Damn, just look at those buns. And I'm not normally into guys with grey hair!
America -- in one word: excessive. In two: excessive eaters. Which is why it should come as no surprise that the world's largest hamburger was created over the holiday weekend at the Alameda County Fair here in California. There are no more cows on Old MacDonald's farm.
Juicy's Outlaw Burger...was 600 pounds, or a small cow's weight, of beef, 30 pounds of lettuce, 20 pounds of onions, and 12 pounds of pickles, all wrapped like a happy hulking family inside a 110-pound bun.
After the ketchup-squirting ceremony, fair visitors were allowed to purchase pieces of the burger for 99Â¢ a serving, which, I imagine, was just 1/2 pound of ground beef for most people. Me? I asked for mine in all pickles. Then I went back for seconds and scraped all the burnt charcoal-y parts off the bottom. THAT'S RIGHT, READERS -- I'M PREGNANT!!!!!1 Jk jk, just fat and weird.
Hit the jump for several more shots of the 1.3-MILLION calorie burger.

Thanks to Towen, who once grilled himself a 10-lb burger but the middle didn't cook and he got diarrhea after eating it anyways. Tough break.
