$200 Burger

(Apologies in advance to all my vegetarian reader out there) Introducing Burger King’s $200 burger! Yes, you read that correctly, BURGER KING has a $200 burger!

“Wagyu beef, white truffles, pata negra ham slices, cristal onion straws, Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt, organic white wine and shallot-infused mayonnaise all served up on an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun.”

Pfff What? No Tyrannosaurus egg on there?

This work of art will be on sale once per week in London and there is a happy ending to the story – proceeds go to the Help a London Child charity. You could always save yourself the heart-attack and just donate $200 straight to the charity but that’s just my craaaaazy opinion.

This burger does not win the biggest burger award though… Who here is a fan of In & Out? You know the double-double? The 4×4 animal style? The mythical 8 by 8. You know what I’m sayin’? I know a girl who even attempted a 16 patty burger. But my friends that is nothing… what I am about to show you will change your life…

And then there’s…

Hahahaha life-changing!

According to Korean tradition, artisans have a habit of destroying and discarding imperfect pieces. Since 2001 Korean artist Yeesookyung has taken these porcelain fragments, creating beautiful, imperfect sculptures by fusing them with gold leaf in the Japanese tradition of kintsugi. See more images from “Translated Vase” below.
