For those of you who have been keeping track, last year the Ambassador men underwent a birthday challenge to eat a 4x4 from In-N-Out. (I hope nobody has been keeping track. You should all have better things to do than monitor our eating habits). Every single male member of the Ambassador team participated in this ritual, without any exceptions. Except for one. We're looking disappointedly at you, Mark (AKA The King of Chick-Fil-A).
There comes a time in every man's life when he loudly proclaims "enough is enough!", only to realize later he was wrong. As it turns out, enough is not actually enough. He wants more. And not just more. A lot more.
Enter: Fatburger. A restaurant that has the word "fat" right in the name. How can something so upfront about how terrible it is for you possibly be bad? Perhaps it's the burgers as large as 24oz (pre-cooked, as all meat is weighed), or maybe it's that they want everyone to be their BFF (Big Fat Friend), but I have a good feeling about this place.
Rob, as always, has the first birthday, so it was up to him to set the bar. And set it high he did. Thankfully, he didn't go after the Triple King (the 24oz one), instead choosing the slightly smaller Double King, which weighs in at a mere 16oz. While it is double the weight of a 4x4, it's only 2/3 the weight of the Triple King.
So, the line has been drawn. The standard is set. Our hearts are preparing for the worst (really the second worst). Every man must choose his own fate, at least as far as his birthday burger is concerned. However, he will be compared to those who have come before him, with ridicule if necessary.
There are a lot of questions facing us as we head into another year of birthdays:
WILL ANYONE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO EAT A TRIPLE KING??!?!?
I lied, there's only one question facing us.
