    Yes, to say i did it. I'd make them leave the mushrooms off, tho, i don't eat mushrooms. Well for the most part ;)

    But i'm one of those people who would pay $300 for a bottle of Dom from a particular year, for a special celebration. A lot of people would disagree with that.

    You only live once :)

    already did...

    As some of you might know I was in London for New Years, while I was over I stayed in the Grosvenor House. Room service featured a hamburger that cost £25.00, at a current exchange rate of $1.65 to the unit, that's $41.25... I'll have you know I ate 3 of them while I was there (not to mention several $50 club sandwiches).

    You're right.. the first night the bun was actually soggy, but other nights they were really good sanchwiches (although not $41 good).

    I practically did!

    Went to McDonalds in Oslo some years ago.

    I ordered a burger, fries & drink. It was over $25. It's probably more now.

    I hate McDonalds & I never go there in U.S. but for some reason I love going there in when in foreign cities.

    A lot of people go to expensive restaraunts and get food that they could have found cheaper, because of the dining experience and quality of the ingredients. It's not getting ripped off if someone pays it willingly. My favorite restaraunt here in Des Moines is called Cafe Chat Noir, and it's very easy to spend $50-75 for a light dinner there per person. That's without even touching the wine list.

    i never feel like i got "ripped off" when i go eat there. i enjoy myself all night, the check notwithstanding.

    May be because (at list Mac Donlads) uses cleaner facilities in other countries.

    I would pay $41 for a burger, of course may be once a year just to have experience, that is it.

    Would I eat a $41 burger?

    Under normal circumstances, no. But it depends on how hungry I was.

    Oh shut up for god sakes. I do not think one hamburger is a good reason to attack a whole country, joking or not. What the heck have you people given the world? A show and a movie that both have the word Crocodile in their names?

    How's the bandwidth limit over there?

    mac15, i've agreed wholeheartedly with what you've said in other threads on this subject, but do shut up. this is not the place for political ranting. this is a thread about hamburgers. The question is whether or not you would buy this burger, obviously you would not. Moving right along...

    Hey, I 100% agree there you dumb ****. I'm no crazy patriot. We mostly are arrogant *******s. But for you to insult the US over a hamburger... I mean, that just makes you look like the *******.

    If it wasn't for the US, there'd be no macs. :)

    Even though he was joking, scansing, I think he meant that in a positive way. Just because he uses the Australian flag as his avatar, it doesn't mean he hates all other countries.

    Judging by how you replied, however, it didn't sound like you meant to imply any positive comical aspect. How do you think he feels?

    >(mac15) Well, a $41 hamburger, what is america coming to you already eat to much junk food crap compared to any other country on ths earth

    The hamburger I wanted to have discussed was not for the intent of McDonalds, or some other place. There was a report on NBC, or CBS (I don't remember exactly) discussing the hamburger, and the hamburger is only presented in NYC.

    >and now your going to get ripped off in the process. USA USA USA :p

    Not ripped off. According to the TV report, those who commented on the hamburger would buy it again. The people dedicated to perfecting the colassis mentioned they were not doing this to rip off people, but to make people "get their money's worth". One of the comments about why $41 was it's better than a $40 hamburger. :p

    >(springscansing) Hey, I 100% agree there you [mac15]. I'm no crazy patriot. We mostly are arrogant *******s. But for you to insult the US over a hamburger... I mean, that just makes you look like the *******.

    I have this rule that goes "Anyone who is or tries to look like an ******* is not allowed to be given a responsibility." mac15, i.e. chris, is an administrator at FunMac.com and manages the site quite well. If you don't trust me, check out the site and register, if you would like.

    Again, I don't think chris meant this as an insult, except in a comical fashion.

    But let's get back to the meat at hand. :cool:

    Cheers Cobra I think you summed up what I meant there very well, I never really meant to insult the US, it was more a comical gesture to pic at your foibles.

    Yeah, I would, just to say I'd tried it. :D I love "gourmet" hamburgers but I only eat maybe three or four a year (which is a good thing. ;) )

    I've cut down a LOT on junk/fast food, and it's definitely helped my weight.

    I would eat a $41 burger, provided someone bought it for me :D Oh, I'd want a side order of onion rings to go with it, if you don't mind:D :D
