Burger Kings 1050 piece bacon whopper

This post was originally published on Mashable

A man walks into a Japanese Burger King and orders a bacon burger laden with 1,050 pieces of swine...

No, this isn't the beginning of a bad joke - it actually happened, and there's a viral YouTube video to prove it.

In the video, we a see a guy sit down at a table and unwrap a mountain of bacon loosely held together by two buns and some nominal garnishment. He measures the mound of pork against his iPhone. He bows his head in a short prayer and starts stuffing his face.

Eventually he takes an alternating-hand approach - a bite of bacon from his right, a bite of bun from his left. After making a valiant effort, but relatively small dent in the monstrosity before him, the man retires to a bathroom with a decidedly queasy look on his face.

Believe me - there's a lot more of this story to read, so, if you have the stomach for it (bad pun - "slaps own wrist") read on through the hot link below.

I love bacon but just looking at that pile of burnt pig made me want to heave. I don't think I can stomach watching the video...yuk!

OMG! I hope there was a cardiologist nearby! That would kill me! I am sure!

Oh yes, I mailed off your 'prize' today John. They said (Canada Post) it would take two weeks....let's see.

He never made it - a short while into it he had to go to the bathroom and 'heave'.

I await the 'prize' in anticipation - Thank you Sophie!
