Thumbkin Thursday to you all, my little gingersnaps. I've featured the "Heart Attack Grill" on here before, and their famous 'Triple Bypass Burger'. Well guess what? A customer was half-way through his 6000 calorie burger when he started having a heart attack. The chain owner (and former nutritionist) said tourists were taking photos of the man while he was being removed by the paramedics. Oh by the way, if you weigh over 350 pounds, you get to eat for free at the 'Heart Attack Grill'.
So if you're over that weight and feeling adventurous... maybe you should eat a salad and go for a walk.
Man Suffers Heart Attack While Eating ‘Triple Bypass Burger’ at Heart Attack Grill
An unidentified man suffered
cardiac arrest a heart attack while eating a meal called a "Triple Bypass Burger" at the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas on Saturday.
Who saw this coming from a fast food franchise with a "Taste Worth Dying For!" slogan and an entrance sign that reads "If you come in this place, it's going to kill you?" Certainly no one.
The customer, estimated to be in his 40s, was wheeled out by paramedics when he was just midway through his 6,000 calorie burger. The chain owner, a former nutritionist named Jon Basso, said that the man "could barely talk" and was "sweating and suffering" as tourists took photos and videos from the street:
The staff at the Heart Attack Grill willingly glorifies bad health. If you weigh over 350 pounds, you eat for free. And on Saturday night, Basso saw the other side.
"I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that," he said.
The restaurant, like so many other beloved American fast food chains, is famous for selling food that will eventually kill you. It's not supposed to happen mid-bite.
"I don't think I would walk into a place, even if it's called the Heart Attack Grill, and order food," a disturbed Las Vegas resident told Fox 5, "and expect that I was going to have a heart attack."
Certainly not. We're at least entitled to keeling over in the privacy of our own homes. Is nothing sacred anymore?
The male half of the White House Party crashers is suing Journey guitarist Neal Schon for $50 million, for stealing his wife. He says that interrupted all the plans for publicity and money they would've made, and for emotional embarrassment. On top of the $50 million, he's also asking for an additional 450k for punitive damages.
Uh... Mr. Tareq... you're suing the guy your wife ran off with for $50 million+ dollars, for causing YOU public humility and standing in the way of you making more money off the fact that you snuck into a White House Party uninvited? DUDE, you're humiliating yourself even more with this public lawsuit. Grow a pair and MOVE ON before you embarrass yourself further.
Tareq Salahi claims Neal Schon's penis is a tool for destruction ... which he whipped out and used in an effort to topple the thriving Salahi empire ... and now Tareq's suing the Journey rocker for $50 MILLION!!!!
Tareq just filed the lawsuit in Virginia ... claiming he and estranged wife Michaele Salahi were on track to make a fortune together from multiple TV shows including "Dancing with the Stars" ... before Schon's penis screwed everything up.
According to the suit, Tareq and Michaele had an offer to make $150k to participate on the Australian version of DWTS in 2011 ... plus, he claims, the couple also had an offer to appear on another network TV show in the U.S.
But when Michaele ran off with Schon in Sept. 2011... Tareq claims the TV shows pulled their offers.
AND IT GETS WORSE ... Tareq says Schon waged an X-rated campaign to humiliate him ... emailing Tareq a photo of his penis and calling him on the phone to tell him, "I'm f**king your wife."
In the suit, Tareq claims, "The act was a metaphorical slap in the face."
Tareq claims Schon humiliated him in public, too ... because the publicity would increase interest in the band's concert tour .. which resulted in a major boost in ticket sales.
Tareq is demanding at least $50 million for emotional distress, conspiracy to defame, interfering with a contract and defamation ... PLUS he wants $450k in punitive damages.
So there's a new movie called, "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter". I think this verifies what I've always suspected. The Rebels were vampires. Finally some justification. I hear they specifically like to hang out in Louisiana.
And now, for today's parenting FAIL... (this is totally something my mom would do/has done)

And that's all the time I have for today. Watch out for the vampires our dearly departed President neglected to slay, and until tomorrow...
If the entire world population, which is nearly seven billion, was settled as densely as New York City, it could fit in an area equivalent to the size of Texas!
Of course living conditions would be nowhere near close to current US guidelines. As the population continues to grow, overpopulation is beginning to be a problem in places like India and China, which together hold over two billion people. Texas currently has around twenty-five million people living there. Just think what a stretch 7,000,000,000 would be!
