You want fries with that?


You may have seen the story of a Pennsylvania pub that serves an unusual item on the menu: a six-pound hamburger. It run $23.95, but they offer to pick up the tab if anyone can eat it in under three hours.

Since its inception in 1998, no one was able to collect. But then Kate Stelnick brought in her appetite. Kate, 19, is a 100-pound college student that conquered Ye Olde 96er (6lbs = 96 ounces) in 2 hours 56 minutes.

Keep in mind that it's not just the meat. As the article says:
In addition to the meat, contestants much eat one large onion, two whole tomatoes, one half head of lettuce, 1 1/4 pounds of cheese, two buns, and a cup each of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, relish, banana peppers and some pickles.

Hmm... You think she's any relation to Mr. Creosote?
