Human vs. Elephant Eating Contest

Last Friday was my first of two mornings and two eating contests in a row at Coney Island! This contest was a little different than the normal ones – it pitted three of the best competitive eaters on the circuit against three of the finest elephants the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus had to offer! Since elephants do not eat meat they were not eating hot dogs…they were eating hot dog buns!

The elephants were introduced first and then the eaters: Eric Badlands Booker, Tim Gravy Brown, and Juliet Lee.

They took their positions…and then the elephants started eating! George Shea didn’t even call it to start yet! The elephants totally cheated and got a head start! Just sayin’.

The elephants’ pace seemed to be slower. They didn’t have the urgency of the other eaters. And once in a while they got a bit confused and started grabbing at bananas instead!

But both groups trouped on stuffing their mouths with hot dog buns for six minutes! When time was called it was tough to say…the eaters went at a fast pace but could only fit a bun or two at a times in their mouths. The elephants took the slow and steady pace but grabbed trunks full of buns at a time.

And then the results…the three eaters ate 147 buns…but the elephants came out ahead with a whopping 505!

So in the great rivalry between the elephant and the human, the elephants triumphed! But I am sure one day they shall meet again…
