Slater’s 50/50Open wide and salute the flag!

What goes better with bland seedless watermelon and a sulfuric whiff of fireworks than The ’Merica Burger, a super-gross concoction made almost completely of bacon? SoCal chain Slater’s 50/50 is offering such a thing in honor of all that is American. In which case, our country is completely effed:

The 100% bacon patty is topped with a slice of bacon, a sunny-side up egg (no word on whether it’s cooked in bacon grease) a slice of bacon-infused cheddar cheese, bacon Thousand Island dressing, and it’s on a bacon-infused bun.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

As far as Slater’s disgusting burger creations go (the chain offered a Chili Cheese Frito Burger in 2011), at least you don’t have to sign a waiver to eat this one. Blech.

Those of us outside of Southern California will just have to console ourselves with the six bacon slices atop Carl Jr.’s new Super Bacon Cheeseburger. Tums, anyone?
