Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Infowars.com: “Burger King Removes “Ham” From “Hamburger” to Avoid Offending Muslims”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Burger King in South Africa is dropping the word “ham” from “hamburger” to avoid offending Muslims.

The “Double Spicy Hamburger” will now become just a “Double Spicy Burger,” while the “Triple Hamburger with Cheese” becomes the “Triple Burger with Cheese,” and a “Hamburger King Jr” on the children’s menu will now be just a “Kids Burger.”

The change is being made despite the fact that the “ham” in hamburger has nothing to do with pork and relates to the German city of Hamburg, where the patties were first made.
