I don’t buy that that cheeseburger came out of a can like that.

From the article:

"Keep in mind that it'll look nowhere near as delicious as the example above when you pull it out of the can."

"Would you eat a cheeseburger in a can?"

Well, I guess I could. But it would have to be an awfully large can.

We have a pretty big can here. Full bathtub, twin vanities, oversize toilet.

I must admit, though, I’ve never tried eating a cheeseburger in there.

Maybe a couple Triscuits and now and again a Mars bar.

I have a medium sized one here. My best friend says that it looks like two apples fighting.

I try and steer clear of cheeseburgers, as they seem to go right to my can, and that's not a good thing.

Maybe a couple of Trisuits and now and again a Mars bar.

That’s hysterical, and so true.

I used to work at a McD’s and often wondered how they got the food in the ad to look so good.

When I worked at McD’s (paper hat era... that’s way long ago) whenever somebody produced a burger that looked like the TV ads, we called it a “Movie Mac”.

Oh, man, when they don’t want to be found you can peel the paneling off the wall and you won’t find them. But make the magic sound and they appear out of thin air.

In the case of the Filet-o-Fish I can tell you from firsthand experience that it would taste better if the ingredients were gelatin, plaster and plastic.

One part should be wet and the other dry....so in a can, it’s all soggy or all dry.

EHEHHC!

Once I couldn't find my favorite cat anywhere, and, reverting to some sort of bizarre displacement reaction, I just stood there crying with my hand holdling down the can opener lever.

Please don't let the military in on this. If they find out about this, the gov't will waste eight bucks on them and we will be stuck eating that stuff. MRE's are bad enough.

Cats LOVE the moist and "meaty" canned fud.

One of the most stomach-turning sounds in the world is a cat loudly smacking when eating what we call, (in establishing some sort of psychological distance from,) "the wet stuff."

All that goes through your head during the juicy smacking sound is: Only God knows what's in that gross stuff. And I prefer to keep it that way.

Our cat, Mr. Aretha, can go from playfulness to playful biting in seconds. Sometimes, it happens so fast it startles me. Once when I flinched, he flopped ass over teacups and tumbled off the bed!

Whoops.

Seconds later, his head pops up from behind the edge of the mattress with a look on his face like “What the hell did you do that for?”

Even if they bagged the bun before canning it, it’s still a shelf-stable meat patty. Gack!

Great minds think alike! I’d love to try it. From what I found it is meant to be for hikers and mountain climbers, etc. And to add to the appeal you boil the unopened can for a while so it gets hot.

Let’s have a canned cheeseburger party! Cheers!
