Burger Pun in Bad Taste Seals the Deal Against Kamouraska Restaurant Owner

QUEBEC – A restaurant owner in Kamouraska has reportedly received death threats over a burger on his menu. Called the “Phoque Bardot Burger”, the seal-meat burger’s name is a pun on the obvious resemblance of the word “phoque” – French for “seal” – and a phonetic proximity to the common vulgar term “fuck”. The Phoque Bardot burger, which refers to the French actress and anti-seal-hunting activist Brigitte Bardot, has shocked many animal advocates.

The hotel which hosts the restaurant is even the subject of a hate campaign on the internet. The several other unusual meats on the menu do not generate as strong reactions.

The owner of East Side bistro leader Kim side, contacted the police to take no chances. However, the owners have decided not to remove the seal meat burger from the menu. It is apparently served with foie gras.
