The Hartford Courant reports that the family of Caitlin Nelson is suing Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT for allowing a pancake eating contest on March 30, 2017 that resulted in her death following choking. The objective of the lawsuit is not just to exact monetary damages, but to "expose the danger of amateur eating contests and to prevent other families from experiencing such a tragedy".

    They should ban bull ridin’ I guess while they are at it, maybe toss in dart throwin’ because some people already have only one eye.

    They should always always have an EMT on site of every contest. MLE insists upon that.
