Geez, some dude ate a 15lb. burger; Pepto-Bismol stocks soar

This guy ate a 15 lb. burger and lived to tell about it. The “Beer Barrell Belly Buster”  weighs 20+ pounds after buns and toppings, and 21-year-old Brad Scuillo, a chef just wanted to see “if he could do it.”

Oh well, you’d thunk that he would know better. We used to laugh at dweebs like this when I cooked for a living.  Here’s a clip for those who remember the “OL 96’er.”

This 1,528 lb. gourd won the largest pumpkin award in a contest held in Pleasant Bay, California.

The grower of this prodigiuos vegetable,Oregon native Thad Starr, grew on last year that weighed only four pounds less.

More here. Yeah, I know. It’s a slow  food news day.
