if he be not a god...

he must at least be some minor deity....

I do appreciate how everyone in IFOCE and the eating biz has cool nicknames (Takeru "The Tsunami" Kobayashi, Eric "Badlands" Booker, and, of course, Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas). It occurs to me that these names are all on the aggrandizing side, though: they'd look good airbrushed onto the gas tank of Harley, but they're a bit over the top for troubling gastrointestinal cases ("The Tsunami"? Why not "Kobe Earthquake"?). I'll take it on myself to come up with some new ones for up-and-coming competitive eaters, free of charge:
Eddie "Ex-lax" Altoona
Atsushi "Big-eater" Ito
Mike "The Gut" Guttersen
Obvious? Yes. This is competitive eating, not fucking chess.

Err, that's not to be confused with fucking-chess, which'd be what the Renn Faire employees get up to after hours on ye olde human chessboard.

Worth a trip to the hall of records (in need of an update since last week).

The Tsunami also excels at cow brains!

And I have a deep respect for the eater of Hamentaschen. Those things are indigestible past number four. After that you're pretty much chewing starch with teeth and muscles, not amylase.
