While the student might not die, the student will be confined to a toilet for a few hours. With explosive turds.
2001-09-25 12:13:00 AM  
Hmm, is that where that explosive turd in cs_militia in Counter-Strike came from?

Oh, and uh... boobies.

Whitecastle only rates their burgers at 135 calories; they must be pretty puny. Even so, that's 4320 calories. bleah

gotta be a hoax... and I likes the bengals too.
2001-09-25 12:25:00 AM  
i've been saying this is their year for...oh...the last 8 years. but enough getting off topic. i'm gonna go make a white castle run.
2001-09-25 12:31:32 AM  
Braver man than I...they don't call them "sliders" for nothing.
2001-09-25 12:39:02 AM  
I will break them.

major stoner = major munchies = mucho whitecastles

not to mention the simple style points I would pull down...you wanna give me an extra point for bacon? load em up...

2001-09-25 12:59:30 AM  
White Castles + Beer. What more do you need? Yum.
2001-09-25 12:59:35 AM  
But he gained about 100 pounds in the process.
2001-09-25 01:01:55 AM  
I like the frozen ones, are the real ones nasty or something????
2001-09-25 01:03:22 AM  
David Turner '02s record-breaking victory this year earned him a pair of official White Castle "Fresh Buns" Air Fresheners, donated by the restaurant manager, as well as a copy of the White Castle 1998 Recipe Book.

Gawd. What a great prize he won. [/sarcasm] And he did it back in 1999. Boo-yah.
2001-09-25 01:07:13 AM  
and this is ironic how exactly?

I ate a hamburger today and didnt die...is that ironic- or is it only ironic if I eat a whole bunch of hamburgers?
2001-09-25 01:08:39 AM  
One time I drank 3 litres of Kool Aide in half an hour. Does that count for anything?
2001-09-25 01:16:56 AM  
True he didn't die... but this reminds me of a song my friends and I wrote long ago. I believe the chorus was:

"Don't eat the sliders... whatever you do...
Don't eat the sliders... they'll kick back on you!"

Now pray to the porcelain god!!!
2001-09-25 01:21:24 AM  
My all time record for white castles is 12. I paid for it later. Oh, how I paid. hemmeroids the size of a poodle after the water shiatz finally stopped.
But the sense of personal accomplishment made it worthwhile.
2001-09-25 01:23:27 AM  
Theman, no it's ironic because he ate a whole bunch of White Castle hamburgers. "Steam grilled over a bed of onions"... Yum?

I'm dull. Just give me one Vortex burger, no mayo.
(Hell, even a Boca burger will do.)

The trick to living a guilt-free life is,
don't do stuff you know is wrong.
2001-09-25 01:37:21 AM  
I once worked with the guy who was easily 450 pounds...anyway, he's done the White Castle century! Yep, 100 of those tasty li'l morsels!
2001-09-25 02:06:25 AM  
What's so different between those and say, a Big Mac? They don't have them in California.
2001-09-25 02:57:58 AM  
White Castle hamburgers are just tiny greasy (50% of calories from fat), extremely tasty and addictive hamburgers.

They are much smaller than a Big Mac or even the McDonald's basic hamburger, so eating 4-6 (or more) of them at a time is no big deal. Eating 32 is equivalent to a normal person's fat over 3-4 days, though.
2001-09-25 04:18:15 AM  
Theman: The irony is in the volume. There's no White Castle in Hawaii either, so I don't know quite how bad those burgers are, but let's take a McDonald's burger. They got McDonalds where you are? Let's just take a puny, half a buck cheeseburger.

Eat one of em...bleh, hardly even noticed that you ate.
Two: ok, now we're talking.
And so on.

By burger #10, unless you are an eating maniac, you'll start feeling uncomfortable.
By #20, positively stuffed. Hope you skipped breakfast.
By #32...lessee, did you want your heart attack with your dehydrating attack of the explosive squirts, or on the side?
What's that, you'll just burp and walk off happily? Wow, didn't expect that.
2001-09-25 04:42:56 AM  
damn no-white-castle-having-california
2001-09-25 04:51:18 AM  
its ironic, like rain on your wedding day, or a green light when your already late (read:not the least damned bit ironic). while this is surprising, mebbe even amazing, theres an utter lack of irony here. and white castle burgers are much smaller than the 50 cent burgers at mcdonalds.
2001-09-25 05:30:47 AM  
the closet we have in CAli is the store bought one from the freezer section......

anyone had both?? how do they hold up to the freshies???
2001-09-25 08:04:49 AM  
A few points about White Castles. 1) They arent greasy. The steam and onions makes the buns seem greasy. 2) They dont taste bad as some people in non-WC areas seem to think. 3) The frozen ones dont come close fresh WC's
2001-09-25 08:31:22 AM  
I was there when he did it (Jim Hunziker '98), although my best year was '96 (only 14 3/4 - I would have puked had I eaten that last 1/4). Be sure to check out the style points below each contest!
2001-09-25 09:28:32 AM  
Agreed: it's NOT ironic. Semantics proof to be difficult once again...
2001-09-25 09:39:29 AM  
Years ago I watched some dude attempt to eat 100 WC "belly bombers" at a saloon in downtown Cincinnati. The bar played the event up for weeks with posters and a few radio ads.

