What would it take to get a hamburger to cost more than $100? Would you have to seek out the most exotic and rare beef in the world?

Have you tried a Google search? Have you found The Top 10 Most Expensive Burgers in the World? Have you dreamed of eating a burger than weighs in at 153.6kg and ~540,000 calories?

Admittedly, the most expensive burger actually isn't since the Fleur packages the burger with an expensive bottle of wine. And the Fleur restaurant still has not re-opened.

How much discount will be offered if I take only the bottle of wine?

For $70, why not have the hamburger too?

(After doing a conversion to U.S. pounds and discovering that the burger weighs 338.7 pounds) How would I be able to eat a burger that weighs more than I do? Wouldn't that be more of a nightmare rather than a dream?

Perhaps if you thought of it as a shared dream? You do have 250 close friends to share that burger with?

How would you properly cook such a burger? Wouldn't it take hours, if not days, to fully cook it? Would friends be willing to wait that long?

Does the website not say it takes up to 22 hours to make?

Quote:
Another mockery of the same idea is the creation of Mallies Sports Grill & Bar in Michigan, US, called The Absolutely Ridiculous Burger. It weighs 338.6 pounds and it’s made from 30 pounds of bacon, 30 pounds of tomatoes, 36 pounds of cheese and 15 pounds of lettuce.

Making the huge burger takes up to 22 hours. It contains no less than 540,000 calories, it takes 3 strong men to lift it and we’re wondering how many to eat it. As the name properly suggests, the burger is absolutely ridiculous, but it’s in their menu, so whoever wants to order it, they’ve got the option.

As to what they’ll do with it afterwards it’s just up to them. And the guys don’t do home delivery. The price for this enormous burger is a jaw dropping $1,999.
Could you not consider it the perfect treat for the large gathering you are hosting for the next statutory holiday?

With the large gathering needed to consume that massive burger wouldn't we also have to invite several Medical Personnel to deal with the medical fallout of people who are eating parts of that massive burger? In turn, wouldn't the Medical Personnel need Medical Personnel to help them after they attempt to consume part of the massive burger? Wouldn't it be better to just have a small gathering with a smaller set of burgers? Should White Castle be called in to cater?

I thought the USA was now wide open again with no limits on the size of gatherings?

Admittedly, I am wondering about your friends that you automatically thought that a gathering of them would require medical personnel in large quantities? Have you ever read Birds, Beasts and Relatives by Gerald Durrell? Are your friends spiritual cousins of hedgehogs and you a spiritual cousin of his sister Margo?

Wouldn't it be better to keep 'The Handbook of Hedgehogs' handy?

While I have a copy of The Hedgehog Handbook, where can I find a copy of 'The Handbook of Hedgehogs'?

Would not knowing of the book Birds, Beasts and Relatives by Gerald Durrell be a reason not to read it? Could it be related to The Hedgehog's Dilemma mentioned in the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion?

How could I have a large gathering of friends when I don't have that many friends (less than a dozen)? Wouldn't that mean that I'd harm my friends since they'd each have to eat a massive amount of the burger? Could that be the end of many friendships?

Would a better option be to invite Godzilla to the thread? Wouldn't the massive burger be a small, tasty snack for him? Wouldn't it relieve the residents of Tokyo?

Isn't that one and the same thing with a little twist of tongue?

Perhaps you should read the book and then ask your questions? Might you be amazed by the resemblance between the 4 hedgehogs and your friends after the feast?

Is Godzilla not a vegan these days?
