A properly prepared turd burger, also known as a shit sandwich in parts of rural Appalachia, is truly a wonderful culinary experience. The sandwich consists of three main parts: bread, turd and vegetables. A turd burger is often prepared at the workplace by the most senior employee (or the Office Smartass) who then subsequently informs all other employees that everyone is going to have to take a bite.
A standard turd burger can be made with any bread. However, extensive research has found that hoagie rolls, french bread, or hotdog buns work the best. Food researchers are currently studying the taste and longevity of using tortillas or pittas as alternative bread choices.
As you may or may not know, turds - according to The Epicurean's Field Guide, the definitive text on the subject - are "known to have an unusually strong aroma, ...are highly prized for their unique texture and flavour". Therefore, it is advisable to purchase the finest and freshest turds from your local grocery or fine foods store. If top quality Grade-A turds are not available in your area, another great place to find turds is on CNN.
Standard vegetables for a turd burger include:
- iceberg lettuce
- tomato (Yes, I know it's technically a fruit. Fuck off, Alton Brown)
- red onion
- dog hair
- green pepper
- one Grade-A turd
While it is customary to serve the sandwich with vegetables, it is acceptable (according to purists) to serve a turd burger without any vegetable accompaniments.
