Ridiculous! Burger King kicks out 6 month old for not wearing shoes!

Isn't this taking the "no shoes, no shirt, no service" policy a bit too far??

Employees at a Burger King in Missouri told a mother she needed to leave the premises with her 6 month old because the baby was violating the health code by not wearing shoes. Yikes! Charlie barely ever wears shoes. She hates them and takes them off and we lose them. So I let her go barefoot. It's summertime and she's not walking on the ground yet so.... no harm, no foul? Apparently I am correct in this assumption: "In fact, shoelessness is not a health code violation in St. Louis County."

Luckily, corporate Burger King realized the ridiculousness of this and called the customer at her home to apologize.

On a related note, is anyone else creeped out by that new Burger King commercial? The one where the King is lurking in some woman's room while she sleeps, and puts whipped cream in her hand? I mean, what's the message of that commercial?? "Eat burger King and have midnight visits from costumed weirdos"?? I don't get it.

On the plus side they did them the favor of having to eat somewhere else.
