Where's The Beef

Burger Kings in London are selling a $200 hamburger. "Premium, prohibitively priced, Japanese-style Wagyu, flame-grilled, garnished with Italian truffles, Spanish cured ham, aged balsamic vinegar, Champagne onions and popped onto a saffron- and truffle-dusted bun." Proceeds go to charity, but some are up in arms. "To come out with this kind of hugely expensive and over-the-top burger and to have 80 million people going to bed hungry every night is just to shoot yourself in the foot," an anti-hunger activist said. Why does its being a burger make this more offensive to people? After all, folks spend far more than this on fancy dinners - and not for charity, either. However, if we're shelling out that kind of cash, it's not to chow down in the neon confines of a Burger King. [CBS]
