Fans of SpongeBob Squarepants may remember the first appearance of the Nasty Patty, a disgusting burger designed by the titular SpongeBob and his boss Mr. Krabs to fend off a fake health inspector trying to score free food. A creative individual decided to turn the grotesque menu item into a real-life burger, complete with the same visually nauseating aesthetic.
SpongeBob fan Danny Jay Do posted on his Facebook a side-by-side shot of his Nasty Patty. Do made a turkey burger he crusted in pea snap crumbs and topped it with a goat cheese and garlic aioli, a pea turkey gravy, Swiss chard veins and leaves, and sandwiched everything in between cranberry brioche buns baked by his sister.
Definitely a far cry from the original set of ingredients: Volcano sauce, seahorse radish, toenail clippings and fried with old gym socks.
Posted last Friday, the image went viral, garnering more than a thousand reshares through the platform. Do even went as far as shouting out viral YouTube pop culture chef Binging with Babish hoping the creator would have eyes on the sandwich.
Fingers crossed, my friend. Wonder if this talented young man has any other burger creations in the books?
