Just because July 4 has come and gone again doesn’t mean that America’s done giving the rest of the world its fat, sausage-rolled middle finger. In what can only be described as the most patriotic slab of meat ever concocted, Southern Californian burger chain Slater’s 50/50 has created “The ‘Merica Burger.” Take a second to read its ingredients.
— A patty made of 100% ground bacon
— A slice of thick-cut bacon
— A Sunnyside-up egg
— A slice of bacon cheddar cheese
— Their signature “bacon island” dressing
The tightening sensation you feel in your chest is your heart’s recoiling from reading. But f*ck your heart—you can replace it with something mechanical anyways. All hail technology and American ingenuity!
For those interested, the chain will serve its “’Merica Burger” through July.
