    Couch potatoes, rejoice! Fast-food giant Burger King has announced that it will be making deliveries in select areas as part of a trial program that it may extend to the rest of its 7,500 outlets in a bid to bring in new customers. Hungry folks near 16 Burger King locations in Virginia and Maryland will be able to have it their way from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. starting Jan. 23 for an additional $2 delivery fee. Customers can place an order for a Whopper online or over the phone, but the company says homebodies with the munchies will still have to go to a franchise to get milkshakes, coffee, and breakfast foods.
