I think I'm the only person that doesn't like 5 guys and fries.

Oilfield Trash said...

That is so true.

Although I am not really a fan of 5 guys.

purseblogger said...

I don't love 5 Guys either but I will go. This chart is great!

ThreeOldKeys said...

They used to be Four Guys but they needed the extra for CPR.

Kate said...

I've barely heard of them, so your twitter and fb posts on this made me wonder where the heck you were going with that. And bc this is a PG-13 comment, I'll just leave it al that. :)

Kristina P. said...

You wait a whole two weeks? Lightweight!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I think Logan's does the same thing. Damn those peanuts!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Okay, I had to look up Five Guys. I check out their map locater, they are “coming soon” to my area.

Lisa Loo said...

We don't even have a McDonalds--I just go outside and yell, "Here Bessie, Bessie"....

Well, its true we don't have even have a McDonalds......

Amanda said...

Five Guys will kill ya. I've watched four grown men share one of their small fries and still act bloated.

That said, it's not bad.

Corrina Terry said...

Ha ha! We have one here but the line was WAY too long. Maybe we'll try again in June. ;0)

Greasy heart attack burgers are the best.

Heidi-"Heidi in Real Life" said...

Ooooh-- so true! You get so full, and it does take a couple of weeks, but then you crave more. We just got one in Green Bay and I'm dedicating my left love handle to "Five Guys".

PBJdreamer said...

Never eaten at Five Guys

But YOU always make me laugh



that is all

I don't know 5 guys. Are any of them single? Either way, I'm doubtful there'd even be a cycle if the person administering CPR wasn't a hot female.

Pat Tillett said...

Even though I've never seen or eaten at "5 guys" it's still damn funny!

Cheryl said...

There is not a hamburger out there that I couldn't fall in love with at first sight. But, to keep my butt smaller than the Five Guys potato sacks,(the really full ones) I hardly ever take the chance. CPR is secondary to not fitting in clothes I already own.

Susan in the Boonies said...

"Burger with everything? You want a living will with that?"

mintifresh said...

A whole two weeks, huh?!

mintifresh said...

Oh, I think we just had one open up out here on the West Side...I think that may mean bad things for my heart and my butt..

From Tracie said...

Our Five Guys is actually pretty fast.....which is good because I tend to eat there at least twice a week.

Mighty M said...

Gets you every time!! :)

Cathy Webster (Olliffe) said...

Another reason Canadians are ripped off! No Five Guys here. Yah, send us your Scrawl-Mart and your Target but keep the good stuff like Five Guys and Krispy Kreme all to yourselves.
Hmph...

Amanda @ It's Blogworthy said...

Well, once we went to a Five Guys and I ordered a cheese burger and THEY WERE OUT OF CHEESE. Then I ordered something else anyway and our order was $15 for two burgers, one drink and one fries. WTF? Cycle of death indeed.

M-Cat said...

I should tell you that for my initial 5 guys experience, Tiburon and I watched across the street be life flighted away. I now wonder if they had lunch there and the cycle hit them too fast?

I wanted to go there tonight so Splenda could lose his 5 guys virtue, but my arteries cried out for at least another 2 week sabbatical

Connie said...

I've heard of 5 Guys but never been there. I might wait until I get a clean bill of health before I attempt it or make sure the person I'm with knows CPR.

The Bipolar Diva said...

so, so, so TRUE!! I think I might need to make a trip out there tomorrow!

Ms.Wasteland said...

Five Guys is my husband's favorite place to eat. He goes there a couple times a week.

PS I'm going to take out an extra life insurance policy on him. Thanks for the reminder.

tammy said...

I actually lose weight when I go there. I'm serious. Whenever I need a pound off, I go to Five Guys, eat a small cheeseburger with half a bun, and I'm down the next day. I'm not sure what my arteries look like, but hey, at least I'll be skinny when I die.

tammy said...

Did you write your check out to "Five Guys and Some Lady Who's Always There"?

Lazarus said...

Excellent -- and true -- depiction. The FDA could use a talent like yours!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Well, this certainly makes me feel good about
1) never have eaten there
2) not eating burgers

(fear not, I substitute many other junk foods in its stead.)

Maria said...

Never heard of 'em. I will tell you, though, that I just returned from a trip to New Orleans and after eating heavily of shrimp po'boys, dirty rice and beans, crawfish etouffee and bourbon brownies with praline frosting...not to mention cafe au lait and beignets....

I can feel my arteries clogging.

Missy said...

LOVE!

Dawn (Bee and Rose) said...

Five Guys is new in Tucson and is always PACKED! Their cajun fries are rockin'!

SueLovesCherries said...

You commented on my blog, "I prefer reading Bibles that have vibrant colors to the dull ones I am used to." Me, too! That's why I like the kids' Bibles so much! LOL!

FabuLeslie said...

Hahahah! This is so great. I love it! Of course, you forgot the part where you have uncontrollable gas... I think it goes between the coke and the cpr, but I'm not sure. I've never had 5 Guys, but from what I've heard, you're CLOSE to right on...

Kellie said...

I've never been there..is it really that great?
Funny chart.

Teachinfourth said...

The cycle is very similar over at Texas Roadhouse...

tiburon said...

Soooo worth it though. I LOVE 5 Guys!!

W.C.Camp said...

I crunch up the peanuts on the burger and make my own GOOBER-BURGER!
Fun place for the calorie deprived!
W.C.C.

The Church Lady said...

It's so worth the CPR. Don't ya think? I used to have to travel 10 miles or so for a Five Guys, but now, we are getting one right in our neighborhood! (and by neighborhood, I mean 9 miles away!)

blueviolet said...

We have one here but I've never been. Maybe I shouldn't though, based on the fact I don't have a death wish.

Lourie said...

You wait two whole weeks?

Dana K said...

I've never eaten 5 Guys because and now I never will. I have no desire for some hot chick to give me CPR.

Kristen said...

Never been! But after this weekend's illness I am up to the challenge with a vengeance!

Jess said...

Darn you! I love 5 guys. And its one in the morning. They sound even more delicious this time of night, if that's possible. Cajun fries *imagine Homer Simpson drooling here*

Shell said...

I have never had them before- nowhere near me. I'm not sure if this post makes me think that's a good thing or if I'm majorly missing out.

Debbie said...

We all have to go somehow but it is the wise man that decides exactly how:)

T said...

haven't tried it... something about the "five guys" makes me question the origin of the meat...

Christine said...

Do I even bother leaving a comment. What is a "5 guys"? I live an hour and half away from any fast food. My children are slim to prove it too.

Heff said...

I don't like ANY Guys.

I'm straight.

Marnie said...

I learn a lot from your Saturday graphs ;0)

Kelley said...

LOL!!! We never learn, right? I get up every morning and say to myself, "NO SUGAR & NO WHITE FLOUR!!!" and have a face covered in powdered donuts an hour later. :(

DEZMOND said...

so you are basically saying that men are dying from fast food and not the food their wives made??? :))

Okie said...

Brilliant. Awesome. So true.


This reminds me though...my 2 weeks is up. Time to go get a burger. :)

jayayceeblog said...

I don't care what your cycle shows, I love 'em and will stand in line for the 5 Guys Burgers & Fries every chance I get. Excuse me while I order a defibrillator on Amazon.
