Dude of the Week! (#10)

This week the not quite weekly Dude Whisperer Dude of the Week Award – Si Se Puede Edition should really only be handed out after an appreciative clap on the back to Indiana, North Carolina, Colorado, Virginia, Ohio, New Mexico, Nevada, Florida, and Pennsylvania. You dudes and dudettes did a good thing this week. The DW was not around for the 60s, but he did grow up in the south and can still hardly believe, especially after periodically reading articles like this , that the U.S. was actually wise enough to elect the best candidate for President, even if that candidate is a black man named Barack Hussein Obama.

And really, the DOW should go to Obama, but the DW figures he’s probably got his hands full enough with selecting a transition team and whatnot to take on the speaking engagements and media attention that come with Dude Whisperer accolades. So, instead the DOW this time is presented to a dude who may not have erased any racial boundaries or sent a sense of elation
across the planet, but did manage to say, “Yes I CAN!” to a fifteen pound cheeseburger.

That’s right Brad Sciullo, you are Dude of the Week for taking down the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser, the burger that, with toppings including a cup of mayonnaise and a bun the size of a flotation device, weighs in at 20.2 pounds.

For better or worse, for a bar bet or sheer glory, it doesn’t get much more dudelike than eating an obscene amount of processed meat for no good reason other than, as Mr. Sciullo put it, “I wanted to see if I could.”

Oh, you could all right, dude. And for that, the DW salutes you.
