Joey Chestnut, Burger King

This mind-boggling feat has received much attention. In the world of competitive eating, it is being described as a 'Roger Bannister moment'. Who know where competitive eating will go from here? Poor Joey (nickname Jaws) describes himself as 'drained'. Roger Bannister, had he been able to speak at the time and had anyone had the cheek to ask for a quote, would probably have said much the same. The things we humans do.


  1. Roger Bannister was never a guy.

  2. Are you sure about that? Perhaps he had his name legally changed at some point.

  3. He was, Randal, a gentleman. They don't do sports any more. The physique ruins the hang of a suit.
