The engagement ring Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian may not be the only whopper at their wedding this year, if Burger King has its way.

The fast-food burger slingers have made a public offer to prepare noshes for the couple's nuptials, following an online rumor that West had purchased 10 Burger King franchises for his betrothed, according to the NME.

"Burger King Corp. is familiar with the recent news stories regarding Kanye West and Kim Kardashian," a burger rep wrote in a statement. "We are unaware of any purchase of Burger King restaurants made by either Mr. West or Ms. Kardashian, but we're available to cater the wedding!" The exclamation point is theirs.

West proposed to Kardashian last October with an elaborate ballpark proposal, and within a few weeks, he flaunted his love by putting his fiancée topless on a motorcycle for his "Bound 2" video. Seth Rogen and James Franco filmed an equally snuggly spoof of the clip, which Kardashian reported West loved. ("He laughed so hard at this," she tweeted.)

But despite the couple's apparent sense of humor – which could bode well for Burger King – a poll of the American public rated West and Kardashian America's least desirable neighbors, besting the cast of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo for the dishonor.

In other West news, the rapper was recently sentenced to two years of probation after quarrelling with a paparazzo in 2013. TMZ reported that West appeared at the Hollywood LAPD police station Thursday afternoon to get fingerprinted and have his mug shot taken. He must serve 250 hours of community service and 30 days of anger management.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
