My cholestrol went up just reading about this! Friendly's Burger
Yes, the latest assault on America's waistline comes in the form of Friendly's recently launched Grilled Cheese BurgerMelt. Move over, Double Down, there's a new "something with far more calories than bread as a bun" sandwich in town.

3. Why do people do this to themselves?
That's like death on a plate.

4. Were I at Friendly's, I'd be busy loading up on Fribbles.
A Fribble might make me question my veganity.

7. I remember a few years back KFC
was promoting a new entree, the name escapes me.

It was a large bowl of mashed potatos, corn, fried chicken and gravy, topped with cheese.

They may as well have called it Kentucky Kardiac King.

11. My dad insisted on homemade burgers tonight. They were huge. I can actually feel my cholesterol

12. That comes with a free hydraulic press, correct?
If I'm actually going to eat this thing, it's got to be squished somehow so I can get it in my mouth. I figure you hit the thing with a couple tons of pressure and it'll be mouth-sized in seconds.

15. I never understand people's reactions to stuff like this
All that really boils down to is a cheeseburger plus a grilled cheese sandwich, alot of food sure, but for someone who is really hungry, not out of the question.

And none of it is deep fried, either. That's really the only problem with it :D
