An American just beat a world record that Homer Simpson would have liked to detain.
It happened at the Daytona 500 NASCAR race in Florida. Matt “Megatoad” Stonie has demonstrated its steel stomach by eating 182 slices of bacon in just five minutes.
USA Today noted that the man, who has an athletic body, swallowed nearly three pounds of bacon and about 28 grams of salt.
During the competition, Matt tried somehow to keep his mouth moist to pass many slices of bacon.
“I do not feel bad. I am accustomed to competition-eating that last ten or twelve minutes, during which I eat between 3.5 and five pounds of food. I was well prepared” he admitted after the contest. The man with the iron stomach holds an unenviable record another, which is a record for swallowing a 4.5 pounds birthday cake in less than ten minutes.
