One of the most vile and unnatural states in a human life is that of hunger. Hunger is the enemy of freedom, happiness, democracy, neighborly values, and all that we hold dear in America.
Solidify your commitment to dedicate your life to fighting hunger with a cheeseburger tattoo.
Ever since the genius of the Earl of Sandwich placed meat and accouterments between two pieces of bread, the hamburger has been alive and well. It’s a classic, good for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner. But it’s not quite complete. It’s missing a slice of that cheese.
The cheeseburger was invented at some point in the 1920s. While several fry cooks claim to have revolutionized the burger, many historians agree that it was Lionel Sternberger in 1926 when, at the ripe age of 16, he “experimentally dropped a slab of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.” A star was born.
Today, you can get all sorts of cheeseburgers: cheeseburgers topped with bacon or mushroom or friend eggs or pickled beets, ones that use lamb or venison or bison or elk for their meat, and iterations that get freaky with sauces and buns. The most expensive cheeseburger currently known to man is sold by the NYC food truck 666 Burger (Hail Satan!). Their top burger sells for $666, comes wrapped in gold leaf, and is topped with caviar, truffles, foie gras, lobster, and aged gruyere cheese steamed with champagne on a hot griddle.
But there’s one thing that unites all of these burgers: they’re filling, and they’re delicious. Better make your next tattoo medium-rare.
