Heart Attack-Themed Restaurants Encourage Unhealthy Eating?

The Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Arizona, sells a Quadruple Bypass Burger, which packs a whopping 8,000 calories, and a side of Flatliner Fries deep fried in pure lard. Excuse me while I go vomit.

And that isn't even the worst part!

The restaurant's signs have EKG monitors on them; the servers wear nurse costumes and fishnets tights; and the tag-line is "Taste Worth Dying For"—this is a heart attack-themed restaurant after all.

But that still isn't the worst part...

The absolute worst part? Customers weighing more than 350 pounds EAT FOR FREE!

Apparently, the heart attack restaurant business model is so popular that an eatery in Florida called Heart Stoppers Sports Grill (tag-line: "Let us fill your prescription for food and fun") has opened with the same theme—and is being sued for stealing the idea.

What do you think of heart attack-themed restaurants? Brilliant marketing ploy? Or completely ridiculous and irresponsible?
