There's no ham in hamburgers. Unless the McDonalds employees have been hiding things from us.

The joke's on all of you since I'm pretty sure he meant there is "ham" in "HAMburger" as in saying there is "Sp" in "Speak".. why else would he emphasize it?

Many assume they call it hamburger because of the city Hamburg, Germany. But I'm not actually sure if that's where the name comes from. And 5, congratulations on your first comment.

27, 28, 44-- they're named after the hamburg steak. A beef dish consisting of ground beef (usually mixed with seasonings and sometimes onions) pressed into a patty, cooked and then served like a steak. Eventually someone got the idea to throw it on a bun, and thus was born the "hamburger"

I can't believe that this many people couldn't understand this joke. It was a bad joke, but an obvious attempt at one nonetheless.

some book said something about back in the caveman days, people used to just eat piles of raw meat. and they got the idea to cook it. and the location was somewhere around hamburg. but that's probably wrong. how would anyone know where cavemen first cooked meat? lol

wow you guys really don't know sarcasm when you see it ad he literally meant HAMburger that's why he capitalized it

You guys overlook things. The letters "H", "A", and "M" are in consecutive order in the word "Hamburger". Get it now? It was a play on the word. Tony was referring to the spelling rather than a physical hamburger.

Yeah toni1891, while I'm sorry your sarcasm was misread, it honestly was a REALLY bad attempt at a joke. No offense man.

53 - Ah. It sounds like it would mean someone who lives in Hamburg, like a "Dubliner" lives in Dublin. Which means there really IS a Cheeseburg, Germany! :P

The ground meat used to make a hamburger, is also called hamburger. The ground meat was invented in Hamburg, Germany. The hamburger (the sandwich) was invented in New Haven, CT.

45-Coffee has caffine in it. Surely you know that. This is why the father-in-law thought coffee cake had caffine in it. And it can, but it didn't always. Like in OP's case.

Nordag: I see. Well, that was my mistake. Silly me! Talking about things I know nothing about. Oh, well. Off to the next FMLs!

That's like saying you should change the name of 'hamburgers', because it doesn't have ham. The new name just wouldn't catch on.

And many people dip cakes in coffee so they made a cake that would better accent the coffee. They call it coffee cake.

I'm pretty sure 11 is right, and they also go great with many other beverages, such as juice. All I really know about them is that they are delicious.

Man, I can't even post replies on the Android app. What is this? Is this some kind of discrimination against me because I'm rabid? So help me if I find out who masterminded this plot against me I'll... grrhhmrrrr

11- it depends on the recipe used. Some coffee cakes are really more correctly just a pound or bunt cake... But some recipes do include a cup of cold coffee added to the batter. So you are half right. :)

Reply

41 - I was going to ask you which app you were using, because there are a few different FML apps available on the Android. Then I found the joke :P

Reply

109- no other varieties of coffee cake do include coffee as an ingredient besides tiramisu. That would be one of the more popular ones though

Carrot cake has carrots in it. Coffee flavoured cake has coffee in it, but a "coffee cake" doesn't necessarily have coffee in it. Hamburgers sometimes have bacon, so close... I don't think he should have called her an idiot, that's just rude.

French toast and French fries are called that because they were first made and France, and as everyone above has already commented carrots are in carrot cake. Crunchy? Carrots get soft when heated. Have you ever actually cooked before? Or for that matter, eaten?

Reply

Making carrot cake without carrot is like drinking decaffeinated coffee. You can do it, but why bother? Call me old fashioned but I don't like to substitute ingredients when I'm cooking unless I have no other choice.

I have yet to have a carrot cake without carrots in it . . . am I missing something? I'm pretty sure carrot cake without carrots is just a spice cake.
