Cheeseburger Cheeseburger - But Not On An Omelet

Who doesn't like cheeseburgers?

They're everywhere.

My favorite might be the Sonic Drive In Double Cheeseburger because of how the bread melts into the cheese and the cheese melts into the burger creating a new element on the scale called Double Cheese Burgerium. 

Saturday Night Live had a great Cheeseburger skit with John Belushi based on a real Chicago restaurant. There's a Florida-based restaurant chain called Cheeburger Cheeburger and I wonder if they might have based their name on the skit.

I even like Cheeseburger Pizza. Our local Vinny's Pizza has a remarkable Cheeseburger Pizza.

My favorite appetizer of all time were the Cheeseburger Egg Rolls at Applebees that in a stunning moment of mediocrity took off the menu.


This morning I went to Ihop. I don't usually go, but my wife has a fondness for them. Decades ago she worked the night shift Fridays and Saturdays at one and made enough money to get her out of debt. So this morning, I took her out to breakfast and she said, "Let's go to Ihop."

Sure, why not.

I admit, when I saw the Cheeseburger Omelet on the menu I knew it was sketchy. I was okay with the
pickles. I love pickles on pretty much everything. But the lines of ketchup and mustard had me concerned. As they should have. I think having mustard on eggs is akin to crossing the streams of the proton cannons in Ghostbusters.

What did Egon say?

"Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light." 

Yes. That's bad.
Super bad.

Like Cheeseburger Omelet Bad!

Not a fan.
