All the major fast food chains are dropping their prices again, according to THIS article in the USA Today, because of a slumping economy and because of marketing data showing that today's 20-somethings are going to fast food restaurants far less regularly than did prior generations at that age.
That's sort of interesting. But what really caught my eye was one such deal enumerated in this article, as an example of this price cutting:
"$6.99 meals for two. For less than $7, Burger King is offering two Whoppers, two small fries and two small drinks."
Who's kidding whom, I wondered, about how many couples are coming in to Burger King together and sharing this 'meal for two.'
