Pa. man chews through belly-busting, 15-lb. burger

Pa. man chews through belly-busting, 15-lb. burger - Yahoo! News

Quote:
CLEARFIELD, Pa. - It took Brad Sciullo 4 hours and 39 minutes to finish a marathon. A meat marathon, that is. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound western Pennsylvania chef is the first person to eat a monstrosity called the Beer Barrel Belly Bruiser: a 15-pound burger with toppings and a bun that brought the total weight to 20.2 pounds.

Personally, I find that pretty disgusting. I see no reason to eat to excess, especially when you look at the obesity in this country. It's counterproductive, IMHO.

Hmmm, I haven't been to Clearfield in years.....

People that eat in excess for the fun of it, or any reason for that matter don't bother me. He had fun, he got his name mentioned. It's not like he's that guy in that Monty Python movie
I just wonder if the T shirts were all the same sizes

There is no appeal or interest for me in eating a huge quantity of food like this or trying to eat more food faster than anyone else. It has nothing to do with the food, just absurd competition.

Back in high school, a group of 4 of us formed the Hollow Leg Club.
Only membership requirement: Eat 25 slices of pizza, not including the crusts.
Every Tuesday we would go to the local Pizza Inn for their buffet. From 5 to 9,
we would eat and have fun. Sometimes we would bring our Dungeons and Dragons
stuff and play.
I held the record of 37 slices when we all went off to college.

And I have no doubt that the bothersome extra 15 pounds I have had since then is
composed of pizza fat, LOL!

Now days, if I really really tried, I could stuff down a large pizza and maybe another
couple of slices, but it would hurt, that's for sure!

Poor waitress... she got a $2 tip, which we thought was good at the time. (early 80's).
