Make your own McBillboard!
How good would it be to have your very own McBillboard? Oh, about 10 goods. Here's one we made, shame it's not real, but it's the thought that counts! RonaldMcHummer.com has a political message about over-consumption, gas guzzling hummers, and their inclusion in happy meals, but hey, it's fun to make your own billboard!
Nick Farr and the Defcon 20 patty In 'n' Out Burger Challenge
Back in 2004 at Defcon 12
(computer security conference) Nick Farr was challenged to eat a 20 patty burger from In 'n' Out. Would he do it? There was a pretty fat cash bounty up for grabs if he could! Would his 1337 hax0ring skillz0rz be enough for him to crack the 20 patty challenge? (Thanks to Dark Tangent at defcon.org
for the pics!)
In and Out receipt for a 20 patty burger. Serious money is riding on Nick finishing that burger

Joey "The Jaws" Chestnut has done the unthinkable in a lead-up to the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Championship.
He's beaten Takeru Kobayashi's 53 3/4 Hot Dog Record, downing 59 1/2 HDB's (Hot Dogs and Buns) in 12 minutes, becoming the World's Fastest Hot Dog Eating Champion. I'm looking forward to the 4 July Finals!

60 burgers in one sitting for "Healthy" teens
Australian schools have been trying to combat the obesity "epedemic" by changing tuck shop/canteen menus to offer more healthy alternatives. Unfortunately, kids will be kids, and if you take away burgers from schools, they'll just go down the road and get them instead. So much so that these kids downed 60 burgers in one sitting at their local McDonalds. Apparently local shops near schools are selling record amounts of junk food, and kids are selling soft drinks from their back packs! hahah
MONTHS after state schools were ordered to dump junk food from their menus, most are still serving pizza, hot dogs, ice-cream and other processed foods.
The Government introduced the "traffic light system" in its Smart Choices program to tackle childhood obesity on January 1, but half of schools have failed to get the balance right. Pizzas and hot dogs were labelled under the system as "amber" foods – to be served only occasionally – but Queensland Association of School Tuckshops spokeswoman Chris Ogden said schools were lagging.
Sichuan finds the World's Largest Egg

Australia's Largest Lollipop destroyed in fire
A Supersized tragedy... Australia's largest lollipop has been destroyed in a fire in the northern Victorian town of Echuca. Even though the store sustained damages of around $500,000, I'm surprised just how well the lollipop looked at the end of the blaze! I suppose it makes sense, it's melted sugar...
Australia lost its largest lollipop in a store fire in the northern Victorian town of Echuca.
The fire started in the heritage-listed Echuca Heritage Sweet Company at 4am. It damaged two adjacent shops and led to the evacuation of 14 guests from a local bed and breakfast in the heritage-listed area of the town.
The Bionic Burger
There once was a man who forgot he'd put a burger in his jacket pocket for 12 months. When he put on that jacket again and found the burger, he was amazed that the burger hadn't changed, and that it looked and smelt the same as it did a year before. Thus was the story of the Bionic Burger, and for 18 years, he's been time-capsuling these burgers for future reference...
True story about a man who's been saving hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and Big Macs from McDonalds for over 18 years... and they look EXACTLY the same!
Heart Attack Grill on Japanese TV
A Japanese TV show recently did a report on the Heart Attack Grill. Strange to see the owner speaking in Japanese though. But wtf is up with the interviewer that looks like Ziggy Stardust wearing a crown? Crazy!
A Japanese news crew spent an entire day shooting at the Grill. Check out their final newscast. You don't need a translator to enjoy it...
