WINNIPEG - A fast-food restaurant in Manitoba has turned a joke into a burger lover's dream.

A Wendy's outlet in Brandon is offering customers a T. Rex burger consisting of nine quarter-pounder patties held together by nine pieces of processed cheese and a flimsy bun.

The burger started out as a joke ad in Sports Illustrated nine years ago but customers came in asking for the real thing.

The restaurant obliged and now sells two to three such beef beasts a day.

Wendy's had a picture of the meat monster hanging in the dining room but the photo has since been taken down.

The burger is a whopping 3,000 calories and has created buzz in Canada and the U.S., but the restaurant will only say a statement from corporate headquarters is coming.
