An elephant versus a human in an eating contest is something of a mismatch. Now don't get me wrong, a human can eat a shit load of food if he puts his mind to it and doesn't get perturbed about taking a monster dump later. But against an elephant the human will come second every time.
However, let's applaud the three dudes flying the human flag for giving it their best shot today. Sure, they didn't come out on top but it was the sheer gut-busting fortitude they displayed that tugged on the heart strings. Hey, knocking back a combined 143 hot dog buns in six minutes is something to write home about
Unfortunately, the elephants managed to inhale 505 buns to win by a trunk ... and then some.
