• Okay, it is Tuesday today, but work with me. A cafe an Australia has claimed to have cooked the world’s biggest burger. Tipping the scales at 178 pounds and weighing in with fixins at 90 kg (198 lb), it beat the previously held record of 84 kg and it required four men to flip the damn thing. The end result consisted of “the giant beef patty, 120 eggs, 150 slices of cheese, 1.5 kg of beetroot, 2.5 kg of tomatoes and almost 2 kg of lettuce all topped off with a special sauce on a giant sesame seed bun” and was eaten by the cafe’s employees. According to the rules laid out by Guinness, the burger must be on the menu for one year and will sell for $1,220 American. I heard the burger will be served with a Rolaids tablet the size of a standard car tire. [Yahoo!/Reuters]
