Now, we're not seen as the strictest calorie counters around. It's quite possible, okay very likely, that we've gone over our recommended daily allowance of 2,500 calories per day a few times...a month.

But, we have limits. Unlike those crazed food doctors at Epic Meal Time, known for their monstrous creations.

This one, however, might be the moment where they've taken things a bit foo far. Their Foodkenstein's Monster, if you will. Okay, that sounded better in our heads.

The Canadian pair were feeling homesick and so created the Burly Beaver Sandwich to help them feel better. It's based around a poutine, a dish from Quebec that's essentially chips, cheese and gravy.

They took those ingredients, added bacon and wrapped into a bun. Oh and then they did that again, so we have two buns. They were then dusted with cinnamon brown sugar and then used to sandwich a layer of pastrami, more chips, cheese, gravy and bacon.

Ultimately, it boasted 21,430 calories and 2540 grams of fat. That's almost 10 days worth of food.

And who ate it? Kevin Smith. Of course. Well, he tried to eat it.
