Champion Asparagus Eater

Joey Chestnut, one of the world's top-ranked competitive eaters (previously at Neatorama), won the asparagus eating contest at the Stockton Asparagus Festival in California.
Chestnut, who now makes his home in San Jose, captured his fifth career asparagus-chewing championship, devouring 8 pounds, 7 ounces of fried asparagus as hundreds cheered the local hero on.

"It was a great contest," Chestnut said. "The crowd was definitely on my side so I definitely was able to push harder than everybody else, I think."

The 8 pound, 7 ounce tally just missed breaking Chestnut's own world record of 8.8 pounds, set in Stockton in 2008.
