Watch the below video and witness the World Bacon Eating Championship, which went down in St. Louis yesterday afternoon. The winner--charmingly named Dave "Coondog Dawg" O'Karma--wolfed down 40 rashers in the five-minute time frame. Frankly, we're not impressed--we've done that many strips in far less time. We don't even find the world record of 54 pieces in five minutes all that daunting. Look for BDJ lab techs to enter the world of competitive bacon eating soon.
Incidentally, the event was sponsored by Beggin' Strips; however, the strips consumed were real meat, not the faux-pork canine treats.
