USC football partners with Fatburger: Let's try to make jokes about this

It's apparently not easy.

It looks like Lane Kiffin is holding a menu. Is that a Fatburger joke?

After reading this item, I solicited my colleagues for jokes about Fatburger. You know, amusing things about Fatburger to which I could compare amusing things about USC football.

I don't know any jokes about Fatburger. I've never eaten there. As far as I understand, Fatburgers are near In-N-Outs, which are good enough, so I'll just go to those. Fatburger is probably fine.

Since none of my colleagues stepped up to provide me with Fatburger jokes, I Googled "fatburger jokes." Let's review the first page of results. /clears throat:

Yelp.com:

It's The Strip. Everything is served with alcohol, overpriced, and over-the-top. Can't say that this place is an exception to this unwritten rule.

Trip Advisor:

Service is a joke.

Glassdoor:

My coworkers were fantastic, and we strove to make it a fun experience for everyone. We made jokes, had some laughs, and were praised for our customer service.

Gothamist:

Fatburger's fresh (i.e. not frozen) lean beef patties are cooked to order, their onion rings are "made from real onions" and the shakes are hand-scooped, which gives them some street cred in our opinion.

Urbanspoon:

First of all, I can't believe I ate at a place called FATBURGER. I mean seriously? My colleague and I always joke that we can never eat at Blimpie's because of the name.

Orange County Register:

People who harass others or joke about tragedies will be blocked.

Seattle Times:

Ever since the former heavyweight champion and his publicity man, Bill Caplan, noticed that the 275-pound Foreman got his biggest laughs when he joked about his cheeseburger-abuse problem, he has been asked repeatedly to come up with the Foreman rankings of America's hamburger franchises.

Fatburger.com:

Back at work, my sweater and I were the butt of several jokes and I vowed that my second visit would be in my least favourite T-shirt and a plastic poncho.

Nobody knows any jokes about Fatburger. USC football is joke-proof.
