    Oysters are a technique driven debris food, if in the shell. If in a cup, then its an eating contest.

    What about that oyster eating powerhouse, Bob Shoudt? How many scores did he siphon down?

    Colin Shirlow 212
    Megatoad 203
    Notorious BOB 174

    Report soon with exclusive interviews and vids.

    Guinness really good. Local whiskey very effective. Pissed it down. It rains in Norn Iron.

    Recap. Last year Colin Shirlow 233 (eqaualled his record); Sonya Thomas 208. Reason for 3 min sprint is apparently due to the Guinness Book of Records.

    Amateurs: Rich Gamble/Gambol won with 30 oysters in 23 seconds. David Allen tied this figure after doing 30 in 22 seconds in heats on Thursday. However, Rich won as he only had one oyster on tray as debris or somthing while David had
    two. Or something. Awaiting vote at UN to find out exactly why Rich won and not David. Repeat: Local whiskey very effective.

    Some eaters can actually look back and say MLE took care of them when others got shit . Booker enjoyed a vacation in Hawaii to eat onions. Shoudt went to Ireland. Collins, Livingston Conti and a few others went on a good will mission to entertain troops. Biggest eater contest in China with Wontons. Others were passed up received nothing and still stayed loyal to MLE. The spoiled Lefever’s got plenty of free trips and interviews on major networks and it still wasn’t good enough for them.

    I guarantee they will never send those two to Ireland again. They went for the free trip. Sonya would have earned it

    @ “… Jack Shit”,

    For just once, can you be happy for others? You must have stayed with MLE through the years for a reason. To say you “got jack” is idiotic. If thats true (no friends? memories? prizes?), if you felt like you were getting absolutely nothing out of it, youre a moron for staying. No one was forcing you to be there, sheesh. And look, they even kept your pickle title separate as a gift.

    In one breath, you reminisce about “the good ol days,” and you relentlessly complain in the next. Pick an angle and move on with it.

    PS, major networks provide plenty of coverage on the homeless, the unkempt, the tired, loney and desolate. Your turn is soon to come around. Patience, friend.

    at 502am. the person you are referring to has hired someone to find out the names and address of the haters on this blog. such as yourself that have posted nasty lies about competitive eaters.Yeah there is someone out there that will take care of the job for the right price. As a bonus he is going to find out the name and address of the anonymous administrator Maybe OJ should get to work and start deleting some of the incriminating evidence that goes back as far as 2005 . Yeah yeah you can deny it as delusional or whatever you want to believe but your little party will be over very soon. You think by not addressing someone by his real name or alluding to third parties will get you off the hook? Think again. BTW maybe the unkempt homeless person you are referring to is your mother or the other half that created your sorry hateful lying ass ! BTW don’t refer to him as your friend

    You dumb pathetic loser 502 i would bet that if you came face to face with the guy that kept his pickle title , he would break every one of your fingers so you wouldn’t be able to type any longer. That would actually be a blessing in disguise because your grammar skills match your horrendous breath

    Hooray for Rake and Herald as Ignatius attends an actual event. That is the real news though what he and his band write is fantastic whether there or not. Really looking forward to all. The real lead of this post suddenly got buried in pickle juice. Threats and breaking fingers? Really now, how about going to eat oysters and drink beer. Happiness can be found in small pleasures.

    I hope Sam didn’t screw over future eaters by promising an actual competition. 174 oysters – seriously what did we just pay for? My mom ate 174 oysters last night at the quiz.

    I guess 10:05 since you are here commenting you have no life and are not a real person? Interesting illogic. Same applies to Seiken threats. Is he going to go personally and physically maim each person he thinks is stalking him and causing him harm? Some of us went public kindly and then not, it made no difference. More empty threats because if OJ could have been “outed”, it would have been done long ago. Not by hiring someone no matter the price, that is BS BS, it isn’t about money. For me I like the mystery. Don’t like it, don’t like it here? Don’t read or comment. It is that simple.

    You think Seiken is just talking out of his ass?. He’s using the same guy Howard Stern used to find the cyber bullies that make personal attacks about him on here There is a fine line drawn between being funny and being brutal

    Several low life cowards post their real name on occasion just to throw you off but then revert back to their anonymous hating ways . I am not referring to BS either

  32. anonymous said

    September 9, 2013 @ 9:58 am

    730 am its not about using physical harm. Its about being on equal terms . How would you like it if the person throwing stones at you is wearing a mask which makes it kind of hard for you to identify your attacker? They know so much about you but at the same time have an unfair advantage. I am sure Seiken has a keen idea of who these select few haters are, but the only one that really knows is OJ and he’s not giving an inch. Instead of pointing fingers which could hurt the innocent, pinpointing the real source would give the victim a chance to fire back the same way he’s been crucified on this site. Fair is fair right?

  33. anonymous said

    September 9, 2013 @ 1:10 pm

    anyone that visits this site on a frequent basis anonymous or not, has no life or a very poor one. That goes for the Seiken haters as well as Seiken. If they had a real life they wouldnt be throwing people under a bus

    Seiken really your ideas are so far out of the ballpark that it is just incomprehensible. You bring everything on yourself, claim to be a victim after trashing people, then you want want want want. You are not Howard Stern, you do not have his millions. The comparison is ridiculous.

    Also covers Nugget Ribs and Buffalo Wing Fest and includes exclusive quotes from Matt ‘Megatoad’ Stonie, Bob ‘Notorious B.O.B.’ Shoudt and Miki Sudo.

    Great write up on those oysters, Iggy! I agree with you that Matt and Bob did amazingly well, especially for not having competed in an oyster event before. And Colin is just being Colin. The man is the Prince of that event.
