THE monster burger offered by the Ship Inn at Newnham as part of its Forester vs Food challenge has finally been conquered.

Pub regular Stuart Bradley succeeded in rising to the Moby Dick Challenge on Sunday. It comprises of eating a whopping 6,900 calorie meal, weighing 4kg, in just 45 minutes.

The Moby Dick burger costs £23.95 and includes 1/2lb bacon burger, 1/4lb lamb burger, 1/4lb pork burger, 1/4lb steak burger, four homemade baps, four rostis, 12 slices of tomato and gherkin 12 onion rings, creamy coleslaw and 1kg of fries with cheese sauce.

Since launching the challenge in December around 40 people have tried and failed to eat the Moby Dick burger.

Landlady Carrie Redgwell said: “The whole pub was cheering Stuart. He said he felt fine, and was talking about having a cheesecake afterwards.”

Stuart was given his burger free, and the pub donated £5 to the James Hopkins Trust.

    Can Burgers Save The World? What can I do today to ease the troubles of the human race? To alleviate some suffering and woe. I know, I'll stuff a massive eight pound burger in my face. To show that I'm a sensitive sort of Joe. I'm not making this big sacrifice just for selfish me, My love for all humanity abounds. If I eat it I will get to stuff myself, completely free. And a charity will receive a whole five pounds. Alfred Lord Tension (2014)

    I do wish they'd not do it. I'm going to sound like some preaching whinger, I know, but aren't these things in the category of pie-eating contests and the like, which have really had their day?

    Weren't some of the Guinness Book of Records 'stunts' discontinued as being too dangerous and/or stupid? Why does TiG give publicity to this ludicrous event? (Truly massive donation to the James Hopkins Trust, by the way...)
