A friend of mine is living in Japan right now and he said that he was going to get one. I hope he lives through it.

Life imitates art?

I can't imagine it being too bad though, because I would assume it is the same as the BK Stackers. They realized that if they sold burgers with three or four patties, they would be too big and dangerous, so they used the McDonald's technique of smaller patties. I had a Quad Stacker once, and it was only about as filling as a standard (full size) fast food double cheeseburger, or a regular cheeseburger from a place like Chili's. I can only imagine that this is the same way, but either way it looks delicious.

Whoops, that didn't turn out right. I didn't know you could post pictures in the comments section...

Only 2500 calories? I don't understand why the monotony of the patties isn't spruced up with something in between them. Would this even fit in one of their shopping carts?

qld they didn't want to mess up the cholesterol delivery with something healthy, like a lettuce leaf.

Thanks for noticing, Patty. As a matter of fact, I am a currently unpublished author. I am kind of taking my time with submiting because I am thinking about finding a good agent first. But, yes; I have essentially been writing since childhood.

i have been a staunch supporter of my best friend's writting since we were kids too. she is also still unpublished but her book is, in my opinion, excellent. i have always believed it will happen for her one day and i still do. best of luck mw, when you are published let me know so i can read your work. also when you have some luck with your agent search i'd love some pointers to pass along. i'm on the members list here.
