It's California, they wouldn't ban tacos but could demand an stronger new taco regulation.


FRESNO, Calif. — A man died shortly after competing in a taco-eating contest at a minor league baseball game in California, authorities said Wednesday.
Dana Hutchings, 41, of Fresno, died Tuesday night shortly after arriving at a hospital, Fresno Sheriff spokesman Tony Botti said.


So they are planning to open the man and count the tacos.


An autopsy on Hutchings will be done Thursday to determine a cause of death, Botti said. It was not immediately known how many tacos the man had eaten or whether he had won the contest.


Oh, that's the problem. He didn't chew his food. Guys, chew your taco.


“It was like he’d never eaten before,” Boylan said. “He was just shoving the tacos down his mouth without chewing.”

He said Hutchings collapsed and hit his face on a table about seven minutes into the contest, then fell to the ground. The eating contest ended immediately.

A lot of people dont realize after watching people like matt stonie on YouTube they purge the 10 some odd pounds of food. The contest isnt about who can sustain the 20,000 calories afterwards, its who can fit the most on their stomach. Sometimes they keep it down if it's a moderate amount. But you'd need to be on par with the strongest man in the world to metabolize that kind of calorie intake. And even at that those strongmen eat 10,000 or so a day throughout a entire day, not in one sitting.

Well gluttony is considered to be one of the seven "deadly" sins.

Has anyone figured out what he was dying to win? Tacos for life?

So, now consumption of Tacos will be classified as a possible cause of death in the State of California. One more notch on their gun.

And, of course, no one, *NO ONE* needs a fully automatic burrito. Those things are just too deadly to bathrooms.

Seriously, only in the West could people actually die from eating too much whilst many parts of the world die from eating too little
Only in the West could there be cooking programs, Celebrity Chefs and eating contests!
