Marianne posted a wonderful Canadian/France joke yesterday, (http://www.ihavesolved.com/37520/about-scepticism) well here is a great one about the Irish!

A wealthy Texan walks into a small pub in Ireland. He slaps down $500 on the bar and announces, “I got 500 American dollars here, for any of you fellers who can drink ten pints of Guinness in a row”.

Nobody says anything. Everybody looks away, or looks at the floor. One guy leaves.

The Texan orders a drink and starts chatting with the locals. About 5 or 10 minutes later, the guy who left earlier returns. Small, skinny guy. He shyly taps on the Texan’s shoulder and asks him, “Pardon me, sir…but does your offer still stand?”

The Texan stands up and slaps him on the shoulder. “It sure does…set ’em up, Joe!” The bartender expertly pours and sets up ten pints in a row of foaming Guinness. The little guy walks down the line and knocks back every one of them pretty briskly, barely slowing down through the ninth and tenth. He stands there smiling and burps once.

“Well, here’s your money, Seamus!” says the Texan. “But I gotta ask you, where’d you disappear to there for a while?”

“Well, I had to nip over to the other pub…to make sure I could do it.”

I'm even more impressed by these real-life feats:

Miki Sudo ate 41 hot dogs in 10 minutes, and she weighs 126 lbs.  :O

And Joey Chestnut ate 72!  He's not very big either :O :O


I think I'd throw up after 3!  :sick:

41? That is a little over one hot dog every fifteen seconds, O'Tink...!

Virginia, you can see her in action here in the 2015 contest. But she only ate 38 hot dogs on that occasion. :D

Oh Tink, that is hilarious! Competitive eating !!!
