Found Burger: Hamburger Telephone

Since the Burger365 of the day is phone related, here’s a “Found Burger”: Hamburger Telephone from Janice of J’s Los Angeles Area Burgermap. This looks similar to the one featured in the movie “Juno”.  Is there a special speed dial to In-N-Out on it?

Burger Fact #4

From Wikipedia:

Invention of meat choppers

Referring to ground beef as hamburger dates to the invention of the mechanical meat choppers during the 1800s. The meat grinder was purportedly invented by Dr. Karl Drais in the 19th century. It wasn’t until the early nineteenth century that wood, tin, and pewter cylinders with wooden plunger pushers became common. Patents were filed for some designs that were interpreted as meat choppers.

  • E. Wade received Patent Number x5348 on January 26, 1829 for what may be the first

patented “Meat Cutter.” The patent shows choppers moving up and down onto a rotating block.

  • G. A. Coffman received Patent #3935 on February 28, 1845 for an “Improvement in Machines for Cutting Sausage-Meat” using a spiral feeder and rotating knives something like a modern food grinder.

Burger #29 – Phone Wrap

Can you hear me now?

Today’s art is a custom burger design wrap for my phone with matching phone art background image.  And yes I know that my phone is old (but still works).  Can you even call the current tech “phones” anymore?  Talk is just good enough for me… unless anyone wants to donate me their IPhone. =p
