Exhibit No. 1: Why Americans are obese

This, above, ladies and gentlemen, is what's called, at Swagger Fine Spirits and Food  (8431 Wornall Rd., KCMO 64114, 816.361.4388) the "Dead Texan."

A friend of mine introduced me to this by name only yesterday. I haven't been here or tried it yet--not that I ever would have one, I won't.  I strictly follow comedian Steve Martin's comedic but, to me, very serious advice to "never eat anything bigger than your head. "  It's why I've only been to the Cheesecake Factory twice, actually.

I read that this concoction is two Texas toast grilled cheese sandwiches with a 1/3 lb. burger, 1 egg, 3 slices of bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapenos, and peppercorn mayo in between.

As if this wouldn't be enough calories by itself, it's also served with home cut fries (of course) or pasta salad. (Optional sides of onion rings or side salad are also available for an additional fee).

It speaks for itself.

It's got to be a doctor's or a nutritionist's nightmare.

But hey, bon 'apetit.

You'll need it.

Even the water is fried at the Cheesecake Factory.

And no doubt served in huge portions with sugar, honey, ketchup and a myriad of condiments.

And it would have "sides" included.

OMG! I can't imagine eating the whole thing at one sitting (or even 1/2 of it.) And, I don't think it would be very tasty if it was saved and reheated later.

Truly, isn't that a nightmare?
