Gothamist got wind of this photo, which shows a man bearing cronuts attempting to trade them for a spot in the front of the line for Ramen Burgers at Smorgasburg. Smart man.

This enterprising gentleman, known as Hagan Blount, explained to Gothamist: "I had friends coming and I wasn't sure they were going to get burgers." Blount deserves all credit for managing to snag cronuts and Ramen Burgers; he took a chance and decided to double up and walk away from Smorgasburg with two of the city's most coveted food items. 

After securing three Cantaloupe juices from a stand right by the Ramen Burger line, Blount was able to cut the line and get a Ramen Burger. His friends apparently weren't as lucky. He's clearly the star out of the group.
