Though unofficial (it’s still waiting to be confirmed by Guinness Book of World Records, the previous record is 185.8 pounds), a Canadian chef has grilled up the world’s largest burger. Ted Reader, the man behind the monster, cooked the attempt in order to raise money for the Camp Bucko charity (they successfully raised $8,500).
The burger contains 307 pounds of beef, a 100 pound bun, 20 pounds of lettuce and 150 pounds of condiments. It took all of 6 hours to cook up. If you were to get the equivalent in your typical quarter-pound burger you would need to order 2,360 burgers. They had to design a custom grill with a built-in forklift mechanism designed to flip the oversized burger.
“It took six hours to cook the behemoth of a burger, starting off with a patty weighing 139 kilos. The grilled patty was then nestled in a 48-kilogram bun, dressed with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, red onions, pickles and barbecue sauce. I’m amazed that we got it out of the grill and onto the bun. That was the whole trickiness to it, but it’s held together, it’s edible, it’s delicious.”
Oh Lindsay…how far you’ve come from the cute adorable little girl from “Parent Trap”. So young…so much drama. It’s so sad to see the inevitable downfall of these young actors/actresses….although this girl has been on here way down for a long long time. If anything maybe she’ll finally turn around now…I guess only time will tell.
Good news, this just in: the courts have cleared her to take the antidepressants Zoloft, Trazodone, Adderal, Nexium and the painkiller Dilaudid, a drug that has been compared to heroin by some. Way to go there people…that oughta set her on the right track.
It looks like some 7-Elevens are now carrying an Ice Cream based on your favorite Facebook game Farmville. Personally I’ve never played it but from what I gather is widely popular…that and some Mafia game, right? If you couldn’t tell…I’m not on Facebook…I don’t like being poked.
Neither here nor there, you can pick up a pint of the ice cream for a reported $2.29 and it looks like it just comes in plain vanilla. What better to go along with your Farmville frozen treat then some delicious cake. Here are some truly inspired edible farms.
Oh you “weak” carrot you…have the gall to jump head first into the boiling pot of water…do it for your master. I’m not sure if this should creep me out or not but I find it pretty darned awesome either way.
At yesterday’s Nathan’s Hot Dog eating contest at Coney Island, Kobyashi was arrested for trespassing, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. The 32-year old and former Hot Dog eating champ did not compete in this year’s contest due to a contract dispute with Major League Eating (MLE) the group behind the event.
After the video you can read a statement from Kobyashi about his situation with MLE. This whole thing is pretty darned amusing to me. It will be interesting to see if the charges stand and where he goes from here with his career. He was once ranked #1 in the world and it would be sad to see a fall from grace (as it looks like that’s what’s happening). I guess only time will tell…until then..Free Koby!
