Bring me the head-sized burger of Alfredo Garcia.

I think people should be allowed to chose for themselves. Of course choosing the wrong way is completely worthy of a Darwin award. But then again some people smoke. We don't need an advocacy group to tell us anything. Mind your own business.

I actually think that this burger is a form of birth control, after all anybody having eaten such a thing can hardly be expected to move.

Not obese: Rubenesque.

From eating too many rubens sandwiches.

Should these burgers not also be seen as weapons of mass destruction?

A soupecon of mass arterial obstruction.

I'd love to actually see someone eating it, but I would stand at least 20 metres away.

Well suppose four people ate the monster. That would be--what--1200 calories per person. Not that good, but not that bad either. And if they didn't consume those awful soft drinks it wouldn't be too bad at all.

All that aside, I have ethical qualms about gimmick food, which is bound to be wasted, while there are starving people in this world. Excuse me if this sounds corny and bleeding-hearted. No, I don't think that not making an idiotically big hamburger is going to feed the millions. I see it as symbolic of a national that uses a disproportionate amount of the world's resources to maintain an extravagant and unhealthy national lifestyle that still generates and neglects poverty.

Anyway, I can see four people enjoying this thing. I cannot see one person really enjoying it.

Consuming that much meat is bound to give you a serious case of meat sweats, add ethanol sweats and balmy summer day and you have a stadium filled with ode de fat guy.

Worry not that was not what I meant. It was just that the “Prince” became a Prince after some sweety kissed a frog. And I just see a burger this size being the means by which that process would get reversed. But answer me this, could you actually eat ALL that? It’s enormous!

I actually think that this burger is a form of birth control, after all anybody having eaten such a thing can hardly be expected to move. You might also reason that any member of the opposite sex is not likely to be too attracted to a person that consumes food in this way. Unless of course they also consume food like this & then that would be two people to over fed & probably too fat to have sex.

I do like the way that the Americans have this war on terror in an effort to protect the American people from nasty fanatics who might try & kill them while at the same time allowing the sale of something so obvious dangerous. Should these burgers not also be seen as weapons of mass destruction?

"the Washington-based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine" is a vegan advocacy group???

I suspect that this thing is meant to be eaten by a party of four if not more.

Interestingly, the bun looks to be a cut above the usual fast-food bun.

Some guy threw some chili and chips onto a massive burger and people in Japan are now talking about it. Brilliant marketing for the team.

"Basing your meat consumption decisions on the advice of vegans is like basing your birth control decisions on the advice of some celibate geezer from the Vatican."

Hehehehe...

Looks like something I would glady eat afte a pub crawl.

Anyone who would seriously consider eating that is probably already obese and on a fast track to cancer and heart disease.

The 4-pound (1.8-kilogram), $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 (20-centimeter) bun.

Chili and salsa and corn chips on a burger? What kind of madness is that? Sheesh.......The next thing you know they'll put mayonaise and corn on a pizza!!!!!..........Oh, wait a minute.

Whitecaps spokesman Mickey Graham says the burger is a gimmick that’s being promoted as a very unhealthy menu item.

Why don't they go all out and include a side of arsenic fries with salmonella dipping sauce?

They should make all the players eat one before the game. That'd slow down those smarmy little base-stealers.

She’s asking that the 4,800-calorie burger be labeled a “dietary disaster” that increases the risk of cancer and heart disease.

I think anyone would be able to recognize that for themselves.

Doesn't look head-sized, but certainly looks like Chunder Pounder.

I imagine the advocacy group for cleaning the loos will also be up in arms.
