    Because now you don't have to be ashamed anymore of your urge to go to the MacDonalds or Burger King or whatever joint you visit.

    Because you will not get fat from eating those.

    ...at least not when compared to the "Beer Barrel Belly Buster"!

    [​IMG]
    This behemoth burger comes with 10.5 pounds of ground beef, 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard and banana peppers -- and a bun.

    It costs $30.

    Suddenly, I'm starving....

    Rev. Mike, you topped everything off nicely with that side order of onion rings and the frosty root beer.

    It's just like "Cheeseburger In Paradise" by Jimmy Buffett: I always get hungry everytime I hear that song.

    okay, i watched 'SuperSize Me' Last week, so this sort of think should repulse me...

    nope, it doesnt.

    (we dont get that sort of think over here - if you ask for a large fries you get dirty looks from everyone in the que!)

    I wonder if that is the burger...

    ...that the psycho soccer mom called 911 for. If so it all makes more sense now!

    I'd disregard SuperSize Me as so much propaganda, if only because it paints with such a broad stroke. (It's highly unscientific; besides, only a criminally insane person or a disturbed masochist would eat at McDonald's three times a day for a month straight.) But be that as it may, a lot of Americans are just now getting around to the realization that bigger portions do not necessarily equate with true happiness and satisfaction.

    To be perfectly honest, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone--American or otherwise--who would actually dare to tackle such a culinary behemoth as that burger. (But looking at it still makes me hungry! :p )

    The t-shirt of a guy at the gym recently had me counting "One Tommy Burger, two Tommy Burgers"...etc. (LA-area folks know what I am referring to.) It was brutal, but I digress.

    The Beer Barrel Belly Buster conservatively totals 20,133 calories and 1376 grams of fat. You could work it off with just 23 hours of running (8-minute miles), 24 hours of cycling (@18 mph), 36 hours of basketball, 44 hours of racquetball, or 49 hours of walking (15-minute miles uphill). That's before the onion rings and root beer, of course.

    My brother and I like to go up to Staten Island once a year or so, to go to Mandolin Brothers (legendary guitar store). Awesome place!

    ...and we always then go across the street to this little bar and have what my brother calls a "Chest-Clutcher" burger. Really great burger with bacon and cheese on an English Muffin (which isn't a muffin, and isn't really from England, although it's kinda based on a crumpet). Damn, it's good! French fries, too, of course.

    I think it's time for a road trip!

    Cheers, Tim

    ditto!

    "Honey, Tellypicker and I are going to check out some gear... I think we'll just grab a burger so you won't have to make dinner... bye..." ;)

    Tim,

    I live in Staten Island. You've got to tell me the name of this place. I like hamburgers almost as much as Teles. Next time you come up. Send me an email. We'll have burgers and talk teles.

    Rev, I don't remember the name of the place, but if you stand in the door at Mandolin Bros, it's across the street about a half a block (or less) to the right. Classic hole-in-the-wall bar, vaguely Irish pub-like.

    I'll definitely let you know when we come up!

    Cheers, Tim

    For you true, burger loving Valley boys, I have two words Pappa John's (the late, great burger stand on the corner of Victory and Hazeltine). Double cheese, please.

    Another late, lamented burger hangout was Chunky's, in Westwood Village.

    I'd almost consider moving back to California for In-n-Out (almost). Go animal!

    Does it still exist?? We used to have in Colo Springs, CO (at least as late as the early 90s), man I loved that place, you could stuff yourself for 2 or 3 bucks!

    A 100 pound girl put that thing away?! The amount of food your stomach can hold is roughly the size of your two hands cupped together. You can keep cramming stuff in there, but eventually there's no place to put it. I wonder if they let her take bathroom breaks, where she, um, expelled some of what she'd already eaten.
