A real “Hungry Man” dinner


When he woke up Wednesday morning, Richard Clifford didn’t know he had a date with 9½ pounds of meaty destiny.

Density is more like it.  Here’s the dimensions of the “tower of power.”

…measures a foot across and more than 5 inches high…The burger features 4½ pounds of beef, a pound of cheddar, five tomatoes, two onions, a head of lettuce and a cup-and-a-half of mayonnaise.

If anyone wants to try to eat that thing, let me know.  I wanna see it with my own eyes.

  1. I don’t even think I could have devoured that thing when I was 11, complete with a metabolism that got me banned from four separate restaurants, allegedly “all-you-can-eat” joints that got nervous when the skinny white kid went up for an eleventh helping of the entire Cantonese section. I once ate like I was supplying fuel for multiple quantum singularities, and never gained a pound.

    This would have given me pause. And now it is nothing but a fond what-if scenario.
