i wonder if the prize consits of 50% off by-pass surgery, or 2 for 1 enema deals?

that thing is like as big as a birthday cake. they should sell it by the slice.

by the way dude; how the hell do you stumble across this kinda stuff? it cracks me up!

they tell you that you get three hours to eat it. three. hours.

something that big would feed a village.

anyhow, pick up this stuff in the daily traul through my newsfeeds. this one came from snopes.

I was thinking it would feed a large family, but I am starting to be swayed to the village argument.

i think you could ship these things to third world countries. after a month, they'd all be like fat americans.

I know. Shame. I'll work on it, so that one day I may look at a burger like that and not feel completely and utterly defeated.

maybe if you had a baby.

eating one of those burgers is like having/eating a baby, i'm sure.

I don't believe I'm physically capable of containing a baby and that burger in my body at the same time.

(I bet that burger is nothing like eating baby. Baby doesn't come with the lot. No onions.)

yeah, but there are all those bones in a baby. it's hard to digest bones.

Which is why I don't eat them. Bad going in and out.

...you know, there's a bit i could say to the bad going in part. but i won't. i will resist. yes.

Goodness. A gentleman. I shall have to put you in a cage an exhibit you to the public for 50c a peek.

it's always cages with you, isn't it?

note how i am avoiding getting drawn into a last name tit-for-tat thing.

To be honest, I didn't even notice. Oh, I was clever for a moment and it passed me by!

And yes. My pornstar name could out sumo yours any day.

totally. it must have been a certain kind of harshness at highschool.

Only in the sense that there are no original jokes for me to hear, and people never realise that. Sure you get the same.

oh yeah. they're all the same. of course, the thing with my name is the ability people have to spell it wrong.
shadowsandice
Sep. 9th, 2004 06:37 am (UTC)
With an a?

You'd be amazed how many people spell my name with a C, even though I specifically spell it out with a K, all the friggin' time.

Gutterminds, the lot of them.

actually, it's the amount of misspelling that'll really get you. the primary two are peak and peck, but i've seen peeke, and pek too.

i'm not surprised by the c, to be honest. i know this girl whose last name is kok. i imagine she suffers in much the same way.

I would do almost anything to prove a point. Perhaps even eat a baby.

Perhaps.

they're all bone. they go crunch. or are soggy, depending on the age. like you're eating bnes left in water for months.

Hitman?
I'm guessing that you are referring to the Hitman comic, where he and the Hat would go and get those gargantuan burgers.

I think I could eat that thing; what does it weigh, 3 pounds? I was used to consuming over 2000 calories at a setting for three meals a day once upon a time; the trick is to pace yourself. Oh, and drink lots of castor oil, or is it cod liver oil? beforehand. The laxative effect, ya know.

Re: Hitman?
yeah, hitman. that's exactly it. i wish dc would continue published the trades--it was much stronger than preacher at times.

you know, i reckon a lot of people have said they could eat one of those. but that's a lot of meat, man.

i think you should try this place, anyhow. take the challenge for those of us unable to due to geographical considerations.

Okay, I had to figure this out. That burger is six pounds so that would mean that it is the equivalent of 24 quarter pounders from a fast food restaurant--plus the tomatoes and onions and all of that. So that means 24, if not more, people could have a filling lunch from this thing, so somewhere between a family reunion and a small village. That's my guess.

And I'm thinking it's not 4 percent fat organic ground sirloin either...

yeah, i'm thinking the healthy content in this burger is freely ignored.

24 people. man.
