raaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrr land

"A dainty 100lb woman has become the first person ever to finish Denny's Beer Barrel Pub's monster 6lb burger. Kate Stelnick, 19, of Princeton, N.J., made the five-hour drive with two friends from The College of New Jersey, after they saw pictures of the monster burger, dubbed the Ye Old 96er, on the Internet and on TV's Food Network.

She ate the burger in 2 hours 54 mins, 6 minutes under the 3 hours allowed. Not even competitive eater Eric "Badlands" Booker was able to eat it when he tried last June. It took him 7 1/2 hours.
The burger takes 45 minutes to cook, and those who try to meet the three-hour limit must use no utensils and eat all of these fixins: one large onion, two whole tomatoes, one half head of lettuce, 1 1/4 pounds of cheese, top and bottom buns, and a cup each of mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, relish, banana peppers and some pickles."
