What the world needs now is a bigger, better, more mayonnaise-intensive way to widen their load, so to speak.
Whatever shall we do?
Enter the owners of Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, Pa.
These are not your average guys with a burning desire to be the biggest and the best at their trade. They are men on a loftier mission. They are the kind of guys who want to do something monumental for America. They are the kind of guys who want to make the world a better place. They are the kind of guys who dared to dream of a hamburger the size of a car tire — and so they made one.
All Headline News reports that Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub, already the home of the world’s biggest burger — weighing in at a paltry, wimpy, only mildly scary six pounds — busted their own record (and likely button or two along the way) with the Beer Barrel Belly Buster, a 15-pound bundle of burger bliss.
Dennis Liegey III, son of the restaurant's owner says, "Every restaurant needs a gimmick — ours is big burgers.” Indeed.
Each Beer Barrel Belly Buster is daintily garnished with a cup and a half each of mayo, mustard and ketchup, a head of lettuce, two onions, three tomatoes and a whopping 25 slices of cheese.
Big eaters who bring their A game and finish the burger in less than five hours get a cash prize, a T-shirt and their name on the wall of fame.

It was just your typical Thursday morning for little Emily Ludwig of Victor, N.Y.
Get up, get dressed, have dad cook you a fried egg that looks like an evil alien.
Jim Ludwig, Emily’s dad and the cook of the creepy culinary creation, says that he and his daughter decided not to eat the angry alien egg because, well, it’s freaky, the Associated Press reports.
But collectors of all manner of food that looks like anything but food can rest easy.
The Ludwigs say they’ve decided to share their scary breakfast with the public and sell it on eBay.

VIENNA, Austria (AP) — A kangaroo led police in southern Austria on a snow chase Thursday after it jumped the fence of its cage and decided to explore its wintry surroundings.
The marsupial — discovered on a country road about 3 miles outside the town of St. Veit in the province of Carinthia — kept hopping away from perplexed police trying to rein it in, local police officer Joerg Fortin said.
In the end, a local veterinarian helped capture the animal using a stun gun.
The kangaroo, which belongs to a breeder in Tirol, was in southern Austria for treatment by Georg Rainer, another local veterinarian.
In a phone interview, Rainer said he was also temporarily looking after a second kangaroo for about two to three weeks. He was not immediately able to provide details about the breeder.
The year-old kangaroo that briefly escaped was being treated for minor injuries, he added.
Tourists who visit the alpine country can buy T-shirts with the slogan "There are no kangaroos in Austria" because this European country is sometimes confused with Australia, where the marsupials are native. Some tourists in Austria have been known to ask where kangaroos can be found.

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — American artist Spencer Tunick has photographed and filmed masses of people in the nude in dozens of public places from Finland to Australia, and now he is looking for at least 2,000 volunteers in Venezuela.
Organizers said Tunick had chosen a street in Caracas for his human art installation, and was asking volunteers to show up and strip on Sunday morning.
“I chose a location to me that was beauty and chaos combined — organized chaos,” Tunick said Thursday. “I’d probably be arrested for doing this and charged with a crime in half of the United States, so I’m honored to be here in Caracas and not be arrested.”
The New York artist has been documenting assemblages of naked people in public places since 1992, and has been arrested multiple times in the United States while doing so.

WINSTED, Conn. (AP) — Having marijuana in your house is illegal, but having marijuana images on your house is not, according to town officials.
Five months after Christopher Seekins was arrested and charged with cultivating marijuana in his home, neighbors have complained about the giant marijuana leaves he has spray-painted on the outside of his home on High Street.
"There's no reason anybody should have a problem with it," Seekins said Wednesday.
Town officials said the marijuana paintings apparently do not conflict with local laws.
"There's nothing in the property maintenance code that deals with writing on your house," Joe Beadle, chief code enforcement officer, said.
Seekins says the large leaves are in support of the cause of the legalization of marijuana. He believes firmly in the usefulness of hemp, the coarse fiber of the cannabis plant, from textiles to paper products.
"People have the wrong impression about it," Seekins said.
In October, police said they found 100 plants inside Seekins' house, along with grow lights, fertilizers and portable heaters.
Police charged Seekins, 26, with cultivating marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Free on $10,000 bond, his court case is pending.
BENICIA, Calif. (AP) — Two armed men in ski masks slunk away from an attempted heist empty-handed after learning they had picked a cashless credit union, authorities said.
The unidentified men rushed into the First Pacific Credit Union in Benicia around noon Thursday with semiautomatic handguns drawn, Benicia police said.
But after ordering employees to lie down and hand over money, the suspects were told there was no cash to be had, police said.
The men were trying to rob a "cashless credit union" where the money is deposited into a vault inaccessible to most employees, said Benicia police Capt. Steve Mortensen.
The men fled the scene, and no one was injured. Police were looking into whether the men have attempted other heists around Benicia, about 35 miles northeast of San Francisco.
"I would say that apparently they weren't really prepared," Mortensen said.
