No Fries With That?

I despise eating contests. Frankly, I'd be ashamed to participate in one when so many people are going hungry. And I'm not talking about Ethiopia. I wonder how many homeless and hungry people this guy may have passed on his way to Denny's Beer Barrel Pub where he consumed a burger weighing in at 20 pounds.

When asked what possessed him to eat a burger that big, Sciullo said: "I wanted to see if I could."


For completing the challenge in the under-five-hour time limit, Sciullo won $400, three T-shirts, a certificate "and a burger hangover, as I call it," Liegey said.

After he finishes what might be a world-record bowel movement, he should donate that $400 to a local food bank.
