Putting a foot in your mouth

A footlong cheeseburger? I think it's kinda gross if that's for just one person..all that meat

12-inch burger? Carl's Jr., Hardee's test market a foot-long - USATODAY.com


What happened to the days when even the late Wilt Chamberlain was pitching how the Whopper was so large even he needed two hands to eat it?

The veggies are what you scrape off when you get it. If I wanted a salad, I'd have ordered one!
