I mean, they’re not just &^%$# giving it away. It costs $10. But as a note on the chalkboard of this popular Avondale burger joint on Chicago’s Northwest Side makes plain: “Price is negotiable.”

Where’s the Obama burger? A giant pile of baloney served between two marshmallows.

highhopes on January 7, 2009 at 10:26 PM

LOL Ed. There is no beef, just a whole lot of bologna on a stale bun.

AUINSC on January 7, 2009 at 10:47 PM

Sounds good to me. But, can we be careful and not saw off the part where I live? I live about three hours. To close for comfort.

What they forgot to do in Chicago was to THINK

Just a thought!

Kini on January 8, 2009 at 1:24 AM

Yeah, **** me for a sandwich. Who do you think you are, Bill Clinton?

The Obama Burger: After a two year media blitz and hyped to the extreme, you get an empty plate and a bill for twice the advertised price.

The Rev. Wright Burger: Rancid meat on a moldy bun.

The McCain Burger: imported beef patty with swiss cheese, $50 lettuce, e-coli infested Mexican tomatos, Heinz ketchup, and Miracle Whip on a stale bun. Guarenteed never to agree with you.

The Biden Burger: Just kidding.

The FrankenBurger: A stolen Whopper with cheese.

The Sarah Palin: Doubble decker choice of Moose, Carribou, Elk, or Deer patties, or a combination of any two, shot, dressed, and packed by The Gov. herself! Cheese, toppings, condiments and roll of your choice. A burger for The People!

The Hillary Club: A triple decker of toasted whole wheat, bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and turkey with Obama’s balls as garnish.

The Caroline Kennedy: Rare roast beef on extra-dry white bread with swiss cheese and Grey Poupon; incredibly difficult to swallow.

The Olberman: one heaping plate of BS.

The Nancy Pelosi: A small, costly meatball and marrinara sub that gives you acid indigestion just thinking about it.

The Harry Reid: dry fried chicken patty on a stale hamburger bun left under a heat lamp for a week.

supercool,
funny and clever, I like it.

Offtopic, but according to Australian media you guys are outraged over it:

“Americans miffed at Howard bumping Obama”

“John Howard’s decision to stay at the luxurious Blair House mansion in Washington DC has sparked a firestorm of protest in the US.

Outraged American taxpayers are demanding the former Australian prime minister book a hotel or stay at the Australian embassy.

The story is also a hot topic on US radio and TV talk shows.

For weeks the name of the occupant booked at Blair House on January 12 was a mystery.

President-elect Barack Obama and his family asked to stay at Blair House before taking the keys to the White House but were told it was already booked.”

etc etc

If it were Louisiana Blago would be reelected.

There’s also a new martini in Chicago called the Illinois Senate Seat. A shot of impeach schnapps, a couple of shots of f’n vodka and a splash of Midori (to make green like money). Price negotiable.
