    I was just wondering if anyone has seen the poor rooster on the Burger King commercial? His comb is so scabby it looks MISERABLE. You'd think they would want to present anything they have to do with in the healthiest light but not so in this case. There is more than one of their rooster commercials, this is the one where he is looking through a little black book type list on a mobile phone at pics of female chickens he wants to "date". Sure upsets me every time it comes on. Don't know where to begin to let them or somebody know how objectionable that rooster's condition is so he can get some care.

    That is a sorry excuse for advertising.

    Ya, I saw that. I thought there would be some memes or some sort of outrage. General people just don't notice. I don't think rot looks like that unless it is dead. Rotting taxidermy! I think they are all taxidermy on those BK commercials. Gross rot and food should not be in the same commercial.

    The rooster's comb looks like frost damage.

    Oh ya, frost bite. It doesn't look like any fungus. I wonder if his comb can recover from it.

    Yes they are fine. The scabs fall off and they lose a bit of their comb but they recover fine.
