Susanne Eman, 32, is trying to become the fattest woman ever. Already 728-pounds, she aims to reach a whopping 1,600 pounds by guzzling more and more food every day. She wants to get into Guinness World Records as the “World’s Heaviest Woman.” The 2012 edition of the book will be released later this month. If you are repulsed by watching this woman kill herself and leave her kids without a mother, then the 2012 edition of Guinness World Records should be left off your Christmas list.

The record for World’s Largest Hamburger was broken at the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton, CA recently.
Here are the specs:
5 feet in diameter
3 feet thick
The total weight of the burger included a 272lb bun, 50lbs of lettuce, 12lbs of pickles and 50lbs of onions, not to mention gallons of ketchup and mayonnaise.
This world record burger contained an estimated 1.4 million calories. Too bad it didn’t include bacon.
