Written By: saver on 01/11/08 at 10:06 pm

Have a burger in his honor......He was the founder of Carl's Jr. in Calif. which may have had a connection to Hardee's(same logo)..not sure how that worked-did he have a hand in Hardee's too?

"Enjoy your extra big-ass fries!"
"*bleep* you, I'm eating!"
  - A Carls Jr. vending machine from the future, in Idiocracy

I had a Six Dollar Burger(tm) when I heard the news.  They were arguably the first fast-food chain who marketed themselves on being unabashedly proud of what they were making.  Gotta give them credit for that.  It's what fast food's all about: high on calories, fat, and flavor.  It ain't healthy?  Fine.  Don't eat it every day.  But when you do eat that hamburger, eat the hell out of it.

That honor goes to FATBURGER.  I thought it was a joke until I actually saw the place!

So it was right here in California where he started his Carls Jr. franchise? Wow...that's amazing (for lack of a better word). He may have just passed on, but his legacy will live on for a long time.
