Packers sell 3.5 pound 'Big Game Burger' at Lambeau

Here is a post about a gigantic, absurd, strangely beautiful, potentially offensive food item soon to be offered at Lambeau Field.

It's called the "Big Game Burger", a 3.5-pound testament to beef, cheese, cholesterol and digestive system destruction and it will be on sale during the Packers' Sunday playoff showdown with the Cowboys. Will Brinson of CBSSports.com procured the ingredients of the great beast:

» "Big Mother" pretzel bun
» 1/2 pound of ground venison
» 1/2 pound of ground bacon
» 1/2 pound of certified Angus beef
» Crispy fried onions
» Jalapeño smoked bacon
» Lettuce (and you thought this wasn't healthy)
» Tomato (six slices)
» Pickles
» Secret sauce
» Housemade jalapeño cheese

Here's another view of the strident patty warrior, with a regulation football placed next to it for the purpose of scale. We assume the top bun was left off so we could still see the pigskin:

All that can be yours for the sneaky affordable price of $20. I reached out to Around The NFL writer and staunch vegetarian Marc Sessler with a choice: Would you rather eat at least 50 percent of the Big Game Burger or 12 buffalo wings. (Marc is so disgusted by wings that I've become self-conscious eating them in front of him at local taverns.)

His answer: "I'm going with this chaos-in-a-bun creation. It probably has more flavor. And I'm not -- with my teeth -- directly carving into a dead animal's tiny legs."

Slap that testimony on a billboard, Lambeau!
