Wendy’s Sells 9-Patty, 3000 Calorie ‘T-Rex’ Burger, Corp Immediately Shuts It Down

Leave it to the man to be the ultimate buzzkill.

A vigilant Reddit user recently posted an image of a towering 9-patty sandwich spotted at a Wendy’s in Brandon, a city in Manitoba, Canada. Huffpo set out to investigate this curiosity and found that the item originated from a fictional ad featured in Sports Illustrated nine years ago. Although the ad was meant to be a “tongue-in-cheek” play, customers requested the behemoth burger and the lovely employees at Wendy’s Brandon happily entertained the idea.

Thus, the 9-patty, 3000 calorie “T-Rex” burger was born and customers were able to purchase the item for $21.99.

Unfortunately, once the T-Rex burger made national news, upper management got a whiff of this brilliant idea and shut it down.

“For obvious reasons, Wendy’s of Brandon neither condones nor promotes the idea of anyone consuming a nine-patty hamburger in one sitting,” stated Barb Barker, an administrative assistant for the outlet.

Man, way to kill that delicious vibe.

Here in South Georgia we can still get our T-Rex fix by ordering one Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe from the “value” menu for $1.29 and then we get 8 plain Jr. Cheeseburgers (also from the “value” menu for $.99) to go with it. Ditch all the bread from the plain cheeseburgers (as quickly as possible before the cheese melts everywhere) and stack those puppies. Then you have a Jr. T-Rex for $10.51 and that includes tax. Add a “value” (diet) coke and a “value” fry and it comes to something like $12.55. Then why not throw in a “value” size frosty (since let’s face it, the frosty is really why we love Wendy’s in the first place – and NOT the new Vanilla version the good old fashioned chocolate one) and you get a grand total of $13.57 (don’t hold me to that number I am relying on memory here and it is fuzzy since my two stoplight town doesn’t have a Wendy’s and we have to drive a full 15-20 minutes up the highway for a Wendy’s fix). So my Canadian friends, eat your heart out. The Jr. T-Rex is here to stay and no corporate big wig is going to tell us Southern Folks what to eat and not eat. Do you think the state that is the home of Honey Boo Boo, June and the gang couldn’t figure this out? Ok, so I did have to use a calculator for some pretty simple math, but that’s why they made ’em, right?
