Bombur vs. Takeru Kobayashi Can't Post

Bombur takes on Japanese competitive eating champ Takeru Kobayashi in a Cram eating contest. Which of our gorgeous gorgers can cram the most Cram down his throat?

Winner gets a lifetime supply of Pepto Bismol and a new set of dentures!


With caffeine, all things are possible.

The pity of Bilbo will screw up the fate of many.

What's the matter, James? No glib remark? No pithy comeback?"

Ooh, this is a tough one. [In reply to] Can't Post

On the one hand, Kobayashi is literally a pro at stuffing himself silly. On the other, Bombur is a Dwarf, so...

Ok, Kobayashi wins unless Dwarven physiology gives Bombur an advantage, which I have no idea if it does.

So many are still waiting for their new beginning. Their birth by sleep. Even me, and even you.

Kobayashi [In reply to] Can't Post

all the way! I love Bombur and, as usual, I sympathize with his plight as the tubby one of the bunch because, as in many movies/books, the tubby one is singled out as the one who screws a bunch of stuff up for everyone else.

Despite my love for Bombur, I have no reason to think that he is on par with a professional eater. There are many reasons that Bombur could be fat, but there is only one reason that Kobayashi is skinny: he's a pro.

The reason you never see fat guys win eating competitions is because fat constricts the stomach from expanding, which is something that guys like Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut must be able to do to win.

The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.
