Sport: Eating Contest
Vinegar- Baking Soda Eating   (+6, -5)  [vote for, against]
baking-soda-and-vinegar eating contest

Another one of those "extreme" eating contests. Instead of trying to eat the most hotdogs, pancakes or goldfish in a given time span, contestants will try to consume the most vinegar and baking soda tablets. For a "legal" win, contestants must also be able to hold it all in for a specified amount of time after the last tabet has been swallowed and the last drop drunk. A variation of this would be to consume the most baking soda, vinegar, purple food coloring and liquid dishwashing soap.

Their "safety standards" don't mention baking soda, but do come out strongly against ... training. [jutta, Sep 25 2005]

I assume that there would be paramedics standing by.

I'm tempted to bun the variation.

Could we eat the vinegar/baking soda, AND some hotdogs? I once did that "eat as many hotdogs as you can" thing, and couldn't get past 12. I don't know how that 140 pound Japanese guy who holds the world record ate 50+.

sounds like the stuff I had to drink before "the procedure" which is a thing males and females must go through at the half-century mark. you know the one.

Kobiashi is beyond belief. This idea is crazy.

//Kobiashi is beyond belief.// Yeah, he is! Somehow he gets huge amounts of hotdogs/cow brains/potato wedges/etc., down his stomach, and still stays thin. That is just not fair.

<grumpy old fart> Eating contests are the acme of stupidity. Aside from the real and obvious danger to your life (bowel distention / bursting, colitis, heart failure, lung collapse, choking..) just imagine a group of starving Africans watching you do it. <grumpy old fart/>

"How come you're always such a fussy young man
Don't want no Captain Crunch, don't want no Raison Bran
Well, don't you know that other kids are starving in Japan
So eat it, just eat it"

Funny how it was Japan he mentioned.

UnnaBubba- forget foodcoloring and do it naturally. I'ld imagine some people would be vomiting ferociously and I'm sure some blood would follow. I suppose some people might be excreteing quite ferociously too but I don't care to judge that type of volcano. -*shudders*

Undigested food in the stomach won't ruin the stomach. Passing through, it will wreak havoc on your intestinal flora though. Why did I put this in "urban sport" ?? I dunno.

Don't forget the trampoline bouncing component of all this!
