Meanwhile, over in Japan, a reporter for Rocket News 24 decided to take advantage of a promotional offer from Burger King wherein the chain offered 15 strips of bacon as a garnish on your burger for $1.25.
Of course, this being Japan, the man took it to it’s logical extreme and ordered a 1050 strips of bacon as “garnish”. The burger weighed in at five pounds and 15 ounces.
The reporter, a Mr. Sato, reportedly bellowed “This is what real hamburger lovers eat! 10 strips? 100 strips? Like that’s enough! A real man needs 1050 strips of bacon!” before plundering the sandwich.
