Everybody’s Talking

Big Burger: Those who enjoy eating great big burgers might want to visit  Chris Steaks and Burgers in Bangkok, Thailand. The burger in question is enormous. The ground beef or pork patty weighs six kilograms (13 lbs.) and is loaded with fattening extras, such as bacon, mayonnaise, and onion rings.  Lomdech Kongsuwan, the restaurant owner, is offering 10,000 baht to any diner able to gobble up the meal in nine minutes. So far, very few customers have been able to accomplish the feat.

Lost and found: Ken Woroschuk may be missing a truck, but the important thing is that he has his dog, whose name is Nick. Woroschuk, from Edmonton,  Alberta (Canada), left the vehicle running to keep Nick warm while he ran an errand. The truck, along with the attached flatbed trailer, was stolen, along with Nick, who had been waiting patiently in the cab. The trailer was found quickly, but not the truck or Nick. Luckily, the thief must have decided to let the dog go, as Nick was found, unharmed, on a nearby street. For Woroschuk, that was all that mattered.

Permanent Love: It seems that Truong Van Lam is truly in love with his fiancée,  Luong Kha Tran. The Vietnamese man decided to show his deep feelings in a permanent way: he hired a tattoo artist to ink her likeness on his back. It took many hours and three sessions to get the job done. While the man has other tattoos related to his beloved (her birthdate on his chest and their initials on his wrists) the back tattoo is by far the largest, covering his whole back. She was a bit taken aback at first but has grown to like the image of herself because it is a symbol of her fiancé’s love.

Lovely Loaves: When customers buy a loaf of bread made by “Hannah,” they don’t want to ruin it by cutting it up and making sandwiches. That’s because  Hannah’s loaves are works of art. The food artist from North Carolina (U.S.),  who is known as Blondie and Rye on social media, carves intricate designs into her loaves. She uses a special blade to etch the bread with patterns of leaves. Often, she’ll adorn it by adding cut-up vegetables and fruit on top. It doesn’t matter whether the bread product is a bagel, a round loaf of pumpernickel, or a long sourdough loaf, Hannah makes her loaves enticing to anyone.
