Wait, This is BAD For Me?


The internet was abuzz a few weeks ago with the 4,800 calorie burger due to be offered by the West Michigan Whitecaps minor league baseball team and now a vegan advocacy group is trying to get in on the action.

The 4-pound, $20 burger features five beef patties, five slices of cheese, nearly a cup of chili and liberal doses of salsa and corn chips — all on an 8-inch bun looks, sounds and most likely is absolutely delicious, if also terrifyingly nauseating.

Susan Levin, a staff dietitian for the Washington-based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, disagrees, and so she sent a letter to the Grand Rapids minor-league team on Tuesday asking that the 4,800-calorie burger be labeled a “dietary disaster” that increases the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Um, no shit! Do these vegans think that anyone looking at that burger would believe that it was healthy or good for you in any possible way? For chrissakes, it weighs 4 pounds! I mean, look at the thing, it screams out “HEART ATTACK,” but if you’re too retarded to know that in the first place do you really think a warning is going to make any difference. I don’t think anyone is at the food stand deciding between a hot dog or this monstrosity and then comparing calories. If you’re gonna order this behemoth, you know it walking in the gates. But of course, the vegans are too busy thinking they’re better than everyone else and so are trying to make news with this story. I’d like a warning to be attached to all vegan food from now on, “Warning: eating this does not equal eating real food and is likely to make you a sanctimonious asshole that no one wants to be around. Also, we make the fake meats look like real meat because you know you’d rather eat the deliciousness that is real food instead.”

The team has no intention of removing the item or putting a warning on.
