When I read the story in the Pittsburg Post-Gazette, sumpin' 'bout it din't seem quite right.
The burger starts out, as burgers typically do, as a large slab of raw ground meat -- 280 ounces of extra lean beef shipped up from Pittsburgh. That's enough beef to make 70 McDonald's quarter pounders.Now, mebbe I ain't the bestest when it comes t' spellin' an' grammar but I reckon I ain't so bad at doin' the multiplyin' an' dividin'. If they had 280 ounces an' there's 16 ounces in a pound an' 4 ounces in a quarter-pound, then they're right bout the part where it'd make 70 quarter pounders. The thing is, they sez the burger's 15 pounds an' 280 ounces is really 17 an' a haff pounds.
It sure weren't fast food. They hadta cook that baby fer 2 an' a haff hours.
