    A 15lb. Burger. The Burger War Continues?

    The burger war is growing. Literally. Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, which lost its crown as the home of the world's biggest burger earlier this year, is now offering a new burger that weighs a whopping 15 pounds.
    That's a lotta cow.

    Denny's Beer Barrel Pub had offered a 6-pound burger — with 5 pounds of toppings.In February, a 100-pound female college student became the first to eat the burger within the three-hour time limit.


    What? 100lb female. I'd imagine the person to be a Paul Bunion type.

    I like a good hamburger as much as the next guy/girl, but that is crazy.

    Wouldn't you die from meat posioning at about half-way through it?
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    It's always the thin people who can pack it away to the most. The current reigning hot dog king in Nathan's hot dog eating contest is a thin japanese man. He packed away over 40 or 50 of those dogs. My larger friends are always shocked by the amount of food I can pack away.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    I think this is really disgusting. It promotes unhealthy eating... I know it is someones choice to eat this way and that is fine, I just find it gross...No one needs to eat that much food, be it meat, salad or vegetables, there is no need for someone to do that to thier bodies, especially for a T-shirt and 27$ meal

    Someone in Colorado is turning Vegetarian....
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea has just announced through their official news agency in Pyongyang that their Illustrious Leader Kim Jon Il has created the 100 kilogram burger and finished it in less than one hour. Kim created the burger as a tribute to this year's record setting abundant beef harvest.

    The Glorious Leader has assured the workers of the DPRK that this year's summer beef harvest will be so plentyful that the country may need to assign more workers to help with the fall wheat planting which is necessary to provide buns for all of the burgers the state plans to issue to the many happy workers of the DPRK. Kim has assigned Jo Park Cho as the new minister of large foods and the Choson nation's excessive food supply. Cho, the former DPRK minister of the mass disposal of emaciated counter-revolutionary corpses exclaimed that “this is the best Communist Party day ever.”

    President Bush’s administration sent Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the UN Security Council meeting in New York today to denounce the DPRK’s escalation of Korean Burgers of Mass Cholesterol. “DPRK beefy-beefy burgers are an unnecessary assault upon its neighbors in the region and the US immediately calls for 6-party burger-de-escalation talks to begin in Tokyo this summer!”

    This morning one (1) of the national networks had the burger and the restaurant manager on for an interview. The reporter asked him to take a bite. He grabbed it, and you could see that what he was lifting was very heavy and bulky. He tried to take a bite and as he did you could see grease dripping down on the table.

    He did explain that people buying their big burgers (they have other "big" sizes) are buying for a group of people.

    It actually looked pretty good, although a bit too large for the average Bear.

    (BTW.....it cooks down to about 11 pounds.)

    From the Late Show web site:

    Top Ten Questions To Ask Yourself Before Eating A 15-Pound Cheeseburger


    10. "Does this restaurant have a defibrillator?"

    9. "Am I that hungry or should I order the 12-poud cheeseburger?"

    8. "Does it come with fries?"

    7. "Would it be easier to eat 60 quarter pounders?"

    6. "Can I get it on a low-carb bun?"

    5. "How expensive is it to be buried in a piano case?"

    4. "What am I going to have for dessert?"

    3. "Why is everybody looking at me?"

    2. "What would Jesus do?"

    1. "Can I super-size that?"

    This morning on one of the morning news shows they were showing off a Moral Mushroom that measured 12" in lenght and I can't remember how much it weighed but they said the guy should put it on the Mega Burger they featured the other day.

    I've been to Denny's Beer Barrel Pub! I worked for a consultant in New Jersey and we were doing the EIS for a big road project in central PA. Clearfield was where we stayed when we were forced to be there for multiple days. Not a lot going on in that part of the state. Denny's is actually one of the few non-chain restaurants. I convinced my snobby, semi-vegetarian, NYC-dwelling supervisor to go there and she rather reluctantly admitted she actually liked what she ate. I think she was horrified by the giant burger thing.

    Oh god that's disgusting.... I guess she ate it with a good gallon of drain-o to unclog the arteries

    Now.. I like meat, but I hate burgers... I guess it's just because you don't know what meat they used to make that burger...
