last night, fourteen fine folks in chicago got together and ate 47.6 lbs of Old Country Buffet. that's 3.4 lbs each. you'll note in a photo captured by one of the amateur competitive eaters, that, as it turns out, one heaping pile of food is only one pound. so almost three and a half plates each of mashed potatoes, fried chicken, creamy coleslaw, fries, peas, corn, jello,...
this: three and a half times over.
i am so, so in awe. deeply, reverently in awe.
