— So much for giving up meat for Lent.
Arby’s has unleashed Meat Mountain on the fine citizens who call Dayton and surrounding communities home.
What is Meat Mountain you ask?
Well, it ain’t for two-bit wimps.
The 1,030-calorie sandwich includes pepper bacon, roast beef, cheddar cheese, Angus beef, smoked brisket, corned beef, pit smoked ham, swiss cheese, roast turkey and fried chicken tenders on a star cut bun.
All that Meat Mountain madness will set you back $10 or $12.50 if you make it a meal.
It is billed as the biggest sandwich Arby’s has EVER sold, so there you have it.
Meat Mountain is probably not on your diet.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Rapper Kodak Black was arrested Thursday in South Florida, accused of grand theft of a firearm, possession of marijuana and child neglect, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said.
Black, 20, whose legal name is Dieuson Octave, also faces two counts of possession of a weapon by a felon and two counts of probation violation, the Sheriff’s Office said in its arrest report. Black was booked at the Broward County Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale.
The native of Pompano Beach, Florida, was arrested in May for breaking the terms of his probation after a court ruled the rapper broke the terms of his probation. He had been arrested for strong arm robbery, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm by a delinquent and fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement.
On Thursday, a live video was published on Black’s Instagram account. In the brief clip, Black can be heard talking about his cellphone and whether he should turn the device over to authorities.
“Your phone’s part of this search warrant. You are not going to get your phone back,” a man can be heard saying in the video.
Black released a video for his “Roll In Peace” single with XXXTenaction, also known as Jahseh Onfroy, WPLG reported. In the video, Black is shown throwing cash on a courtroom floor.

— The sisters are meeting up again, and Jackée Harry couldn’t be happier.
Harry, who played Lisa Landry on the 1990s television series “Sister, Sister,” told Steve Harvey on his talk show Tuesday that a reboot of the series was imminent, ET Online reported.
“Yeah, it’s happening,” Harry said. “I’m excited.”
“Sister, Sister” aired from 1994 to 1999. The series centered around twin sisters Tia and Tamera, who were separated at birth and adopted. Tia (Tia Mowry) was adopted by Landry, while Tamera (Tamera Mowry) was adopted by Ray Campbell (Tim Reid).
Harry was promoting her role as JoAnn Payne on “The Paynes,” but spoke fondly of her time with the twin sisters, calling them “my babies,” ET Online reported.
Rumors of a reboot were rekindled in October when Tia Mowry told ET that a reunion series was "closer than ever."
“That's basically all I can say,” she said. “But I'm getting excited.”

“He was groomed and shorn, his hooves medicated, de-wormed, no antibiotics necessary,” Pratt, who has filmed movies including “Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2” and “Passengers” in Atlanta, said in a lengthy Instagram post. “Surrounded by laughing loving humans, including children to whom they provided such joy. Nuzzled, pet and loved every day.”
The sheep’s transition to his “final destination” as Pratt put it, was trauma-free: “Just a touch of a USDA certified wand to his head and he goes to sleep. The other sheep don’t even notice. It’s like unplugging a TV.”
The post has sparked impassioned responses from people who either applaud Pratt’s thoughtful approach to farm-to-table living or are totally freaked out that he plans to eat a creature he described in such tender terms.
“This absolute jackass literally just compared killing another sentient being to unplugging a TV,” one commenter posted. “You cannot justify the needless killing or unnaturally ending the life of an animal simply by saying ‘they had a good life.'”
Said another: “This is death. This is not food.”
Look at all this glorious food! We will eat off him for a month. His wool is becoming yarn as we speak. He lived a very good life. He was groomed and shorn, his hooves medicated, de wormed, no antibiotics necessary. Surrounded by laughing loving humans, including children to whom they provided such joy. Nuzzled, pet and loved every day. No stressful travel to his final destination. Trauma Free. Just a touch of a usda certified wand to his head and he goes to sleep. The other sheep don’t even notice. It’s like unplugging a tv. Then Wocka my butcher works his magic. Right now the meat is for friends, family and gifts. Soon though it may be available to my followers as we test recipes and open up to market. Gotta get some things dialed in first. I have found a new passion to add to my many others. #farmlife and jack loves it! You’ll know where to sprinkle my ashes. I’ll tell you that.
A supporter posted, “It’s pathetic that people are commenting on here about how ‘terrible’ this is but it’s not affecting you! This is an animal from Chris’ farm and as a farm animal the cycle is a happy life then being used for consumption.”
Then a bunch of people started arguing over whether it’s healthier to eat meat or to consume only a vegetarian or vegan diet. Finally one guy introduced some levity by posting: “Poor Rocket!”
Here’s a previously posted photo; it’s not clear if the sheep posing for the camera is the one now on the dinner table.

LOS ANGELES — Astronaut Buzz Aldrin got upset with a Delta Air Lines agent after missing a flight at Los Angeles International Airport, according to TMZ video posted Tuesday.
Aldrin was told he wouldn’t be able to get on the flight, which prompted his frustration.
The issue was that it was past the check-in cutoff time at Los Angeles International for the flight, but the agent offered to rebook him on an alternate flight.
“Are you operating an airline here or not?” Aldrin asked on the video. “We’ve been sitting here now 20 minutes waiting for somebody to come and fix a two-minute problem…. This is the most lousy operation I’ve ever seen.”
At one point, Aldrin stands up out of his wheelchair, frustrated about having to be booked on an alternate flight.
A TMZ cameraman later caught up with Aldrin, who seemed to have cooled off. “Look, my son worked for Delta, I know the people quite well,” Aldrin said.
