Man eats 21 pounds of grits for title (AP via Yahoo! News)
Pat Bertoletti, a mohawk-sporting chef from Chicago, gulped down 21 pounds of buttery, goopy grits in 10 minutes to win $4,000 in the first World Grits Eating Championship at Louisiana Downs on Saturday.
The grits were presented in 2-pound trays, each about 8 inches by 6 inches and 1 1/2 inches deep, said Ryan Nerz, a spokesman for Major League Eating.
If I don't love you baby,
grits ain't groceries,
eggs ain't poultry,
and Mona Lisa was a man.
