You might know by now that the crew at Black Bear Casino in Carlton cooked up a Guinness world-record cheeseburger that weighed in at more than 2,000 pounds. What you may not know is comedian and “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon made a joke about it in one of his recent shows.

He said the burger was supposed to be divided up between the customers, but “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got to it first.”

Black Bear’s Chuck Androsky called up Eh? to add that former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was lending his new-found talents by asking the governor, “Would you like fries with that?”

Nice try, Chuck. But old T-Jack still has an NFL job as backup quarterback in Buffalo. Maybe next year, though.
