    That is pretty disgusting. But really, who would eat it? Of course, just the fact that they offer it is pretty bad.

    Then there's places like Burger King, where a Double Whopper with Cheese is over 1000 calories. And people eat those all the time. That's about 35% of the calories I need on a daily basis, and I'm a runner. They haven't posted the info on their new meat lovers (or whatever) sandwich, which is composed of a hamburger patty, bacon, and ham. Blech!

    BTW, given that the sandwich weighs 6.5 pounds, whereas 30,000 calories of pure fat would weigh just over 8.5 pounds, that is not a 30,000 calorie sandwich. Maybe - maybe - 15K. More likely 8K or so.

    I still say it looks tasty. Would I eat the whole thing? No way. But a bite or two? Damn straight.

    Take another look at the scale - it's actually gone around once. That sandwich weights 31.5 pounds, not 6.5, or about 1000 calories per pound. ;)

    But daddy sauce? *shudder*

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that, after a sandwich like that, you're not going to need roughage....

    BTW, I've recently tried (successfully) cutting out bad stuff like that from my diet, so maybe that's why it looks so good. Mmmmm... forbidden fruit. Or, rather, mmmmm.... forbidden deep fried fatty goodness!

    things like this make me happy I eat semi-heathily and walk at least 10,000 steps everyday. phew! thats just wrong. now all America needs is a fast way to burn the remaining fossil fuels and wey! onlookers can do that "w00w00w00" thing you hear and cheer as they destroy themselves and the planet. smashing!

    Isn't that the best though? I notice it any time I happen to be in a fast food place-- people order loads of food (always including the largest size of fries) and finish up w/ a dressing-drenched salad and a diet soda of some sort. :D

    I'm surprised no one has alluded to the ol' 96er from the movie "The Great Outdoors".
    Yeah, 96 ounces of pure red meat cooked to order. The meal is free if you can eat the whole thing in one sitting.
    Afterwards they take you to the hospital for a ruptured stomach. :D

    For me, I prefer the taste of diet sodas. Just don't like the sugar. I seriously doubt the really fat people are thinking that small calorie savings will offset the biggie fries, burger, and shake.

    come to think of it, maybe having people pay for their own health care isn't such a bad thing...

    I'd have to say you're likely in the minority. I know people who are, um, horizontally challenged who order diet drinks with large meals in an attempt to reduce the calories, not because they like the taste. It's like buying a new car, but leaving out the floor mats to save $150. Why bother?
