Although evidence emerged last week suggesting Chipotle might jump into the burger business, it remains unclear if and when the embattled burrito company will actually launch a so-called "Better Burger" restaurant chain. Some experts believe the move is probably a bad idea, and now, late night lip-sync battle provocateur Jimmy Fallon has also weighed in on the matter, with a hilarious list of pros and cons.
As seen in the clip above, Fallon didn't pull any punches with jokes about Chipotle's recent food safety issues; for example, "Pro: Chipotle is calling it 'Better Burger.' Con: Your digestive system is calling it 'In-N-Out.'" Unsurprisingly, that's not the only poop joke that made the list, along with burns referencing Donald Trump and even El Chapo.
All jokes aside, a Chipotle-owned burger chain still sounds pretty appealing, considering the company's customizable quick-service model and because it'll probably mean more cheeseburgers for you. And while it appears unlikely to happen any time soon, at least we have all-new Chipotle cocktails to look forward to.
