Happy Birthday Bill Reitler

Man Vs. 4x4

In the days of old (circa 1990's), men were forced to prove themselves by going head-to-head with man's newest - and greatest - foe: the internet. Now that we have an iPhone in every pocket and an iPod with internet access in the other pocket, I'd say we pretty well conquered the internet.

So that's it I guess. Every single foe menkind (sorry girls) has ever faced has been conquered and video proof posted on YouTube. There's no other way for men to be men, and boys to feel inadequate in comparison.

At least there wasn't.     Bill vs. 4x4

Thanks to the endless hours we collectively spent lying awake at night, staring at the ceiling, praying to God for a new challenge to undertake, menkind (again, this is deliberate typo meant to exclude women, I'm so sorry) has met their match. And once again, we have risen victorious, not to mention masculine.

The latest contender to conquer the beast in the name of all men who have birthdays and work at Ambassador is one Bill Reitler, commander of the armies of the north (because men love Gladiator references).

No mere burger, no matter how many patties it contains (four)

can stand to the unstoppable force of a man's hunger.

Great work, Bill. Happy Birthday!

Ambassador 4x4 Club - Current Members:

Robert Jacobsen - Deposed Dictator (his burger was protein style)
Jim Sanders - President Elect (added animal style fries)

Bill Reitler - Defense Secretary

Special thanks to JC for coming up with the idea in the first place.



By the way, in case y'all were interested, here is the bad news nutritionally (extrapolated from In-n-Out's own facts page):

4x4 Calories: 1050
Fat Grams: Almost 70 (!!)
Salt: 2320 mg

But to add a bit of perspective, a single cheeseburger, fries and a lemonade add up to just about the same number of calories (but a lot less fat and salt).

I had tofu and collard greens for dinner that night (due penance indeed!).

Yeah, but can you eat a whole wicky wacky BBQ Chicken Salad from Islands?? :)
