When I look at that picture, the left side of my body starts to go numb...

Posted by Hernandez | October 13, 2008 10:56 AM

I would marry that burger. I would keep my own name though.

Posted by Mikki | October 13, 2008 11:04 AM

Seriously, though -- chop that thing up into a few dozen pieces and you've got the most popular hors d'oeurve at the party.

Posted by whatevernevermind | October 13, 2008 11:06 AM

Now it's just getting plain stupid.

I bet that defibrillator would cook the sandwich to a perfect turn. I eagerly await the infomercial.

Posted by Smade | October 13, 2008 11:11 AM

@11: Oh, damn, that's the best idea I've ever heard. It's PERFECT.

You won't need gall bladder surgery if you eat this bad boy, it will jump right out of our body.

Posted by Westside forever | October 13, 2008 11:25 AM

you haven't looked at the ~100 comments in the morning news, have you?

say NO to hamburger! eat your bacon & cheese without being a bush-loving republican meat eater!

Posted by jrrrl | October 13, 2008 11:26 AM

beef eater, sorry.

Posted by jrrrl | October 13, 2008 11:27 AM

@15 I did look at the 100+ comments on that post. It's fucking insane.

I do the same thing Fnarf does: locally-raised (Skagit Valley), grass-fed beef in very moderate quantities. That does NOT make me a fucking Bush-loving Republican.

Jesus, when militant vegetarians get together in a comment thread, the sheer hysteria rivals a Sarah Palin rally.

Posted by Hernandez | October 13, 2008 11:47 AM

I have a plan. It will make this thing look healthy. You have no idea what depths my culinary mind has plumbed. Bacon is not enough. I will make this altar tonight and offer up the nightmare that cardiologists dare not to dream.

Posted by Derek | October 13, 2008 11:57 AM

And the cool thing is that it was fried with wind power!

Posted by aaa | October 13, 2008 12:02 PM

If that was a real man's sandwich instead of a wussy wannabe, it would have a fried egg or two in it.

Posted by ivan | October 13, 2008 12:10 PM

This is fucking disgusting.

@4 ... Julie, you bitch. Eating meat IS bad for the environment. Why are you mocking something that is provable truth?

@17 ... Hernandez and Ffnarf, I highly doubt that that monstrosity is made with only grass-fed products.

Posted by Carolin | October 13, 2008 12:16 PM

A burger like that once or twice a year is fantastic, yummy. Once or twice a month and you'll really be needing that heart thingamajig.

Posted by Sargon Bighorn | October 13, 2008 12:20 PM

Who is Carolin and when will she go away?

Posted by w7ngman | October 13, 2008 12:22 PM

Ummm... Why can't Julie go away? And take her disdain for those of us trying to make a difference with her.

Posted by Carolin | October 13, 2008 12:24 PM

but they didn't make the bun out of meat.
and then wrap that in a meat pocket. dipped in meat sauce. between two meat doughnuts. on a meat sundae. fried to perfection. in cheese. then smoked. with bacon charcoal.

why stop there?

adding bacon and cheese ad infinitum is funny. ha.

I love it when vegans and vegetarians end up sounding like the Church Lady.

Posted by flamingbanjo | October 13, 2008 12:35 PM

Carolin, while you're lecturing, could you please remind us again that you never watch tv? Because people who never watch tv are really, really smart.

Posted by LDP in Cincinnati | October 13, 2008 12:37 PM

i definitely made almost this exact burger yesterday for someone and it was a truly horrifying and yet beautiful experience to watch him eat it. JA, you're an effing champ.

Posted by the chef | October 13, 2008 12:39 PM

Hey Carolin. I think that it is you, dear, who is the bitch. I was mocking you and your holier-than-thou, preachy, bitchy attitude, not the fact that meat is bad for the environment.

I eat virtually no meat. Maybe once a month or less. So, I probably absolutely agree with anything you have to say on this topic, from a content perspective.

But, unlike you, I know that the way to change people's minds is not to call them an asshole for eating meat.

Posted by Julie in Chicago | October 13, 2008 12:41 PM

and fyi, it totally had grilled onions on it, and possibly mayo. i couldn't convince him to have grilled mushrooms too.

Posted by the chef | October 13, 2008 12:42 PM

@21 - you can decide for yourself.

I get all my beef from these people. You can make all the accusations that you want, but it's nothing but hot air unless you're taking all the facts into consideration.

Posted by Hernandez | October 13, 2008 12:43 PM

Your idea of "making a difference" with someone is calling them disgusting, a taker and pig, retard, mouth-breather, and irresponsible, and a bitch.

Also, arguing that it's OK to use the internet because your computer is wind-powered is like saying it's OK to buy and eat meat because you cooked it on a wind-powered stove.

Posted by w7ngman | October 13, 2008 12:47 PM

Reciprocal gift accepted! BZZZZZT!! Thank you very much for the LOL.

Posted by Adam Kuban | October 13, 2008 12:54 PM

I've never seen anything look tastier. My environmental concern just left as I imagined eating it. That cow was a brave soldier for the meat industry.

Posted by Leslie N. | October 13, 2008 12:55 PM

That makes me want to barf.....

Posted by anthony | October 13, 2008 1:50 PM

It's architectural design compares favorably to New York's Museum of Art and Design. I suspect it tastes better too.

Posted by Cranky Old Man | October 13, 2008 1:55 PM

@30 Where can I get one? Do you deliver?

Posted by itsmarkmitchell | October 13, 2008 2:00 PM

I remember getting an oyster sandwich from the fish fry one time and having a vegetarian go on about how nasty it was to me. "Oh ew, how can you eat that! That is disgusting! I'm a vegetarian so I really think that is gross. Why would you want to eat that?" Here's a thought - don't eat it and let me enjoy my food in peace.

Posted by Mikki | October 13, 2008 2:20 PM

@37 You'll have to sign a release first.

Posted by the chef | October 13, 2008 2:29 PM

It's just bachelor food.

What is so clever about something one of Bristol Palin's boyfriends could have thought of?

Posted by elenchos | October 13, 2008 3:03 PM

you think this is about being clever elenchos? Get a grip.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | October 13, 2008 3:13 PM

If this is what bachelors eat then sign me up! I'm officially a bachelor now.

Posted by Mikki | October 13, 2008 3:15 PM

of course this is about being clever. there is absolutely nothing novel about this sandwich other than it's obnoxious proportions. put those same things together in a sensible portion and you've got yourself a bacon cheeseburger. when is the last time someone blogged about bacon cheeseburgers?

Posted by brandon | October 13, 2008 3:50 PM

so gratuitous is the new clever?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | October 13, 2008 5:09 PM

I had the Microsoft cafeteria grill make me one of the originals today.

Warning: Use small pieces of bread. Two sourdough grilled cheese sandwiches plus a hamburger is way too much bread to eat in one sitting.

Also, other toppings a good idea - just tomatoes and pickles made for kind of a bland experience.

On the positive side, it was only $6.20

Posted by Teman | October 13, 2008 8:35 PM

needs chili.

Posted by 8block | October 13, 2008 10:23 PM

I'd dip mine in ranch dressing...
