The Baconator

Today, on my way home to clean my house from top to bottom (It's pretty gross--exceptionally gross even. Ask me about my cat Toga and the "poop incident") before my weekend guests arrive, I stopped at Wendy's. When I'm feeling fat and happy and I head to Wendy's I splurge and get the Big Bacon Classic, sans ketchup. As I pulled up, the menu item on the super value menu usually reserved for my bacony delight was replaced with "The Baconator".

If you're not familiar with this artery clogging monster, it's described on Wendy's site as...
"Six bacon slices piled high atop two1/4 lb. fresh, never frozen, burger patties. Complete with American cheese and mayonnaise dressing on our signature premium bun. Go on, obsess a little."
Who needs that!!!!? I couldn't order that... It's called the Baconator. It's on the list of fast food items I'll never eat--with the Hardee's monstrosity burger. Six bacon slices... dear God.

If you ate this burger while taking that new diet pill Alli... you know, the one that doesn't let you absorb 1/3 of the fat in your food and can cause explosive diarrhea... you would shit your pants for sure.

Mmm... I had The Baconater last week. I'm a pretty non-discriminating fast food eater, though. But even I can't eat the Hardee's burgers. They're too, too much.

Oh my gosh, I would explode.... 51 grams of fat??? How can that even be legal?

Yeah, I'm not really shocked by much of anything fast food wise anymore. A large Sonic chocolate milkshake--my favorite thing to get there--packs in 920 calories and 27 grams of fat. I think The Baconater was at least more filling.

Also, I should probably go to the gym.

The Hardee's Monster Thickburger has something 110 grams of fat. The Baconator looks like the old Monster burger, before Hardee's went to the big-boy patties.

I used to take down the old Monster burger with regularity in college, so The Baconator shouldn't be too bad. I might take it on during my trip to Illinois Thursday.

Last night I had a baconator. 24 hrs of suffering.
