Sushi is so 2006 and bacon is totally 2008, but what random
food fad is on the cool horizon this year? Burgers. Why burgers? They’re as
all-American as you can get –even more American than apple pie and baseball,
which are really just variations of German and British inventions respectively. Plus, they're a great compliment for 2008's just passing trend, bacon.
In honor of this great American feat of food engineering, I
am proud to bring you the must-have burger gizmos of the upcoming year.
1. The Hamburger Bed
This is quite possibly my favorite burger invention. Who
doesn’t want to sleep between two toasty buns with a nice piece of lettuce
pressed against their skin? It costs around $2000 although the creator, Kayla Kromer, doesn’t seem to believe people really want to buy the bed. I say
it’s your duty to prove her wrong, dear readers!
2. Burger Cushion and Blanket
I know, it's a recession. Not everyone can just throw down a few grand to have one of the awesomest beds on earth. If you, like me, are one of them there "poor people," you may just have to settle for this cute burger cushion with matching blanket. It may not be a whole bed, but hey, it will keep you warm, cozy, and most importantly, stylish.
3. Burger Coasters
Coasters are generally so boring and so ugly –especially
when not in use. Enter burger coasters, providing classic kitsch style
paired with contemporary functionality. Just make sure it doesn’t get mixed up
with your McDonald’s one night, resulting in plastic overload.
4. Burger Boosters
Maybe you're just not into coasters though. I mean, they are pretty square. If that's the case, then you can always touch up your kitchen or living room with these double-decker burger foot stools. (Happy children munching on french fries sold seperately.)
