Wendy's Brandon, MB branch began to sell the towering burger after a fake advertisement in Sports Illustrated invented the idea nine years ago, according to the Winnipeg Sun. Customers asked, and so they received the nine-patty wonder sold for $21.99.
The branch filled an order for one almost every day, the story says.
But the T. Rex burger met its demise after publicity led Wendy's head office to stop Brandon's branch from doling out heart attacks, the newspaper reported. Representatives read from a prepared statement that said the reasons for killing the burger were "obvious."
"Wendy's of Brandon neither condones nor promotes the idea of anyone consuming a nine-patty hamburger in one sitting," spokespeople said, according to the Canadian Press.
