Takeru Kobayashi, eat your heart out

On August 5, 2006, 29-year-old Takeru Kobayashi of Nagano, Japan ate 58 Johnsonville Brats in under 10 minutes.

Today, the torch has been passed to a new generation of eating competitors.

History was made at the Dash Inn on this, the seventh day of November, 2008, when Bulletin editor David Carkuff (new nickname "Scarf up") managed to eat not one, but two Dash patty melts.

My personal adoration of the DPM is no secret. However, I would never have the audacity nor the cojones to choke down two of these grease bombs in one sitting.

Scarf up met the challenge head on and the rest of our table sat in awe as he downed the two DPMs, a plate of potato wedges smothered in nacho cheese, and a banana/chocolate milkshake.

After a hedonistic mauling like that, one would think the young editor would be out for the count. Instead, Scarf up returned to the office and is more productive this afternoon than I've seen him all week.

Kudos to the man who in my mind is this week's athlete of the week.

What goes in must come out.

Good luck with that.
