Season 6, Epsiode 12

The teriaki place around the corner from my office also has burgers and chicken sandwiches on the menu. You can get a double burger or double chicken if you want, too. But there's no mix-and-match marriage of the two ideas.

That seriously bugs, but I hit a language barrier each time I customize my order, so it took about six months for me to get the nerve up to ask...
    self:
    Can I get a double chicken burger, half beef?

    Counter-person:
    No.
I can't transcribe the span of awkwardness which followed, as it was largely hand gestures, but I was eventually able to convey what I wanted.

Kinda wish I hadn't.

Ah well. Another crushed fantasy...

The beef/chicken combo needs to be on menus everywhere. I "discovered" it one time when I noticed a White Castle "chicken ring" is the same size as a White Castle "hamburger". Insert processed chicken into processed beef sandwich and, ZOWIE, good stuff!

So, yeah!

Mine wasn't processed chicken. Perhaps that's where I went wrong.

You restore my hope in the combination. Will try again elsewhere!
