How much force needs to be with you to eat a black burger? The Belgian fast food chain Quick is celebrating the new "Phantom Mencace 3D" movie premiere by launching a line of Star Wars-themed burgers. Despite being in French, the ads for the burgers have sent the entire internet into a tailspin of equal parts repulsion and curiosity.

Quick's limited edition burgers come in three flavors. There's the Dark Burger-a double cheeseburger on a seeded bun with some kind of creamy mayo spread. Then there's the Jedi Burger, another double patty cheeseburger, this time inspired by the cryptic genius Yoda. Only few are enlightened enough to know whether those white pellets peaking out from under the bun are cheese curds or marshmallows .

Finally there's the burger with the most buzz: The Dark Vador (they misspelled it, Star Wars purists, we didn't). This double beef patty has cheese and a light salad topping (perhaps, for the cautious dad inside Darth?). It also has a pitch black bun that goes beyond the hue of pumpernickel into burnt charcoal territory. Most likely, the bun's just been dosed with a hint of food coloring. True Star Wars fans may want to bite into the gimmick, but the rest of us have eaten enough "Dark Vador" toast in our time to be turned off.
