If so, the West Michigan Whitecaps can help. The Class A Midwest League affiliate of the Detroit Tigers will offer hungry fans a 4-pound burger.
The caption for the AP photo below is: "Josh Kowalczyk, an intern with the West Michigan Whitecaps in Comstock Park, Mich. poses for a photo March 24, 2009. The $20 burger will feature a sesame-seed bun made from a pound of dough, five 1/3-pound beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili and liberal doses of salsa and corn chips, all perched on an 8 ounce sesame seed bun."
Oh yum! An excellent symbol of gross overconsumption that sensitively reflects our troubled economic times!
Anyone who actually consumes the entire 4,800-calorie burger in one sitting will receive....
a free health care insurance policy?
A lifetime tub of Tums?
A hectare of Handi-Wipes?
A pallet of Prozac?
A Michigan hospital room named in their memory?
Nope. The eater will receive, we kid you not, a tee shirt. We wonder what the T shirt will say?
