My Friday At Work

The Challenge:
We dared a guy from work to try and eat 2 "Take 10" cheeseburgers (that's 10 patties w/ cheese each for a total of 20 patties) and drink a gallon of milk in an hour and keep it down for an hour.


The Payoff:
$1,200

Does he make it?

Absolutely sick and wrong.

So a lot of people seemed to be saying, "I'm still paying you" so how much dough did he end up with??

With all the billboards I've been interested in working there, but this video clinches it - resume sent.

The Flip really captured the nuances of the retching - impressive.

I can't wait to see the billboard about this one. Or maybe this is what they're talking about when they say "everything's greener but the jello."

If I can eat two take tens and a gallon of milk, will you hire me?

I'm not hungry anymore.

Truly epic. I love working at Omniture! Friday afternoons have never been so entertaining.

I've heard people say that drinking a gallon of milk alone is impossible. But for him to eat two tens and get that close to finishing the gallon is just unreal... He's a true American hero.

I drank a gallon of milk once when I was a teenager. I was in a growth spurt and ravenously hungry all the time. I chugged the first half gallon then finished off the rest over the next 1-2 hours.

During this same time I would also mix up a whole box of Jello instant pudding and eat the whole thing.

And a bag of Doritos was gone in one day, easy.

Nowadays if I tried to do any of that I'd be puking just like the guy in the video.

Where do you get those Take 10 burgers? As an Orem resident, I'm curious, though I can't imagine ever eating one.

KK- There is a place on State Street in Orem called Ez Out Burger. It's a lot like In-N-Out.

that is just sad. $1200 on the table--what a waste. think of the children. think of the toys, think of the vacation, think of disneyland.

he let them down. i'm glad I don't have to look in their sad little faces.

I heard a rumor that upper management wanted a piece of the action, chipped in some cash and sent an assistant down to observe the happenings. (You know, it has to be an "official" result.) That truly makes it a great place to work in my book. Not only was management allowing this, but took part in the festivities. Sweet.

I want to meet the sick puppy who thought of this. I've heard of people trying to do the gallon of milk but to add the cheeseburgers was pure genius.
