A Tribute to Igor...And His Digestive System

I would like to take this opportunity to pay official blog tribute to Igor for a true display of masculinity, endurance, and all-around digestive magnificence.
For my birthday on Tuesday, we took a trip to The Vortex to celebrate.  The Vortex serves a behemoth menu item known as the “Super Stack Heart Attack.”  This $26 burger includes “two half-pound sirloin patties stacked inside three grilled cheese sandwiches, topped with two fried eggs, eight slices of  American cheese, ten slices of bacon, with plenty of mayo on the side. With this burger we choose your side for you, and it’s a big bowl of fries and tots covered in our cheesy-cheese goo.”

The challenge.

With a little encouragement and the promise that half the cost would be covered (thanks, Nathan), Igor decided to take on the challenge.  What followed was truly unbelievable.  To say it was similar to “Man vs. Food” would be unfair, because the food never stood a chance.  The Super Stack Heart Attack was conquered in about 15 minutes, fries and tots covered in cheesy-cheese goo included.  And Igor never broke a sweat.

Thank you, Igor, for impressing me on my birthday.  I would like to present you with this certificate as a reward.

Not even a trace of fear in those eyes.
