Burp! The results of the first ever World Burping Championship is in: Tim Janus, a 35-year-old pizza chef silenced his competitors with a "lyrical and melodic burp" 18.1 seconds long.
New York's DNAinfo has the story:
Tim "Eater X" Janus, 35, won the contest with an epic 18.1 second belch after drinking roughly 2 gallons — that's right, gallons — of Diet Coke and Mountain Dew.
"I was just trying to condense all the air in my stomach and bring it to the surface," said the 165-pound Janus.
"You just have to force every last bit of air up. It's beautiful, really."
