What did we do to deserve this?

A new wacko burger stuffed with Reese’s Peanut Butter cups is blowing up the Internet, scandalizing chocolate and burger purists alike. The Works Kanata, a Canadian burger restaurant, posted photos of their monstrous new creation on October 19th, and people just can’t look away.

Look, we love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. We love ground beef. But together? No. We have serious, fundamental issues with that.

“Classic Reese peanut butter stuff’d right inside our juicy beef patty and topped with crispy onion strings, two strips of smoked bacon and even more peanut butter cups!” the restaurant captioned photos of their new burger. “You’ve never tried anything like this before! Bragging rights its unique, real Reese’s peanut butter cups stuff’d right inside!!”

On the Facebook post, one person commented, quite reasonably: “So disgusting.” The Works Kanata responded: “Haha we also thought this can’t be a good burger. Everyone who has ordered it, absolutely loves it!”

Oh, Canada. We’d expect this from America, maybe. But not from you.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I don’t really think that 7 likes and 35 shares counts as “blowing up the Internet.”
