And in a slighty related story...I'm Stuffed!!! But still heating up a plate of leftover bird and mashed taters as I type. (moan)

Now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout! I would never have guessed that the Black Widow of all people would wind up resorting to "The Roman Method." That, I would aver, is a serious upset.

I too was surprised to hear about the widow, but more amazed at the 4.8 lb total for the winner! Ye Gods I thought I could put away the turkey! (Hmmm....piece of pumpkin pie before beddy bye sounds good right about now.......)

From the article: Tim "Eater X" Janus, the reigning tiramisu-eating champion of the world, who said he had been seeing a sports psychologist to improve his technique. Okay, this guy might just officially be the Biggest. Dork. Evar. First, the tiramasu-eating champion of the world?! No worthwhile competitive eater would even bring that up in mixed company! Tiramasu?! Please. Kobayashi wouldn't even give a tiramasu-eatin' punk like you the time of day. Second, a sports psychologist? To improve your eating technique? How about an actual psychiatrist, to examine exactly what went wrong in your life that caused you to want to slap an Ultimate Warrior paintjob on your face and eat freakin' tiramisu all day long? And, I will now be printing up a limited edition line of T-shirts bearing the slogan, "I made Sonya Thomas gag, and all I got was this stupid T-shirt."

Sonya Thomas says "There was too much in my mouth, I couldn't swallow." Ya might want to stick that onthe back of the t-shirt...

Too bad about Sonya Thomas, dry turkey is the bain of many Thanksgiving diners everywhere. They should have gotten Alton Brown involved to soak the turkeys in seasoned brine the night before to ensure a moist, juicy bird! Here's hoping she returns next year!

I have to disagree with TBH I think more people need to integrate the "Ultimate Warior" look into their daily lives. I may start sporting it at my bank. crisply pressed dress shirt $60, Brooks Brothers tie $40, Ultimate Warrior face paint Priceless. I bet no one ever questions "Eater X" about his work performance. "Johnson, who filled out these TPS reports?" "Sir, I think that it was Tim 'Eater X' Janus." "Oh, never mind just try and dress them up a bit."
