A Ham-booger By Any Other Name...

Above, the loco moco burger can only be bought at a McDonald's in Japan, like this one in Asakusa. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

This little item came across my screen.

It is about some Hawaiian-styled foods being offered exclusively in Japan's McDonald's. One burger sounds good, but the name leaves much to be desired.

According to KHON Channel 2 in Honolulu:
The good news: McDonald’s has added Hawaiian-themed items to its menu. Think Hawaiian BBQ pork burger, loco moco burger [italics mine] and pineapple pie. 
The bad news: You can only get them in Japan. 
The specialty items launched Feb. 10 at more than 3,000 restaurants as part of a World Mac Hawaii campaign to keep Hawaii top of mind for millions of Japanese residents. 
The campaign runs through late March and includes a trip giveaway contest, conducted in partnership with Hawaii Tourism Japan and the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
Really? Loco moco burger. In some cultures, the word moco means something that comes out of one's nose.
