4,800 Calorie Burger

I’m on a diet, and I can’t explain why this makes me smile, but a Michigan ballpark is serving one burger that contains about 3 days worth of calories…

The 4-pound, $20 burger features five beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili and liberal doses of salsa and corn chips, all on an 8-inch sesame-seed bun. That’s a lot of dough!
The Grand Rapids Press reports that anyone who eats the entire 4,800-calorie behemoth in one sitting will receive a special T-shirt.

Sometime soon, someone will win that T-shirt, and I have to kind of admire them. Whatever else happens they won’t die hungry.

Excuse me while I chew on a lettuce leaf.
