to be honest with you Datdo, I had never heard of them until last week.. i did a google search and whamo, it's the SouthEastern version of the White Castle burger.

I think there are a few Krystal stores in the North East, but most are south of Virginia.

I haven't seen a Krystal outside of Tennessee. Do you happen to know if the name of the small burgers are actually called gut bombs or is that what my dad's family named them?

gut bombs, sliders, grease balls. are all pretty common names.

here we go, I found this..

1. gut bomb
A coney dog or chili dog, LOADED! Occasionally misused to also describe one of them bite sized late-night "greezy spoon" hamburgers with grilled onions, which technically is known as a "slider."

so it would seem the gut bomb is actually a Coney dog or Chili dog that is LOADED.. etc etc etc..

And something you might not be able to see from the picture is that whenever it talked about other countries and food, it just said "food" or "dinner". America was the only one that mentioned an actual type of food (and notice instead of "a hamburger" they say "your hamburger"), so it really looks like the ONLY food in America is hamburgers. :| Hamburgers for breakfast, hamburgers for lunch, hamburgers for dinner... And everyone is just scarfing them down, all the time.



probably the result of SuperSize Me??? :D


eheh right! there was that guy that only eats bigmac, and was also talking about drinking them (he was joking of course :P )
