a whopper of a deal!


a whopper of a deal

I've seen this in various contexts. It is a wordplay on Burger King, like "a whopper of a deal for Burger Kİng". I understand that, but what is the exact meaning? Burger King has made a great deal?

    A whopper of a deal is a very large deal or an unusually favorable one. The expression has been in use well before there ever was a Burger King. If, however, you found it used to describe a big deal made by the Burger King company, then it's a good play on words by the writer in view of BK's famous "whopper" sandwich.
