    after hearing countless radio ads for them, mrs. shockey brought a frozen pack of 'em over the weekend during her weekly grocery run. what to lose, right?

    well, lemme just offer that these things are GREAT! thick and juicy and tasty. like right off a barbeque grill.

    that's it. just wanted to share and wonder if others agree. i mean, it was such a revelation it makes me think there must be something wrong with them.

    Have you tried the partially gelatinated nondairy gum-based beverages?

    okay, those sound disgusting.

    but seriously, is there something beyond being a hamburger that we should know about bubba burgers?

    or is today just a day shockey should just go eff himself?

    I've never had them. I just saw the post about Krusty burgers and it made me think of that line from the Simpsons.

    Hope you enjoy your 605 calories and 36g of fat. :D


    That's more than half your daily intake of fat in one burger.

    Yeah, but they call them shakes.

    Shakes?? You don't know what you're getting.

    hey, i get that burgers aren't health food. the numbers listed don't give me the perspective of how it compare with a homemade burger i'd patty up myself with ground round beef, let's say.

    are the bubba's more deadly than, say, making my own? or buying a angus burger or quarter-pounder from mcdonald's? 'cause it sure tasted better than those options.

    i'm not making a living off of eating these things. just trying to discover if a bubba is significantly more deadly than usual burger options.
