Eh? Dagwood covets Black Bear burger

Those of us who love the comic pages know that Dagwood Bumstead likes big sandwiches.

So perhaps it's not surprising that a big sandwich from the Northland attracts Dagwood's attention in today's installment of "Blondie."

It starts with Blondie reading Dagwood an item from the newspaper: "A Minnesota resort broke the world record by frying a 2,014-pound cheeseburger."

At first, Dagwood wonders how that could be possible. But by the third panel he's trying it himself.

Readers might remember that the resort that fried the world-record burger was Black Bear Casino near Carlton.

The casino cooked up the burger -- which included 60 pounds of bacon, 50 pounds of lettuce, 50 pounds of sliced onions, 40 pounds of pickles and 40 pounds of cheese -- on Sept. 2.

If Dagwood tries it himself, he'd better rent some big machinery. Black Bear Casino used a crane to flip its burger.
