If you think of yourself as something of a master when it comes to consuming McDonalds’s fine array of burgers then, boy, do we have the challenge for you.
It’s called the Big Mac Meal Challenge and it sounds absolutely epic.
The challenge is simple enough: competitors have just one hour to consume four Big Macs, four large fries and four large milkshakes of any flavour.
They must then hold down that copious amount of food and drink for at least 30 minutes without being sick and the organisers are pretty strict when it comes to food and drink substitutions too.
“Only pickles are optional and may be removed,” the official Facebook page claims. “Why? Because in the end, they just won’t matter.”
Competitors do retain the right to eat the food and drink as they see fit, whether they want to blend it, chill it or maybe even swallow it whole – the only rule is that clean containers are a must.
First launched on Facebook back in 2005, the page invite sany and all to set up their very own locally-based Big Mac Meal Challenges.
These organisers must then pay for any and all meals up front and provide evidence via pictures and video of the completed challenge.
‘What’s the incentive to organize one of these eat-offs?’ You might ask. Well, the guys behind the challenge seem pretty confident that it’s unmanageable.
“It is not a good idea to attempt this as it is physically impossible”
“It is not a good idea to attempt this as it is physically impossible, regardless of your preparations, strategy, size or weight. Believe us, we’ve seen it all.,” they write.
As part of the deal, the challenger must agree in the event of failure that he or she not only pays for the burgers themselves but, in an amusing twist, buys the organiser three beers.
In the unlikely event you do win, meanwhile, a £100 prize awaits.
If that sum sounds tempting, however, it’s probably best to read the warning that comes alongside it:

Still think you’ve got what it takes?
