    Some young guy in Pennsylvania just ate a burger, that weighed, including the bun and additional toppings, 20 pounds, in 4 hours!!! The patty itself was about 15 pounds.

    Now, I like my Quarter-Pounders with Cheese, and even 1/3-Lb Angus Burgers, but Holy Living Fuck!

    Now, most of you guys here probably wouldn't eat a burger very often. But, if so, how would one physically recover from such a glut-fest?

    The guy in question is 5' 11" and 180 lbs, 21 years old.

    Ah, for the metabolism of youth...

    Jeez, that's probably about 50,000 calories at least...He's not 180 anymore.

    I'd recommend 25 capsules of fish oil with that.

    Damn that looks tasty!

    I really don't think the body would be capable of absorbing that many calories in one go, I really think they'd ummm, pass though... so to speak..

    Damn, that really does look good!

    I have to admit, it really does make my mouth water!

    If you remember the credit opening of the show NORTHERN EXPOSURE, the moose walks down the main street, Pennsylvania Ave., and passes a restaurant named Village Pizza. I had a pepperoni pizza there once during the filming of the show. It had slices of pepperoni the size of CD-ROM disks! And I thought THOSE were huge. But looking at that burger, just...DAMN!!!

    I would seriously be worried about my GI tract's ability to digest that... but eh, 20 pounds of meat would (i assume) mostly just be shat out the other end undigested anyway... the South Park with the massive dump comes to mind here...

    I remember seeing a TV show, probably on Food Network or Travel Channel, with restaurants that offer patrons a free meal, if they can eat t all n one sitting. I did a Google search and found this article.

    When I in high school there was a place called Farrell's' (sp) Ice Cream Parlor, that had a monster Sundae, It wasn't free, but I took the challenge to eat it all and did. Had the hits for 3 days, but no lasting problem. And since I was swimming 20,000 yards a day, no weight gain at all.

    Why would anyone do this? Have people's sensibilities become so blunted that they would rather have quantity rather than quality? I guess the answer is yes.

    It doesn't look appetizing to me - in fact, the last time I ate a hamburger it didn't taste good - boring - a chore to finish it - so for me, there are much better, more delicious things to eat in this world!

    I was getting queasy just looking act. OMG! considering that it takes 7 days to digest a steak, I would have no idea how to recover from that!

    Good Luck Chuck!

    I'm with jockbod here. When I previously ate a burger it was a real chore to finish it. I had to have another yesterday to remind myself what a chore it was.

    I'll probably have another one next week, though I'm sure it'll be a real chore to get through it.

    Someone's got to do it, life can't always be fun.

    If you guys are choking down burgers, then they're not made right.

    I prefer to make my own at home, and I NEVER have a problem finishing them, it's all in how ya make it =)

    But that's just too much for one person. A party of 20 maybe...sure. =)
