Carmelo Anthony

Immortalized

on Rye Bread

2/22/2011 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

You know you've arrived in New York City when the famous Carnegie Deli names a sandwich after you -- and Carmelo Anthony has landed in a HUGE way.

0222-carmello-sandwich-ex-tmz
Carmelo's trade to the New York Knicks isn't even official yet, but Sandy Levine, owner of the Carnegie Deli, tells TMZ they are already launching the new Melo Sandwich and it is packed with everything you could ever want on a sandwich:

-- Pastrami
-- Corned Beef
-- Salami
-- Bacon
-- Tomato
-- Russian dressing
-- On rye bread

The sandwich will run you a cool $21.95 and that price was chosen for a reason -- if they sell around 3,000,000 of them ... it equals the $65 million contract Melo is likely to sign with the Knicks.

Antacid costs extra.

No american should complain about such an unhealthy meal. The next time you are in public just look around, pot bellies, bad breath, premature balding general obesity, and any number of diet related health problems. Contemporary american culture not only is mentally ill they are physically in terrible shape.Most of humankind on this planet die from not having enough food to eat, however we americans are dying from over eating.

No wonder the world hates us,I think I hate us too. Wasteful, unfunny and obscene, the trifecta of bad taste. On sunday I'll be in for my usual, the double bypass with cheese.

Considering that's about $45.00 worth of deli meat I'd say $21.95 is a pretty good deal. I'm guessing the real thing looks nothing like this photo. The sandwich in this photo has at least 6 pounds of deli meats and at least a pound of bacon on it.

The Carnegie Deli is the WORST place! Two slices of dried out bread with two pounds of meat on it is not a sandwich. It's inedible. No sides, either! And, when you are vacationing, what the heck are you supposed to do with all that leftover food? We ended up leaving it next to a homeless guy sleeping on a bench. He probably woke up and said "Cripes, not more Carnegie Deli leftovers!"

That's just ridiculously stupidly insanely large. Like really, who the hell can eat that?! The thought gags me! Make a real sandwich Carnegie and donate the extra excess crap to the homeless!
