This morning I woke up with the intention for today to be just like any other day.
Have a cup of tea. Check news/world hasn’t imploded. Go to work.
You know, the norm.
How wrong I was. Twitter – of course, it had to be Twitter – struck me down. I should clarify, it wasn’t just Twitter as a whole, but this tweet in particular:
I think we need to have a discussion about how Google’s burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top pic.twitter.com/PgXmCkY3Yc

But it’s not just the cheese. It’s the lettuce.
Up until this moment in my life, I hadn’t thought very seriously about the stacking of ingredients on my burger, but thanks to Thomas Baekdal, I now am.
In case you’re thinking this is an over-reaction, which it definitely is not, there are millions of people who have been dumbfounded by said tweet.
More than two million people have engaged with it – sharing their case for the ideal anatomy of a burger.
Obviously, cheese must be on top of meat. But lettuce must be insulated by the tomato – so both are in the wrong.
