They are the elephants currently residing in Hope. It’s like a retirement home for elephants. They both receive special medical care. You should definitely check out their website and learn more about what they do there. Great cause to support. I really felt for them when I learned that Rosie’s trunk is partially paralyzed due to nerve damage. They do special physical therapy with her to help her. This hit close to home for me because I have olfactory nerve damage. Her trunk doesn’t work, my nose doesn’t work… Odd to find that I can relate to a retired elephant named Rosie, but I’m strangely OK with it. Anyway, they offer this drawing class, so you can go meet the elephants and maybe see if you can connect with them the way I did.

The Monster Burger has two pounds of pure Black Angus beef patties, slices of French Toast, 8 slices of cheese (can you say heart attack??) Lettuce, Tomato’s, Raw Onions, Pickles and your choice of condiments, all crammed inside of a focaccia Hamburger Bun. You also have to tackle one pound of French Fries and a 32 oz PowerAde. You get one hour to TRY and eat that lil monster!! The cost is $25.99 for each plate. Eat it all and it’s free.

Here’s one contender who ended up on the wall of shame. Bummer, dude. You’re still a winner in my book.
