Good morning TAY! Tim was not sure whether he’d be able to do today’s Forum, so I’m covering for him. The power! The powwwerrrr!! (and, much thanks to him for making the header image!)
So, I started playing Aviary Attorney over the weekend! It’s clearly inspired by the Ace Attorney franchise, but so far it’s using my familiarity with that other lawyer franchise to mess with my expectations. Something happens after the first case that Ace Attorney has never had the balls to do (afaik), so already right off the bat, it sets itself apart. It’s weird to say, but a Kickstarted visual novel starring 19th century public domain furry art is way more mature than I was expecting! Also, I’ve been recording my playthrough. So perhaps those videos will be going up on the TAY Youtube channel soonish!
But with that out of the way, let’s look at the topic of the day...
BURGER DOG VS. HOT-HAM SMACKDOWN!
I need your help, TAY. No... the world needs your help.
You see, last week I saw a cute cheeseburger recipe online and decided to make it for shits and giggles. I present to you........ the Burger Dog.
Okay, stay with me here. It’s basically a cheeseburger retrofitted into a hot dog bun. You take a stick of cheddar cheese and compact ground beef around it so that it’s vaguely hot dog shaped, and then grill it up like a hot dog. (As you can see with the above picture, I cooked it a little too long and the cheese started oozing out a bit.) You can add toppings like ketchup and pickles, just like you would for a regular cheeseburger. And unlike a cheeseburger, you can eat it with one hand! AMAZING idea, right?! Really brings a whole new element into the “is a hot dog a sandwich” debate...
Well it appears some certain plebeians did not appreciate the obvious genius of this culinary chimera.
YOU FOOLS! A Burger Dog is nothing more than a cheeseburger in a - contrary to Nach’s take on it - purposefully silly shape! I can’t imagine why that would negate what is otherwise a good old fashioned cheeseburger! I made it hot dog shaped because it was cute, damn it. Because it was cute!
But it doesn’t end there. A couple days later, invadingduck fired back with his own Frankenstein monstrosity.
As Jayjay Falcon would say, “Terrible. Just terrible.”
I still have a ton of cheddar sticks in my refridgerator and may be making more Burger Dogs this weekend in order to use them up. But should I?! Settle this for us, TAY!
- Who wins, the Burger Dog or the Hot-Ham?? (definition of “win” open to interpretation)
- Is a Burger Dog a sandwich? Is a Hot-Ham a hot dog?
- What kind of bizarre foods have you made before? Eaten before?
- Share your silly kitschy recipes!
- Speaking of Aviary Attorney, what are some games that were clearly inspired by previous classics but may have successfully surpassed them?
Or, just talk amongst yourselves! (But definitely remember to cast your vote.)
A song to help start your day!
