The Luther Burger
What? WHAT? A bacon cheeseburger served on a Krispy Kreme donut bun? That has to be something invented on the internet. Please don’t let it be real.
Well, it turns out that it is a real thing.
Claim: The “Luther Burger,” a bacon cheeseburger served on a Krispy Kreme doughnut bun, is a real food named after R&B singer Luther Vandross.
I asked my Dad who Luther Vandross is. My Dad said, ‘Not “is,” but “was.”‘ He said Luther Vandross was a singer and that he died about 5 or 6 years ago. I checked this on Wikipedia and he died in 2005 of a heart attack. If it’s true that this Krispy Kreme burger was his favorite then this could be the second music-related burger death. (The first was Elvis… duh!)
I think it might be a good idea if singers stopped eating burgers… just in case!
