    hee hee. I’m a big Warhol fan, actually. And speaking of his eating habits: apparently if anyone ate lunch at Andy’s, he’d serve them Campbell’s soup. Not to be ironic, or even self-promoting… he just genuinely liked Campbell’s soup. Of course, people eating at the home of a millionaire might’ve expected something more haute cuisine…

      I’m pretty much an anti-Warhol type. I get what he did, but just didn’t care for much of it. Thought he was too… I don’t know, obvious? This I liked.

    Where did he get his burger? I didn’t recognize the logo on the bag or box, which looks like an illustration of a stuffed burger. Could be a national chain, by the way it’s packaged. I assume this was made in the ’60’s, who knows if they’re still around?

    Kind of weird the way he eats most of it, then takes off the top half of the bun, folds over the remaining burger, dips it in ketchup, then finishes it. I wonder if Lou Reed saw this and started eating his burgers this way?
