Today only, Sonic drive-ins are offering their deluxe cheeseburger for just 79 cents. 

So, "take a break from the holiday mayhem," as they're positioning this special deal, and also from the boundaries of good sense, if you're thinking about how it's possible to sell meat this cheap, and stuff all that holiday angst you may be experiencing into a cheeseburger or five.

It would be that much more emotionally helpful if they were selling 'em Maryland-style (below), but that's probably unlikely.
