That's the guy they showed on Supersize Me, isn't it?
I can't imagine eating even one of those, much less 23k!

Seriously!

I found the saddest line in the article this one: "He says hes in love with the burgers, which are the highlights of his days." First off, note that it doesn't say he loves the burgers. It says he is in love with them. Second, what a miserable life he must lead if eating a burger, eating just about anything, is the highlight of his day.

Who are we to pass judgment on this poor wretch of a man? It's obvious he's not a member of this esteemed and learned assembly. If he were, we could have steered him back on the straight and narrow path of healthy eating. But, alas, he is destined for a life of "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun" to the tune of 1.75 per day.

He looks like he stepped out of a 1970's time capsule. Long hair and major 'burns.
