November 12th, 2015: Eating Contests

Worldwide humans have always held contests, from one-on-one to group competitions. American pioneers had few options for group competitions, but eating or drinking contests were always possible. Drinking bouts tended to involve alcohol, and tended to get rowdy, so for community events that was right out. But eating contests have continued with gusto. Watermelon, pie, oysters, hot dogs, whatever was plentiful. Gluttony is good. USA! USA! USA!

Retronaut has a picture gallery of many of these wholesome community affairs.
This one captioned, "Nov. 4, 1948 Broadway show girls compete in a hands-free spaghetti-eating contest."

I just don't get how people can eat 400+ buffalo wings. That's unpossible.

I like the portions in this one. You can have a contest eating a moderate amount of food. It doesn't have to be a display of gluttony.

Bangers are easy. Try throwing spaghetti some time.

The second lady from the left has the right idea...You ain't doing it right unless you get all over ya.

Yes, but the second from the right looks like she can suck the right size.
