There's a fault line by Meers,
and I blame the burgers.
Longhorn lean,
but big as a dinner plate
and weighty enough to shift tectonics,
this is no hold it in one hand Sonic special.
This is an unbutton the top button,
gastronomical event.
Finish one?
I can't.
But I'm willing to richter on and keep trying.
You know, for the advancement of science.

A small tribute to the legendary Meers burger for Karin's prompt at Real Toads.

Oh, I love it!! And just the laugh I needed this evening!! Thanks, MZ! Have a great new week -- but be careful with the Meers burger, huh??

Outlawyer said...

It sounds like Meers is more--this works very well with the fault line- but no fault here. Thanks, MZ, for participating. k.

LOL, I love it, especially the closing line.

Smiling here all the read, Mom Zee. Mrs. Jim and I split one of these (make sure no 'plate charge').
I like your street picture find also.

O you Okies. Busting a gut in the name of progressing all the way through a meal. For each Richter, a ripper!

Björn Rudberg said...

Ha... sounds like a treat, just don't try to often or you might cause rifts just by walking :-)

R.K. Garon said...

Been at that point as I got older... had to "finish what was on my plate." now I order off the children's menu :-)

Marian said...

Richter on! Love that!

Fireblossom said...

I want one!

Susie Clevenger said...

Now I am hungry. I would do my part for science also.

This was a change from the "pi" that people were eating and writing! :)

Heh - for science!
