Abomination

When I was watching football last weekend, I saw an advertisement for this hideous thing. I actually yelled out in horror when it came on screen. "Fried egg, crisp bacon, hash brown nuggets, cheese, ketchup and a charbroiled all-beef patty on a sesame-seed bun." I’ve wondered when they would manage to make a sandwich that would incorporate both a cow and a chicken. Every major meat group is represented. It almost seems like a joke, or a test to see just how much Americans will consume. It’s the most sloppily American thing I have ever seen.

Speaking of meat, the Jets won a very cool game and the Mets got Carlos Beltran. I am a happy transplanted NY sports fan. I am a red-blooded American male, but there should be protests against the Breakfast Burger.

And I thought a sandwich made of syrup-infused pancakes was bad. Sheesh.

By the way, what is with California's strange fascination with all things burger? I mean, I like a good burger as much as the next guy. But it's all weird and cultish out there. My vacation in California in October was my first exposure to In-n-Out, which is basically the state religion. I agree it was good, but c'mon. And there are these gourmet burger places -- we went to one called Father's Office in Santa Monica. Good, but again: c'mon.

And now this objet d'meat.

I hadn’t considered that this wasn’t national. It may be coming to a Hardee’s near you. I’ve heard people debate In-n-Out versus Fatburger. I mean a real debate, like it mattered. People used to put In-n-Out Burger bumper stickers on their cars and remove letters so it said "In-n-Out Urge." There was once an ad campaign where you’d win a prize if you had an In-n-Out bumper sticker on your car. Except a little gremlin would also go around and remove bumper stickers as well. I think this was done so they could legally remove In-n-Out Urge bumper stickers from people’s cars.

It's too bad, with all that other meat going on, they could've worked lamb, fish, and shrimp in there somehow. I'm so disappointed. :)

If they're going to allow the sale of such heart-stoppers, they should also legalize suicide!
