Oh, I do love every time there is a new Wolf Thing Bat Mother figure to write about because the titles of my posts sound like I just played dictionary roulette when creating it. And this dude might be the best of them all because not only is he called a Burger Bandit, but he's painted up to look like an actual hamburger. Being an American this pleases me more than you could ever understand and to show my appreciation I will now share with you the best hamburgers I've ever eaten. The all time best was at an Irish pub in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. There was something interesting mixed in with the meat itself which gave it a unique flavor that has yet to be topped by any hamburger since. My second best hamburger was consumed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and was comprised of buffalo meat. This was so delicious I wanted to slap the table and curse but I didn't since my wife's grandmother was sitting across from me, even though I'm sure her vocabulary could make mine blush like a debutante. I didn't want to be shamed in my word choice. The third best hamburger ever was at a now defunct restaurant on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The place looked like someone had abandoned a house, then some amazing chef's moved in claiming squatters rights, and did absolutely nothing to change the crumbling decor. The dishes were miss matched and Sharon found a toothbrush laying on the bathroom sink, but the burger made me proud that my family settled there four hundred years ago. Honorable mention goes to an Irish pub in New Hope, Pennsylvania, which makes me wonder what ground beef secrets these Irish folks are passing down through the generations.
I'm beyond hungry now so let's get these particulars down so I can go eat. Joseph Harmon not only created this culinary freak of nature, but he hand painted each one himself making the The Hamburgler look like a common criminal by comparison.
