Burger King just launched a new sandwich (using the term loosely here) for sale in Japan only:
The MEAT MONSTER: two hamburgers patties, two slices of cheese, a chicken breast, three pieces of bacon, mayo, lettuce, tomato and onion. For those who really want it “their way,” a fish patty, fried egg and teriyaki sauce are all additional options.
Okay, so I’m not even going to talk about the calories in this thing (1160, twice a Whopper’s) or whether anything that is processed, transported, and preserved as much as the items in this kind of fast food can even truly be called “food.” Whether you’re a gelatin-eschewing vegan or a proud meat-on-bone-eater, conscious eating is good eating, from both a moral and pragmatic (Howdy Earth, we’re killing you!) standpoint.
When mass-produced meat is piled on mass-produced meat for the sake of, well, mass, and gobbled down with no recognition of the individual components, or their flavors, or the nourishment they provide–it’s a shame. It’s a big fuck-you to our bodies, to the animals that died to be part of this “anything that fits” flesh Jenga. It celebrates the industry of mass produced edibles. It applauds indulgence and thoughtlessness and gluttony. It’s a fuck-you to food. And dear gawd, I love food more than anything. I will CUT you if you fuck with food.
But seriously guys, that thing just looks GROSS. Tell it to leave Japan alone!
