Bravo, KFC Philippines: Cheese On Top of The Burger Bun. Bravo.

Years back, we'll look to June 27 as the day when fast food broke free of its physical constraints: It's now totally cool to melt cheese in illogical places. I know, I know this has nothing to do Texas. It's not even on the same continent (KFC Philippines), but this was just too good to pass up. I mean look at that thing. It's so precisely absurd. And there's so many questions!

1. How do you eat it without slicking your hands with translucent cheese shame? 2. Why does the description say "Original Recipe Chicken patty" when it is very, very clearly called the "Cheese Top Burger" 3. Where ELSE can we melt a slice of cheese? On the side of the drink cup? Maybe have cheese slices placed on our open palms, so when we eat the burger our hands naturally make a "grilled cheese"?

Over on Gawker, a commenter asks: "So it's basically the greasiest tartine ever invented?" It really looks that way. Bravo, KFC.
