Most of the japanese signs are literal translations, thus the funny way of reading them.

Enigma: Those two signs are not designed for this list to be viewed as is. Look at them with more kairilike thoughts, and you'll see why they're on the list.

And yet no one will open up a Ninja Burger. Someone suggested it to the Ninja Burger site (in jest?), but a real Ninja Burger would ROCK! Think about going up to a counter and getting served by a ninja. Hehe, I can see the advertisement for one now..."Ninja burger, where you get your order in thirty minutes or less, or we commit seppuku."*



* offer only applies if you work for the scandalous dogs of Samurai Burger.

Going a bit out of the oriental stuff (but still a burger), I like those kinds of burgers like they do in Philadelphia. If you don't get oil marks on the 'paper bag' which wrapes the burger, it's not an authentic burger. :)

I don't know because I don't live there. I heard this on that series called Fresh Prince. Besides, I don't believe only Carl's Jr. will have burgers like that in whole USA... sometimes you can find that in any low-level fast-food out there. ;)

Death Metal: I know they aren't the only ones, but Carl's Jr. consistently has greasy burgers that most likely fill up your weekly fat content in one burger. :p
