Denny's 6 pound burger... would you dare try to eat it within 3 hours?

Just found this again on Snopes (a site about urban legends). I remember the offer being made a long while back, though. So far only one person has managed to do it. Would any of you even think of topping her time of 2 hours and 54 minutes?

I can imagine what my body would do if I tried it…

Brain: “Yeah! Go for it man!”
Heart: “Just try it! One bite out of that thing, and I'm just gonna quit!”

Correction on the title: The Denny's mentioned is a beer pub, not the national chain of food restaurants we all know of. :)

Ugh. I know contests like this exist, but it seems like such a terrible idea. I wouldn't try. Also, aren't the rules of these things usually that if you finish it it's free, but if you don't it costs you, like, $50+?

The rules vary from place to place, but yes, generally, if you finish, it's free and you might win some cash or free food for a month. Otherwise, whatever it costs, if you don't finish, you pay for it, yes.

I just can't imagine myself entering one of these contests. I mean, sometimes the food looks delicious but the grease factor alone would make me sick. :dizzy:

Hell yes I'd try it. The greasier the better in my opinion.


2 hours and 54 minutes? I'd do it in half an hour, a full hour at the most.

I've entered a few eating contests, I won of course. I could eat a whole cow. Alive. And have room for pudding afterwards.

Once I entered in a contest that you had to eat a 5-pound burger, and a 2-pound side of fries. I didn't eat three days before it, and I actually ate all of it. Still got my picture on the wall for that.

I used to wait tables in college at this place called Judge Beans and we had a five pound burger—lots of people you'd never expect could eat The Big Texan (as it was called.) Then again, I did see several families order it and eat it like a pizza.

Always reminds me of The Great Outdoors and the 'Ole 96er.

When you think about it, it's better to be skinny when going into an eating contest. Having a lot of fat will actually keep your stomach from expanding enough to take in all that food…

And don't really skinny people have very high metabolisms? (Shaggy from the Scooby Doo cartoons, anyone?)

you gotta use the diet coke. i've gone buffet hopping with some polynesian guys and man they swear by it. it's supposed to dissolve the food in your belly a bit, but dont drink too much or it takes up room.

I don't know how good it is at dissolving food, but the artificial sweetener in it is much better than sugar at dissolving your teeth. ;)

I'm pretty good proof against those arguments, skinny people are inferior eaters.

Actually, It's better to be skinny. The weight DOES keep your stomach from expanding properly. The problem is, you need to have a wicked high metabolism, or else be used to expanding your stomach beyond its normal limits. But, it's easier for a skinny person who has trained to get their stomach looser.

Now, that said, big people have more experience telling their stomach to stop complaining, or even ignoring the amount of food they've eaten. That is, Big folks who don't have a genetic reason for being pudgy.

I once ate a 3 pound burger, with fries and a small fruit salad. This was for my 21st birthday, and at the end, I had a lot of family and friends staring at me while I was getting the last few bites down.

…I really don't recommend eating those huge meals if you're inexperienced in overeating, or you'll puke like the guy in Supersize me after eating a quarterpounder with cheese.

I'm thinking I would fast for a few days before trying it. And afterwards exercise my bum off.

In St. Louis I went to go eat “the pointersaurus” at Pointer's Pizza. It's a 42 inch 8 pound pizza and if you and one other person can eat it in under two hours you get $500. My partner chickened out when they told us we had to get 3 meat toppings. Ah well I KNOW i coulda done it!

Take the onion out, and I'd eat it. But then eat nothing but salad, and other healthy food for the next week.

The thought of having the one six pound burger is nauseating… maybe if they seperated it?

id do it as a matter of a fact i just ate like 5 qtr pounders in a single show (30 mins) and was even distracted by the show sure thats only like 1 and 1/4 of a pound but i still wanted more (would have eatin more to if my mom said i didnt have to save any for my sister who wouldnt be home for the next hour any way) im also one of thughs people who think that chugging a gallon of milk in 1 hour isnt hard (being as i usualy take out about 1/3 of the gallon in one sitting any way)
RIP TD :cry2:
