Website Claims It'll Ship You Two In-n-Out Double-Doubles to Anywhere In the U.S...for $50

In the Department of Too-Ridiculous-to-Be-True-But-It-Most-Likely-Is is this: a luxury-catalog website will ship two In-n-Out Double-Doubles (either classic or Animal-style) anywhere in the continental United States for the low, low price of $50--plus $6 shipping and handling, of course.

WTF?

"Yes, we are for real," reads the website for something called Midnight Row. "We'll ship you TWO classic Double-Doubles. Burgers will be frozen fresh and shipped via overnight, express mail."

Of course, afterwards comes the fine print: "TERMS: We make no guarantees. We will ship with proper refrigeration via overnight mail, but reheat and consume at your own risk. Midtown Row bears no liability for any damages caused by improper handling of these burgers."

The mind boggles at anyone who actually takes up Midtown Row on this offer (who the hell wants to eat a reheated burger, In-n-Out or not?). But if Midtown Row gets even one sucker to buy in, they're the smartest people on the planet--and I want in

This offer is obviously a test to see who's stupid and who isn't.

if you think this is a bad idea, you're stupid :P i bet they've had not just 1 "sucker" , you silly excuse for an article writer, but HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of people would buy these most delicious burgers (yes, even if its shipped overnight and even if they're cold, they're still amazing, whether you reheat it or not. although $50 might only be worth it to the most desperate/rich) ONLY found in california/arizona/oregon/nevada, Mostly just california though

Well I do know if the french fries are not consumed within the first fifteen minutes after you get them they suck! reheating them makes them worse. personally I've never let an in n out burger get to that point so I can't say. but frozen and reheated is never good.

I think I got dumber reading this post... This is a "fun" part of the weekly... If you want to rip on Gustavo oo over to Naval Gazing... plenty of material over there!

As far as this... "although $50 might only be worth it to the most desperate/rich) ONLY found in california/arizona/oregon/nevada, Mostly just california though"   

You cant drive 5 miles in any direction in CA without running into an In N Out they are also in AZ and in NV... What a really asinine assertation.  Why would a rich guy in CA pay 50 bucks for a cold burger he has to wait 24+ hours for when he or she can drive up the street and get one NOW, and HOT!
