As defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a cheeseburger is a “hamburger topped with a slice of cheese.”Yet Google has been building burger emojis upside down for years.Over the weekend, eagle-eyed media analyst Thomas Baekdal pointed out the tech titan’s mistake. I think we need to have a discussion about how Google’s burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top pic.twitter.com/PgXmCkY3Yc— Thomas Baekdal (@baekdal) October 28, 2017Apple takes a traditional approach, placing tomato and cheese slices atop the patty. Google, meanwhile, erroneously uses the melted Muenster to cushion the meat at the base.Frankly, they’re both wrong: It goes bun, lettuce, pickles (I don’t like raw tomato), sauce, cheese, patty, bun. Simple.Put the cheese on the bottom, and you’re just asking for a soggy, doughy mess crumbling between your fingers.

The bold HTC includes two patties, allowing for optimum separation of cheese and lettuce (though the top-to-bottom-bun ratio is all sorts of off).Ever send a cheeseburger emoji in WhatsApp? The intricate image includes what looks like mayonnaise and ketchup spread over cheese, with a salad underneath the meat.I expect Pichai is hard at work already, gathering a team of burger connoisseurs to put their heads together and remake that dreadful excuse for a cheeseburger.While they’re at it, maybe Google should take a closer look at some of its other emojis: ‘Emoji House’ Feud Turns Calif.
