If you had to enter an eating contest...
« on: August 07, 2007, 03:40:00 PM »

The twoiron thread about the dude that ate 40 bananas got me thinking.

I know that guy was forced to eat them, but I bet I could only eat 4-5 bananas voluntarily.  I'm thinking that if I had an eating contest with an average person picked off the street featuring bananas, I would lose.

But with other foods I like my chances.  I used to have eating contests with my friends in high school and college with pizza, or 10 cent wings, or fries from The "O".  I don't remember the numbers, but they weren't as high as I would have expected.  I know I'd be terrible at hotdogs, though, especially because of the buns.

If you could pick the food for an eating contest against a group of average people (non-professional eaters), what food do you think you could put away better than most?

Desserts (brownies, choc chip cookies, ice cream, pies)?
Paella? Cheezits? Chowda? Spider rolls?
Less common foods (Beef Wellington, Thousand-year-old-eggs)?

Shepherds Pie  Thumbs Up

I haven't had Hush Puppies since I was a kid and that was at Long John Silver's, so that probably doesn't even count.


In the past I might have put bacon on my list since it's rare that I ever have my fill of bacon. (bacon at buffets are usually kind of soggy)  But there have been a few times recently at the end of ski trips where we've bought huge amounts of bacon and have to either eat it all or throw it away.  I now no longer wonder what it's like to be able to eat so much bacon that I will turn it down.  Embarrassed

I can definitely hold my own with chocolate donuts.  Most folks get sick after only 2 or 3.  Not me!   Grin

Isn't the "O" in Pittsburgh? I thought you went to that school called Kornell in Ithaka.

Heh, high school was in Pittsburgh (Fox Chapel to be more precise).


I'm going to add scrapple to my list.

You think, perhaps, one is related to the other?
