I found this story by checking out the Twitter feeds of people who subscribe to my Twitter account. (My Twitter name, by the way, is @empoprises.) I was off Gmail for a couple of days, so it took me a bit to realize that @zentropikCEO was following me. @zentropikCEO is described as follows:
CEO. Professional Philosopher. Online Dating Expert. Social Media Neophyte. Just your basic twitterer. All the usual flaws plus a few you’ve never heard of.
But when I check out someone who's following me on Twitter, I check out their feeds above all else. And here's what I found on this feed:
U.S. ballpark to sell 4,800 calorie burger http://is.gd/p18s
The link went to a Physorg piece:
In an apparent bid to cook up some comfort food during hard economic times, the West Michigan Whitecaps are offering fans a behemoth dubbed the Fifth Third Burger, named after the team's ballpark and the meal's five beef patties, which each weigh one third of a pound (136 grams).
The burger is smothered with chili, salsa, sour cream and a dollop of melted nacho-style cheese -- topped off with Frito chips, lettuce, tomato and five slices of American cheese and laid out in a bun made with a pound (454 grams) of dough.
Buzzfeed sets us straight on the math:
Named after the bank that sponsors the ballpark of the West Michigan Whitecaps, the Fifth Third burger weighs in at 5/3 pounds....
Buzzfeed also points out that the burger costs $20 and feeds "one to four people."
Fifth Third Bank's website doesn't feature the burger on its corporate website, instead showing it slogan:
Well, this burger is certainly someone's dream...
