As the photo of Harmon staring into his burger spread online earlier this month and grandkids Kelsey and Brock Harmon updated a captive audience, many expressed a wish to eat a burger with Papaw. A few days after he went viral, Papaw decided to invite everyone out to eat some of his burgers with him at a special cookout in Purcell, Oklahoma. Burgers cost $2 and they made shirts for the occasion, and the proceeds would go towards paying Kelsey and Brock’s college tuition, putting money away for the other grandchildren, and to charity.
The Harmons were prepared for big crowd, ordering more than 2,000 burgers for the occasion. The Internet didn’t disappoint and came out for the occasion. Papaw finally had the audience he deserved.
Update: papaw lives in the middle of nowhere

Some people drove several hours to eat one of Harmon’s burgers, where some waited in line for 45 minutes to take a photo with him.

A burger made with grandfatherly love? You can’t beat that.
