Man Eats 15 pound burger plus 5 pounds of Toppings

From USA Today:

CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) — A chef at a western Pennsylvania Italian restaurant ate a 15-pound burger with 5.2 pounds of toppings in 4 hours and 39 minutes. Brad Sciullo, of Uniontown, is the first person to successfully eat the huge burger at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub, said pub owner Dennis Liegey.

The burger — called the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser — include a bun, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, onions, mild banana peppers and a cup each of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and relish.

When asked what possessed him to eat a burger that big, the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Sciullo said: "I wanted to see if I could."

They have the actual picture of the guy and burger; it's much bigger than even the one I have pictured.

This segues nicely to the Word Lady Jane Taught Me This week.

Oh, and by the way: not for nothing, but I could totally eat that burger, if I could omit the onions (doubling up on pickles or something), and swap out the mayonaise for something tasty, like cheese sauce.
