Shake Shack and Shaq Unite to Form Shake Shaq

When stars collide

Basketball legend and noted Easy-Bake Oven chef Shaquille O'Neal is a very tall person. Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti is, presumably, of average height, but in this once-in-a-lifetime Instagram snap he is decidedly dwarfed by the former NBA star:

No matter: Garutti has probably been waiting years to make that prize-worthy "Shake Shaq" pun.

Will Shake Shaq — er, Shake Shack — ever create a limited-edition Shaq Shake in the sports icon's honor? According to the internet, the seven-footer's favorite foods include fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and Top Ramen, none of which sound like they'd make a very good Concrete. He's also a vocal fan of Frosted Flakes, however, which sounds like a potentially tasty combo along with say, vanilla frozen custard and a caramel swirl. Quick, somebody get Danny Meyer on the phone.
