Burritos and roller coasters

The NASCAR Cafe at the decidedly downmarket Sahara Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has a sporting proposition the younger man in me finds more than a little enticing (cue up Rocky theme).

Earlier this week, the cafe started selling a 2-foot, 6-pound burrito called "The Bomb." If you manage to finish this $19.95 behemoth, they'll comp it and give you two free unlimited ride passes for the Sahara's roller coaster, which goes frontwards, backwards and upside-down. They also give you a keepsake T-shirt that says you "Conquered the Bomb." The AP story doesn't say if there's a limit on how long you get to finish the burrito or how long you get unlimited roller coaster rides.

However, if you fail to finish "The Bomb" burrito, they make you take a photo wearing an extra small pink T-shirt that says "Weenie," which is still kind of honorable in its own special way.
