The feds are taking the Burger King radio pirate very seriously. Some nasty “evildoer” discovered the wireless frequency that a Troy, Mich., Burger King franchise uses to talk to drive-through customers. He’s been telling patrons in most unappetizing language that they’re “too fat to eat Whoppers,” among other insults.
Now the Federal Communications Commission has taken over the case. The FCC might bring in its signal detection trucks, which are normally used to track down illicit radio stations and terrorists. Federal law provides for stiff fines and jail time for those convicted of “willful or malicious” interference with radio communications, the newspaper said.
Readers wishing to experience the fast-food obscenities firsthand may not be able to have it their way. The drive-through prankster hasn’t been heard from since Thursday.
