    Only $305 for the hamburger bed right now, and "the pickle pillow is NOT included." (Sweet! I hate pickles). If Kayla (who made the bed) had read the New Yorker article you guys link to, though, she might've added a side of fries. That article is seriously amazing, btw. Especially the section on the experiments with portion size.

    OMG the burger bed! So cute! It would really change the tone of my sex life, though.
