    Speaking as English an Englishman as you can get… Give me egg on my burger.

    it’s pointless greenery (which just goes slimey) that bugs me.

    The fried egg topping actually dates to 1891 as a German variation. And if Joel wants an English hamburger, he’ll need to be more specific — the West Midlands and the Northeast prefer them batter-dipped and deep-fried. Of course, he may just want it with onions and brown sauce — what we call “steak sauce” — the way most of England takes it.

    Now, now, English food has evolved well past boiling everything. Blumenthal, Oliver, and Ramsey are among the best chefs in the world.

    I don’t get the line about boiling.

    Also, not even lettuce or tomato, Joel? Don’t you want the toppings that let you pretend you’re being a little bit healthy.

    Also again, the original burgers had eggs before they had buns.

    Joel, cease being a poop (nearly impossible for you, admitted, but still). Eggs are not only for breakfast (and don’t even feature in breakfasts much outside of the western world). Just order your plain burger and leave others alone.

    I’m with maarvarq. It’s only a short step from eating a burger with a knife and fork to eating pizza with a knife and fork, and that way lies MADNESS.

    I actually usually get the egg on the hamburger because, for some reason, it helps prevent me from getting heartburn. Never figured out why that is.
