Durgers!

After this epic Bombcast, I have started to casually use the term "durgers" to some rather alarmed looking people. How can we help this incredible wrinkle in the English language catch on?

I don't have hotdogs nearly often enough but whenever I can I'm using durgers aswell. The more people saying it the more likely it'll start to spread!

Another neat fact: the Mega64 alias of Hamburger is Hambog.
Get it?

It's probably gonna risk alienating myself from people at school, but it'll be worth it just to say "durgers".

We are not liked so much...

I Just had a bbq with some friends, I reckon i have gotten the wrong end of the stick thinking durgers where hot dogs and burgers together....
I would like to add that it was awesome.... maybe you could say it was a HamDurger....

I am currently going to listen to the complete podcast so I can hear this reference after having watched the last 30 seconds of the SCII video review.

@eternalmatt: the mega64 podcast is where the original reference came from

Speaking of durgers, well kinda, that was one good looking burger next to that durger at the end of the Starcraft II video review. Is that from a burger place somewhere?

Every now and again, I think of durgers - and am happy for this thread so I can listen to the bombcast where i first heard of them on demand.  Why are durgers tastier than hot dogs when they are the same thing?  No one knows.
