MIAMI—Fast-food chain Burger King held a press conference Tuesday to unveil the newest thing on its menu for parents to halfheartedly throw in front of their kids' faces after yet an-other hellish day at the office. "Whether they're too exhausted to prepare the simplest meal or just want something for their kids to chew on quietly in the backseat so they can enjoy the first 10 minutes of peace and quiet they've had all day, parents will love this new thing," said senior vice president Alex Macedo, adding that the thing will also come in barbecue flavor. "It's hot, basic sustenance in a wrapper, and it's perfect for kids whose parents are glumly sifting through bills or wearily going over paperwork for tomorrow's 9 a.m. meeting." Macedo added that the new item will also come with a stupid little toy thing that should keep kids occupied for at least another 15 minutes.
