Paging Mr. Famine. Please join your party at the stables

Please, in the name of all that is holy, tell me that my eyes deceive me. Or that this is some kind of joke. Or that I am the subject of a secret psychological test, wherein I am faced with brain-melting situations while secret electrodes monitor my brain activity. But, for the love of God, please tell me that this is not reality (via HuffPo):

No. I cannot live in this world. They're replaced the bun with meat?!???!?

Has the world gone mad? Is there a market for this? Has American fast food finally created a product that makes people back away slowly and re-examine their lives? Or will this sell like hotcakes? (Coming soon -- chicken-meat hotcakes.) Will this start a trend? Will Taco Bell start replacing its taco shells with beef?

I need to go lie down and take an Advil.

Update: Ta-Nehisi had the exact same thought I had when I first read about this.


  1. Do yourself a favor and never look at the blog "this is why you're fat". replacing the bun with chicken is like a health parade compared to, say, replacing the bun with donuts or grilled-cheese sandwiches.

    personally I'm working on the recursive burger, where each bun is replaced with a smaller recursive burger.

  2. And here I've always had a soft spot for the batter-coated, deep-fried Snickers (tm) bar. Along with deep-fried pizza. No, really, Scotland is the place to find this.

    I like the recursive burger, too. Well, as long as it converges.

  3. I'm trying to figure out the math so I can get a finite recursive burger but I've forgotten how to do this stuff
