Please Don’t Propose with a $3,000 Burger on Valentine’s Day
***Disclaimer: I'm not a fan of burgers, or any red meat at all, for that matter. So please take that into consideration while reading this post.*****
Pauli's Northend posted this special offer on their Facebook page on Monday, February 5th. "This Valentine's Day you can get a Big Boy Burger for only $3k! It also happens to come with an engagement ring to propose to your loved one later that night. Make this the best V-day yet. (Please order 48 hours in advance)."
The "Big Boy Burger" comes with 1/3 pound pure ground beef, American cheese, bacon, barbecue sauce, and onion rings...and an extra ring on top of the bun. CBS Boston reports that the "burger features a 7/8 carat princess cut, Neil Lane engagement ring, framed by round diamonds and a 14k gold band."
"Nothing says 'I love you' like a ring with barbecue sauce dripping down your arm, right?" Wrong, Pauli, wrong. Fellas, I'm not even sure where to begin. The owner said he hasn't had any takers on the offer yet, and frankly, I'm not surprised. I think this type of proposal is for a VERY small group of couples with a sense of humor so unique that I don't even think I know anyone personally who would go for it.
Also, you need to consider her personal preference on how the proposal would go down before you even think about popping the question. Does she want a public engagement, or would she rather have it be a private moment for just the two of you? Do you even know if she likes the style of ring that Pauli is offering with the meal? Might want to double check before they hand you the "Big Boy" and you immediately regret the most expensive dinner of your life.
