i'll have the triple bypass burrito, please.

Now, I'm not a health Nazi, and I think people ought to be able to stuff their faces with whatever they want (as long as I don't have to pay for their HoverRounds and triple bypass operations), but a thousand-calorie burrito for breakfast strikes me as a bit excessive. But, hey, whatever floats your boat.

Ah, Hardees. At least they're honest about their food. Mickey D's and Burger King pretend to have healthy choices on the menu just because you can choose "light" dressing for your fried chicken salad, or get the sprogs a 2% milk with their fat-fried Happy Meal. Hardee's, on the other hand, just said "fuck it", and started cranking out calorie and fat bombs in a refreshingly unapologetic manner. Home of the Monster Thickburger...and now the Country Breakfast Burrito, loaded with almost a thousand calories and sixty grams of fat. The ingredient list: two egg omelets, bacon, sausage, ham, cheddar, hash browns, and a healthy drenching of sausage gravy.

God bless America.

I wonder how many calories and fat grams you'd consume if you had one of those puppies for breakfast along with a large coffee with extra cream and sugar, and then went for the Monster Thickburger with curly fries and a 20-ounce non-diet soda for lunch.
