Hardee's Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger - Meat as a condiment?
Hardee's has released another thickburger, this time they're using Philly Cheesesteak as a condiment! Yes, condiment. Meat as a condiment... mmmm... would you like a Meatshake to go with that? ;)
Using meat, such as bacon, as a burger topping is not a new idea, but Hardee's has taken the concept to its extreme today with the launch of the new Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger(TM). It's meat-on-meat as Hardee's new burger features a 1/3-lb. Angus beef Thickburger patty piled high with thinly sliced steak, two kinds of cheese and green peppers and onions. The result is a truly delicious and authentic tribute to the classic Philly Cheesesteak -- as only Hardee's can make it.

Supersized ambulance hits the road in Vegas
And on the complete opposite of the weight spectrum, a Las Vegas company is putting new extra-large ambulances into service. I wonder if it's got anything to do with the worlds largest buffet
hosted at the Las Vegas Hilton?

101-pound man eats 6,500 calories a day
While this isn't a "Supersized Meal", this guy has to eat them every day! I wonder if we could recruit him as our official product tester? :)
Matt Chaffee, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, must eat 6,500 calories a day to get his weight over the 100-pound mark. He has to wear heavy clothes to help him conserve heat and keep from getting sick.
The 27lb cheesecake
The cheesecake was the brainchild of a man who calls himself Mr Cod-Liver Oil (pictured here
), and was constructed as a suprise birthday present for a friend. There are 35 pots of creme cheese in it: unfortunately some of these had to be of the low fat variety, since our local supermarket didn't have enough of the normal full fat type in stock.
Christian's Big Burger!
Big burgers are awesome, and this is no exception. Another fine home made creation, this time by Christian!

4289 foot burrito, world record!
sent this in a few days ago. You may remember a few posts ago, the 1997 successful world record attempt at the worlds largest burrito.
But that was then, and that record has been broken! May 8th. 1999 was the date that the official "worlds largest burrito" was made! Ole!
When was the last time you enjoyed a great lunch wich made history, had music and good fun under the sun, plus gave to charity? It probably has not been anytime soon.

Take a whole lotta popcorn (910lbs), a whole lotta sugar (1500lbs), a whole lotta syrup (690lbs) and way too much spare time and what do you get? The worlds largest popcorn ball, weighing in at 3100 pounds!
Those fun loving people in Sac City are at it again. Forty-four volunteers and five staff members of Noble Popcorn Farms built a popcorn ball that weighed 3,100 pounds on Sat., June 12th to promote popcorn and to create a tourism attraction for the community as it heads into its Sesquicentennial celebration in 2005. The ball surpasses the old Guinness Book of World Records of 2,377 pounds set in September of 1995.
