Breaking News: US Invades Paris

How's THAT for a headline?

So I'm checking out the NY Times this morning and see this story about the invasion of Paris. Before you start making your protest signs, there are no tanks or military weapons involved.

It's the invasion of the -gasp- burger. Behold, Frenchie's burger.So not what we're used to seeing. Leave it to the French to mess up one of my favorite American meals. Would you pay $56 for a burger and fries? If your answer is yes, call me. Let's do lunch.

What's the big deal? Well, for those of you whose only exposure to France is from Pepe le Pew or french fries (until you started calling them "freedom fries"), I'll explain.

The French don't typically eat with their hands. So imagine the difficult task of eating a burger with a fork and knife. Where's the fun in that?

However, with Americans seeking the comforts of McDonalds and bypassing local fare, the French caved and are doing their own twist on our beloved burger. This story tells all about it and includes the recipes for some of these, including a T-bone steak burger. Seems like a waste of a perfectly good steak to me.

Now, I want a burger.
