It's safe to say that the pandemic has affected us all in different ways here in Maine. For some, it's been downright depressing, sapping us of our routines and excitement that made everyday life just a little more enjoyable. But for others, the pandemic has provided an opportunity to be creative, both personally and professionally, especially when it comes to the restaurant industry. One of those places where creativity has been on full display is Fairgrounds Pizza & Pub in Cornish. And if you don't believe us, just check out this new burger they're featuring.

Shared on Facebook by Fairgrounds Pizza & Pub, they've somehow created something that is both mouth-watering and heart-stopping at the same time. You're staring at a juicy beef patty smack dab in the middle of two loaded potato cakes. It's the kind of thing you eat where your taste buds will thank you and your arteries may take you directly to court.

If you manage to get your hands on this creative concoction, you probably won't be using your hands to eat it. There are just some burgers that may be better consumed using a fork and knife and this happens to be one of them.

Fairgrounds received plenty of thirsty (hungry?) comments on their post, but Cory Staples nailed what so many of us were thinking.

If this ridiculous burger looks like something you'd want to put in your mouth, Fairgrounds has and has had a whole slew of other culinary creations on special throughout 2020. Chances are, they're not coming up with more wild stuff. Have one of these burgers for us and then please go get a physical. Cheers!
