    Who the hell puts lobster on a burger? That just ruins the burger. The only meat that should ever be added is bacon.

    • bigd

      definatley not enough bacon in this post

      • paul

        Chorizo and Halloumi is amazing in a burger

    • The_Dood

      I've got no problem topping a burger with some pulled pork, or better yet, beef brisket. And bacon.

    • Radam3

      ham too! we'll just say any pig meat 🙂

    • Hungry Panda

      $1.39 McDouble, can't beat it

      • Embarrassed Panda

        meant for the post below

      • Hanx

        Apparently not, and 'merica has sworn by it ever since.

    • filthyslob

      had a burger with provolone and genoa salami on top and it was amazing

  • tommy

    Heres the thing. You're an asshole if you pay that much for a burger. That is all.

    • MikeOverHere

      LOL! Jealous much? Losers call winners assholes. Guess what? We winners laugh at your obvious feelings of being emasculated. Bet you have a small cock too. LOL

      • Donkey

        LOL! Righteous much? Douche bags comment on losers calling winners assholes. Guess what? Only child porn directors and agricultural insemination experts laugh at perceived emasculation and place bets on penis sizes. LOL. Now die.

      • bmak

        20 bucks says you have a DG or Coach iPhone case.

      • Justin Cider

        I don't think it has anything to do with jealousy….. the fact that you're willing to blow $500 on a burger when there are people who live off $500 a year is what makes you an asshole.

        • restover

          it's my money

          • Wannabang

            Yes, yes it is. It is also your assholish attitude.

        • Guest

          I see this type of comment so often and think it is quite an ignorant thing to say. By rights if that is the case then you would not own anything or even a house because there are people that aren't able to buy these things. What's the point of trying to better yourself in your career if you can't live the way you want?

      • throwmoneyinafire

        maybe not an asshole, but definitely an idiot.

    • Legion

      And those who make the burger know it too, so everyone of these burgers are served with extra spit.

  • bigd

    welcome to the douche burger, home of the douche burger! can i take your order? #8

    • Meh

      "Don't be a chicken… Mmmooooooo."

    • G. Chapman

      you are what you eat

    • Notme

      Does it at least come with fries?

    • the devil

      Yeah, I'll have a double douche burger with a large order of fuckface fries and a large cockblocker Coke.

  • Tiber_Septim

    #10 The same price could feed 1000 starving kids

    • Melkhiordarkblade

      Or get 10 of those massive burgers #7

      • Dr_StrangePants

        this is the only one whose pricetag come's anywhere close to making sense

      • jim

        which would in turn, feed 1000 starving kids.

    • ...

      Or build a sweet tree fort

    • LAVMDMV

      or take that 5000 and get 4761 dollar meal mcchickens 🙂 enough for alot more kids

    • MylesofStyles

      You could feed 1000 starving kids indeed. One meal each. To tease the shit out of them. Before they go back to starving. You must be running for government.

      • Dr_StrangePants

        still more Efficient then a one-time payment of $5000 to ONE guy…for one pound of food.

        • MylesofStyles

          I highly doubt ONE guy was involved in the making of a $5000 Fleurburger. Unless the ONE guys raises Kobe beef from birth, has his own geese from which to extract the foie gras, cultivates his own truffles, bakes his own brioche truffle bun, has his own Bordeaux winery from which he provides a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1995 (which comes with the burger), and a stemware company in Italy that provides the Inchendorf Brunello glass in which it is served (and mailed to your home with a certificate).

          This ONE guy is ONE busy motherfucker.

          • Dr_StrangePants

            What I meant was One Man EATING
            …but sorry for the confusion with the word "to"

    • nyannyan

      That's true, but only partially. In the end you have paid a good hundred people (the cook, the local workers, the ingredient producers, the transporters, …) that are feeding even more kids. Since we have circular money flow the only bad thing to do is not to buy such a burger if you have enough money to pay for it with ease. Just sitting on the money in your pocket (if you have it) would let possibly 1000 kids starve.

      Always not so easy as it seams to be.

      • Woop

        Seems. Stay in school

      • Donkey

        Reading 1/2 of that made my head hurt. If I was a millionare I'd buy One of those giant ass burgers for every tribe in Ethiopia!

      • tifa

        Not if you go to burger king or any burger chain and buy $1 menu burgers. More than enough money left to buy even more burgers for starving children. And even if they needed help to pass them out, there is such a thing as volunteers. Or plenty of students that need volunteer hours but either way good ppl are out there who are willing to do something good at any given day.

        • MylesofStyles

          How is feeding children $1 Burger King menu burgers considered helping them?

      • DubleDex

        They chain of production you just mentioned is not making any additional money on the sale of one of these expensive burgers. They are getting paid the same crap wages whether they are producing beef for McDonald's or some SassyPants exclusive restaurant (there may be some difference if a restaurant is specifically buying beef from a specialty producer who charges more for their beef, but even then the difference probably isn't that significant). The restaurant, and therefore the owner and perhaps chef, are pocketing all the additional "expense" of this burger. Don't think for a second that by eating higher priced food your in any way contributing extra money to the regular layman workforce.

