Pedestrians pass by the Heart Attack Grill on Fremont Street, Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2012, in Las Vegas.

This is not a joke: John Alleman, unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill, died from a massive heart attack Monday. The 52-year-old was a regular at the cardio-themed Las Vegas restaurant, known for its enormous hamburger selection, including the 9,982-calorie "Quadruple Bypass Burger" which won the Guinness World Record for most calorific burger. The restaurant's owner, who admits the food he sells is "very dangerous," said Alleman had eaten there every day for the past year and a half—earning a caricature of himself on Heart Attack Grill's menus and stock. He usually ordered the "Single Bypass Burger," fries and a drink.
