An-Burger! (TWSNB no. 11,137)

The ad-line reads "甘くて、ほかほか、チイーズ入り!", translating roughly into "Sweet, Hot, with Cheese!", which made me want to run right into the shop and scarf down a couple of these An-Burgers. A steamy mix of Anko (red bean paste) on a bed of margerine and topped with a slice of cheese, this burger is the winter offering from a major fast-food joint in Tokyo. It comes as a relief that every person of every nationality I've shown this photo to has had the same reaction. The An-Burger is the latest entry in "Things Which Should Never Be", where it will hang its head in shame next to pizza with corn on it (which I consider a crime against humanity).
