Truly an absolutely ridiculous burger

Steve Mallie doesn't just make a big burger. His is the "Absolutely Ridiculous Burger." The owner of Mallie's Sports Bar and Grill in suburban Detroit is laying claim to the world record for the "largest hamburger commercially available." His 134-pounder is made with beef, bacon and cheese, and comes on a bun that weighs 50 pounds all by itself. The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report the giant burger sells for $350 and takes three guys to flip while cooking. Authenticating Mallie's record claim could take a few weeks.
