Burger King Reveals

Freddy Krueger did wear a chef's hat in one of his many incarnations, and now we might know which kitchen he was cooking in, as Burger King proudly presents this year's Halloween burger: the Nightmare King.

The fast-food chain is offering the "spooky" sandwich October 22 through November 1. The fast-food giant released a burger with chicken, bacon, cheese on top of a green bun and according to Uproxx, a study was done that resulted in consumers of the burger having nightmares.

As announced in the New York Daily News, Burger King actually claims to have conducted a study with a company called Florida Sleep & Neuro Diagnostic Services, Inc., to see what happened when subjects ate the burger before bed.

The "spooky sandwich" has a quarter pounder of beef, a chicken filet, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and onion.

Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, a specialized somnologist, gleaned from the study that the "incidence of nightmares" increased by about 3.5 times for those who ate the Nightmare King before bed, according to an online statement. "The burger then transformed into the figure of a snake", another subject alleges.

Another participant said aliens started attacking the boat he was on during his bad dream.

Dr. Medina goes on to explain that the combination of proteins and cheese interrupts the rapid eye movement cycles during which most people's dreams happen, thus leading to the spike in bad dreams.

"Participants who expressed a preference for fast foods reported less frequent dream recall, as well as fewer recurring dreams, nightmares, and sexual dreams", the study said. Control groups are an "essential part of the scientific method", Matheus Melo Pithon wrote in Evidence-based Orthodontics.
