Another one from the wonderful world of gross-out food challenges: Burger Jones introduces the 10,000 (!!) calorie "Meat Your Maker":
"LEVEL ONE: A bun, grilled with cheese and bacon. It supports a 7 oz. cheeseburger, chicken fried bacon, chili cheese dog-burger, 7 oz. cheeseburger, and chicken-fried bacon.
LEVEL TWO: Grilled cheese with bacon, a 7 oz. cheeseburger, chicken fried bacon, chili cheese dog-burger, 7 oz. cheeseburger, and chicken-fried bacon.
LEVEL THREE: Grilled cheese with bacon, a fried egg, cooked to order, topped with onion rings and garnished - no, crowned - with Faribault Creamery cheese curds."
Apparently the thing costs $25 (not including medical care, Parasole is quick to point out), but if anyone can finish it within an hour, they'll get a T-shirt and/or $20 gift card. Here's the ridiculous fake waiver contestants are supposed to sign:
