I had some kind of hybrid laugh/choke thing happen when I read the title.

Can't believe that article... People actually go there to eat this stuff? I mean, voluntarily?

Colour me confused...

I don't think I could even physically contain something that had 9982 calories.

I think it's safe to say that if you have a history of serious heart disease, you should be hitting the gym, moderating fat intake, going to your doctor regularly, avoiding drugs/alcohol, and taking a statin if your cholesterol numbers are high.

Then again, this guy may have been convinced that he couldn't live a long life because his parents didn't make it past middle-age, so he enjoyed himself while he could.

Either way, I feel bad for his family and friends.

At least they can't be sued for false advertising.

I would try it too. I think the problem is when people become regular customers going there weekly or even daily. That's either ignorance or a deadly indifference at work so I place the blame primarily on the customer.

Apparently he was a daily customer. I can't believe he ate one of those a day. How... Arrghh

Just a normal burger for me, thanks

On rare occasion I'll treat myself to a large restaurant burger. I wouldn't even try a burger from that place. I don't like my Burgers that disgustingly greasy. I like my burgers right at the fine line between too dry and just moist enough, about 90% or so lean ground beef
That junk looks like 50% fat. yuck

It isn't irony, it's just a coincidence.

I always call back to a George Carlin bit (or maybe I read it in one of his books):

A diabetic is driving to the hospital to get more insulin when he is hit by a truck and killed. If the truck was carrying sugar, it's a coincidence. If the truck was carrying insulin, it's irony.

I had assumed the restaurant owner was being sarcastic by naming it a heart attack grill. Well kudos to them for living up to the name.

But if the truck is full of ice cream, and the diabetic dives in face first and eats all the Rocky Road he can stuff down his throat, and then dies of diabetic shock.....*that's* the parable that describes what we're talking about regarding the Heart Attack Grill.

She wouldn't be nearly enough to hide the fact that those burgers are too big to fit in my jaws. If you have to break down your burger to eat it, it's not really a burger anymore.
