Should we bang a gong to commemorate the occasion?

Carla Taylor, a professor in human nutritional science at the University of Manitoba, said the T. Rex sent the wrong message.
"Food is something I don't think we can treat in this way," she said. "We need to get appreciating good food ... of appropriate portion size.


Food. Serious business.

I don't see the problem.  If I want to buy a nine-patty burger and a Bucket-O-Fries from Wendy's, then that's between me and Wendy's.  It's really no one else's damn business.

Remember this one?

From Episode #13 "The Drive Inn"
 Here we come on the run,
with a burger on a bun,
and a dab of coleslaw on the side.


Your taste we will tickle,
with a cold dill pickle,
all of our potatoes are french fried, fried , fried.


Our burgers can't be beat,
because we grind our own meat,
grind, grind, grind, grind grind.


And when you drive away,
a tip upon our tray,
we hope to find, find, find, find, find,
we hope to find, find, find, find, find.

If their regular 1/4 lb. burger is 590 calories, how can a nine-patty burger be only 3,000 calories? Oh well, if she was good in math, she probably wouldn't be a reporter.

sort of like how she reported that it has six kilograms of salt.

pretty sure the burger in total doesn't weigh 13.2 pounds.

If you're that desperate for a 9 patty burger, just buy four doubles and a single and make your own.


Lard ass.

Because it's 9 patties, not 9 burgers.

Typical decent quality beef is about 200-220 calories per 1/4 pound serving. So the standard burger has one of those, and ~370 calories worth of other crap. (Bun, mayo, cheese, ketchup.)

3000 calories is about right for ~2 1/4 pounds of meat, a half slice of cheese between each patty, bun & fixins.

Might be bad math or it might be the fact that it still only has one bun. The bun can account for over 100 calories all by it self.
Yeah, I know. The math still doesn't work, but it's closer. Maybe they put mayo on it or something.

FlyingJ: This Is What Countries With Socialized Medicine Actually Believe


Yes, because there are no "fat farks eating ginat burgers, steaks, ribs or whatever in the U.S.

In fact, Americans have wholeheartedly empbraced healthy eating!

Surely you've all heard of these Bastions of Better Eating that owe their start to the American passion for vegetables and exercise....:

Kentucky Fresh Cauliflower
Tofu Castle
Jackfruit-In-The-Box
Turnip Bell
Chuck-E-Celery
In-And-Out Lettuce
Whatabroccoli
5 Guys Organic Tofu
McEggplant's

Clearly socialized medicine causes us puny humans to discard our common sense completely in a feral regression that seeks the satisfaction that only a free heart transplant can provide.

How much sodium in each patty?  How much in beef naturally?  Crazy.

I love the fact that they have `combo' pricing on this as well as a stand-alone one.
It would be incomplete without fries & a drink.

Technically, there's a decent chance that your hamburger contains particles that were once part of a T-Rex.

/or the air you breathe

crypticsatellite: 6,000 grams of sodium.


New to metric, are we?  6,000 grams = 6 Kilograms...about 141/2 pounds.

I think you meant 6,000 MILLIGRAMS.  Which is about like chugging an entire salt shaker.

[www.delish.com image 338x450]


Wendy's Single = 600 calories
Wendy's Double = 840 calories

implies:
Bun, "salad", condiments = 360 calores
One patty+cheese = 240 calories

thus:
360 + (9 * 240) = 2520.

/difference between a double and triple is magically 280 calories, which works out to 2880 total..

A "flimsy" bun? Criticism is okay, but there's no need to be nasty.

But it was a diet drink and the fries had sea salt.

I stand corrected. And I can stand because I've never eaten one of those monstrosities.

somebody there apparently reads Fark or heard from somebody who does.  They have corrected the story to read "6,000 milligrams of sodium" and acknowledged that it was initially reported as "6,000 MOTHERFARKING grams of sodium."

/I may have added an embellishment
