The Jonas Brothers Will Have It Their Way

Sep 26th, 2008 // 9 Comments

Yeah, I don’t know either, although I am kind of sad that no one thought to make the too-obvious-to-me connection between the Jonas Brothers’ Maroon 2.6-like single “Burnin’ Up” and Burger King’s penchant for flame-broiling their burgers. [YouTube]

    It’s at least a Maroon 3.7, GOD, Maura. But I prefer Joe to Adam Levine so.

    As a fellow type one diabetic, I can say without hesitation that there is NOT ONE FUCKING THING on Burger King’s menu that Nick Jonas should be eating, ever.

  3. Maura Johnston

    @Elijah-M: Oh, you know, that’s a good point! I didn’t even think of that. WTF, Jonas Brothers brand managers?

    I’ve been a die-hard vegetarian since I was 13 years old. That’s 21 years. That said, I would personally slaughter a cow and club a baby seal for the chance to wear myself out on Joe Jonas.

    @Maura Johnston: The other two need to eat too… and if I may get catty for a second, it doesn’t look like Kevin’s all that interested in dietary restrictions. He’s all round when the other two are cut.

    @Nunya B: Adam Levine, who? Does not exist in my world of Jonas.

    Best part is when Joe was sleepy in his bunk.

    @Nunya B: @NeverEnough: Did you watch Dancing With the Stars?!!! ZoMg.

    @Elijah-M: He kind of seems to eat a lot of junk, though…testimony to the effectiveness of the OmniPod? (Yeah I have no idea what I’m talking about, though my Bro-in-law is Type I.)

  8. NeverEnough

    @ObtuseIntolerant: Yes, ma’am. His little dance was adorable.

    @ObtuseIntolerant sees lots of work to do.: I use an OmniPod as well; and yes, it is incredibly effective. So effective, in fact, that I gained about 15 pounds during the first year that I was using it. It stabilizes your blood sugar so well, that you stop burning fat during those extended periods of high blood sugar. My guess is that if he does in fact eat a lot of junk, he will gain a lot of weight unless he either a) keep his blood sugar high, so his body burns the excess fat, or b) exercise quite a bit.

    The real problem with Burger King is that almost every single item on the menu contains large amounts of high fructose corn syrup; so regardless of how their food effects his weight and blood sugar, it’s doing a lot of invisible damage that’s going to bite him in the ass 20 years from now.
