YOU’LL FLIP OVER THIS
Take a moment to digest this groundbreaking news – you’ve been eating burgers all wrong. According to life hacks expert Grant Thompson – who likes to be known as the King of Random – the best way to eat your burger is upside down. And before you start doing handstands and giving yourselves indigestion, we’re not talking about you, we’re talking about the burger. See, usually the top part of a hamburger bun is wider, thicker and sturdier than the bottom half – plus it has less to contend with as it sits on top of the filling rather than underneath it all. With particularly saucy burgers, the bottom half of the bun can end up getting soggy and falling apart, having soaked up all the juicy goodness. If you turn it upside down, your filling will start to soak into the top half of the bun rather than out the sides, making it much less likely you’ll suffer any unwanted spillages. The flip also means your lettuce will now be at the bottom of the burger, transforming it into a barrier for dripping juices. Plus the soaked bottom part of the bun will be on the top, meaning it won’t break up mid-munch and fall into your lap. Genius.
