DailyDirt: I'll Gladly Pay You Tuesday...

Lots of people seem to have an unhealthy obsession with hamburgers. So much so, that they're willing to pay incredible sums of cash for a single meal that includes cooked ground meat between two pieces of bread. Spending hundreds -- or thousands -- of dollars on a burger might not sound like a very happy meal to everyone, but there are more than a few places willing to serve up some expensive burgers for paying customers. Here are just a few examples.
- The first burger grown in a lab probably won't taste all that good, but it'll cost about $330,000 to create a synthetic hamburger from cow stem cells. The first lab-grown burger should be ready to eat sometime in October, and the project is being funded by an anonymous donor. [url]
- If you hit the jackpot in Vegas, there's a ton of ways to spend too much money on food out there -- and one option is a $5,000 burger at Fleur de Lys. In addition to Kobe beef, foie gras and truffles, you'll also get some wine and the bragging rights. [url]
- The Guinness Book of World Records named 'Le Burger Extravagant' from Serendipity 3 in NYC as the world's most expensive burger, priced at $295. Apparently, the folks at Guinness have never been to Vegas (or they abide by the "stays in Vegas" rule very strictly), but they also seem to have missed the $666 Douche Burger sold out of a food truck in NYC, too.
