Jeremy Linsanity

Ever find yourself looking for another way to channel your inner Lin, now that Ben & Jerry's "Taste the Lin-Sanity" flavor is out of the picture? Then check out Mr. Bartley's new burger, inspired by the now infamous Harvard grad.

After Ben & Jerry's public relations screw-up, many franchises have steered clear from celebrating Jeremy Lin's success with their products. But Bill Bartley, the owner's son, said the Harvard Square restaurant wasn't all too worried about pushing some people's buttons. "If you don't have a sense of humor, don't do it," he said. "I've made mistakes, but I've stuck with what I've done. Don't be a coward!"

Made with a simple yet satisfying mix of mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce, "The Jeremy Linsanity" burger is bound to convert even the most loyal LeBron junkie into a Knicks sympathizer, at the very least.

The burger has been featured on Bartley's menu for almost a month and has already started to draw crowds in. "For some reason, it's selling much, much better than 'The Republican,'" Bartley said.

So does this burger pass the taste test? With flying colors, according to employee Glynnis E. Cronin. "It's like eating a giant meatball," she said.
