Japanese Man Orders Burger With 1,050 Slices Of Bacon!
So, Burger King Japan has been running a very American special lately. For only a $1.25 you can add an extra whopping 15 slices of bacon to your Whopper. I don't know about you, but that seems like a mighty fine deal to me. But of course this being Japan, you know someone had to take it to the extreme. That someone is know as Mr. Sato, a reporter for Rocket News 24. He ordered a burger with an extra 1,050 slices of bacon. Total cost? Ninety bucks. The total cost does not include future medical expenses such as, coronary angioplasty, triple bypass surgery or artificial robot heart. You know Japan is totally working on a robot heart right now!
1,050 slices of bacon. 3 1/4 iPhones high.
I mean can you believe that beast? I love me some bacon but even I have to draw the line at consuming a whole pig belly in one sitting. And the bacon-flavored toothpaste. That sh*t looks nasty.
The burger took the fine people at Burger King over two hours to assemble, weighed nearly 6 pounds and had approximately 14,300 calories. YOWZA! Here's a look at Mr. Sato before he attempts to consume his publicity stunt, I mean his lunch. I guess he's praying to the god of iron stomachs?
Where does he store all his fat? In his arteries??
It's probably needless to say that Mr. Sato was unable to finish the whole 'burger'. He only got about halfway through before he had to run to the little boy's room hand over mouth. But hey, that's still an impressive–not sure if that's the right word–feat! That's about 500 slices of bacon, yo! His co-workers happily devoured the rest. So he got it his way! Unfortunately he paid the barfy price. But not the ULTIMATE price. That would be this dude:
Here's a video of Mr. Sato attempting to eat the Holy Grail of bacon burgers: [WARNING: This may make you never want to consume bacon again!!!]
