A Tale of Three Burgers


“It was the best of burgers, it was the worst of burgers, it was the burger of value, it was the burger of expense, it was the burger of service, it was the burger of incredulity, it was the burger of quality, it was the burger of waste, it was the burger of hope, it was the burger of despair, we had condiments before us, we had ketchup packets before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way–in short, the burger was so far like the present meal, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being eaten, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”
