    The idea behind putting the cheese under the burger is so you can add condiments with the top bun sticking to the cheese.

    I managed a Speedway gas station several years ago and we made hot sandwiches during lunchtime and were trained to put the cheese under the patty for that reason.

    At home it always goes on top.

    Did this include hot dogs?

    A Whatchamacallit.  But it's close.  And they can swap very easily.  I'll eat a Twix for a while and then switch back.  

    Side note, I found that a Twix tastes better to me if I eat the bar upside down.  Not sure why.  Somebody once told me they didn't like cheese under their burger, only on top and I was nonplussed.  But after trying it, it made sense.  I tried it with a Twix and it was a similar effect.  Also, if the Twix is chilled, I'll eat the caramel off first, then eat the cookie.  That cookie is so good.  Wish Twix just sold a box of cookies made of that stuff.

    Maybe I should've been paying more attention during my time in Australia, but WTF has even put cheese under the burger? Maybe try putting gasoline on top of your car?

    I don't know if it's a classic, but it is everywhere, and I think it's categorized as a protein bar not a candy bar, but the sweet, salty, crunchy, nutty, chocolately spirit of a candy bar resides deep with the KIND bar.

    This is not smart reasoning.  In Philly, our electric company is called PECO.  Do you think it's pronounced PEE-CO or FEE-CO?  But Philly is dumb, you say?  Have you heard of CERN?  The people who made the Large Hadron Collider.  The "C" in CERN stands for Conseil.  Have you ever heard anyone call it KERN?  No.  It's pronounced SERN.

    The guy who invented the word has said it's pronounced JIF.  If you disagree with him, that's the dumbest thing on the face of the planet.  The fact that people think they can argue against the guy who invented the word is mind bottling.  It really proves how ignorant our species is.

    Go on...

    When you inquire about where we are headed, one person says France and another says Crimea.  The one who said France gives a stare of daggers at the other crew member, then tells you that you should eat your snack and not ask anymore questions.  He gives you a raggedy blanket and escorts you to your new home for the next couple of weeks.  As you enter your cabin, you notice that there is a padlock on the outside of the door.  But before you can say anything, you are pushed into the doorway, stumbling against the far steel wall.  As your face cools against the metal, you hear the door slam shut and the clanking of a chain being moved around the metal handle.  One final metallic click is the last sound you hear, before you realize you are in a windowless room with nothing more than your stained blanket and newly acquired unanswered questions. 

    Was my blanket stained before or after I was locked in a windowless room by potential international smugglers/traffickers/eccentric cooks?

    The island can't cure meats.  It's not some fantasy island.  It's just that this type of pig automatically cooks and turns into bacon when it dies.  You know, island boars.  And the captain is busy sailing the boat.  He's not cooking anything.  Dude can barely cook toast.  He attended culinary school when he was young and failed out.  It was sad.  They hadn't even really gotten to the tough classes yet.  Guy was having trouble with the basics of cooking.  After that, he decided to go into the Navy.  Sailing was in his blood but he had always wanted to pursue his dream of being a Michelin starred chef in the restaurant he owned.  But alas, that dream had been crushed.  And he would become a ship's captain like his father and his father before him.

    Also, you can get a can of Spam.  Just not microwaved.

    I'm not buying it that there is a self-curing island boar that hasn't been exploited to the point of extinction. We work to destroy out ecosystem, no way free bacon gets a pass. No way in hell. 

    And if this guy can't "cook" toast, no way is he a boat captain, and certainly not ex-Navy. Sounds more like Marine material to me.

    My guess is the real captain is locked in the brig, mutinied by the failed-chef-turned-washed-up-first-mate with a dictitorial streak who couldn't measure up to the standards of his fore-fathers. If you can find a way to free the Captain and help regain command of the ship, I'm quite willing to bet you'll be served the finest prepared meals the seven-seas has to offer, in any combination you desire.

    My votes: 

    Jordan, Serena Williams, and Gretzky are the best at their respective sports and that's really, really, really unlikely to ever change.

    Five Guys makes a pretty good burger.  

    Saving your dog over another human being is a pretty crappy thing to do. 

    Undocumented immigrants have, to a small extent, some inalienable rights.  It's the law pursuant to a number or sources. 

    Humans have made at least some negative impact on the climate. 

    Eagles fans are the worst. 

    The Earth is round. 

     

     

     

    Are you considering women's tennis a distinct sport from men's tennis?
