(Newser) – Have you ever thought to yourself, “Self, you are not doing enough to ensure you die of a heart attack before you have to deal with that nasty growing old nonsense”? Then maybe you should see if your local state fair is selling the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger. It’s exactly what it sounds like: A burger and cheese, with one or more doughnuts instead of a bun, weighing in at about 1,000 calories, according to one purveyor.

If that’s still too healthy for you, the Wisconsin State Fair has improved on the concept by adding chocolate-covered bacon on a stick, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. We’re not sure why there’s a stick. But in any case, the burger seems popular. “It’s a doughnut with chocolate-covered bacon and a cheeseburger put together. How could you go wrong?” raved one diner. “It’s really good,” his 9-year-old nephew agreed. Another agreed that it was amazing—once a year. “More than that—I’m in the hospital.”