The burgers arrived in large metal trays from the "restaurant" on Vine Street. And the guy started to chow down. He looked like he was starring in an Alpo commercial.

My memory fails, but I think he made it to about 80 or 85 burgers before he tore from the bar and puked his guts out on Race Street. His violent vomiting was greeting with cheers, laughter and applause.

Tip to non-WC patrons: don't EVER buy the frozen ones from the supermarket. They are horrible! Get the real McCoys at a
White Castle restaurant...and try to be half-drunk when you do. Trust me, it helps.
2001-09-25 09:53:56 AM  
wise man say: "what go down, not always stay down."
2001-09-25 10:09:38 AM  
Actually, I find the frozen ones passable when

For those of you in the South, White Castle burgers
are very similar to Krystal burgers, only greasier
and yummier.

My personal best is 16 (way back in the '91 contest)

Crap crap crap. Sorry, didn't close the ol' link.
2001-09-25 11:09:39 AM  
I know one thing: don't eat a sack of ten before a date.
2001-09-25 11:17:56 AM  
I don't know what the hell you people are talking about. I love White Castle and i have never had a problem with the bathroom afterwards....EVER! And i eat there at least once a month or more...i always get a at least 10 or so...

Those burgers are damn good.

In fact, this article has made me decide to go there for lunch!! MMMM!
2001-09-25 11:32:42 AM  
Maybe he hasn't died yet. But wait and see he will. I'd bet on it.
2001-09-25 11:38:12 AM  
Never before in my life did I have a good solid case of the dribbling shiats than when I was a freshman in college, and innocently, on my first day of college, decided to try out the local White Castle on Long Island.

Never before in my life have I felt something inside me hunt for an exit like those little burgers did.

2001-09-25 11:44:53 AM  
Any hamburger conversation is not complete without mention of the greatest hamburger joint known to man, IN-N-OUT.
I laugh when people from other areas brag about White Castle or some other joint. The simple fact is NONE compare to God's gift to hamburgerdom. I also love the fact that IN-N-OUT is only a west coast thing so everyone else can be jealous. If you don't know what I mean, just ask a friend in California to send you a Double Double and I bet it would still taste so good after a UPS shipment and you, then, would know what it is like in hamburger heaven.
2001-09-25 11:45:45 AM  
Yes, I am fat.
2001-09-25 11:52:44 AM  
Every elevator this guy gets in for the next month could be his last.
2001-09-25 12:17:45 PM  
Don't have a White Castle around here, so I've never tried 'em fresh, but those frozen ones could gag a maggot.
2001-09-25 12:32:06 PM  
Eating 32 White Castles gets you elevated to Stoner Godhood.
2001-09-25 12:58:11 PM  
I've never eaten White Castle hamburgers, but I've always wanted to after hearing the Beastie Boys mention them in their songs. But I live in Cali and there are no WC's here.

But we do have in-N-Out, so NA NA NA NA NA NAAAAA.
2001-09-25 01:20:44 PM  
2001-09-25 01:42:52 PM  
I had a girlfriend once who started chanting In N' Out, In N' Out, In N' Out as we were driving past one. I turned to her and said "no problem, and when were done you want to get something to eat?"
2001-09-25 01:44:46 PM  
So... did you?
2001-09-25 01:47:41 PM  
Similarly to this "eat as many WC burgers as you can" contest, I know people who try to eat the largest In N' Out burger possible.

In N' Out's most popular burger is the Double-Double, which is 2 meat patties and 2 slices of cheese plus lettuce, tomato, onion, spread, and bun.

In N' Out will make 3 by 3's, 4 by 4's, and so on. The numbers represent how many meat patties and slices of cheese go into the burger.

I have seen someone eat a 10 by 10, and I've heard stories of a man who ordered a 25 by 25 and it was so big they laid it down in a box and he ate it with a fork.

Just wondering if anyone has some In N' Out records of their own.
2001-09-25 01:48:58 PM  
I had a 10 by 10 In and Out once...but it had nothing to do with burgers.
