Hey Arby's...Leave The Burgers To The Experts!

|OK...first let me start by saying that I am a huge fan of pretty much everything Arby's does. I have enjoyed many of their tasty sandwiches in my time. But, something they have recently done has been eating at me for quite awhile. |
I'm sure all of you have seen the commercials for what Arby's is calling the "Roast Burger." It's a very tasty looking (and tasting) sandwich that they have come out with to offer as a healthier alternative to a standard burger. I have no problem with the concept. As much as I'd love to, you can't eat a burger everyday. The problem I have is with the name!
Many of you may remember my article "It's not a burger!" from a few months ago. I have a BIG issue with things being called burgers that aren't. And the "Roast Burger" isn't even close to being a burger. OK, it has meat, cheese, lettuce, and it's on a bun, BUT IT'S NOT A BURGER!! It's the same as everything else Arby's serves. A roast beef sandwich and nothing more. Websters defines a burger as such:
A sandwich consisting of a bun, a cooked beef patty, and often other ingredients such as cheese, onion slices, lettuce, or condiments. Often used in combination: a cheeseburger.
So Arby's...keep making your mouth-watering sandwiches and curly fries, but leave the burger making to McDonalds.
