Hanukkah craziness

Happy Hanukkah!

On this, the forth crazy night of Hanukkah, I wanted to share something, well, crazy.

Curiously, the Lake Grove National Potato Latke Eating Championship has been all over the news lately.

This year, competitive eater "Furious" Pete Czerwinski (a Canadian by the way) crushed his competition by knocking back 46 latkes in eight minutes. (His closest competior downed a mere 29 in that time.)

As if the landslide victory wasn't shocking enough, it was revealed that Czerwinski had never eaten a latke before the competition!

Eating 46 latkes your first time trying them?!

Now on one hand that's crazy, on the other, unfortunately, I can kinda see how that can happen.
