White Castle's 27 cent hamburgers: 87 minutes only!


Hungry? Live near a White Castle?

At 2 p.m. today, Eastern time, the hamburger chain, White Castle, will start selling their hamburgers for 27 cents.

The catch?

They'll just be doing it for 87 minutes. It's to celebrate their 87th anniversary.

There are also a few other catches, which they've apparently designed to keep them from going bankrupt. No phone orders, and you can't order more than 10.

Which pretty much foils my plan of feeding myself, my wife and daughters for the rest of 2008.

Geoff Williams is a business journalist and loves that he lives in America, a country with a sense of humor (right?), where any government social workers probably recognize that he's kidding about feeding his kids nothing but White Castle hamburgers for the rest of the year.
