What he means is that from shot to shot, the hamburger is half-gone, almost gone, half-gone again, almost gone again. it was a continuity problem, common when a scene is shot over several hours (after all, they wouldn't have made Gertie eat the same cold hamburger throughout an entire day of taping). This is indeed a legit slipup. It's even documented in one of the Film Flubs books (I'm not sure which one, I have them all).

Been a while since I've seen E.T., but chances are that she was eating the hamburger (note that they don't have to show her on camera doing this; she can be eating the hamburger while other characters are speaking, etc). In that case, the hamburger would tend to diminish in size over time.

When they have a scene with food, it does change size because its food, its not like anything else, it goes away after awhile, This still is a slip up. but when they show scene with food, a lot of the time it will keep changing sizes, it isn't really that much of a big deal now is it? I didn't think so.
