ok, i just read through that about four times, and i'm confused. how do you have a 10lb burger made with 7lb of meat?
 
2004-12-21 10:12:45 PM  
Well, that makes one thing in Scotland that hasn't rolled over and fetched like a dog at the whim of the British.

That Scotch soda bread is pretty hefty.

Like it or not, the Scots ARE British. Perhaps you meant the English.

65 pounds, How much is that in real money?
 
2004-12-22 05:54:44 AM  
That's a tad expensive.

"65 pounds, How much is that in real money?"

$208 dollars... no, $240. $280. Wait... 454. Hell, I don't know. You'll have to go there and ask, the dollar's devaluing too quickly for me to keep up.

I think 1 pound is about 1.91 cents right now. In that area.

So it's over a hundred dollars. For...a burger.

Yes, but it's free if you can eat it within three hours
 
2004-12-22 06:14:58 AM  
I reckon I coult take about 1.5lb's. Maybe 2. Over 3 hours? Maybe 2.5....

Isn't it a little unwise to encourage people to try and stuff themselves with much more food than anyone can possibly eat and still live?

That's only because you'll die if you finish it.

"But all efforts have proved unsuccessful, with one contender even failing to polish it off with the help of five of his friends"

That's pretty wussy. Five mates can't finish off a burger they intentionally set out to conquer.

And I thought they bred 'em big in Scotchland.

I bet it tastes crap. i bet the yank pennsylvania 6.25 lb burger tastes a whole lot better.

Fun Fact: Calling a Scot "Scotch" was the leading cause of ninja assassinations on 2002.

I'm afraid it's time for you to find out what REAL ULTIMATE POWER really is. Sorry.

I'll have the 10lb. burger with a large fries and a diet coke please.
 
2004-12-22 06:26:39 AM  
Alright,

Not only am i starving and work 2 blocks from this place, but it's my birthday and i want a burger (maybe with candles in it). I can only pray that they sell some sort of beer or beer-like beverage.

Happy birthday. Now go get it, tiger, and don't forget to take pictures both at the restaurant and in the emergency room.

why? seriously, im curious. you ever had a burger made from aberdeen-angus beef? i've never tasted an american burger, well, apart from mcdonalds, but im sure thats not what all american burgers are like...are they?! :o

Aww, come on, you can do better than that. You're the only who can actually do it. Shouldn't it be something like:

"Ach, me laddy, 'tis like the swuiit taeste ov 'aggis!"

No, no, you're confused. See, London is in South Scotland. It's just that the English people who live there don't know it. Which is necessary to keep them in line.

And they do breed 'em big in Scotland. I shouldn't really be telling you this, but the Whole World is actually rulled by seven foot Scotsmen. They just pretend to be lizards pretending to be world leaders.

Are you allowed purge breaks when attempting to eat that thing?

you really dont know too much about the history of Britain do you? Scotland actually ruled over the Britannese until Walesonia staged a popular revolt using coal dust and leeks and returned rule to the Irish, who up till that point had been in lengthy discussions with the communist republic of France about creating a unified superstate called Guttenberg.

I like it! Well that explains why there's so many of the scotch variety here in el capital. As a quarter Scottish myself, I feel an infinity to our hardened neighbours.
 
2004-12-22 07:15:43 AM  
It's not the size of the burger. The viral cocktail, one part Hoof & Mouth and one part Mad Cow Disease, kicks in after about 2 hours leaving the Scots drooling and running into walls.

/or maybe they were just drunk

Keep your blood thin... Hmmm.. Have to learn that one.

heya dibs!

well, nobody in england can really cook (native brit here) i lived in california for 5 years and had some really good steaks and stuff, and if your ever out there, go to a place called Johnny Rockets, a pretty decent 50s burger place. but i doubt its very good, the penn' one takes two hours to cook. and lets face it, the scots eat haggis.

Thats a new one on me, but, hey, each to their own. The Scots are British, so are the Welsh and Northern Irish.
