5. As many as nine of them simultaneously. Because this was a time when we were living THE FUTURE.

6. This glorious Burger King — it was a peaceful place. A place where no one spilled beverages, nor searched for porn, nor put their greasy fingers on public keyboards. Remember this time, dear children. Keep it close to your hearts.