    • asdf

      I think the price tag isn't so much the burger, but the bottle of loius 16th or whatever ridiculous booze that comes with it, it was on one of the 100 different food shows on tv, and they went over all the ingredients. The booze is 95% of the price.

  • This guy

    I'm coming to the realization that I no longer want to click on bob's posts. Booooring

    • inflames55

      Totally, because Redheads are sooooooooooooooooo boring.

    • JdJ

      Do what I do. Read the FRICKEN headline before determining if you want to look through the post or not.

      IE. I don't care for cats, so I skip CAT SATURDAY. Then I don't have to complain about anything!

  • Nevenem

    i feel poor…

  • D

    I like mine with lettuce and tomato, heinz 57 and french fried potatoes. And that’s actually pretty cheap.

  • http://www.thechive.com S_Giacomazzi

    Some people just have too much money, and it's kind of sad that many of them could so casually that sort of money on a burger. And then when asked if they could help the disadvantaged, they decline without even considering the question.

    • Scott

      "…so casually that sort of money…? What the frakk does THAT mean? What ever happened to proof-reading???

    • MikeOverHere

      Someone's never talked to a rich person before. Guess what, you jealous loser. We spend $100 on a burger and we do more in one day to help the less fortunate that will do in your whole life. Instead of being sanctimonious for no reason, why don't you get your crap together, and start working to help others. Whining on the internet doesn't count.

      • professor

        why dont you go fist yourself ….

      • HeyMike

        Less fortunate? Luck doesn't make a person rich; hard fucking work does.

      • http://www.thechive.com S_Giacomazzi

        I have talked to a rich person (or people) before, my uncles. I'm not going to bother to explain what they do and shit, but even if I did it what way is that relevant?

    • chuck

      Go back to Italy if you want to complain about the wealthy and get your handout there. If you got off your ass right now and got a job and took what you make from that job (don't spend it on high rent, nice shoes, cars, ect.) and invest it back in yourself in 4 years you can have a small company. You can then quit that job that made your way and enjoy the success of being a business owner. After a few more years of good work, hire on a manager and let him be your protoge and when you trust the guy you can only work 2-3 days a week while you business continues to thrive and you are almost making money for nothing. You weak minded people make me sick. It is so easy to be successful in this country. I am 27 and have my own company that I built on my own with 6 happy people working with me who are able to care for their wives and children. It only took me 2 years to do that, but im a go getter. Im not a lazy complainer. Grow up and make something of yourself. You can start today. Thank You!

      • loves sammiches

        Hey, Chuck. I need a job. Hook a brother up.

        • chuck

          Do you have a college degree in anything related to oil and gas? I really need another mapper who knows arcGIS.

          • loves sammiches

            No degree. I'm a drafter/ designer with 10+ years experience in the oil industry though.

      • Dr_StrangePants

        I think that we Can ALL agree that This Hamburger Post Escalated Quickly

      • socalmarti

        I'm hard working, bi-lingual, multi-tasker. I need a job with guranteed upward mobility.I also have a college degree and years of management experience. Want to hire me?

      • http://www.thechive.com S_Giacomazzi

        Firstly, I'm from Australia, born in Australia.
        Secondly, I'm not complaining about how I have it bad, I am simply giving a voice to those who don't because many of which are too poor to even afford a computer and internet.
        Thirdly, I am too young to start a business and what not. I am only a student
        Fourthly, you're welcome. But I am not sure what for?

        • chuck

          it is never too late to start a business. Even in college. One of my best friends in college got his real estate license and sold homes on the weekend in college. His mom only paid for one semester for him and the rest he made on his own, very easily I must say. I worked through college too. I worked at an Ice plant (nice in the summer, terror in the winter) to make money on the side. It didnt pay for college but at least I was self supportive. I was a double major too (physics and geology). So dont tell me it is not possible. We need our generation to put on their boots and quit relying on their parents. All it could take is for you to go out and get employed and Im sure your friends will be jealous of all the money you are making and want to follow suit. Its that easy.
          You are welcome

          • http://www.thechive.com S_Giacomazzi

            Thanks for the advice but when I said I was a student I meant that I was in High School (Senior School, as you might know it), so beginning a business still isn't a possibility, even if it was, I probably wouldn't because I plan to serve in the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force), and thus starting a business isn't necessary.
            Also, my mother, uncle and other uncle all run their own respective businesses so I know what you mean. 🙂

  • Art

    I tried all these burgers and my poop wasnt gold. I want my money back.

    • bmak

      Free tip, eat a bag of black licorice. You'll shit bright green. I mean, hopefully, you will, otherwise, there is something seriously wrong with me.

    • John Kenny

      Aw man you made me laugh when all this article did was make me cry. Thank you. 🙂

  • justanothersquaddie

    Pennies…
    #10

    • Notknowing

      At that price? It better be one tasty mutha-fuckin burger.

  • Jason

    They just pile some caviar, truffle et cetera on an ordinary good dish to make it expensive and people buy it for the price regardless what it tastes like.

