$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!

$200 Burger story found over at Luxist. (Thanks Kyle)

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
