The 19th Annual Thanksgiving Day Challenge

In the fall of 1996 (YOLD 3162) some friends of mine and I challenged each other to a eating contest on Thanksgiving Day. The rules were simple: record everything you eat from midnight to midnight on Thanksgiving Day, and I would decide who ate the most. The winner would recieve the Order of the Fizzy Bicarbonate and the accolade of millions. Thus was born the Thanksgiving Day Challenge.

The tradition has continued on into its nineteenth year, changing little since the original contest. One no longer needs to eat the most (although that certainly helps), but rather eat the best in the Spirit of the Thanksgiving Day Challenge. That's a bit hard to define, but when looking at each entry every year, I usually find one that has just a bit something extra.

This year, the winner is Frank Poduska, who started off the day, wisely, with a course of vitamins and anti-heartburn medications. I'm convinced Frank won this in the past, but I presently can't find my e-mail archives going that far back.


Back to the mothership.
