In Other News – 13 December 2016

2 min read


I love burgers. They’re possibly one of the most perfect foods, a wonderful combination of just charred meat, melted cheese, smoky bacon and perhaps even a pickle. Problem is, I can only really ever eat one good burger – and who wants to do that? That’s why sliders are great, giving us diminutive burgers that let us stuff our faces multiple times.

To make it even better? Use a pretzel bun. I love laugenbrotchen; lye soaked breads that are dipped in the alkaline solution before being baked. It helps increase the Maillard reaction, leading to a deliciously chewy, tasty as hell bread. I’ll have a dozen.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • “Problem is, I can only really ever eat one god burger”

    I totally agree 😛

    • Lord Chaos

      Damn it, you beat me to it.

      I wanted to ask where one gets these

      • At Burger King xD

        • Bruce Bielie

          No. God is higher than any king. Now if it was Burger King of Kings…

        • Lord Chaos

          Their burgers really aren’t that great. I prefer Rocco Mammas

          • Closest one to me is in Stellenbosch. And no God burger is worth going into there for.

          • Captain JJ

            Yea. That’s for sure.

          • Captain JJ

            Roccomammas is alright. I wasn’t that impressed. Better than Burger King of course.

          • Admiral Chief Argonian


        • Captain JJ

          Those are false prophet burgers.

          • How am I supposed to trust someone that does not eat sauce on their burgers? xD

          • Lord Chaos


          • Pariah ???

            your quite astute their 😀

          • Lord Chaos

            He deserved it, Burger king killing his brain

          • Dresden

            Are you trying to trigger him?!

          • I noticed Mr. Smarty Pants

          • Captain JJ

            I eat some sauces! Blue cheese sauce for one. Or just really old normal cheese sauce, tastes very similar 😛

          • Pariah ???

            The phrase you’re looking for is “went off 3 years ago”

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      It’s “tasty as hell” apparently.

      • The same way you get Holy water?. Boil the hell out of it!

        • Bruce Bielie

          Boiled burgers? Exactly how stoned are you???

          • Pariah ???

            NO DONT ASK!

          • I don’t need to be stoned to be THIS crazy.

          • Pariah ???

            Well you DID mention Burger King. I bet they boil their burgers. Only way they could be so terrible, really. We don’t know what McD’s does to theirs, but I think it involved a syringe, bunsen burner and exactly three drops of concentrated meth.

          • Stop, you’re making my mouth drool…

          • Pariah ???

            No, that’s your braincells slowly dying one by one from eating Burger King. 🙂

          • Lord Chaos

            Thanks, I just spat out my beer.

  • Captain JJ

    A god burger sounds a bit too saintly for me. I might burst into flames if I pick it up.
    Also, on a serious note: PERHAPS even a pickle?
    Pickle or more pickle, there is no perhaps.

    • Pariah ???

      That sounds like quite a pickle you’ve found yourself in.

  • Admiral Chief Argonian

    Had a 200g rump meat burger today with black mushroom sauce and Danish feta….loved it!
