I claim this land for me.

But did you read about the grapfruits or cocktail stick usage? I think not.

Go figure.

How the shiat is eating alot of a certain food considered art? Oye.. I'm gonna go over to the art gallery, eat a pumpkin or something and see if I can get a grant.

He he. That reminds me of the time I went to the SF MOMA and there was an exhibit there called 'my father' and it was a glass bowl full of licorace. Which people ate, and then was empty. The only thing that determines whether art is 'art' and how much it is worth is whose parties you go to.

Haha, the name says it all, I'm sure if there was an "AK-47" team, Lil' Ol' Laden would root for them.

I like pudding.

I was worried for a while, but I still hold the record for eating peas with a spork during a blue moon.

Soon I plan on setting the record for eating raisins with chopsticks during a meteor shower.

That's 'tarded

In my opinion, it's only art if he barfs them back out onto a canvas.

I'm confused. According to my copy of the Guiness Book of World Records, gluttony records are no longer accepted...
2001-11-12 07:50:48 AM  
The draft should've been based on these people.

SomeCallMeTim: Don't give them any ideas.
2001-11-12 08:49:19 AM  
I don't think its the fact that its gluttony, but the fact that he was eating all the peas with a toothpick. I guess its acceptable if you got the difficulty of spearing the peas first.
2001-11-12 08:58:00 AM  
Oi! What is it with Performance Artists? Why are they always so intent on "[forcing people]to look at them in a different light"? Can't we think for ourselves?

And I love that he had a paramedic there. If he'd choked and died, would that have been art, too?
2001-11-12 08:59:18 AM  
I bet this guy is just beating the women off with a farking stick
2001-11-12 12:15:13 PM  
And it's for stunts like these that those suicide bombers crashed planes into the WTC and Pentagon. They'd seen enough of Western Culture and decided "enough is enough!"

"anything Andy Warhol said is bullshiat"

2001-11-12 12:33:04 PM  
so does this mean that fat people get records for eating so much and doing nothing healthy about it?
2001-11-12 01:27:18 PM  
"...(failed) attempt to break the world record for the most number of sweet corn kernels eaten in three minutes. He failed but he did set a new UK record."

I wonder what the Ethiopian record is.
2001-11-12 01:45:21 PM  
I loved when they said he "smashed" the old standard by four peas.
2001-11-12 01:57:07 PM  
That there boy is a round produce eatin fool.
2001-11-12 01:57:39 PM  
Lets give that boy a hand!

i know. it sucked.
2001-11-12 02:38:31 PM  
It's only art if it sells.
2001-11-12 02:55:59 PM  
"it has a wide appeal"

2001-11-12 03:33:30 PM  
The world record for eating pea's AND the world record for eating grapes? you, sir, are king of kings
2001-11-12 10:07:53 PM  
I think the only gluttony Guinness record allowed should be for mountain oysters and beer. Once you've seen a man go for the gusto with gonads, washing them with Blackened Voodoo, peas just don't do it for you anymore.
2001-11-12 10:23:16 PM  
Will he pea grapes now? haha
