    This raises the question, how many buns could you eat before you died? :ninja:

    I have no idea, all I know is that death by cake is not especially dignified, impressive maybe, but not dignified.
     
  4. Like, if you are gonna die during an eating competition, shouldn't it be by the truly baaaaad for you foods, like hot wings or hot dogs???

    Remember the chick who died recently from drinking too much water in a silly radio contest?

    Well, if you're going to die, you might as well do it with the delicious taste of cake lingering in your mouth.

    What worries me about this story is that it doesn't say how much he ate or what killed him. Did he choke? Too high blood sugar? I have no idea what the problem actually is! Now I'm worried I could die of eating too much cake...this had never occurred to me before.
     
  8. I watched a jalepeno eating contest at a car show last summer. That was insane. I would have died doing that. Can you imagine coming in second?? Firey shizits for the next 3 days and nothing to show for it :scowl:

    I think the 1 gal milk challenge is still the best and safest. Has anyone ever done it and kept it down??

    this all happened within minutes of my house... Monkey is my local gigging venue. really nice place, really nice people. didn't know the chap involved, but it's a crying shame, the atmosphere has been absolutely dismal around here, a few bands have dropped out of gigs the last few days there.

    I think he must have been a student, the place is very popular amongst youngsters.

    still, what a way to go. this could only happen in wales, I swear!

    PS: he had 5 fairy cakes lodged in his throat. be fair, *5*! :eyebrow:

    EDIT: just saw that some of you were asking how he died, yeah, he did choke.
     
  15. lol. I do that ALL the time! ;)

    What a shame

    such a waste
     
  17. What you have to do to the jalepeno's first is fry them with an open flame. Makes them hotter than a habanero pepper.

    I have seen someone get all the milk down, didn't keep it down for long.

    Wow, most people would have stopped shoving cakes into their throat after one got stuck....wouldn't they? Anyway, I do feel sorry for his family, it can't be an easy time for them.

    How do you count half-masticated sponge cakes? Either that's an estimate or the Swansea fuzz have got a world-class confectionery forensics unit.
