February 22, 2007: World record kebab meat skewer



ˇEl trompo más grande del mundo! says the entry on this photo in a gallery of shots of the "largest skewer of kebab meat", according to this WaPo story pointed at by Spluch. The celebration is called "tacoton", apparently for the meat in this state; not et this way, it's cut up into pieces and used for tacos.

24,000 tacos.



The first cut.

They were sold for apx. $1 apiece, and the money went to a home for abandoned children.

Ummm....gross?



lumberjim  Thursday Feb 22 12:16 PM

kebob? where? looks like a meat vase.



Shawnee123  Thursday Feb 22 12:19 PM

It's rather...um, phallic, isn't it?



Undertoad  Thursday Feb 22 12:22 PM

You just think that of any cylindrical meat. It's actually bomb-shaped.

Looks like the Shit Demon from "Dogma".

It's a doner kebab like they have back home, not the kebob thingies on skewers they have here. The nearest thing in the US is Gyros. The meet is shaved off the big kebab, then in the UK we put it in a pita with some salad (lettuce/cabbage, tomato, onion) and lemon juice and/or chili sauce.

Sheesh

Don't you mean "Donner kabob" as in the Donner party? They don't say what kind of meat it is... maybe it's human meat.

Donor kebab -where all the unusable organs go once the good stuff has been "harvested"

"Y con ustedes...ˇEl trompo más grande del mundo! translates at Alta Vista's Babel Fish as "And with you... I spin a top greater of the world!"




xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Feb 22 11:11 PM

How and where did they cook it though?



SPUCK  Friday Feb 23 06:12 AM

I think in this case they just stuck a cork in a cow's butt and it self inflated.

Then they lit a burp.

And.... KABOB!



Kingswood  Friday Feb 23 09:00 PM

I wonder how long it took to assemble all the tasty pork cuts into that tower of kebably goodness, and what did they do to stop it spoiling? I'm guessing the meat was cooked before assembly. I wouldn't want to be cooking 4 tons of raw meat.



Sundae  Tuesday Feb 27 07:59 AM

Editing because I just read the full article - I assumed this was a kebab like we have in this country and would therefore be made of lamb. It's pork. How peculiar!