    • Kyle

      the real cost is the bottle of wine that comes with it…

    • Notknowing

      Remember the artist who shit in a can and called it art? He sold it for thousands…why? Because he could.

      • Jason

        I don't blame the one who makes it, if I could make a lot of money doing hardly anything I certainly would. I just think it's weird people pay monstrous amounts of money for something that can be bought for far less.

  • chief

    but why?!

  • Florian

    The château Petrus should be at least included in the 5000$ of the #10!

    • shiby

      It is. In fact, the bottle accounts for $4800 of the meal. The burger is kobe beef, foie gras, and black truffles.

      • _Moose_

        You also get to keep the Ichendorf Brunello stemware.

  • Vandelay

    If you ingest one of these burgers and I find you, I will pull your man card and sex your mom in front of you

    • Sick350Z

      Haha That sounds about right.

  • brandon

    I can make a better burger on my grill at home for less then 20 bucks and feed 4 people

    • MikeOverHere

      LOL! You wish. You can make a burger that's the best tasting your poor ass will ever eat, maybe.

      • JdJ

        MikeOverTHere…you probably only think something is good if someone else tells you its good, yeah?

        • Woop

          Dont be jealous. You sound it.

      • The_Dood

        The best steak, burger, ribs, etc. I've ever had were cooked/smoked by my dad. If you know how to cook, you don't have to pay someone else to do it for you. His motto, "Just because you have to eat, doesn't mean it doesn't have to be delicious.
        I'm still refining my skills, but one day…

        • Notknowing

          Well said, Dood.

  • AzPunk

    The best burger in the world only costs $3 at In-N-Out…

    • Dwreck

      U sir are high in n out blows dogs for quarters idk what it is w people n that place the meats extra thin and blan the fries taste like assholes n mayonnaise and they don't even have onion rings and that sir is just about un American as u can get. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have bacon

      • JdJ

        you know what assholes taste like?

      • The_Dood

        Speaking of onion rings… Am I the only one that thinks that Sonic's onion rings have a very vanilla-y flavor to them?

        • Billy

          I worked at sonic as my first job when I was 15. There is ice cream in the onion ring batter :). I didnt know until I was asked to help make it one day.

          • The_Dood

            Thank you! I've been wondering that for years.

    • Notknowing

      We don't have In-N-Out here in Canada. From what I hear, it sounds quite tasty.

    • socalmarti

      Double Double animal style!!!!! Nom nom!!!!!

      • Yum Yum Roll

        Fuckin' A. Had a Double Double animal style protein style last night for dinner. Delicious.

    • Squirrely 24

      Double Double Animal Style with chopped chillis please…..

  • Mr. Somewhat Awesome

    Jack in the box does it great….especially when I've had more than a few drinks.

  • The_Jackyl

    #9 unless that burger is from japan that person is getting extra ripped off since kobe beef cannot be exported from japan and even in japan its extremely rare..you can go to the supermarket grab some burgers and call it kobe since the name holds no regulations

    • largemophone

      Roger out to that.
      Besides, even if it were Kobe beef, and it most likely isn't, the whole point of Kobe beef is the marbling of the fat.
      When you grind it all up and throw it on a grill, you'd be losing so much of that flavour anyway. So what's the point?
      Seems like it would be a giant waste of good meat and good money.

    • Big Poppa

      i thought it was made from left over ass meat from Kobe Bryant- Kobe gets served every day

      • Woop

        Hahah.

    • NateBallz

      the burger is only like 70 bucks, it's the bottle of dom rose that makes the meal $700 – it is served to you by your very own butler which is pretty cool

  • foobie

    At least the chef who created the douche burger created it as a joke, putting all the douchiest things rich people eat.

  • Sir Boobsalot

    and yet none of these burgers (with exeption of the burger the size of a car tyre) impress me.

    Seriously? Caviar on a fucking burger? None of them even look that appealing either!

    • Big Poppa

      I'd like to see Adam try that one

  • STUPID BURGER

    WAT A WAIST OF FUCKEN MONEY!!!!…THEY CAN STICK THEM UP THERE ASSHOLES!!!

    • chiver

      spelling police…where do you start with this one?

      • Spelling Police

        With the very first word

  • quailman8907

    no thanks.

  • voodoo285

    Normally im all for this sort of stuff but that was just crazy. I mean sweet jebus people that amount of money for a burger. Plus to completely fail at topping it off just not enough Bacon.

    Its a crime against Chivemanity to not have bacon porn.

    Is there bacon porn….. Would it be as good as or better than regular porn?

    Tough call?

    • The_Dood

      Rule 34. It's out there somewhere.

    • ttodd23

      if there were bacon porn it would not only be better than regular porn. it would be so fantasticly mouth watering that you would drown in your own saliva.

  • Crushbent

    ill stick with the six dollar at hardee's, thank you.

  • JdJ

    BEST BURGER I'VE EVER HAD:

    Made at home: beef patty on the grill, mayo on the bun, and kim chee to top it off. All I need for a satisfactory burger.

    • Verbal_Kint

      Wanna try something insane? De-bone and grind some short-ribs and make a burger out of that. You'll be ruined for life..
