Man Eats 47 Cheese Sandwiches in 10 Min.
Man Sets Record By Downing 47 grilled cheese sandwiches in 10 minutes

LAS VEGAS Jun 12, 2006 (AP) There's a rising star on the competitive eating circuit. California man Joey Chestnut downed 47 grilled cheese sandwiches in ten minutes this weekend in Las Vegas to set a world record. That's eleven more sandwiches than the old record of 36.

Last month, Chestnut ate 50 hot dogs. Some say he's a threat to the reigning champ of food stuffing, Japan's Takeru Kobayashi.

Chestnut won the grilled cheese contest sponsored by the International Federation of Competitive Eating, the same group that runs the annual Fourth of July hot dog eating contest at New York's Coney Island.

47 cheese sandwiches? Might as well just stick a cork up your ass. To steal a line from Bad Santa: "you won't shit right for a week!"

They could have been made with whole grain bread? That would help push all that cheeze out the exhuast pipe!

Wow, he was 11 sandwiches over the old record? That's amazing. That's like a running back getting 2,800 yards rushing, or a quarterback throwing for 6,700 yards. He shattered the record.
