World Record Hamburger: 185 Pounds! Perfect For Rosie O'Donnell

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A Michigan restaurant owner says going for a Guinness world record for the largest commercially available hamburger was a matter of patriotism.

rosie odonnellSteve Mallie, owner of Mallie`s Sports Grill & Bar in Southgate, Mich., said he decided to attempt a record burger when he read the current mark for the world`s largest was held by Thailand, The Detroit News reported Sunday.

`I said, `Wait a minute. Hamburgers are American. Why should the record be in Thailand?` So I decided to try to break the record myself,` Mallie explained." UPI.Com

My guess is that it was publicity for his restaurant and not patriotism that inspired Mallie to create the largest commercially available hamburger. The colossus is 185.8 lbs and is available for a paltry $499.

But I agree with Mallie that the record should be held by an American, there is nothing more American than a hamburger. America is the land of milk and honey and gigantic burgers, nothing symbolizes the extravagance of our country like a 185 lb burger.

Thailand should have the record for the world`s biggest cup of noodles. A Mallie humongous burger would feed a family of seven in Thailand for a month.

If I were a condemned criminal I wouldn`t mind having a 185 pound burger as my last meal, the warden would have to postpone my execution until I finished the damn thing.
