This will be a fantastic project for me to not work on this weekend, or ever.

I want this so bad, but I know I would wake up hungry every day.
It definitely needs a coordinating wardrobe that's shaped like a bag of potato chips.
A floor lamp that's a bottle of ketchup or vinegar.
Giant paper napkin for a throw rug.

The circa 1996 web page layout is refreshing & wonderful. Also the green sheet for lettuce. Most delightful Mefi post we've seen in ages.

Maybe I'm just hypercritical, but that looks closer to a Sloppy Joe than a burger. Fit those sheets!

I'm nut sure I'd want sesame seeds on my bed.

Not something I'd want in my own bedroom, but what a great project. Do they make a tofu version for the vegetarians?

Oddly enough, when I was a kid my Dad wouldn't let me eat my hamburger unless a quarter would bounce off of the top bun.

I need a bed shaped like a burger like I need a burger shaped like a bed.

You laugh, because you think I'm joking. But I've been traveling the country, pitching my idea that food should resemble furniture. Traditional food forms usually follow the intrinsic structural lines of the food source; "Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic" still looks like a (part of) a chicken. My brilliant insight is that food forms are now completely malleable. Protein can be pulverized and reconstituted in innumerable forms. So my brilliant insight about the future of food consumption is that we will eat foods that resemble objects of other significance. Within two decades we will decide how to eat not based on flavor, cost, freshness, or any other of the current criteria. Within two decades we will eat foods that have particularly favorable forms. I'd like my dinner to resemble my favorite celebrity! I'd like my dinner to come with an array of magical superpowers! My dinner should explode with significance! And ordinary furniture is significant; in the future people will go out to dine at restaurants because these restaurants serve meals shaped (and perhaps flavored) to resemble significant moments of architectural and interior design. You'll have a sweet potato shaped like an Eames chair. Your wine will come from Fallingwater. Every bite you eat will be a vote for a particular aesthetic style.

Metafilter : there's a good deal of clever puns on gherkins and "eating out", plus a spirited turn by the Dean of Burgers and some decent T&A

I still like the Always Sunny comparison. I could see them revisiting the idea and using this design in a later season. Reality TV shows taking one element of a person's identity and using it to define their home/vehicle will never die. See: the 4Chan Sup Dog meme.

Ok... I just came up with every fanboy's dream bed. Take the Tohn Tohn from Empire Strikes Back and design it into a bed. Who wouldn't want one of those?

You know when you take a cat, lay it out on a blanket, and then roll it up so only it's face is sticking out the end, and you call it a "kitty burrito" and make fun until it wriggles free? I don't think that this hamburger has sufficient restraint abilities to make it really useful as a pet mocking device.

Maybe if they made some sort of hot-dog futon, or something for puppies, I might get more interested.

Man, hazel's Apartment Therapy link is... pretentious.

Sure, it's not something 99.9% of us want in our own homes...but we're glad someone made it for the sake of making something so amusing.


Well, snooty snoot snoot, Mister Snooty Pants.

no offense meant to you, hazel. I agree with your assessment of the dude's face.
