    Well, fried meat. You know how fast food is.

    Though since it’s Dan Piraro, it could easily be “meat in general will kill you”.

    And at most of those places, it’s not just the fried red meat,
    it’s also the quantities and extras. So, he’s probably ordering
    the burger with a pound of meat, several slices of cheese, some
    bacon, fried triple-decker roll, and mayonaise. With a diet Coke.

    Of course, it could be merely referring to how the cow died.

    “How Now Brown Cow” used to hear that a lot.

    Maybe the restaurant name is supposed to mean that you get to choose how the cow died, and the customer wants to be humane?

    If cooked anything other than “well done,” could be an e coli burger. That could kill you.

    That is plausibly a real menu item at the Heart Attack Grill.

    Considering the “How now, brown cow?” reference in the name of the place, I thought it was referring to the death of the cow being eaten.

    Uncooked/undercooked meat isn’t so healthy, either.

    And “Death by Chocolate” for dessert, I presume?

    he is a vegetarian I think.So its a mid of mild Peta type comic .Not one of his best.

  11. R2T Nov 29th 2012 at 12:11 pm 11

    I typoed that well ;p I meant to type “its a mild Peta type of comment in the comic “

  12. NitricAcid Nov 29th 2012 at 01:14 pm 12

    Mild PETA, or mild p.i.t.a.?

  13. pepperjackcandy Nov 29th 2012 at 02:44 pm 13

    I thought it was a reference to the death of the cow, too.

  14. PeterW Nov 29th 2012 at 03:23 pm 14

    I really think it’s more about how unhealthy fast food is than animal rights in this case. Because everybody knows hamburgers are bad for you.

  15. Keera Nov 29th 2012 at 07:23 pm 15

    I read that as if the cow had had assisted suicide, like a couple of others have suggested.

  16. Jeff S. Nov 29th 2012 at 08:41 pm 16

    I’m with PeterW and the others. It is just another “fast food is bad for you” joke. The meal just has a slightly more accurate “cutesy” name.

  17. Lola Nov 29th 2012 at 09:15 pm 17

    I thought it was in the vein of grass-fed or free-range. He want his beef to come from an animal that was opting to die, albeit with help.

  18. Arthur Nov 29th 2012 at 09:23 pm 18

    Since no one else has mentioned it, I guess it’s up to me to
    allude to the dish of the day.

    Lola,

    In The Hittchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy, the dish of the day is a creature that’s been specially bred to want to be eaten.

    And they talk. “Good evening! I will be your dinner tonight.”

  22. Rainey Dec 1st 2012 at 06:00 am 22

    Allow me to call you peoples’ attention to the size of the styrofoam cartons behind the order taker. Assuming these are filled to the brim, that would be a large portion. Need I tell anybody the consequences of overeating? My point would be further augmented if they all made up one order. Has anybody seen the movie “Seven”?

  23. Kamino Neko Dec 1st 2012 at 11:12 am 23

    Those are pretty standard clamshells. And, no, they don’t actually hold a huge amount of food. I used to work at a place that used them. They held a pretty good portion, but the only reason the top’s the same as the bottom is to make sure there’s room for odd shaped things.

    Some places are offering enormous burgers with names like “Heart Attack On A Plate”
