    @7:02, those two may be good eaters, but they’re 2 of the worst people in CE. Face only amateurs, don’t tip wait staff, create racist posts, use people, the list goes on.

    George told me one day there will be an accident that could shut all this down. The totals are getting bigger and badder. Someone could or will have and I hope not an accident of the result of food eating contests.
