Man-sizedÂ eater Joey "Jaws" Chestnut is the burrito-eating champion after winning the title at theÂ New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque on Saturday when he ate 47 burritos in 10 minutes. The previous record was for eating 33 1/2 burritos.Â Chestnut is known for his hot dog eating championship at Coney Island on the Fourth of July.
"Chestnut, of San Jose, Calif., won $1,500 for the feat in New Mexico Saturday. The burritos in the Garcia's World Burrito Eating Championship were stuffed with beef, beans and the state's famous green chile," according to Yahoo News.
What is so incredible here is that people do this for a living. Is this healthy for the body to have to digest that manyÂ burritos in a short period of time? Does this man go around the country and actually make a living by eating enormous amounts of food quickly?
Does Joey "Jaws" Chestnut not have a family to tell him to cut it out, and get a real job? This is not amusing; it's sad and should be illegal.
