Hamburger on the brain

I am so starving for a good hamburger.

Turns out that May is National Hamburger Month!

A Hamburger Today is the definitive source for all things burger...

Ever since Fuddrucker's closed here in Nashville, I miss a good burger - (with no gristle)

I did find a great burger at the CheeseCake Factory that runs about $12.00 which was one of the most memorable burgers I have eaten.

I recently dined at the superb J. Alexanders on West End; the Tuna Burger is off the charts - a half pound Fresh Ahi tuna from Hawaii with a ginger-mustard glaze for $14.00.

Speaking of gristle burgers, here's a oldie April Fools prank:

The Left-Handed Whopper
In 1998 Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.), but all the condiments were rotated 180 degrees for the benefit of their left-handed customers. The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."

The Left-Handed Whopper. A whopper of a tale. Thanks for the laugh. Didn't know Burger King had such a good sense of humor.
