Major League Eating

[Guest post by DRJ]

A mohawk-sporting chef ate 21 pounds of grits in 10 minutes, and the two guys pictured next to him ate almost that much. Three average-sized guys ate 60 pounds of grits in 10 minutes.

By contrast, these two heftier guys each ate 12 corny dogs in 10 minutes. I might be able to do that.

OK, maybe not, but it seems easier than eating 21 pounds of grits.

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of eating… it’s like Gene Simmons at his high school reunion.

  2. I love grits and I love corn dogs – IN FREAKING MODERATION!

    Am I the only one who is starting to find these endless rounds of eating contests to be really, really offensive?

  3. In seriousness I wonder at the woman who killed herself by drinking too much water, egged on by that radio station. And surely it is not healthy to eat 21 lb of grits. I mean, how much water is in that?

    Etc.

    It seems an irresponsible thing to promote. One thing North America is not suffering from is a lack of heavy eaters.

  4. Well, while grits is a suth’rn food, I’ll note here that the three “winners” were from Chicago, New York and San José. Us real Suth’ren boys (even those of us transplanted and livin’ ‘mongst the damned Yankees) know better than to eat twenty pounds of grits.

    After all, without the bacon and eggs, 20 lb of grits ain’t a balanced diet!
