WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE ON THAT

I consider myself to be a Burger Connoisseur...or at least have turned into one since leaving the big city life to live in tiny town USA and eating burgers from the Small Town Saloon located in Elizabeth IL. Living in a metropolis such as Chicago and its suburbs all my life, I have been fed burgers from mostly fast food establishments. Of course, there are the few and far between businesses that offer a real burger…so I cannot say all are burger creator imposters. Today, I stopped at one place I used to go to in Oak Park IL. I ordered a 1/3 pound burger considering that is the largest they have…and I was hungry. “What would you like on that?”, I was asked by the counter help. I chose to do a little mustard and ketchup. I also said that I would like it cooked Medium Well and he just looked at me puzzled. What I was presented with was what I will call a “City Burger”. It is a flat 1/4″to 3/8″ round disk with smooth edges. The top and bottom are smooth. The bun was a sesame seed type that flapped like a flag in the wind. The mustard and ketchup was actually all I tasted.

It is free of all sorts of pesticides and chemicals. I can get close and personal...
FRUSTRATED MR. MET GIVES FAN THE FINGER, EMPLOYEE FIRED

FRUSTRATED MR. MET GIVES FAN THE FINGER, EMPLOYEE FIRED

by Fox News Mr. Met flips off fans, employee fired NEW YORK –  The New York Mets organization fired an employee who wore the Mr. Met costume after the mascot was captured on video giving a fan the “middle” finger during Wednesday night’s baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Mr. Met, known for an oversized head with baseball seams, is among the sport’s most recognized mascots. Technically, he has only four digits on each hand — three fingers and a thumb. A Mets official told the Associated Press that more than one person wears the costume each season but the employee who wore it on Wednesday night will not do so again. A person tweeted a short video of Mr. Met walking into a tunnel at Citi Field, the Mets ballpark, and flashing an vulgar gesture to a fan, according to MLB.

LARGEST BASS CAUGHT IN TEXAS LAKE USING MCDONALD’S CHICKEN MCNUGGET

by Fox News Matthew McNellis and his girlfriend caught the massive bass last month by using a chicken McNugget as bait. (Matthew McNellis) A couple got a “Mc-nificent” catch when they reeled in a record-breaking bass last month at a Texas lake by using a McDonald’s chicken McNugget as their bait. Matthew McNellis and his girlfriend went fishing in May at Lake Bardwell in Ennis and had no luck catching anything, McNellis told KDAF. McNellis’ girlfriend then suggested using a chicken nugget they bought from McDonald’s as bait. To their surprise, they reeled in a 2-and-a-half-foot long bass that weighed more than 10 pounds. RELATED: COMING-SOON-OFF-GRID-SURVIVAL-SCHOOL The Highview Marina declared it as the biggest fish caught at the lake, posting a photo of it on Facebook. The bass won’t be turning into a Filet-O-Fish sandwich anytime soon. The couple tossed the bass back in the water at the end.
