On the heels of their All-Natural Burger introduction that by process of elimination left people asking what was in all their other burgers, Carl’s Jr. quickly rolled out a highly publicized new themed burger. The Tex Mex Bacon Thick Burger. It’s unclear what any of this means except that at this point the Carl Karcher great grandkids are summer interning in the marketing department. Designing a burger around Google trending border war topics seems like a poor culinary rationale. I get it, the blonds are Americans and the brunettes are Mexicans. Why must of think of half-dead Central American children being run by coyotes across the Sonoran while I’m trying to eat my ten thousand calorie burger?
As with all fast food burger buying decisions, just tell me if it tastes good when I’m wasted at two in the morning and does it cost less than five bucks. I don’t care how fucking high you are, you’re never so faded that six bucks for a drive-thru burger makes sense. The connection between erection and hunger remains entirely unproven, though science has shown your odds of getting laid by a model decline in direct proportion to how many meals a week you eat at Carl’s Jr. Good luck with the math. And the gas.
