Lean, mean, taco-eating machine: Man devours 103 tacos in eight minutes

Let’s admit it, you really like tacos. While it is hardly the best thing to come out of Mexico (think Salma Hayek), it is a nice, bite-sized crunch, perfect for that 5 o’clock hunger. And who hasn’t given in to temptation by having an extra taco or two? But by any yardstick, this guy perhaps took his taco love a little too far.

A competition to determine, once and for all, the burning question of who is the biggest taco fan in the universe, saw this (rather hungry) guy gobble up...wait for it...103 tacos in eight minutes.

Take a moment to watch Matt Stonie devour 103 tacos in 8 minutes here:

One hundred and three.

That is one taco every four and a half seconds. The time it takes Usain Bolt to run 100 metres, Matt Stonie has already devoured two tacos and is already eyeing a third one with a special glint in his eyes. In the time you took to read this copy, he has powered through 40 more. He could almost eat a taco every time you say the word taco.

PS: While Stonie hogged the limelight (and several dozens of tacos), one other guy was quietly going about achieving something even more stunning. Enrique Recalde, who finished 10th in the contest, could manage just seven tacos in eight minutes. When surrounded by kilos and kilos of free tacos in front of him, he still showed remarkable restraint to stop after seven. Respect.
