Jackie Mason has cow over burger

I don't blame Jewish comedian Jackie Mason for having a cow. You won't catch me mixing meat with dairy.

The New York Post reports:
"I would never entertain the thought of eating cheese - real or fake - with meat," comedian Jackie Mason, who keeps kosher, told The Post. "It makes me nauseous just thinking about it."
Cheeseburgers no matter how you play them cannot be kosher. You don't mix meat with dairy!

Rabbi Basil Herring, the executive vice president of the Rabbinical Council of America, comments:
Jewish law is very concerned for appearances. Not only should you always do the right thing, but it should be seen as the right thing.

Any Jew who keeps kosher knows a cheeseburger is not permissible. But … what happens if a young kid, a 10-year-old, goes in there and says, hmm, maybe cheese on a burger is OK?
