bread olympics

ppl are saying that they don't get the concept. this originated the other night when dan said he heard something about not being able to eat a piece of bread in under a minute. then shannon proved him wrong by eating [meaing chewing and swalling] a piece of wonder bread in 55 seconds. the next day [last night] jen boasted that she could eat a piece of bread in say, 15 seconds. little did she know...anyhow, we kinda sorta got obsessed with this and decided to film our exploits for the world to view. i'm actually playing with the notion of setting up a site so ppl worldwide can submit videos of their own bread olympic. onwards...all your bread are belong to us. ps. i don't think anyone's realised this yet, but all of the .jpgs below are linked to videos of the actual event [addendum: 8 jul - i had to take the videos down. if you would like to see them, now you'll have to get them by asking me - sorry kids]

sunbeam white bread:


leigh - 1 minute, 24 seconds

shannon - 40 seconds

jen - 38 seconds

dan - 1 minute, 36 seconds

pepperidge farm sourdough first heat


leigh - 1 minute, 47 seconds

shannon - 1 minute, 5 seconds

jen - 1 minute, 15 seconds

dan - 1 minute, 41 seconds

pepperidge farm sourdough second heat


jen - 1 minute, 18 seconds

I hate to be the voice that makes itself heard.

Let me clarify for NO reason at all. Shannon said she heard that bread couldn't be eaten in 60 seconds, I called bullshit, then we both ate a slice in 55 seconds flat.

How I got 1:36 or whatever it was in the final is beyond me. Maybe it had something to do with me talking and laughing while i did it. Or my not having hair.

Or me not having a dog.

Or even the moon.

Hell, what's important is that we all know it wasn't my fault.

Damn---I wish my webcam wasn't broken, because I know I could eat a slice in under one minute. However, we have to get some standards here. Standard white Wonder Bread can be rolled up and compressed into a little nugget the size of a jawbreaker candy, so in theory someone could eat that within 20 seconds. Yuck!

(BTW, get a program to convert AVI into MPEG so that those files don't take up so long to download!)

:-)
