There is no point.
They are unhealthy ... and even dangerous.
I remember when this happened a few years back.

I remember that, too.

Sure, it's hard to pack away 181 wings (or hotdogs, or whatever), but what's the achievement other than Biggest Glutton?

Reminds of tomato throwing in Spain:

I never understood the point of that, neither. Seems like an awful waste of perfectly edible tomatoes!



(RESPECT - if you are Spanish - no offense intended)

Very dangerous to health also. Overloading the digestive organs is very risky.
Acute Pancreatitus etc., Why anyone would risk that is a very good quesiton.
