    I watched this on TV. On one hand it was somewhat interesting and exciting. On the other hand it was pretty gross. I wonder if they have Medics standing by at these kind of events in case somebody begins to choke? I really though that guy was going to do that several times. We do some strange stuff in the name of entertainment sometimes, huh?

    Competitive eating is a obsene spectacle.

    I find it difficult ot understand why anyone cares.
