Company Dares to Send National Hamburger Day Email Without Coupon

May 28th is National Hamburger Day and some restaurants decided to celebrate by giving you nothing. Not even 25¢ off.

Just an email in your inbox about all the free hamburgers you won't be getting today.

Even Papa John's and Del Taco are doing something to celebrate today, for Cripessake.

So why aren't entities that actually sell hamburgers doing the same?

We take our responsibility to blacklist and tear down these vile institutions very seriously.

Here are the restaurants who AREN'T giving you a free hamburger:

  • Five Guys (has a sweepstakes contest AKA 99.99% nothing)

  • Hardee's

  • Chili's

  • Metro Diner (gave a new menu... of FULL-PRICE BURGERS!!)

  • Pinky's Westside Grill

  • Bad Daddy's Burger Bar

  • Chicken Salad Chick

  • "Struggling" "Local" "Small Businesses"

  • Sushi Star

  • Valerie's Vegetarian Venue

The list goes on.


Chili's customers are accustomed to walking out with 3 appetizers, an entrée, and a share in the restaurant for $6. But today, on the Holiest of Hamburger Days, their only offering is $10 off... OF A $50 GIFT CARD!

I bet the gift card doesn't even have a picture of a hamburger on it.

Consumers express outrage at the audacity of Five Guys.

Hamburger Facts

The World's Largest Hamburger

The world’s largest hamburger, which was prepared in Carlton, Minnesota on September 2, 2012, weighed in at 2,014 pounds, but not even 1 lb. of that was spared to provide a couple of Hamburger Lovers with a free slider today.

So they can make a novelty 2,000 lb hamburger, but they can't give you a BOGO 50% off voucher.

These hamburger chefs are making a mockery of you.

Annual American Hamburger Consumption

A typical American horks down approximately 30 pounds of hamburgers a year. But how many of those came with a discount? Experts still speculate. But based on the way restaurants like Bert's Bougie Burgers handled National Hamburger Day today, probably not even one.

In Conclusion

On this one day celebrating our freedom to eat juicy beef stacked with cheese, lettuce, and tomato, some entities decided that, rather than open an email with a code for a half-price hamburger, Americans would prefer to be WISHED a happy hamburger day and spend $300 to eat a sandwich.


Got a problem? Think we aren’t a REAL news site like the “National Enquirer,” which STOLE our name? Think we’re just some satire/comedy writers from Charlotte, NC making some JOKE of a site like a lesser-known The Onion, Clickhole, or AboveAverage? Think we don’t FACT CHECK?? Well, you thought wrong.
