Finally, the Hamburger God has revealed himself. His name is Hamblor and he has the power to shoot onion strings out of his hands and shatter a blue cheese-based bust of himself by using his mighty voice. Like any good god, he has nubile, burger-loving goddesses by his side and rides on a monstrously huge St. Bernard bearing a cask of A.1. sauce around his neck. You can join his kingdom on September 28 for the chance to rise to immortality win free burgers and other prizes from Carl's Jr. and Hardee's.

Something tells me that the tagline, "Tastes Like It's Made by the God of Hamburgers," of the new Steakhouse Six Dollar Burger/Thickburger from Carl's Jr. and Hardee's is overselling it a bit, but we can't knock it till we try it. The burger consists of a charbroiled, 100% Black Angus beef patty topped with A.1. steak sauce, crumbled blue cheese, crispy onion strings, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayonnaise on a seeded bun. They're available now at all Hardee's restaurants and at Carl's Jr. starting Wednesday.
