Anybody can partake in a green beer drinking marathon to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. But it takes a curious sadist to partake in a self-declared Shamrock Shake Challenge. In the spirit of celebrating his Irish heritage, Sam Jordan at the humor site Zug decided that he would down a gallon of McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes:
The damage: six large 22-ounce shakes, each of which contain 840 calories, 24 grams of fat and 117 grams of sugar. “Multiply those stats by six — the amount of shakes it takes fill a gallon milk jug — and well, I was expecting a major case of the queasies.”
But alas, Jordan had to admit defeat. “I wish I could tell you the positive momentum lasted. But after it took me 11 minutes to find my homeland on the map, I was nearly full.” Of the gallon jug, he consumed a fair amount. He took out a ruler and said he was short about four inches. “Please, no sex jokes. Not at a time like this.”
