This is what it's like to eat a 20,000 calorie burger

Or try to, at least.

ACCORDING TO HEART Attack Grill owner Jon Basso, death has been good for his restaurant’s business.

The Las Vegas diner is renowned for its ridiculously calorific fried foods that have contributed to the death at 29 of its spokesman.

This is a triple bypass burger. Wei ordered an octuple bypass. As in, eight patties. It’s four pounds of beef, 40 strips of bacon, cheese, chilli, tomato and onion. And two buns that are there seemingly to give the impression that this is still a burger despite not being anything like one.

Octuple

The size makes the logistics of eating it a bit…tricky.

Eating

Weighing in at 20,000 calories, it is enough to fill 10 days calories for most regular sized humans. So, could Wei finish it?

Nope:

Leg it

Which is probably for the best.
