Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/04/2005: Monster Hangie-Bur Stories...

As an addendum to Len’s previous post about the “Ye Olde 96er” 6 lb “monster burger” (actually eaten in its entirety by one hapless female diner) are these new “Biggest Burger” Stories making the news from Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub - in Clearfield, PA, and not part of the Denny’s franchise restaurant chain -- on AOL and CNN about their 15 lb Beer Barrel Belly Buster.

This $30 monster burger is “FREE” for any two people who can finish it in one sitting as their meal.

The "title" appears to be "safe" for the feat claimed by Ms. Kate Stelnick, 19, of Princeton, NJ, in successfully scarfing an entire Ye Olde 96er. So far, they claim no Belly Buster has YET been successfully demolished.

So Len’s Burger Story still takes the cake, and the salad, and the appetizer, and the knosh….Oh, you know what I mean!!

And here are a few other other monster sandwiches like the Hardee Burger.

[The coinage of "Hangie-Bur" goes to my Nephew, Patrick, who was approx. 3 yrs old at the time-- He was hungry on a long drive home "trapped' in traffic on an expressway in Houston. Undaunted by his mother's attempts to explain there was no way to exit the expressway to get him an immediate snack, he just kept shouting, "I WANT a Hangie-Bur!!! I WANT it NOW!!" -- as only a three year old can. LOL]

So, occassionally, we go out for "Hangie-Burs" too. :-)
