ESPN: Atta pepper! CPA eats 247 jalapenos in 8 minutes

http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/news/story?id=2618830

Quote:
LeFevre, who has also won the fair's World Corny Dog Eating Contest three times, said his winning strategy was to mix three or four peppers in his mouth with a swig of milk before swallowing.

LeFevre was one of four professional eaters who took the top four places in the competition.

Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas said she had never eaten a jalapeno before the contest. Ranked third in the world by the federation, she downed 239 peppers to take second place and $1,000 in prize money.
That is some pure punishment!!!

247 Jalapenos times like 5,000 scoville heat units equals 1,235,000 scoville heat units.

kleenex I was wondering when you were going to post a link to this story. I was going to post it the other day, but I figured you would post it sooner or later
