A “Double-Egg” WHAT?!!

…In The Sunday Times last weekend you could find Jeremy Clarkson fulminating about America’s authoritarianism and its taste for double-egg burgers. (He may have been on to something about the first but I’ve lived in the States a while now and never seen a double-egg burger. More’s the pity.)

Neither have I. Sounds revolting.

    Maybe he meant “double egg McMuffin”

  2. John says:

    The only place I’ve had a double egg burger was in Taipei. I thought it was a Chinese abomination.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Heck, I’ll try and make one this weekend, though. With nice runny yolks…yumyumyum.

    What country are you people living in? The authoritarian overlords at the internment camp where I’m kept with no civil rights force feeds us double egg burgers all the time.

  5. Dave E. says:

    The moron probably meant a sausage and egg muffin. Did you read his (Clarkson’s) whole piece? What a bunch of obnoxious and mean-spirited drivel.
    BTW-I mix in an egg when I use onion soup mix or other seasoning for meatloaf or burgers. Tastes great and if I’m going to have a coronary, it’s going to be a massive old-fashioned American one.

    I have had a single egg burger. Next time I’ll have to make it a double (always a good rule of thumb).

  7. I hadn’t until you mentioned it, Dave E. And thanks for nothing, because now I’m PISSED. The a$$hat BROKE the LAW in the Florida Panhandle ~ probably right here in Bangla Cola!!

    You need a permit to do everything in America. You even need a passport to buy a drink. But interestingly you don’t need one if you wish to rent some guns and some bullets. I needed a 50 cal (very big) machinegun. “No problem,” said the man at the shop. “But could you just sign this assuring us that the movie you’re making is not anti-Bush or anti-war.”

    Also, you do not need a permit if you want — as I did — to transport a dead cow on the roof of your car through the Florida panhandle. That’s because this is banned by a state law.

    BASTARD !!

  8. Think about that. Someone has gone to all the bother and expense of drawing up a law that means that at some point lots of people were moving dead cows about on their cars. It must have been popular. Fashionable even.

    A$$hat. And people in England have no such rules, obviously.
    *Do you know that in England it is illegal to be drunk and in charge of a cow?
    *In England it is illegal to sell most goods on a Sunday, (this law is mostly ignored), it is however legal to sell a carrot. It is also legal to sell it at any price and to give free gifts with it, such as anything else one might want to buy on a Sunday!
    *In England, it is also illegal for a boy under the age of ten to see a naked mannequin in a shop window!
    *It is compulsory for boys to have at least 2 hours longbow practice (in England), taught by their local vicar.
    *It is legal for an Englishman to shoot a Welshman with a longbow, provided the Englishman is in England and the Welshman is on the Welsh side of the border.
    And just so we don’t hammer the Panhandle unmercifully ~
    *It’s illegal to soak bread in a public urinal in New Jersey.
    *In Huberson, Maine, it is illegal to eat five potatoes in a meal without giving one to each of your pigs.

    I can still just dip it in quickly though, right?

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    I pledge to my fellow NJ citizens that I will introduce legislation to repeal this law my very first day in office if elected Governor.

  11. Bingley in ’09 !!

  12. Rob says:

    If you can get that long bow one passed, I’ll move to NJ.
    Bingley in 09!!

    Okay, finally found Clarkson’s article, thanks THS.
    Wow. I never expected such vitriol from him.

  14. He’s just a regular poophead, Mike. I can’t believe the BS in that piece and that he’s convinced he’s clever on top of it, the smug sh*t.

    Half the stuff Clarkson describes, likely enough, was utter fiction – NOBODY could be as much of a dithering blowhard with manhood issues as he is.
