Default World's most expensive ($200) Burger King burger

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,368901,00.html

LONDON — It's known as the home of 'The Whopper' and Burger King is
hoping its latest product really lives up to its reputation. The
fast-food giant launched a $200 burger Wednesday — all in the name of
charity.

Setting a new record, the world's most expensive burger is available at
just one restaurant in West London, England, once a week — but it will
eventually be available to order via a hotline.

The fine ingredients of what is called simply 'The Burger' include Wagyu
beef, white truffles, Pata Negra ham slices, Cristal onion straws,
Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt,
organic white wine and shallot infused mayonnaise in an Iranian saffron
and white truffle dusted bun.

Celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson told Sky News Online: "It sounds
delicious. The ingredients are very good and high powered, but why are
Burger King doing it?"

All the proceeds from The Burger sales will go to the Help A London
Child charity, which assists young people experiencing abuse,
homelessness, disability, poverty and illness.

David Kisilevsky, at Burger King, said: "The Burger reflects our ongoing
commitment to producing for a range of different pockets."

The Burger beat the previous world record for the most expensive burger,
held by Daniel Boulud for the DB Double Truffle Burger in New York,
(1994) priced at $130.

By lunchtime on the first day of The Burger's unveiling, eight had been
purchased, said Chef Mark Dowding, the director of new product
development and innovation for the fast food chain.

Dowding said he hoped that more than 100 would be sold by the end of the
day.

You're like a little 16-year old who just discovered newsgroups.
This has already made the rounds of all the newsgroups weeks ago. Get
with it, dumbass.

No need to be rude, Sqwertz. He obviously found it interesting enough
to share with the group. If you found it of little use, then move
along to some other topic instead of hiding behind the bushes and
calling him names. Besides, how was he supposed to know it made the
rounds? Isn't that the point of these groups, to discuss topics even
if they've been discussed before? Get with it.

That reminds me of a story from my misguided youth.

When I was in elementary school (3rd or 4th grade) my cohorts and I would
hide in the bushes at the front of the school during recess and harass and
heckle adults going into the main school entrance. The playground was in
the back of the school and we were verboten to be out front. Obviously,
that's why we were there.

IIRC our hiding place was about 50-75 yards away from the front door.

I saw one particularly obese woman walking in one day and yelled at the top
of my young lungs, "Hey FAT-ASS!"

She turned and looked in the direction of my voice. I looked at my buddy in
horror and said, "Holy shit dude, that's my Grandma!"

After she went into the school I beat a path back to the playground. 2
minutes later I was called into the principal's office.

Turns out she was there to bring me something I needed. I have no idea what
it was as I was so stricken with fear that she knew it was me.


Moral: Hiding behind bushes and calling names isn't always a good tactic.

He's just looking for someone else to fight with now that me and all his
other closest friend's kill-filed him.

Apparently you overlooked the previous posts from this idiot, and the
excessive cross-posting.
