A Slice of Fame

In case you missed it, this past weekend a man named Joey Chestnut claimed victory. His achievement? He managed to eat 45 slices of pizza in 10 minutes.

According to the website, he's very experienced in the field of competitive eating:
There are different methods for making pizza slices easier to swallow, but the 24-year-old California native stuck with the tried-and-true -- folding his and squeezing them in order to get them into his mouth.

Chestnut gained fame on the eating circuit after winning the Coney Island contest in 2007 and then again this year. He also won a hamburger-eating contest in Tennessee last month, taking in 93 Krystal burgers in eight minutes.
