Yesterday I came to you extolling the potential wonders of the Thai burrito. Indeed, the Thai burrito is for me a palpable and inspirational symbol of hope for the cross-culinary fast food fusion that will occur through the delicious menu of the theoretical Froz-T-Freez Drive-In. However, something came to my awareness that has made me step back and re-evaluate whether this fusion I so dearly long for is an unqualified good, desirable and beneficial in all situations. Even as I gloried once again yesterday in the potentials of deep-fried cross-polination, even as I went to lunch today with the intention of getting a black raspberry shake from the local burger drive-through and a carnitas burrito from the local Mexican drive-through and eating them together as if part of the same meal from the same place, I was unaware that my utopian dreams of fusion could be turned to more sinister, diabolical ends. But this commercial changes everything.
As you can imagine, this commercial brought up many challenging questions to the proprietor of a theoretical drive-in. Is this product real or are we being tricked? Do I dare to eat one? Will it make me vomit? Will it be a delicious new taste sensation? Are they going to start frying up burgers at this place just to blend them up, or will they outsource burger production, and if so where will the burgers come from? What will the long-term ramifications of this new product be for my Platonic drive-in? Should I try to make one myself?
I haven’t yet worked my way entirely through all of these questions yet, but I will recommend a place where you can begin to find the answers: http://cheeseburgerchill.com/
