Sweet Corn Overload: 33 Ears In 12 Minutes
In honor of the approaching summer months, here is footage of the 2009 National Sweet Corn Eating Championship, in which the winning contestant consumed 33 ears in 12 minutes (roughly an ear every 20 seconds). Break out the dental floss!
We are particular fans of contestants Crazy Legs Conti (the white guy with dreadlocks) and Sonya Thomas, AKA “The Black Widow” (the tiny Korean woman). Sadly, neither of them won, but we will likely write more about their significant accomplishments in future posts.
