On the Food Network special Outrageous Food, host Aaron McCargo Jr. went around the country visiting restaurants with the most outrageous food, including McGuire's Irish Pub in Pensacola, Florida, home of the Terrible Garbage Burger. For the ridiculously low price of $9.99 (I'm not counting the cost to your physical well-being) you get a 3/4-pound burger topped with...everything. Like, "Is this video from The Onion?" everything. Here are the ingredients:
Liverwurst, corned beef, sautéed onions, sautéed mushrooms, jalapenos, black olives, banana peppers, pineapple rings, wasabi, guacamole, pepperoni, chili, sauerkraut [INSERT STABILIZING SKEWER], marinara, barbecue sauce, peanut butter, tomatoes, red onions, five types of cheese, a couple strips of bacon, remoulade sauce, and vanilla ice cream topped with hot fudge and an Irish flag-stuck maraschino cherry.
And you thought doughnut burgers were gross? They cower in fear of this behemoth. In all my burger blogging days, I think this takes the cake for most disgusting burger concoction; my reaction during the video was a drawn out, "WTF, NOOOO." But it must have its fans considering the restaurant average 2 or 3 orders of this every day. Watch the video after the jump.

Was anyone else reminded of this? It's an oldie, but a goodie.
