MEGASIZE ME!


The other morning I spotted this train ad
for the tallest meat construction I ever saw for commercial sale
(note the fluffiness of bun, the tenderness of lettuce,
the softness of cheese, remeniscent of fat hanging over a belt),
though the looming Megateriyaki was no svelte offering.
I remember when I thought a Big Mac was huge
and before that, when a burger and fries was a meal...
I suppose in another two years it'll be six burgers high, and then eight...
Are the jaws widening as the bodies do?

Robert,
I cannot imagine how much one of these monsters costs. How many yen? How many people would one of these feed?

I'm assuming they're each for one person, but I have no real idea of the cost -- several dollars, I should imagine. If they're still offering them (i.e., haven't been sued for in-shop heart attacks or public obesity aforethought), when next I'm near one of the shops I'll check the price and post it here.
