The world's biggest hamburger chain is set to expand its test of chicken wings to Chicago this week, after a successful run in Atlanta last year.

McDonalds Wings

The McDonald's wings are expected to be sold in three, five or 10 pieces with prices likely starting at $3, according to reports. But will they go national?

Eating Denny's entire 11-piece "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" menu in a single sitting sounds certifiably insane ... unless you're Jamie "The Bear" McDonald did.

Okay, it still sounds insane, but he did it anyway.

In 20 minutes, Jamie McDonald inhaled about 156 ounces (9.75 lbs) of food and drink and 8,610 calories, not including ketchup. Totally worth it, undoubtedly.

The Ring Burger alone is a stunning 1,420 calories ... of course all Hobbit fans know the Ring has a way of corrupting those who seek it, so that makes sense.

THG NOTE: Don't try this at home. Maybe an easy salmon recipe instead.

When Anderson Cooper isn't dodging explosions in Gaza (see video below), he's going off on Twitter followers who accuse him of covering the Israel-Hamas conflict unfairly.

Pamela Weiss found this out first hand earlier in the week when she ripped his reporting from the Middle East. In response, he dropped a Twitter bomb of sorts on her.

Weiss, a self-described "social media junkie" and "foodie," criticized his story an Israeli air strike on a media center, writing "Report a fair story. Report facts."

Amazingly, AC noticed and responded: "ummmm.... I just did that and have been doing that repeatedly on twitter and on tv. Do you actually think before you tweet?"

Bacon and eggs with a side of Obamacare? That recipe will cost extra starting in 2014.

While some businesses threaten to cut workers' hours to avoid paying for their health care, a West Palm Beach, Fla., restaurant owner is going even further.

John Metz said he will add a 5 percent surcharge to customers' bills to offset what he says are the costs of Obamacare, along with reducing employees' hours.

  • Denny's
  • Obamacare Logo

"If I leave the prices the same, but say on the menu that there is a 5 percent surcharge for Obamacare, customers have two choices," Metz told the Huffington Post.

Ouch. In defense of his recipes and establishment, Fieri told Today's Savannah Guthrie:

A lot of people (48.0% of the popular vote to be precise) are pretty disappointed with Tuesday's election results, but one West Virginia McDonald's is taking it particularly hard.

McDonald's Flag

By and large, reactions to President Obama's reelection range from partisan lunacy (Donald Trump's rant) to classy calls for national unity (Mitt Romney's concession speech).

The Follansbee, W.V. McDonald's? A little different.

Wednesday, it was spotted flying the American flag upside down at half-mast - traditionally, a signal that the flag-bearer is in jeopardy and in dire need of assistance.
