    all i know is back in 2004 Seiken wiping the floor with Goldstein in matzah balls was like watching a bully kick sand in a sissys face. After the contest Goldstein says in an interview “I was honored to be competing against a legend” True story

    In 2004 Seiken was still living of the high of his bogus pickle title, his world came to a end when Jarvis mopped up the floors with him at Carnigie deli. I heard afterwards, Seiken wept in his pickle bowl.

    It’s official and petty sad Brian Douchebag Seikin has killed this site. Haven’t been back in about a year and it is nothing like it was a several years ago. The data is still stellar but who wants or needs a lonely mans absurd comments in every other post? Boring as f**k. What a sad existence he must have. I’ll check back in another year. Yawn… See Ya

    If memory serves correct Seiken admitted he got lucky beating Jarvis by a hairline fracture in pickles in 2002 . He was not the favorite going into the 2004 contest and did not weep over the loss . He congratulated Jarvis on a job well done unlike you

    Oink Oink Shiten and his fans are destroying this site, which it what they want I assume. It’s a great shame that there isn’t a credible alternative site. A site with good, well worded, inoffensive content together with an attractive design.
    I would imagine any journalist worth a grain of salt would denounce these types of spamming inane posts.
    I will still read the stories, but the quality of the comments is at an all time low, hijacked by one, or a few individual that spoil it for everybody.

    It’s a shame that on numerous occasions some people have said that they will never post here again, but here they still are. If they hate this site so much can they just take care of their site and leave this one alone. PLEASE PLEASE. But if they arn’t true to their word…

    I think oj should disable the comments for a few months, or ensure that signup is mandatory.

    Hot off the press beautifulbrian.com is coming back in 2018. The haters should be prepared to get slandered libel words you never heard in the bible . I hear he is devoting an entire page to Allen Goldstein hard life with pics and never before seen videos of Godlstein without the toupee

    It seems that another Brian Brian Dudzinski is on a mission to harm himself even further. According to this video he intends on gaining 100 lbs then losing it
