And he saved the receipts!

September 10, 2008

Another story that is funny, if not in that haha way. . .

Man eats 23,000 Big Macs

The fact that he keeps an emergency supply in the freezer really gets me.  This reminds me of Lionel Essrog in Jonathan Lethem’s brilliant novel Motherless Brooklyn.  At a point very early in the novel, Lionel compulsively eats fast food burgers to sate his tourette’s syndrome.  Did I mention that Lionel also narrates the novel, verbal tics and all?  Yeah, it’s a must-read.

The movie is “in production” with Edward Norton attached as writer, director, and star.  It sounds like a pet project, but here’s hoping it’s one that comes to fruition and meets its full potential.  Norton should be perfect as Lionel!
