It’s The Egg That Makes It

I’m off to the country today. In the meantime, in my quest to bring you the best (worst) examples of North American culinary excess, I present the Lady’s Brunch Burger— and yes indeedy, that’s a glazed donut.

A back-of-the-envelope calculation of nutritional value shows an astonishing 1366 calories and 36g of fat — excluding condiments. I’m guessing anyone who finds this appetizing is already on metformin and a calcium channel blocker.

Or Homer Simpson:

[Homer gasping for air due to being so out of shape]

TV Announcer: We take eighteen ounces of sizzling ground beef, and soak it in rich, creamery butter, then we top it off with bacon, ham, and a fried egg. We call it “The Good Morning Burger”.

[Homer starts gurgling in ecstasy]

(The Simpsons “Bart’s Friend Falls in Love”, 1992)

Life imitating art, or what? Or reality catching up to satire?

    Holy cath lab batman! That’s one greasy concoction!
    However, I do feel bad judging because I was at an Indian wedding last weekend and I’m sure I’ve already clogged most of my LCA by eating ungodly amounts of butter chicken. Damn, that stuff is good *starts gurgling in ecstasy*
