Double cheeseburger? Triple cheeseburger? How about a nonuple cheeseburger?

Hold on to your arteries, everybody. Jake's Wayback Burgers is bringing its Triple Triple Burger to Woodbury this month.

According to Gillian Maffeo, director of marketing for Jake's Wayback Burgers, all of their burgers are hand-crafted, and made fresh and juicy just like burgers were made "way back when."

We're not sure when exactly in the "way back when" burger joints were throwing nine patties on a hamburger bun, but who are we to quibble?

The Triple Triple was the brainchild of one of the Jake's Wayback Burgers franchisees, and after a brief test run at a Springfield, Massachusetts location, made it onto the national chain's menu in 2013. Around August and September each year, Jake's hosts a Triple Triple burger eating contest. This year's winner, a man in Philadelphia, finished the nine-patty monstrosity in 30 seconds.

That's 30 ounces of beef and 9 slices of cheese (plus the bun, lettuce, and tomato) in 30 seconds.

You don't have to wait for competition burger eating season to get your own; you can purchase a Triple Triple Burger year-round for about $15. (The price varies depending on the location, and can range from $12.99 to $19.99, but Maffeo says the price point typically hovers around $15.)

The tentative opening date for the Woodbury location is this Friday, but is subject to change. There are no other Minnesota locations currently in the works, so it looks like you'll be heading to Woodbury whenever your stomach rumbles for an extra 1,980 calories.

The single slice of tomato makes this unintentionally hilarious.

WHY NOT is the question. The only thing I see wrong is that is missing a 1/2lb. of bacon.
