Custom Fast Food: McLuther Burger
A Cheeseburger is 99 cents at the McDonald’s around the corner from the Target where I spent the majority of my Christmas shopping. The same Target, I should mention, where a fellow can add a cool six donuts for $1.49 to that credit card purchase of egregiously priced Star Wars legos. The same Target, lest I forget, where the hustle and bustle of fighting over useless kitchen electronics and blu-ray players can cause said shopper to burn off an on-the-fly breakfast of fried white flour and sugar in quite a hurry.
Lunchtime approaches, and having taken one too many gulps from making merry in this frivolous pursuit of commercialism and handing over of stern-clad Andrew Jackson’s, a bit of economic restraint and damage control is in order.
Some say the perfect strategy for maximizing your McDonald’s Cheeseburger experience is to tease yourself with slow bites, carefully plotting your way to the epicenter of soft bun, beef, ketchup, mustard, onion, cheese and pickle. I say it’s to get creative, and allow sweet and savory to mingle in the curious mixture of melting glaze and melting cheese. Luther who? I’ve never known a Luther, but I’m glad to make the acquaintance of one Mr. McLuther.
