Blog Photo - Sonic puts edible logos on burgers for football fansThink you've done everything you need to do to prepare yourself for the upcoming NCAA football season? You have not. You have not eaten an onion ring-stuffed cheeseburger with your college team's logo baked onto the bun.

That image to the left is not a Photoshop job, that is an actual edible item of "food" being served at the Sonic hamburger restaurant chain in southern Louisiana. The logo on top is not a sticker, it is a food coloring concoction which can supposedly be eaten without major gastric consequences. 

Thus far, the football-inspired Ragin' Cajuns burger is available at Sonic restaurants only in the Acadiana area of Louisiana, and only for the University of Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns. If enough Ragin' Cajuns fans can keep one of these burgers down, though, expect the promotion to be expanded to other regions and college football fan bases.

Blog Photo - Sonic puts edible logos on burgers for football fans"Putting a school logo on a bun has never been done before, in the area or in any Sonic, so we’re excited to offer it on our menu," Sonic franchise owner Ted Kergan told The Independent Media Group. "It’s South Louisiana, it’s supposed to have a kick."

"A kick", indeed -- more like a kick to your lower intestine. The Ragin' Cajuns burger contains Tobasco-flavored mayonnaise, a layer of onion rings,  pepper jack cheese, and a side of Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning. Plus, of course, the curiously-colorful edible logo of ULL depicting a fleur de lis against a wall of flames. Maybe they ought to put that ULL logo on some diabetes medication as well.

Somehow, some vegetable matter sneaked onto that sandwich, too. Grilled onions, shredded lettuce, and two tomato slices are also served on a Ragin' Cajuns Burger.

The burger clocks in at a svelte 1,200 calories for just the sandwich. In Louisiana, 1,200 calories is probably considered a light snack. But that's before you get a side of onion rings to go with your onion ring burger.

This bizarre thing will be available at participating southern Louisiana Sonic restaurants through December 31, 2012. If you  want to know why this burger chain is called "Sonic", it probably has something to do with the sounds that come out of your rear end after you've eaten there.

the marketing point is the same as people putting advertising on cups and shirts and shoes. you but it to show your support.  you buy the opposing team to say "this is what we are going to do to those jerks as you take a big bite out of it.  It's a temporary fad... next what?  the Britney Spears burger?   You get to eat Britney lol or J. Lo or the girls get the Brad Pitt burger (here's the beef!) or heaven forbid the Charlie Sheen burger, so you have no idea where that meat came from!!!  the marketing is endless.  And not all people that eat burgers are fat.
