Dear Wendy's, Feel My Wrath

Why the crap did you have to mess with the Big Bacon Classic with Cheese? Listen, the last 15+ times I've patronized your establishment I've been good. I've come to love your salads and healthy sides. But once in a while, dammit, I want 29g of fat (+cheese), 1460mg of sodium, and 570 calories between an enriched white bread bun. This time, my unborn baby wanted some fat too, and what my kid wants my kid gets.
Imagine my shock when I pulled up to the drive-thru to discover that the Big Bacon Classic has been replaced with The Baconator. First, the The Baconator is a dumbass name. Second, you actually removed the moderately healthy lettuce, tomato, and onion, and replaced them with more bacon and an extra beef patty! Last but not least, it tastes like butt. I even had you add the veggies back on and I removed the second patty before I ate it.
Luckily my husband was driving or you can bet your red-headed behind that I would have turned the car around and demanded an explanation. Instead you should be made aware that I am the 283rd signer of the online "Save the Big Bacon Classic" petition. Oh yeah, that's right, I'm hitting the streets. Grassroots effort. Be afraid.

You are so right about this! I had the exact same reaction one day when I was craving a Big Bacon Classic. Damn you Wendy's!!
