I Can Has One Ton Cheeseburger?
You can has two thousand pound cheeseburger thanks to a casino from right here in Minnesota.
Black Bear Casino near Duluth cooked up the crazy idea to make the world's largest cheeseburger and lo and behold, on Sunday, they did it.
It was created from 17 hundred pounds of meat, 60 glorious pounds of bacon, 50 pounds of lettuce and onions, 40 pounds of pickles and 40 pounds of cheese. By the way, a crane was brought in to flip the burger while it was cooking. When all was said and done, the burger weighed a total of 2,014 pounds, was ten feet in diameter and it took seven hours just to bake the bun. As for how many calories this thing had? The chef figures it contains over four million calories.
Of course, the "World's Largest" is oftentimes a term that's thrown around just to tout whatever it is someone is trying to sell you, but a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records was there to witness the unveiling and measuring of the behemoth burger and, the burger takes the cake! The last "World's Largest Cheeseburger" only weighed in at a measly 881 pounds.
The burger was sliced up and served to guests at the casino and from the pictures, it looks thoroughly disgusting, but Guinness rep Philip Robertson said it tasted pretty good.
Would you eat it?
