I love eating. I really do, but sometimes, when I really think about it, I’m shocked by the whole thing. I mean, have you ever really thought about what eating food really is? We take plants and animals that we’ve cultivated/butchered/prepared and then savagely attack it with our teeth, until it’s a shapeless mush, so that we can steal the nutrients from it and turn it into poop. Sounds less awesome now right?
Then you throw in people that make a living by eating, in a competitive sense; soaking hot dog buns, swallowing food whole, stuffing their face full of pie, just to win a ribbon or a trophy. It’s kinda barbaric and disgusting (but also secretly awesome to watch). Then, if that wasn’t bad enough, there are people out that that hold records for not only eating a shit-ton of food at once, but eating the most disgusting things we can find, and doing it with a smile on their face.
I think I’m gonna need a bucket.
