A group of drunken pals went to an In-N-Out burger shop on Hallowe'en 2004 and demanded a burger with 100 patties, setting some sort of gluttony record at the burger joint. In-N-Out is justly famous for making excellent fast-food burgers in an open kitchen, and for allowing customers to order as many patties as they'd like, at $1 per patty. The tale told on this website details the attempt of eight people to eat $100 worth of discount fried beef and
# Total calories (extrapolating from info provided here): 19490 caloriesLink (Thanks, Michael!)
# Total eaters 8 (2 girls and one guy who already ate dinner and only ate 6 patties)
# Most patties eaten by one person : I think I ate about 20. I think Nalin ate about 20 as well (including the raw ones)
# Time to finish : less then 2 hours
# Number of people who barfed : 1 (way to go Elena!) Oh yeah.... nothing says "Vegas baby" like barfing, not because of booze..but because of burgers.
Update: Adrian sez, "In-N-Out uses 100% real American cheese, not 'processed cheese food'." He also says that In-N-Out's beef is pretty good, but I've had their burgers and while the beef is better than BK or McD's, it's hardly ground sirloin.
Update 2: Sandeep sez, "American cheese IS processed cheese food!
Update 3: Brad sez, "Kraft American Cheese Slices are *not* 'processed cheese food.' It is 'processed cheese.' Looks the same, but there is a real difference: 'Processed cheese food' is a 'food product' *ulp* containing 'processed cheese.' Simply put, there is not enough sawdust, lint, whey or cow toenail emulsion in Kraft slices to (de)merit the lower grade."
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
