Sure, Frump’s sample size may be relatively small, but — until someone comes forward with something superior to what’s documented by this footage from the 2011 Andy’s Big A Burger Challenge in Mount Olive, North Carolina — we’re sticking with our assertion that this is, in fact, the greatest puke save in the history of competitive eating, if not competition in general.
After all, this isn’t your average “keeping it in” save — our guy in the green shirt’s vomit actually achieves full blown expulsion before being corralled back into the sanctuary of the competitive eater’s innards.
The fact that the utter disgust of witnessing such a feat nearly eliminated some of the competition –looking at you, contestant in black– makes the save all the more impressive.
Only adding to the epic nature of this event, note too that one of the lovely judges in the back catches a chunk or two in the face. Pure inspiration, folks.
Here at Frumpzilla, we know that even the handiest of Frumpsters occasionally need assistance with cleaning up and/or remodeling around the house and office. With that in mind, we just wanted to share some news about one of our friend’s latests ventures: Home & Office Maintenance Enterprises, Inc. — or “HOME Inc.”
Meet Steven Hoag, of Sharpsburg, North Carolina. He may or may not be afraid of many things, but tornadoes — almost certainly — aren’t one of those things.
Protected only by his built Ford tough truck, Hoag nonchalantly calls his wife from a parking lot adjacent to the Wilson, North Carolina Walgreens. Likely nothing out of the ordinary for Steven — other than that tornado racing towards him from about half a mile away.
Yep, there it goes. Busting up power lines; ripping off the roofs of houses; plowing through Walgreens; erratically dispersing debris along its path of destruction. Just the kind of stuff tornadoes do, you know? The kind of thing Steven Hoag takes a calm, cool, collected approach to.
That’s just how Eastern North Carolina rolls, folks. Laid back, come what may attitude to any and all of life’s little problems — except snow, of course.
A good 1/2 inch of snow means it’s time to head down to the bomb shelter. Sure, it’s well-stocked, but life as we otherwise know it stops for 72 hours after a nice dusting. As it should…
