In-n-out-animal-style

I’m under strict, strict instructions from Geoff to not post a Tasty Tuesday ION about KFC and their dunked wings, which taste like spicy heaven had hell invaded and set fire to the Pearly Gates with secret herbs and spices. So fine. I won’t talk about KFC for once. Instead, I’ll introduce you to one of the greatest fast foods that I have ever had the joy of experiencing. I’m talking about the…

…In ‘n Out Double Down burger. Animal style baby! It’s an LA delicacy that Geoff introduced me to during my very first trip to E3 back in 2013, and it has become a Lazygamer tradition to pig out on one of these every time we’re in the city of angels. Unlike other fast food burgers, In ‘n Out boasts ingredients fresher than my phat beats at a rap battle, with the prices for one of these tastebud treasures being well in the affordable range. They’re also deceptively filling for their size, and nothing beats having covered a week of gaming than to sit down with one of these burgers and gorge on it. With fries and a soft drink, of course.

            I get that a lot. It’s frustrating. The spelling kills me.

            I misspelled?

            Not this time, no. But I wasn’t referring to your spelling, specifically. It was just a general comment to show what nasty really is.

            Oh… sorry. It’s hard to work and comment regularly but that’s no excuse.

            I always feel sorry for people when that happens and try to explain. I’ve been told that I should just leave it.

      There nothing wrong with that if they picked it up again in 5 seconds.
