Arby’s Roast Burger

Last week Arby’s started promoting its latest wacky invention, the Roast Burger. Before I saw the actual food item in question I thought the world had gone upside down. Arby’s selling burgers? That’s like Wendy’s selling roast beef! (Which they did, in a Chicago trial run.)

But then I saw what it was and was surprised. It’s just a roast beef sandwich – same as ever – dressed like a burger. Not Mayor McCheese style, but with bacon and cheese, or random saucy sauce… things like that.

Another similar thing I saw: a big fish stick on a hot dog bun. Yeah, I know.

Can we just let these foods be what they are? Please? Thanks.

Best late night food ever:

Tamale on a bun with chili and cheese from Joe’s Hot Dogs in Joliet, Illinois

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
