Google Turned Controversial Cheeseburger Emoji Into Real Burgers

After serving up what could be decidedly un-American cheeseburger emoji, Google office in Seattle has reportedly served an edible version to its employees. Apparently, it was very aptly called “Android burger” and it was exactly as you have expected, a slide of cheese between the beef patty and bottom bun. Clearly, that is not how a cheeseburger should be and I am speaking a huge burger fan. Even mass-marketed burger joints like MacDonald’s also know how it should be done.
