And then the rigortortas set in... 🌮 If I were a condemned prison, I would request 25 tacos with extra hot sauce for my last meal. I'm sorry for his family... that being said... food eating contests are a disgusting form of gluttony in a world filled with starving people. I'm sure there are plenty of other contests that can be created to fill the void without such 'fun'. 😶

This is exactly why I don't eat Mexican food Imagine just wanting to eat a taco and dying :( KNX1070 Very sad. This is why I've always said that eating contests are a bad idea.

One of the 7 deadly sins...gluttony. Contests like this should stop!
