A man named Lincoln Boehm found an untouched and perfectly wrapped ‘double-double’ burger from In-N-Out on an empty street in Jamaica, Queens.
The 31-year-old shared a photo of burger in fresh condition on his Instagram account and wrote, ‘’Finding an untouched double double on the ground in Jamaica, Queens is the most confusing thing I’ve ever experienced. Ever. What the fu**k is going on @innout? #mystery.’’
Lincoln told New York Post that he was heading to McDonald’s for breakfast with his wife when he came across a perfectly wrapped burger from the West Coast chain Saturday at around 6:30 a.m. on Sutphin Boulevard in Jamaica.
“It genuinely shook me to my core,” he said.
“sitting comedically, like perfectly up on the street, completely untouched,”
“We didn’t touch it,”
“We stopped for a second and took photos and looked around to see if anyone else was noticing it and then we walked on.”
Lincoln was surprised to see the condition of burger and he said how it had remained looking “as if it had come off the grill five minutes ago.”
Lincoln loves In-N-Out so much that he has eaten more than 1,000 of their burgers in his lifetime. He said that he’s probably had “over 1,000” In-N-Out burgers in his life and called the delicacy “my death row last meal.”
He assumed that the mystery burger was placed there as a part of a publicity stunt, but a representative from In-N-Out has since refused the theory, telling Vice, “We were surprised to hear recently that one of our Double-Doubles was found on a street in New York.
Because our burgers are only cooked fresh to order in six states, it must have taken considerable planning for that burger to make the trip from the grill all the way to the Empire State.So while it is a mystery as to how one of our burgers ended up in Queens, we’re sure someone is having a good laugh.
