Man Eating "Triple Bypass Burger" May Actually Need One

A customer eating a "triple bypass burger" at the Heart Attack Grille in Las Vegas ... may actually need one:

A man who scarfed down a burger and fries at a Heart Attack Grill restaurant in Las Vegas over the weekend actually suffered a heart attack mid chew, authorities said.

Witnesses said the man, who was in his 40s, was grubbing on one of the grill's notorious "Triple Bypass Burgers" when his symptoms started.

I don't know if I'd call it ironic or just plain inevitable. Presumably, a lot of people eat there every day.

As inevitable as comments about the downfall of Western Civilization because some people have bad eating habits.

not saying I'm perfect, just wondering why we have actual establishments thats sole purpose is to create horrible, harmful sludge like any of the food they make at these places. And that this is totally acceptable, and that people eat there, knowingly destroying their body. It was more a comment on the general mindset of the western society than anything.

Ray---if that kid was playing hockey with flamethrowers and chainsaws on a rink made of lava, I'd say yes, we should totally stop playing that, as its incredibly harmful... much like a years worth of calories packed into a single burger is incredibly harmful to consume

Pretty insignificant correlation. Locally, a 15 year-old died of a heart attack while playing hockey. So we should stop playing hockey? (Though of course I would agree eating habits contribute to heart problems.)

I'm glad we spend at money at such spectacular institutions such as this instead of, you know, people dying of hunger, or something that isn't intentionally killing us.
