In what is surely terrible news for anyone who treats their car like a mobile cafeteria, an Alabama man was pulled over and cited for distracted driving in Georgia after he was observed eating a McDonald’s Double Quarter Pounder for two consecutive miles. The offense, which I will refer to as “DWB” (driving with burger) is part of an increasing crackdown on face-stuffing drivers in states such as California, New Jersey and Illinois.

Even though a traffic lawyer has reported that the distracted driver law does not explicitly mention food, the man was still considered to be straying from safe vehicle operation and was slapped with a ticket, a February court date and the following sage advice: “You can’t just go down the road eating a hamburger.”

You have Matthew Ramsey to blame for the fact that you just started drooling. It starts with two “cheeseburger waffles” for the buns which sandwich fried chicken, sriracha mustard, rocket salsa, smoked bacon, American cheese, and a dill pickle in between. Yes, please!

The-Cure-Burger-Red-Robin

Planning on imbibing a bit on New Year’s Eve? Well, you’re probably going to need a major hangover cure for the next day. Red Robin is offering a “secret” burger starting on January 1 that should help alleviate the symptoms caused by hitting the bottle a little too hard.

The Cure Burger, which is available by request only, features a beef-patty with chili, cheddar cheese, bacon, mushrooms and a sunny-side-up egg on a sesame seed bun. It’s also served with bottomless steak fries. Trust me, that burger’s got all the greasy, salty goodness your body needs to repair itself.

If things get really out of hand, Red Robin has you covered.  The burger will be available until January 7th, and it will be priced at $11.99 (though prices may vary by location).

It took eight long centuries for the raw meat that Mongolian soldiers stashed under their saddles to evolve into the modern hamburger we know and love today. But the burger’s journey is an interesting one, and if you’d like to learn more, you can watch this clip from Nat Geo’s EAT: The Story of Food: The History of the Hamburger. Wow, I’m kind of craving a burger now.

I’ve seen my share of extreme burgers, but this ginormous stack from Nick of Dude Foods takes the cake. He was inspired by the Nerd Lunch Podcast. The show hosts were discussing what five toppings they would choose on a bacon cheeseburger if they could only replicate those five toppings for the rest of their lives. They debated, but Nick decided to just make a bacon cheeseburger with every topping they listed. It includes:

Cream cheese
A burger patty topped with Cheddar cheese and bacon
French fries
Hatch green chillies
Goat cheese
Blue cheese
A middle bun with peanut butter on it
A second burger patty topped with American cheese
Onion rings (battered, not breaded per CT’s specifications)
Chili
Mushrooms (sauteed in bacon fat because according to Jess regular mushrooms are “too vegetarian”)
Swiss cheese
Beetroot (this is apparently a legit burger topping in Australia, which is where Jess is from)
A fried egg
A couple more onion rings (because you can never have too many onion rings)
Mustard

I can’t wrap my head or stomach around this concoction.

The fifth season of The Walking Dead is about to begin, and Fox teamed up with two London cooks to make burgers that taste like humans. Seriously.

Miss Cakehead and Chef James Tomlinson from Mess London made the burgers from a combination of pork, chicken livers, veal, and bone marrow.

No, they didn’t eat humans to see if they had just the right flavor.

Instead, they looked at interviews with actual cannibals like Issei Sagawa and William Seabrook to get the right taste and texture. The burgers will be available for free on September 30th at a pop-up London restaurant called the Terminus Tavern. It’s location is a secret so you’ll have to watch the #TerminusTavern hashtag on twitter if you want to find out where it is.

Everyone is excited because Fall is here so it’s time to pumpkin all the things. Usually it’s lattes, muffins, and donuts, but this time, it’s your burger. You start with a coffee-rubbed grass-fed beef patty, then add caramelized onion, pumpkin spiced duck bacon, pumpkin aioli, lettuce and tomato all sandwiched on a brioche bun. Pumpkin spiced duck bacon? Who knew that was even a thing?

We’ve already seen a burger with black buns, and that was weird enough. But this time Burger King went even further with black cheese.

According to NariNari, the Kuro (Black) burgers will be available in two varieties they’re calling Kuro Pearl and Kuro Diamond. They have buns and cheese made with bamboo charcoal, an onion and garlic sauce made with squid ink and beef patties made with black pepper.

You can get these limited edition burgers beginning later this month. Black cheese though? Yuck.

There are all kinds of burgers and just as many buns to hold them, but this blue burger bun designed to look like Earth has got to be the weirdest of the lot. It’s even got green accents to look like the continents. You can find this very weird chicken burger at Japanese science museum Orbi Yokama. Try it if you dare.
