Please stop with the Eating Contests

September 13, 2010 by  

Ok, really, have we not yet reached the point where enough is enough with the eating contests? Seriously, I just don’t care if some 120-pound Japanese guy can eat 546 hot dogs in 10 minutes, or if Joey Chestnut can choke down 33 burritos:

Competitive eater Joey Chestnut, AKA Jaws, has downed 47 burritos in 10 minutes at the New Mexico state fair in Albuquerque, beating the previous record of 33. Chestnut, of San Jose, California, won $1,500 for the feat on Saturday.

Known for his hotdog eating, Chestnut also won the annual July Fourth hotdog-eating contest on Coney Island, New York, for the fourth year in a row this summer.

The Garcia’s World Burrito Eating Championship was supported by the International Federation of Competitive Eating, which oversees all international professional eating contests.

Here’s the Major League Eating Web site: Give them a call, and tell them about world hunger and the U.S. economy. At very least, let them know that eating contests are just too gauche to exist any longer. Joey Chestnut and that Japanese guy must have some secondary skills to fall back on.
