It is National Burger Day. At least that’s what Twitter tells me. I figured now is the perfect time to take a look at three of the most legendary and nostalgic burger moments that we have witnessed.
Bubble Bass’ Deluxe Order
I’m going to say that Bubble Bass was one of the most frustrating characters in all of television. Especially for my 6 year old self watching this episode of Spongebob. This big ass fish had the audacity to walk into the Krusty Krab like he owned the place. When he gets to the counter, Squidward hits him with the most Squidward response, “Let me guess Tiny. A small salad?” Bubble Bass proceeds to order a “Double Triple Bossy On a Raft, 4×4 Animal Style, Extra Shingles, with a shimmy and a squeeze, light axle grease make it cry, burn it, and let it swim.”
That order translated to English is a burger with 6 all-beef patties with everything, texas toast instead of buns, the original 6 patties multiplied by 4, so 24 patties with 24 cheese slices. All of that cooked in mustard and topped with secret sauce and grilled onions with extra toast, two per layer so 14 total with jelly, orange juice to drink, light butter, extra grilled onion, the patties cooked well-done and extra secret sauce.
The worst part is that he had the audacity to have Spongebob remake the order over and over saying that he forgot the pickles. In the end, Bubble Bass was hiding the pickles under his tongue the whole time and was just looking for some free food. Seems about right.
In 1997, one of the most legendary movies, for me at least, was released. Everything was going great for Good Burger until a rival restaurant, Mondo Burger, opens close by. Dexter and Ed sense that something isn’t right and go on a mission to shut down Mondo Burger. This movie has it all. There’s comedy, a catchy theme song, and Shaq. Any movie that has Shaq in it gets instant brownie points.
Big Kahuna Burger
Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) and Vincent (John Tavolta) are hit men who just rolled up on Brett (Frank Whaley) their victim. They are there to intimidate Brett because he owes their boss some chedda. Jules cuts the tension by helping himself to Brett’s burger and drink. Just a legendary moment in a legendary movie.
I’m about to go grab a burger myself in celebration of National Burger Day. No mayo of course. Hold it.
