@c1337us:

Civil War?

Those burgers have nothing on the Baconator.

One-third pound not three pounds. You'd fail public speaking with all of those "umms", also.
 
I had it a while ago. It's way too expensive and a Whopper or Jack in the Box burgers would be better. I'd also give it a 2.

@ez123:  yeah, I noticed while editing that the "uhms" are out of control, will try better next time. 
 
@Atomasist: I already did the baconator but I lost the video... I think that was a 4/5...

God, why the fuck did you put a "<----- Follow" in your post. Don't start that shit.

@natetodemax: ...wtf?
#11 Posted by TurboMan (7506 posts) -
@Vinchenzo:  
fine. Taken out for tackiness.
#12 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

I watched it and let me tell you... I'm so glad I stopped getting fast food. Well, if you don't count Domino's on Sunday...

Civil War? What have I missed?
 
Anyway, man, I'm kind of bummed this is a video review since my speakers aren't working. I was looking forward to your review. Ah well, maybe some other time. Thanks for keeping the burger spirit alive, my good man!

Well, when it comes to reviewing burgers, this man looks like he's the right man for the job.

I watched until you started eating it.  That's just disgusting, nobody wants to watch somebody eat any sort of food item unless it involves 2 women: whipped cream, and strawberries.  In the future something where you take the first bite and then comment on initial thoughts then finish it off film and give your review would be better.

Dude, it's like 50 cents more than a Big Mac and twice the burger.  The deluxe is great.  Also, the Whopper is a smaller sandwich.  You need to add cheese and make it a double to compare, which makes it more expensive than a third pounder.

If I took it out, then the audience would not be able to see visual proof that I ate the entire sandwich, and my review would be questionable. In order for the audience to have trust in the reviewer, they need to know that the reviewer has experienced the product at the fullest of whatever the product has to offer. You must watch me eat the burger to establish that trust.

@TurboMan: Need to see you shit it out as well as you may have thrown it back up after filming.

QFT following your logic
#20 Posted by ez123 (1956 posts) -
@MAN_FLANNEL:   The burger it's supposed to be competing with(Hardee's Thickburger) is a lot bigger and I'm fairly sure that a regular ass Whopper is similar in size.   It doesn't taste as good as either of those so it doesn't really matter.
#21 Posted by TurboMan (7506 posts) -
@ninjakiller:  
 
No need. I only review based on taste and satisfaction granted to me from the burger. 
  
My Philosophical Ideas towards burger reviews still stand.
#22 Posted by ImperiousRix (2963 posts) -

I actually like this burger a lot; that's saying something when I don't really like McDonald's OR mushrooms.  The beef's decent on it for a fast food joint, and the mayo and swiss is a pretty good combination.

#23 Posted by masternater27 (918 posts) -

I hated it.  I only rarely like mushrooms, and the one I had had possibly the most disgusting mushrooms ever picked.

#24 Posted by masternater27 (918 posts) -

Also, don't listen to these haters, watching you eat the burger adds a realness to the review, though maybe I'd fast forward through you eating next time?

As a dude who has a Baconator as his profile picture I obviously agree with you.

@TurboMan: THE BURGER REVIEWS ARE BACK! TurboMan! You sir, are my hero!
#30 Posted by Geno (6477 posts) -

Yeah! I love these. The reviews I mean, not the burger. 

#31 Posted by Hot_Karl (3309 posts) -

Yay! Spoon! Not Yay! Rubber burgers from McDonalds!

#32 Posted by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

The burger is only good once. Every time after that, you will wish you were eating something else.
