The other day my wife and I went to see Iron Man and the cheeseburger scene during Stark's return to the United States struck us as rather funny. She commented, "Americans always want a cheeseburger when they come back home." 

It is true. The New York Times reports that Michael Phelps is craving "a big, juicy cheeseburger" now that his Olympics have finished.  

I'll admit it, I too wanted a cheeseburger upon my return from Argentina last year, a place where the meat is, well, amazing. MSNBC's Brian Williams has apparently done some research and found that the cheeseburgers in Beijing are better than those in the US. 

So, what is it about cheeseburgers? Specifically, what is it about "made in America" cheeseburgers?
