Take A Look At This: A Whopper of a Whopper, A Supersized Organ, And A Balloon Boy Costume

Take a look at this Whopper of a Whopper!

In Japan, Burger King is celebrating the release of Microsoft's new operating system, Windows 7, with a seven-layer Whopper that weighs in with 2,500 calories.

The odd Whopper of a software promotion is raising some eyebrows and maybe some cholesterol levels!

A Phoenix man's passion for playing the organ is so big, it takes up a whole room!

In fact, he built an addition onto his home to restore and house the antique pipe organ.

The instrument is five times the size of one you'd see at a church.

The room is kept at 72 degrees so that all of the nearly 6, 600 pipes can stay in tune.

Organists from across the country come to Phoenix just to play this one-of-a kind instrument.

And finally, it was just a matter of time before someone cashed in on the balloon boy hoax.

A company in Saskatoon, Canada is selling a balloon boy-related costume, just in time for Halloween.

The remote control and model aircraft company is selling the mini mylar replica for $19.99.

You supply the helium and the cardboard box-- they ship the balloon.

    The Windows 7 whopper, like the operating system it's named for, makes you run for an hour and then fall flat on your face, just like your PC will (unless it's a beast of a gaming rig). I'll take the Linux burger instead -- it's only got what you want on it, and comes with the recipe. New Ubuntu Linux 9.10 comes out next week, looks almost as good as Windows 7, runs off the CD (you can install it at any time, while you're surfing the Net with it), and it's free! Add WINE and it'll even run your Windows programs (most of 'em, anyway). WINE's free too.
