How’s THIS for an April Fools Day joke, kids!
The whiff of a “Whopper “made hundreds of customers hungry for a Burger King special Wednesday — “Flame Grilled” cologne.
Bottles of the fragrance were sold at the fast-food chain’s stores in Japan for 5,000 yen (about $40), including one Whopper burger.
At a downtown Tokyo outlet, 17-year-old student Yuki Ishibashi bought one out of curiosity. He learned late last month about the cologne and “I really wanted to try it,” Ishibashi said. He took a whiff of the spray and described the scent as “spicy.”
Nanako Katabami bought one as an unusual gift, and quoted her friend as saying it smelled like a Burger King store.
Burger King said the cologne sold out at about half of its 90 Japanese outlets by evening.
The promotion, available only in Japan, was timed deliberately for April Fools’ Day.

“It is unimaginable,” says the local bishop. “Heartbreaking,” a cemetery caretaker tells the Times-Tribune. “It’s just a freak thing that happened.”
AND, as an added bit of irony: Woytack’s burial plot will be right in front of the headstone that killed him.
