University of Waterloo Celebrates Canada Day with Gluttony Contest

Competitive eating's about as nonsensical a "contest" as one could imagine.

And while I personally wish it would just go away, even I can appreciate its appeal as being akin to slowing down driving by the scene of gruesome accident.

What struck me though was this statement from the University of Waterloo's Canada Day celebrations press release,
"The show will also include a challenge for current Waterloo students to see if they can match the pro-eater Timbit for Timbit"
