Today’s design is a painted burger key chain/bottle opener. Maybe these keys will unlock the doors to more burgers? ()
Burgers are everywhere. ()

Thanks to J, Shepard Fairey of Obey Giant has an “Obey Burger” sticker. We were able to meet him at La Cita last night before he got on the turntables and rocked the party. He seemed to dig the sticker (giving us some of his own) and was even gracious enough to snap a quick photo with me.

The fabric of our “burgers”…
Today’s burger design is created with cotton balls. In general, cotton is very practical and useful. Why, you are probably wearing something made of cotton this instant. Hmmmm, now I want a burger this instant. ()

Who is Don Gorske you ask? Don Gorske is know from eating over 23,000 McDonald’s Big Mac hamburgers ( I suppose he completed Big Mac 365). He’s been in the Guinness Book of Records, featured in two documentaries (“Super Size Me” and “Don Gorske: Mac Daddy”) and is the author of the book “22,477 Big Macs”.Burger Profile: Don Gorske
Its pretty crazy that he has eaten so many Big Macs and has no health concerns.
“In 2003, Don Gorske ate 741 Big Macs, an average of 2.03 Big Macs per day. Gorske is 6 foot 2 inches tall, 185 pounds, and claims a cholesterol level of 140. His claimed average daily consumption of two Big Macs amounts to 1,080 calories, according to the nutritional information published by McDonald’s; this does not take into account his energy intake from fluids. The USDA recommends about 2,200 calories per day. Gorske consumes mainly calorie-rich food, but he maintains a stable weight by eating fewer calories than the average American.”
Here’s an interesting health article on Don at 180 Degree Health.

An “Apple Burger” a day, keeps the doctor away?
As I start out on the next 100, there are still a lot of different ideas for burger shapes that I haven’t even gotten to yet. It will be challenging to keep every design fresh and interesting. With that in mind, here is a crisp new apple design for today. It was delicious. ()

Fundred dolla bills y’all…
We’ve reached the 100th design milestone here at Burger365 and Mask365. Today’s design goes out to a good cause, The Fundred Dollar Bill Project:
“Help make safe the lead-contaminated soil in U.S. cities that puts thousands of children at risk for severe learning disabilities and behavioral problems. New Orleans is one of the most lead-contaminated cities in the U.S.–this is where the solution starts.”

Burger365 X Skull-A-Day
Today’s special burger design is dedicated to Skull-A-Day, the inspiration of this site. Artist Noah Scalin created a Skull-A-Day for one year and posted the images on his website, as I am doing now with burgers.
Here is my “Skull Burger” – before and after (raw and grilled).
Be sure to check out the Skull-A-Day website and view all the different skull images that Noah came up with. ()

Got a light?
Today’s burger design is a carved candle. You’ve probably heard of the bacon scented candle, but did you know that White Castle recently was selling a burger scented candle? It looks like it sold out faster than anticipated. Too bad I wasn’t able to get one, but hopefully they will bring them back soon. ()

Looks like Burger King is getting into the unorthodox burger scene.
