It would seem that hamburgers are considered ordinary by nature. How sad that such a fine sandwich is outshined by the cheeseburger. How cultural that the hamburger is viewed as plain, merely for it’s lack of cheese. Who would disagree that, in this day and age, more is always better?
Well, I’ll have my hamburger without cheese thank you.

Regardless of all historic obstacles (fight against obesity, e-coli bacterial concerns, the mad cow disease outbreak, and the recent "go-green" and vegan attitudes that are so prevalent as of late) the hamburger industry is still predicted to continue to grow and this, I assure you, is no thanks to the addition of cheese. Hamburger consumption has been continuously rising in the past few years and there are countless factors for this steady growth:
Hamburgers are affordable, portable, and customizable. They have the kind of flexibility that allows for easy adaptation of the "hamburger concept" to the current economic and cultural settings. But the largest point I'd make would be that there is simply no such thing as a cheeseburger.
[Yes. You read that right.]
I'd suggest that if you allow for cheese to ever be entered into the hamburger equation that the toppings themselves [whatever those may be] do not determine the nomenclature or underlying spirit of the thing. [Once a hamburger then always a hamburger!] Look, in a very real way I feel strongly that this is a matter of taxonomy and not toppings. I ask you, is a hamburger with onions to be called an onionburger? Should those of us who enjoy our hamburgers topped with mushrooms be forced to refer to them as mushroomburgers? Of course not! Does the presence of lettuce on our hamburger require that they be referred to as lettuceburgers? Ha!
I say leave the cheese for the pizzas!
In closing I'd remind everyone that there is no such thing as a Cheeseburglar is there? There is not. Because there is no such thing as a cheeseburger and even if there were there isn't anybody desperate enough to commit a felony in order to have one. And if this were not convincing enough evidence then need I remind you of the esteemed J. Wellington Wimpy who, as you well know, allowed himself to fall into a tremendous amount of debt due to his unbridled and unrivaled appreciation for hamburgers. Nobody would dare suggest they heard this great man utter that he'd gladly pay them Tuesday for a CHEESEburger today! Hardly!
