Cheesy Celebrity Art, Batman-Inspired Brewsky and a POTUS-Worthy Burger

Smile and Say 'Cheese': Rihanna's captured the attention of fans as one of several celebrities who has been immortalized atop a pizza.

President Obama said Shake Shack had been chosen for lunch because it has "great burgers and pays its employees more than 10 bucks an hour." [ Politico]
