Hey fatso, turn your neck column this way and set your salivate levels to “flash flood.” Hot off the heels of the The Icarus Burger comes a bizarre new sandwich that asks the question, “Are you a responsible adult who can be trusted to feed him or herself?” and answers with the sound of a body collapsing on the floor.
New York City has proven that we can create toxic products both culinary and financial with today’s announcement from Shake Shack that they will now offer a peanut butter and bacon burger [via The Awl].
The bacon is generously portioned, and the peanut butter is warm and oozy; together they dominate the experience. So while delicious, the beef is barely noticeable. In fact, it might be even better without the burger as just a straight bacon and peanut butter sandwich, or if the beef were replaced with sliced bananas. [emphasis in original.]
That’s right, assholes! This city made a hamburger that a website called “A Hamburger Today” couldn’t handle! “Replace the beef with bananas,” they said. Ha!
Good luck being a serious world power, China.
