Steaks and Shakes and Angioplasty
This commercial is not a product of The Onion. It is not parody. There is really a place out there that sells burgers topped with buns "slathered" with "real Wisconsin butter"- a LOT of it, if the depiction of butter application here is at all realistic.
(EDIT: Just looked it up. The burger depicted here contains 710 calories. That's compared to 420 for a Quarter Pounder, 560 in a Big Mac and 670 in a Whopper, all w/o cheese.)
I'm simultaneously horrified and hungry from this ad. I want one of these burgers, and I also think they should be illegal. I'm both relieved that there are no Steaks and Shakes franchises anywhere near where I live and also wondering if they do long-distance delivery.
These burgers look absolutely disgusting. I'm sad to think I'll probably never get to try one.
