Extreme Eating

I don't do a lot of this.  In fact, I never do this.  I tried.  Once.

Columbus Ohio.  The Thurman Burger @ the Thurman Cafe

I was on the US Tour w/ Blowfly.  And we had a meal to grab before heading to whatever seedy and under-attended venue we were scheduled to haunt.

I couldn't finish even half of it.  Tom Bowker probably could have but then forget him working the load in.... right. Like that ever happened.  I think I called him a goldbricker, or more correctly:  referred to his "gold bricking ass".  Never saw him climb stairs w/ a trap kit faster than that.. or ever.. again.  There's a great movie about the group's antics in Europe.  I don't think they covered the fist fight at the end of it.  A shame.  Anyway, there's a classic scene at the end of the documentary where you see Tom & Clarence (Blowfly) futilely strategizing how to break back into the active charts.  Beautiful!

Back to the burger.  Their menu lists it as "overloaded with ham, mozzarella, american cheese, lettuce, tomato, mushrooms, sauteed onions, pickle, peppers, and mayo with chips and a pickle spear."  You can kinda see in the picture I had an egg on mine, too.  Just Nuts.  It was good, though.  The burger had a lot of flavor for one that size and the toppings are all high quality and seasoned.  I would have preferred real cheese, but I guess the Philly style cheese sauce is pretty common and acceptable these days.  Sure is runny though.

So right after I did my first posts, Ca$$ius (that's Ca$$ius Casio KRS lejuan Love Sebastian Bacherach de la Fenderr Rrhodes to the ShuttleLOUNGEr's out there), brought up the folks over at Epic Meal Time.  These guys make extreme food you can't really conceive of until they do it.  It's grotesque.  And amazing.  A little bit gay.  Maybe a lot gay.  I don't know.  It's probably better when you're stoned.  Their Boss Bacon Burger and Breakfast of Booze episodes are classic, though.  Give those two a watch, go yak & then take a nap.

-Zum Essen!
