The Food News Diet Plan

In case last week’s note about the bar serving a hot dog wrapped in a beef patty that’s deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions, and served on a hoagie bun…then topped with a fried egg and fries wasn’t the appetite suppressant you thought it would be, there’s more:

– A pub in Clearfield, PA is selling the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, a 10.5-lb burger that comes with 25 slices of cheese, a head of lettuce, three tomatoes, two onions, a cup-and-a-half each of mayonnaise, relish, ketchup, mustard and banana peppers — and a bun. It costs $30 and if you eat it within three hours you get a T-shirt, a certificate, and the burger free. Stomach pump extra.

– Peruvian officials rescued 4,000 endangered frogs from a slaughterhouse where they were waiting to become frog cocktails. The drinks are popular in Lima because they’re supposedly an aphrodisiac. Maybe, but only if you use a breath mint after drinking it.

– Police in Clovis, NM were called to Marshall Junior High school because of reports that a student came to school carrying a long, wrapped package that might be a weapon. Police put armed officers on rooftops, closed nearby streets, and locked down the school. The search was called off when it turned out that eighth-grader Michael Morrissey had come to school with a 30-inch burrito filled with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos wrapped inside tin foil and a white T-shirt. It was a non-lethal class project. Too bad the science fair wasn’t that day.
