No, that is not a reference to Monty Burns of Springfield. Rather, that line comes to you courtesy of Batman villain Egghead (played by Vincent Price, who else?).

But I say this in regard to an eggceptional story in today's CNN Money about the new Enormous Omelet Sandwich at Burger King. The sandwich, consisting of a mere two eggs, a sausage patty, two cheese slices, and three strips of bacon, packs in 730 calories and 47 grams of fat--more than a Whopper. As you might eggspect, critics are making a beef about this Caligulan feast. The good folks at Burger King, however, have maintained a steady line for some time now: It is all about choice. They aren't eggsactly saying you should eat three of these a day, but, as one spokesman told CNN Money, "It's designed for people who like to start the day with a hearty breakfast."

Recently seen ordering the sandwich were Paul Bunyan, Apache Chief, and Grape Ape.

That might be a big enough breakfast if they throw in a king size hashbrown and a Diet Coke.
