This is a question Conned

swiftyisNOTevil writes, "I have recently become obsessed with the BBC Three show 'The Real Hustle' - personally, I think of it as a 'How To' show for aspiring con artists."

Have you carried out a successful con? Perhaps you hustled a few quid off a stranger, or defrauded a multi-national company. Or have you been taken for the wide-eyed, naive rube that you are?

High Street Burger Bar Pictures.
I was in such an establishment the other week and thought I'd treat myself to a greasefest for lunch.
The picture above the till showed a thick, juicy burger with a large rasher of smoked bacon, thick slice of melted cheese and dripping out of the side, a chunk of tasty relish, all garnished in a veritable landslide of fries, so I parted with my £7.45

What I got was a sad, joyless slither of beef which was probably the finest cut from the scrotum, what looked like a strip of my granny's buttocks deep-fried in old chip fat but which actually turned out to be very sorry looking bacon, a slice of cheese which bore no earthly resemblance to any cheese I had ever seen, and on lifting the burger bun found the relish masquerading as something which looked like a smear test.

I could've counted the fries on the fingers of 2 hands.

I tried remonstrating with the staff that their advert was misrepresenting the final product, but there was no point. The poor sod behind the counter probably took home in a week what I take home in a day, I had no wish to make his day even less palatable.

I suppose you could argue both he and I were being ripped off.

"something which looked like a smear test"
I'm sorry, but I am going to be ripping off this wonderful expression and using it myself at the earliest available opportunity.

Smear Test
I actually worked in a smear test, erm, factory, yeah, and McDonalds bought smears off us for money for their burgers 100% fact

You should have drawn his attention...
...to the film "Falling Down" before going on a gun rampage through your home town.

That would've been appropriate too.
Since I have a flat-top and NHS glasses.
I actually look like a 1950 american paedophile. Hence my lack of participation in the hotornot phenomenon.

Fast food never looks like the picture
See here for more comparisons

I've just pissed myself laughing at that
Most of those burgers look like a fast food representation of the female pudendae.

I suppose thats why they call 'em Beef Curtains.

evil penguin's link was very accurate
but I liked this link off that reality pic page better:

(it is an accurate sounding description of the side-effects of fat-blocker weight loss pills that is so gross yet so funny)
