Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 01, 2017

The burger emoji is sparking some controversy online. Google's version of the emoji on Android shows the cheese beneath the burger and above the bun. While the cheese placement isn't new, a writer and media analyst started a debate that went viral over the weekend over whether or not it should be placed on top or below the burger. ... Following backlash on Twitter, Google CEO Sundar Pichai tweeted he would "drop everything" on Monday to address the debate, clarifying "if folks can agree on the correct way to do this!"

I am incensed. The cheese goes on top of the meat!

For God's sake, the Cold War is over, yet we still have to put up with Russian propaganda on a daily basis. Does Putin have no shame? First it was my Pokemon, now this?!

It should go, bottom bun meat,cheese, lettuce, tomato, then top bun.

During cooking the cheese must always be on top. Less chance of mess to keep it that way. I always put the tomato on top, next to the bun with ketchup on it. Lettuce between the tomato and melted cheese. The bottom bun needs mustard, pickle and onion. Yum, yum, eatumup. The condiments make the burger, which is why fast food burgers suck.

My favorite place, cheese on bottom condiments on top. Condiments don't slide off of cheese that way.

Everyone knows that the cheese goes under the beef patty to keep the meat's juices from making the bottom bun soggy.

WRONG You put a thin layer of mayo down on the bun to act as a barrier to prevent the bun from becoming soggy. The cheese goes on top so it will melt into tasty goodness.

NO NO NO I don't like crunchy bun syndrome. I love effortlessly gliding my teeth through the bun and into that meaty essence covered melted cheese covered goodness..

Who cares how you stack it.

Can someone please tell me why we call it a hamburger?

Was it originally made from ham? WTF does burger mean?

And why is it when we remove the buns it becomes a Salisbury steak?

Also. Why do some people put eggs in the meat?

If any of you are lucky enough to make it to California. You've gotta go to In-N-Out Burger. Best fast food burger joint in the world.

Burger originated in Hamburg nothing to do with ham.

Also, the Frankfurter should be called a Praguer, or at least that's what the Czech's claim.

There have been many claims about the origin of the hamburger, but the origins remain unclear.[4] The popular book "The Art of Cookery made Plain and Easy" by Hannah Glasse included a recipe in 1758 as "Hamburgh sausage", which suggested to serve it "roasted with toasted bread under it". A similar snack was also popular in Hamburg by the name "Rundstück warm" ("bread roll warm") in 1869 or earlier,[5] and supposedly eaten by many emigrants on their way to America, but may have contained roasted beefsteak rather than Frikadeller. Hamburg steak is reported to have been served between two pieces of bread on the Hamburg America Line, which began operations in 1847. Each of these may mark the invention of the Hamburger, and explain the name.

There is a reference to a "Hamburg steak" as early as 1884 in the Boston Journal.[OED, under "steak"] On July 5, 1896, the Chicago Daily Tribune made a highly specific claim regarding a "hamburger sandwich" in an article about a "Sandwich Car": "A distinguished favorite, only five cents, is Hamburger steak sandwich, the meat for which is kept ready in small patties and 'cooked while you wait' on the gasoline range."[6]

Claims of invention
According to Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, the hamburger, a ground meat patty between two slices of bread, was first created in America in 1900 by Louis Lassen, a Danish immigrant, owner of Louis' Lunch in New Haven, Connecticut.[7] There have been rival claims by Charlie Nagreen, Frank and Charles Menches, Oscar Weber Bilby, and Fletcher Davis.[8][9] White Castle traces the origin of the hamburger to Hamburg, Germany with its invention by Otto Kuase.[10] However, it gained national recognition at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair when the New York Tribune referred to the hamburger as "the innovation of a food vendor on the pike".[9] No conclusive argument has ever ended the dispute over invention. An article from ABC News sums up: "One problem is that there is little written history. Another issue is that the spread of the burger happened largely at the World's Fair, from tiny vendors that came and went in an instant. And it is entirely possible that more than one person came up with the idea at the same time in different parts of the country."

Google in a Pickle Over Burger Emoji

Posted by PinkyanTheBrain

Good job pinky! This is the exact same DISTRACTION story fox news ran when manafort was indicted on monday. Every real news network was covering the largest scandal in recent history. Fox was talking about burger emojis.

Nice to see you bringing fox news propaganda techniques to the DR.

I'm a member of the Pitmaster Club at Amazingribs.com.

One of the perks of membership is they put together 1-hour interviews of various experts. One of the interviews was about hamburgers. Regarding buns, the guy being interviewed said, "I like a ------ bun. Cheap white bread is perfect." Basically, from his POV, he wants to bun to be bland so it doesn't detract from the star of the show: the burger itself.

Have any of you ever noticed that a steak can safely be cooked to medium rare, but ground beef needs to be cooked well done to be safely consumed? That's because with beef, pathogens are on the surface of the meat, so when you grind the meat the surface makes contact with the interior. Well, if you have your own meat grinder, purchase a chuck roast, drop it into a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds, and then grind it. Do that, and your ground beef can now be safely cooked to medium rare, if you prefer. I learned this from the same interview mentioned in the previous paragraph.

On topic, cheese on top. Duh.

"Well, if you have your own meat grinder, purchase a chuck roast, drop it into a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds, and then grind it."

And if you want to avoid eating a hamburger made with beef from five countries, and maybe pink slime, just pick out your own piece of chuck at the grocery store and have them grind it for you.

The grocery store I shop at grinds their own meat. For burgers, I purchase ground chuck and cook it until it's well done. I don't mess with a panade or any garbage like that. The rendering fat keeps the meat moist. I cook indirect and then sear right before the burger comes off the grill. I sometimes will add a small chunk of pecan wood to the fire to add a little smokey goodness.

Imagine if Google had put Dijon Mustard on the burger. Conservatives would be pissing themselves over such a scandal like its 2009.
