The Prodigal Son – Burger King Remix…

a Remix of the Parable found in Luke 15:11-32

Alright, buckle up for a fast-food spin on the classic “Parable of the Prodigal Son” from the gospel of Luke, but this time let’s call it “The Prodigal Burger Flipper.”

Once upon a modern day, there was a dude who owned the most epic Burger King franchise in town. This guy had two sons who helped him run the whopper of an empire. The younger son, let’s call him Eddie, was a bit of a restless spirit. One day, Eddie got this wild idea. He marched up to his dad and said, “Dad, I’m kinda done flipping burgers under your rule. Can I get my share of the inheritance and try out life on my terms? Maybe open my own food joint or something.”

Surprisingly, his dad agreed and handed over the cash. Eddie was psyched and took off to the big city where he lived the high life – think fancy fast food, endless milkshakes, and late-night taco trucks. Yep, Eddie was living the dream, until his wallet hit an all-time low and the city hit an economic slump.

Now broke and hungry, Eddie got a job at a rundown pizza joint, the only place that would hire a guy smelling faintly of fries and lost dreams. Eddie was down to scraping cheese off pizza boxes just to eat. That’s when it hit him: back at home, even the part-time janitor at Burger King had a better deal than this.

Swallowing his pride, Eddie decided to head home. He rehearsed his apology all the way, expecting a lecture and hoping at least for a job mopping floors. But as he turned onto his street, there was his dad, sprinting towards him like he’d just won the Burger King crown. Before Eddie could get a word out, his dad enveloped him in a bear hug and started shouting orders for a feast. “Fire up the grill! My son’s back! Get those patties sizzling! It’s party time!”

Meanwhile, the older brother, let’s call him Ted, was coming back from a hard day’s work, dreaming of a quiet night with his stack of burgers. But as he neared home, there were lights and music blasting, and he smelled the unmistakable scent of fresh Whoppers. Confused and slightly annoyed, he asked one of the crew what was up.

When he heard the reason for the celebration, Ted was not pleased. He’d stayed loyal to the Burger King crown, never even sneaking extra fries. Yet, here was his dad, throwing a party for Eddie, the royal screw-up. Ted’s dad came out and tried to reason with him, “Teddy, my boy, you’re always with me, and everything I have is yours – unlimited fries, dude. But we had to celebrate, because your brother was lost and now he’s found. Let’s not hold the grudges; let’s hold the burgers!”

So, in the end, amidst a feast of burgers and fries, the family reunited, learning a bit about forgiveness and the value of second chances – served up hot and fresh, just like those Whoppers.

the Original Parable found in Luke 15:11-32 (KJV)

And he said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing. And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound. And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf. And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
