There is some debate over what genius first created a ground-beef patty, cooked it and put it on a bun with some other goodies.

Whoever did it first, I sincerely thank you. Hamburgers are fantastic. Add cheese, and you have something truly magical.

And what could be better than a nice, big, juicy cheeseburger? You guessed it: two cheeseburgers.

BOGO Thickburgers at Carl’s Jr.

Right now, Carl’s Jr. has an online coupon for a buy one, get one free ⅓-pound original Thickburger. The coupon is valid through Dec. 31, so you have plenty of time to practice finishing two of those bad boys.

Seriously, we’re talking about nearly a pound of beef and all of the trimmings that truly make a burger great. Leave your belt at home — you won’t need it.

Unfortunately, this offer is not valid at Carl’s Jr. sister restaurant Hardee’s.

By the way, what’s the deal with Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s? Here it is. A guy named Carl started hamburger joints out west. A guy with the last name of Hardee started similar places in the Midwest and Southeast. Eventually, Carl bought the Hardee’s franchise and slowly melded the two together, but kept the name for some reason. Weird, right?

But I digress. Now through the end of the year, you can get double the Thickburger from Carl’s Jr. Just grab the coupon and go get your burger on!
