Colossal World Record Hamburger: 777 Pounds! Happy 4th Of July!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A California man says he smashed the record for the world`s biggest burger, creating one that weighed in at 777 pounds, including bun, cheese and condiments.

Brett Enright of Phoenix grilled up the huge burger at the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton, Calif., Saturday, the Contra Costa Times of Walnut Creek, Calif., reported."

This monster burger can feed an entire football team, or a couple of cheerleaders if they are Oprah Winfrey and Rosie O`Donnell.

Small pieces of the colossal burger were sold for 99 cents, with the proceeds going to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. I wouldn`t eat a piece of that humongous burger; I don`t imagine that a lot of care was taken to make it taste good.

I don`t want any part of that giant burger, but on this 4th of July I will certainly grill and eat at least a couple of burgers.

Happy Independence Day to all my readers.
