A while ago I had the brilliant idea of making food scented candles. Who wouldn’t want their house smelling like bacon, lasagna, or sauteed onions and garlic at all times? Sure, it might lead to obesity and questions about your character, but this was still an incredible idea on my part. Unfortunately, I never got around to creating a prototype and researching a patent.
Well, it looks I was too late. White Castle has already gone and created a candle(update: apparently these sold out within 24 hours and are no longer available. the link has been removed from the website) with “steam-grilled-on-a-bed-of-onions scent of America’s first fast-food hamburger”. Net proceeds will benefit the Autism Speaks foundation.
Not only has White Castle completely stolen my idea, but they’ve made it beneficial for a chartable organization. The only person that was going to benefit from my creation was me. Damn you, White Castle. Damn you.
