"It is possible to die from eating. But I think to be professional means you don't die." (Takeru Kobayashi)

It's a stereotype that all Japanese dogs are small!

Liz from Urban Honking has an awesome side job. I'm not sure what she does for her real job (Liz, what do you do for your real job?), but in her spare time she gets behind-the-scenes access to all the biggest IFOCE events (at least those in the northeast United States). When she writes about her adventures on the circuit, it's probably the best competitive eating coverage on the internet.

Her blogging efforts also afford her the opportunity to chill with the eaters before and after each competition. This weekend she attended the taping of three episodes of the IFOCE's "Eats of Strength" series in Islandia, NY. Check out her write-up and don't forget to also view the Flickr photo set.

The above shot of the venerable and aptly named Crazy Legs Conti is just a taste of what's available at her photo set. Also available? A few pictures of Eater X the day after he got a perm at a salon in Chelsea.

Aw, you are so sweet. My real job is in publishing.

If you want to see the perm in action, you can check out the video :-)
