Are you ready for Thanksgiving?

Winning Streak Continues For Champion Eater
Associated Press - February 2, 2006

A 100-pound woman ate 26 grilled cheese sandwiches in 10 minutes at a New York restaurant, winning the World Grilled Cheese Eating Championship.

Sonya Thomas won $8,000 for the contest at the Planet Hollywood restaurant in Times Square on Wednesday but said she was disappointed in her performance.

"I could have done better," she said, adding that she was aiming for 30 sandwiches.

Thomas, who is known as the "Black Widow" on the competitive circuit, says she has a naturally big stomach capacity and heavily soaked her sandwiches in water to make them easier to swallow.

She holds numerous world eating records, including 46 dozen oysters in 10 minutes, 11 pounds of cheesecake in 9 minutes, 48 chicken tacos in 11 minutes, 37 hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes and 56 hamburgers in 8 minutes.

The event was organized by, an Internet casino and poker room.

And she looks great! I wonder if those oysters made her sick. Maybe this will be the newest diet craze . . .

Totally. I just realized that the article says she ate 46 DOZEN oysters in 10 minutes. That's 552 oysters, at a rate of almost 1 OPS (oysters per second)!
