    On Thursday, as the Indian Army's Director General of Military Operations Ranbir Singh revealed that the Army had carried out surgical strikes on "terror launchpads" along the Line of Control, social media exchanges began to heat up in both India and Pakistan. Within minutes of Singh's press conference, cashing in on the virtual jingoism, a food joint in National Capital Region, Burger Singh, sent out a mass text message that read: "In light of the surgical strike by Indian defence forces on terrorist camps (POK). We offer 20% discount on all orders..." spoke to Prashant, a call operator at...

    Why have one sexy model eating a burger when you can have three? Carl’s Jr.’s most recent ad campaign features lots of burgers, bacon, and babes. The fast food chain’s newest item is the Bacon 3-Way Burger. The only thing that sells better than bacon is sex, but the restaurant took that to another level with their Three-Way “Fantasy.” The provocative ad spot features former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Genevieve Morton, along with social media babes Emily Sears and Elena Belle. The women, clad only in white string bikinis, make grilling a greasy fast food burger actually look seductive. The...

    Argentina's Primera Division was home to the most delicious form of heckling over the weekend when Racing fans threw a cheeseburger at Belgrano goalkeeper Juan Olave mid-match. It's unclear what the cheeseburger was supposed to symbolize, maybe it was just the most readily-available object to throw? Either way, Olave picked the dang burger up, took two bites and thanked the crowd. I played goalie in a rec league last year. I got a stitch from drinking too much water. This dude is out here eating cheeseburgers. Meanwhile the commenters on YouTube are afraid for his safety. You know what has...

Momentum Machines has developed a robot that can put out one burger every 10 seconds.

    The Obama administration's nominee for a senior legal position at the Pentagon is one of the congressional staffers accused by Republicans and intelligence officials of stealing classified documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, Fox News has learned -- and the controversy could imperil her shot at a major career promotion. Sources on Capitol Hill and in the intelligence community say Alissa Starzak, a majority staffer on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) who has been nominated for the position of general counsel to the U.S. Army, is one of two SSCI employees accused by the panel's Republicans, and by...

  • Burger King Japan’s New Ninja Burger Comes with a Huge Hulking Slab of Bacon

    Bacon might be the least “ninja” ingredient out there. Aside from being bright-ass red, its scent alone has the power to send every fat kid (or fat kid at heart) running from within at least a three mile radius. Still, we wouldn’t want our ninja burgers made any other way. Starting October 25, Burger King Japan is rolling out a black-bunned hamburger called the “Black Ninja.” Like most of the country’s other chromatically-challenged eats, the BN gets its hue from the bamboo charcoal used to make it, which in this case, also happens to impart a nice smoky smell.

    It's the July Fourth weekend. You could grill salmon or lamb kabobs, but you know what you want: the perfect burger. Recently, barbecue chef extraordinaire Adam Perry Lang taught NPR's David Greene how to make that perfect burger while toiling over a George Foreman Grill in NPR's mail loading dock. "You know when you hit a good burger," says Lang, who wrote Serious Barbecue: Smoke, Char, Baste, & Brush Your Way to Great Outdoor Cooking. "This really makes the ultimate burger." But the ultimate burger takes a lot more than throwing a few beef patties on the grill and toasting...

    At first glance a burger seems like simple food. It's just ground meat in patty form, right? Yes and no. The hamburger is an American icon. It is America's food ambassador to the world. But have we treated it with the respect it deserves? No. The hamburger, like so many things, has become a victim of industrialization. When did it become acceptable to turn this beloved American food into frozen hockey pucks? Was it the kids meal? Was it having a fast food chain on every corner? Maybe we just forgot how a great burger could taste. But times are...

    If you're craving the flavors of a traditional Greek dish (spinach, feta, yum!), but the family is Jonesing for burgers, here's the perfect solution. Greek turkey (or chicken) burgers are quick, delicious, and ridiculously satisfying. Add further touches for a more elaborate burger if you wish (cucumber, roasted peppers), but for now, we've kept it at seriously simple level--without sacrificing tastiness. So pop in the Mamma Mia DVD, crack open a bottle of red, and enjoy.

    ... The Guardian UK thankfully has the fortitude to tell the story of a Burger King Franchise in the Memphis area. They quote the local online paper, the Memphis Flyer (homepage), following up on the original story. In one fell swoop, the Guardian UK took an American Civil Rights issue as well as the Global warming Hoax to another level. A reporter for the Memphis Flyer Chris Davis, noticed a message on the marquis: “Global warming is Baloney”. He took a few pictures and made a few calls. He got a bit of a runaround at first, but he did...

    For a health food nut, President Barack Obama sure likes his burgers. President Barack Obama made a surprise lunchtime stop at Five Guys, a fast-food restaurant in Washington. The president ordered a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeno peppers, and mustard as well as several other cheeseburgers to go. He also ordered a cheeseburger for Brian Williams, news anchor for NBC. The network was filming a day-in-the-life program at the White House. The president snacked on peanuts, and chatted with surprised customers while he waited for his order.... Early this month, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden took a short motorcade...

    MEXICO CITY -- Mexico is protesting what it says is a whopper of an insult. An advertisement for Burger King's Texican Whopper burger that has run in Europe shows a small wrestler dressed in a cape resembling a Mexican flag. The wrestler teams up with a lanky American cowboy almost twice his height to illustrate the cross-border blend of flavors. "The taste of Texas with a little spicy Mexican," a narrator's voice says
