Who knew that all this time we’ve been making a mess of our burgers because we’ve been eating them wrong? The Japanese, that’s who. The Japanese television show Honma Dekka!? hired experts in fluid mechanics, engineering, and dentistry to determine the best way to hold a burger so that you don’t end up wearing most of it after one bite.
According to science, the way we usually hold a burger with our fingers all on top and just our thumbs on the bottom is what makes it squish and fall apart. Instead, we should be putting only three fingers on top with our pinkies and thumbs on the bottom. Now you have something new to try next time you’re at a burger joint.
