God bless America! Land of the free, and home of the 1,420-calorie burger.

"This is a burger for young hungry guys who want a really big, delicious, juicy, decadent burger. I hope our competitors keep promoting those healthy products, and we will keep promoting our big, juicy delicious burgers...."

Health-safety activist Michael Jacobson denounced the new Hardee's concoction. "They would argue they are just giving people what they want. I would say this is beyond the pale..." [MSNBC]

"Mmmm ... decadent burger ... mmmmm..."
