BK Pizza Burger Weighs in at a Whopping 2,500 Calories

And here I thought the Double Down was bad... Burger King has announced the new New York Pizza Burger to be sold exclusively at its Times Square Whopper Bar starting this September. The "burger" consists of four patties covered in pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and pesto mayonnaise all piled on a nine inch bun and adorably sliced like a traditional pizza pie. Thank you, BK, for giving overstuffed American tourists in NYC one more reason to eat at a national fast food chain while on vacation instead of enjoying one of the many other culinary options available (a good slice of NY pizza or a piled-high deli sandwich might not save a ton of calories, but at least they are authentic New York).

My New Favorite - My Scratch Map

AMAZING. It is like a lottery ticket for past and future travels - without the payoff, but still. Use a penny to expose places you have been or hope to go. I might need two, one for each. Already have one? Share your map - what color is Russia? Serbia? Italy? Bangladesh? Thanks Gizmodo - though I must admit I am not sure I share your sentiments about the sniff option... Crepes in Paris, yes. The Nile in a drought, not so much.
