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

As reported on Eat Feats, the aptly named MayoChallenge.com has set forth a challenge to all aspiring competitive eaters (or crack heads with camcorders and internet access): Consume an entire 32 ounce jar of mayonnaise in a "reasonable amount of time" without puking and you win the pot. So far "the pot" is $280.

Incidentally, the mayonnaise eating record is held by Oleg Zhornitskiy, who downed FOUR 32-ounce bowls of mayo in 8 minutes. Where is he now? Why doesn't he take this easy money? Is he waiting for the pot to get fatter before cracking open the Hellman's?

The cool thing about the Mayo Challenge site, besides its simplistic crudeness, is that they've posted some videos of past failed attempts at the bottom, including the one below from Becky. She's definitely a keeper. Anyhow, the whole thing begs the question, would you try this?

What's the matter? 'Fraid of losing your girlish figure? Honestly I wouldn't do it either, mainly because I know I'd hurl about 20 ounces into it and it would be twice as nasty coming back up.

I'd do it if I wouldn't get in trouble.

You could wear a mask. I'm sure there are some IFOCE eaters who have done that in order to exercise their mega munching freedom.
