How Diplo Is Like Jack in the Box
Tonight, internationally known DJ, producer, butt appreciator and celebrated good looking person Diplo will play a set (along with Chromeo) in honor of Jack in the Box's new late night menu.

While this unlikely pairing is surely a cash grab, it got us thinking about how much Diplo has in common with the new Jack in the Box menu items.
Both are kinda sleazy, but kinda good. Especially at two in the morning when you're pretty drunk. Let us explain:

Jack in the Box menu item: Stacked grilled cheese burger
Yes, this is both a grilled cheese and a cheesburger in the same damn sandwich. For only six bucks, you get your two favorite sammies stacked on top of each other, bookended by sourdough, and served along with the two of Jack's signature tacos and pile of fries (regular and curly). For the first five bites, it's really not bad.

Like the aforementioned sandwich, this event starts out all like 'Wooo this is crazy!" But much like eating meat stacked on top of cheese stacked on top of more cheese, hanging out in a parking lot all day while poppin' molly and watching Riff Raff can make one feel kind of scuzzy. Similarly, by the end you will quite likely find yourself alone, sitting in a pile of discarded wrappers with a desire to just sleep the whole thing off.
