yes, i ate an in-n-out 8x8

any good californian knows that in-n-out has a secret menu.  if you want a double cheeseburger, you can order a double double off the regular menu, but if you're looking for more, the secret menu will get you a 3x3, a 4x4, and so on.  i (somewhat arbitrarily) decided that i could eat an 8x8, and made it a short term life goal.  the self-imposed rules were that i had to finish it in under 30 minutes, and i had to keep it down all day.  although i entered the in-n-out in westwood village with some trepidation, i achieved that goal today.

in case you're not familiar with the 8x8*, i'll give you a rundown of its contents:  8 patties, 8 cheeses, lettuce, tomato, and grilled onions on a bun.  (i don't get sauce on my burger regularly, so i didn't here either.)

i'm proud to say, i finished it in less than 25 minutes:

* for the record, in-n-out no longer allows you to order anything bigger than a 4x4, so i had to order two "flying dutchmen" (two meats, two cheeses) and assemble my own 8x8.  extra gross.

That's epic! But the real question is: how did you feel afterward?

I'm torn between pride and wanting to gag. :)

There is SO much cheese dripping off that thing. Ugh.

May I assume there will be a follow-up story on the follow-up poop?

@laryssa -- i felt surprisingly good, all things considered. my sis and I went to target afterwards.

@jenni -- that's a pretty accurate description of how i felt, too.

@austin -- the cheese part was actually delicious. it's the wall of meat that's challenging.

@thomas -- you may assume whatever you like :)
