My Star Burger Makes The List

Laura's favorite burger to hate on, The Baconater, made Consumerist's list of the "5 Most Butt-Blimping Fast Food Burgers." Despite all the hatred being heaped on this luscious pile of meat, I still contend that The Baconater is delicious fare. I have not, however, eaten The Baconater in six-plus months as I have no interest in attaining double-wide size status.

Congratulations on making the list. Is it true that photo you used shows only half of a Baconator because Blogger has limits on the number of calories per page?

I'm amazed that the baconator is actually the healthiest of the butt-blimping options. That's just incredible.

Also incredible is this other story in Men's Health, via Consumerist, on the unhealthiest food in America. 2,900 calories! That's more than 2 Baconators, even though it's all vegetables and dairy (wink)!

Anyone tried this tasty dish yet? That article is like a dare!

Hells yeah, I've totally eaten that app. I've "shared" it with Rob, and by share, of course I mean that I ate a minimum of 75 percent of the dish. I knew it was crazy fatty, but I had no idea that many calories were packed into it.

My world is rocked. I love that appetizer... I can almost taste it. This is more devastating than the Chipotle calculator.

Aussie Cheese Fries. Highly recommended with a pint of Foster's. I had no idea that was "the worst food on Earth."

And sorry, I would never eat anything that is called the "Quad Stacker."

That's hilarious you've all eaten the world's unhealthiest food.
The quad stacker sounds like some kind of weightlifting, doesn't it? (As in, "Oh man, my legs are killing me! I just did 10 reps on the quad stacker.")
Sounds healthy to me!

Just looking at the picture gives me an upset stomach.... Yikes.

The first Baconator i ever got tasted like salt. I didn't come close to finishing it. I think for their next big thing, Wendy's should release the Baconator 2. It will just be a salt lick. no bun or anything. Nobody will notice.

Walter, I think you have a future in advertising. Or product development involving salt blocks.
