Southern California burger chain Slater’s 50/50 has spent the past couple years making a name for itself through its flagship burger patty that blends 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon into a local hero of a menu item.
In celebration of one the most patriotic months of the year, the 3-location chain is debuting The ‘merica burger — a patty made of 100% ground bacon topped with a slice of thick cut bacon, a sunny side up egg, a new “bacon island” dressing and a heavy slice of bacon cheddar cheese. Bacon on bacon on bacon — apparently the only way to top their 50/50 ground beef bacon blend patty is to go 100% bacon.

“Hambuster” is a wickedly funny six-minute 3D stereoscopic short film, co-directed by five students from Supinfocom Arles. Now, anyone who spends time eating their way around restaurant-obsessed America knows that when it comes to food, we are now living in a brave new burger world. America is awash in hamburger options, from business-lunch burgers, to chic nightclub sliders, to great hamburger creations to eat while you sit on a bench in the park, or even better, delicious burgers delivered piping-hot right to your seat while you watch a ballgame.
Maybe today you just might like having yourself a good juicy hamburger for lunch, while sitting in a peacefully quiet place in the neighborhood park. But what if your lunch doesn’t like that idea at all, goes absolutely crazy-mad and decides to attack you? Out in the street everyone can hear your loud and bloody screams, but honestly who cares?
Includes a number of colorful pictures, as well as the darkly humorous animated short film.

It hit the web a while back how McDonald's burgers where not decomposing fast enough, causing much horror online. Though a writer on Boing Boing (and not a blog about burger love) points out there is a good reason why they didn't mold over fast enough.
"just what happens to meat products and bread when you leave them out in the open air. Think about the last hunk of baguette you didn't finish. Same thing. Basically, the food dries out before it has a chance to rot."-Boing Boing

Fans of White Castle's oniony hamburgers have a new way to indulge without any calorie guilt: a scented candle infused with the burgers' aroma.
The Columbus, Ohio-based fast-food chain this week introduced candles that smell like its Slider burgers in a promotion with Autism Speaks. Proceeds from the sale of the $10 candles will benefit the New York-based charity.
The candles resemble a packaged White Castle burger and are being sold at the company's restaurants and on its website. The wax is encased in a ceramic holder that looks like a Slider's cardboard sleeve.Fans of White Castle's oniony hamburgers have a new way to indulge without any... more
To launch Windows 7 in Japan, Microsoft has teamed with Burger King to start selling a Whopper with 7 patties.
Stories about the 1.7 pound, 2,120 calorie burger have been circulating the net. People have speculated about the majesty of this meaty skyscraper. Then finally, video footage was released showing the effort that goes into eating this beast.
Seven Whopper Patties for Windows 7
If you are a serpentine creature, that can unhinge its jaw, you can easily eat this gigantic sandwich. If you are human it's not so easy. (I hope you are human, because the thought of a literate serpentine creature is terrifying.)

Lucky gringos were in Japan to try out the burger themselves.

Burger King isn't a tyrannical monarch. It's not like he holds a monopoly on 7-pattied burgers. You can get them anywhere. This fella ate seven burgers at Wendy's.

Sometimes people decide to call things FAILs, when they aren’t really that FAIL. I try to find the glimmer of goodness in everything, so this is another edition of some FAILs that I don’t think are really FAILs.
I'm not very familiar with Sailor Moon, but how could this costume be a FAIL, if I recognized that he was dressed as Sailor Moon? The costume clearly is effective, so it is a WIN.
Yeah right. How could having fun with the WHOLE family possibly be a FAIL?
This person didn't FAIL at locking their wi-fi signal, they WIN at figuring out how to name their network. Nobody can use my signal without a password, but it's still called LINKSYS, and creativity is what counts in this world.
Yeah I get it, they spelled "your" AND "for" wrong, but they spelled 1/5th of the words correctly!
The cat always asks if he can haz cheeseburger. What does he do when he finally gets it? He takes a bite, and then goes back to eating cat food. C'mon bro, that's a waste of $1.25. FAIL.
I'm not a building inspector, so I'm not concerned that those thermoses over the counter don't adhere to municipal standards. Big whoop maybe, but FAIL definitely not.
The wrath of Venom is something that Spider Man might fear, but why should we? Perhaps this is only a FAIL because this person hasn't made the switch from VHS to DVD. Consider that DVD itself is a dead format though, maybe he streams video through NetFlix. Duh.
I know what you're thinking. This is a FAIL, because the architect is invoking ideas from Ionic temple design, while implementing columns from the Corinthian period. Well first off, we aren't all Greek architectural scholars, bro. And secondly, it's not totally inconceivable that early Corinthian architecture might use Ionic structure, as that was the previously dominant style.

Paul Wall — I Witnessed a Burger Brawl!

Rapper Paul Wall got a few more buns than he bargained for at a Whataburger in Texas recently when some dumbass was de-pantsed in a late-night brawl over a cheeseburger.

Raj Patel bravely took on Stephen Colbert earlier this week to promote his new book, The Value of Nothing. I'm a huge fan of Patel's last book, Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World's Food System.
Patel describes the premise for his new book as coming from an Oscar Wilde quote: "Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing." I look forward to getting Patel's newest book in my paws for a read -- so far, he's made some interesting points, although it's always hard to get to the heart of things sitting across the table from Colbert.
Still Patel made a valiant effort.
Prices in the free markets, Patel explained "work to hide a great deal, we need different ways of valuing the world other than relying on the free market."
Patel uses an example of a hamburger, saying that if you figure in the social and environmental costs we should be paying 200 bucks for a burger, which would of course mean we'd need to rethink the way we are eating. Sounds like a plan!
"We need to pay the full cost for what it is we consume, other wise we are dumping our environmental costs on," oh shucks, that's when Colbert cuts him off.
Colbert for his part had some great lines. Here's one:
"Cheap prices is what America was built on .. aren't you hurting the world's poor by not employing them at near-starvation wages?"
Ever the expert on developing countries, Patel deftly responds and the conversation becomes an issue of democracy. Patel contends that democracy as it was first done in Greece was based on electing a bunch of people at random to run the government each year. And Colbert replies with the hit line of the show:
"We tried picking a leader at random, it's called Sarah Palin." Touche.
I think Raj Patel has become one of the great, sane voices when it comes to food policy. I'm looking forward to what he has to say in this newest work.Raj Patel bravely took on Stephen Colbert earlier this week to promote his new book,... more
