    Heart attack? I think so.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    There was a bar in Topeka called Seabrook Tavern that served a 3-pound "Speck" burger. I ordered one when I was in college, and it was terrible. Cheap meat overcooked in a skillet. Couldn't even finish half of it.

    I would've loved to see the film of that 100 lb college student eating the 5+ lb predecessor

    The one above is just too absurd. It needs to be physically possible to eat it.

    "a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard"

    I like mayo on sandwiches, but the thought of eating 12 oz. (a soda can) of it at one time is unsettling. The cup of ketchup seems more do-able, somehow.

    You keep making comments like that, SunDeck, and you might end up having to move there.

    I always wondered about that.

    There were an awful lot of nurse's uniforms laying around the place...
