PHOTOS: Man poses for engagement photos with burrito
The saying goes that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. David Sikorski took that very literally.
The saying goes that the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and David Sikorski, a 28-year-old writer in San Francisco, took that very literally.
Sikorski became Internet-famous after posing for an extensive series of engagement photos with a burrito.
A burrito -- foil and all.
The photos hilariously depict Sikorski posing with his beloved burrito on a beach, in a park and in front of a series of famous San Francisco landmarks.
"The whole story behind it was more about poking fun at the fact how my Facebook lately has just been stacked and flooded with so many people's engagement photos and wedding pictures, babies, and buying news homes," Sikorski explained to Metro. "And I'm just over here eating burritos."
Sikorski's love for burritos is best described as "renewed." As a recent transplant from the East Coast he struggled to find any pizza that rivaled New York City's. His search for the perfect pizza, however, did lead him to the perfect burrito.
"[My friend] brought me to Taqueria La Cumbre and I got this amazing carne asada California style (with french fries and avocado) [burrito] and it was one of the most amazing burritos I've ever had." Sikorski explained.
When asked if his photos were aimed at making fun of engaged couples Sikorski denied any ill-intent.
"This is all just in good fun. I adore my friends and their pursuit of happiness and wanting to share that with everybody," Sikorski said. "I just find engagement photos very funny. It doesn't really catch the act of the proposal. [They're] basically 'Here we are! We just happened to be in a black and white picnic on a mountainside! Here we are playing hide and seek in the woods!'"
You're probably wondering -- did he end up eating his fiancé?
"The photo shoot lasted over two days," Sikorski explained. "Unfortunately I got hungry, and it is my favorite burrito. We ended up getting a second one."
That, dear readers, is true love.
