The burger joint giving wellness advocates fits

Here’s just another reason this restaurant should catapult up the list of Burger Joints Your Workers Shouldn’t Frequent on Their Lunch Breaks: A man suffered a heart attack eating a 6,000-calorie Triple Bypass Burger at the Heart Attack Grill.

If the name doesn’t scare you, the food should. The monstrous Triple Bypass isn’t even the biggest burger on the menu.

The restaurant offers an absurdly-sized Quadruple Bypass burger, which weighs in at over two pounds and contains 20 pieces of bacon. If you can finish it, workers will roll you out in a wheelchair.

Last year, we reported this place would give any wellness program coordinator fits, and this recent event helps support our argument.

An unidentified man was halfway through his meal at the chain’s Las Vegas location when he began experiencing pain in his chest.

He was taken via ambulance to a nearby hospital after a waitress called 911. Ironically, the waitress was dressed as a nurse, which is the standard uniform for females working at the hospital-themed restaurant.

No word on the customer’s health status.

    I have been watching this story and I have to agree with some of my progressive pundit friends. There is any easy solution to this problem. The “Heart Attack grill should be forced to close its doors. Let’s have the government pass more laws to control our behavior. They are simply not doing enough to protect me from myself.
    Sure they tell me what light bulb I can buy (the one filled with mercury that needs a haz-mat team to clean up if broken). Sure I have an Al gore toilet that saves water (never mind that it can not even handle my 3 year old’s business w/o three flushes and a plunger) However, these types of measures do not go nearly far enough. Big brother could be so much bigger.
    Like it or not, we now live in an entitlement society almost completely devoid of personal responsibility. Since we have no responsibility we need to demand that our government controls more of our behavior. The “Heart Attack Grill” should be shut down, McDonalds should be forced to go vegan, grocery stores should be prohibited from selling bacon. I should be fitted with a device that monitors my caloric intake. Afterall, the only alternative to the governments caring tentacles in every facet of our life is to promote individual responsibility and freedom, but that ship sailed long ago.
