Oy! His poor stomach. (No Comment).
It's called the International Federation of Competitive Eating, and Charles Hardy is its glutton di tutti i gluttons. Hardy, a 360-pound corrections officer in New York, has devoured a fifteen-and-a-half foot uncut roll of sushi in thirty minutes and inhaled twenty-three-and-a-half hot dogs in twelve minutes, according to the Columbia News Service. "And he became the first non-Jewish participant to win a New York deli's matzo-ball eating showdown in 2001, when he downed thirteen of the baseball-sized dumplings in twelve minutes," the news service notes.
