Chicago burger garnished with communion wafer

CHICAGO (AP) — A Chicago restaurant has cooked up a controversial burger of the month for October, garnishing it with an unconsecrated communion wafer and a red wine reduction sauce.

Kuma's Corner, a foodie destination with just a few tables, names its hamburgers after heavy metal bands. For October, the restaurant chose to name the burger after the Swedish band Ghost. Members of the band dress in religious robes and wear skeleton face makeup.

It's in poor taste, said Jeff Young of New Orleans who runs the blog Catholic Foodie.

"It's not, for us, the Eucharist," Young said. "However this wafer is a symbol. There's a cross on it. It's like taking a flag and burning a flag."

Luke Tobias, Kuma's Corner director of operations, said the restaurant never wanted to offend anyone. He said reaction has been a "mixed bag," but more positive than negative.

"There are people who are offended by it, but we're delighted to see that generally people seem to have a sense of humor," Tobias said.

The restaurant, which often plays loud heavy metal music, is a fan of Ghost, Tobias said. Young said he realizes that and knows Kuma's Corner didn't intentionally want to make anyone mad.

"The Ghost" burger is selling well, Tobias said, because customers are curious about it.

"Hopefully people will have a good time with it — that's certainly what we're trying to do," Tobias said.

It's clever I guess but the only thing that would be less appetizing to me than the communion wafer is an altar boy taking a shit right on top of the burger patty. I hated having to scrape that thing off the roof of my mouth with my tongue when I was a kid. I'd rather eat actual decomposed chunks of Christ.

Dear little lambs, pssssst! It's not the actual "body of Christ". Channel your silly outrage towards something useful. Start with politicians.

I've seen this story while at the gym the past two days and I automatically didn't pay attention to it because I thought it was a story about the place winning a best burger award... after reading this thread it seems I was wrong.

I'm stealing that one. I'm sure I'll find a situation to use it in eventually.

The way I've always seen it done was the priest puts the magical Jesus whammy on the wafers right before he doles them out. He goes through the little voodoo ritual of ringing the bells and saying the magic words, "Hocus pocus Baby Geezos alakazam!" and presto changeo they go from Saltines to Soylent Jesus.

Magic!

Nope, not until after the transsubstantiation. It's not even blessed yet.
Fuck they are basically these:
only sans candy balls...Ask any priest..the altar boys have the candy balls.

Why put a piece of cardboard on a burger?
Well, it's a long story, but the gist of it is that it pisses off the Jeebus camp, so the media jumps on it, so all the tourists make it a point to visit this joint and order it, so Luke Tobias gets to buy himself an affordably priced but flashy looking new sportscar, which then impresses some drunk broad at a party, and then Luke gets to cum on her face. The End.

Fornicating sinner! Ye shall be banished to heck; forever!
Well the past three funerals have been the whole full mass thing... and nope did not take communion as I would be a total hypocrite.

At least they are not in Latin anymore... went my aunt's wedding in Switzerland in the mid 70's. The service was held in a monastery half way up a mountain... but was in half kraut and half Latin and guess it was about an hour long... yeeesh.

Hmmm oh oh... just realized me and my chick are living in sin a we were not married in the eyes of Gawd... at least we Catholics have purgatory.

Wut no purgatory anymore... sweet.

Vatican II..just not all priests followed it....Mostly it was younger hipper priests. You also had the Virgin Mary..if you prayed to her alot...she snuck you in the back window according to the nuns...which is weird..because you would always have to say Hail Mary's out the wazzoo to repent for sins after confession. It was a scam.

Had last rights a few times...It forgives you of all your sins...I'd say that's a pass.
