The problem with building a mile-long ostrich sandwich is that it looks so darn tasty that onlookers will devour it before you can officially set a Guiness World Record.
Happens every day... in Iran ... right?
It's a sad, but true tale of a hulking hoagie gone bad.
More than 1,500 Iranian cooks spent two days constructing the 1,500 meter sandwich, and it took only minutes for a ravenous crowd to make it disappear.
Damn, Iranians. They're not all terrorists, but they sure are hungry.
You can watch the BBC video, which was clearly filmed before the chaos and carnage ensued.
