i could totally do this

March 18, 2010

Rick S. spends his days at a large software conglomerate in the valley.

Some days I wish I worked there with him.

[16:13] Dick: Hey

[16:13] dug: Dick

[16:14] dick: So I’m watching a guy at work trying to eat 6 boxes of girl scout cookies in 30 min.  $1,200 on the line

[16:14] dick: it’s an ugly site

[16:14] dug: six BOXES

[16:14] dug: woah

[16:14] dug: is he the same eating champion from the other eating challenges?

[16:14] dick: 3 thin mints and 3 samoa

[16:14] dick: no

[16:14] dug: $1200

[16:14] dick: different guy

[16:14] dick: skinny kid

[16:14] dug: i think i would do that

[16:14] dick: come on down

[16:15] dick: money is on the table

[16:15] dick: it’s yours

[16:15] dug: you wouldn’t do that for $1200?

[16:15] dick: no

[16:15] dick: it’s not possible

[16:15] dick: he is about to puke and he is only 3 boxes in

[16:15] dug: does puking void the deal?

[16:15] dick: yeah

[16:15] dick: gotta keep it all in

[16:15] dug: how long does he have to keep them down?

[16:15] dick: no limit but he has to do it in 30 min

[16:15] dug: do you have money in the game?

[16:16] dick: he can puke after that

[16:16] dick: no

[16:16] dick: a slow day at work

I’m telling you, I could totally do this.

    He just pulled the plug.
    Finger in throat.
    Cookies on the way out.
    3.5 boxes.
    Smells good.

  2. dug Says:

    clearly he didn’t need the money bad enough.

    I had a front row seat for the hamburger eating/milk chugging competition. Easily the highlight of my time at the OMTR.

  4. KanyonKris Says:

    Thanks for the play-by-play. And the outcome, Rick. You got your own kind of March madness over there.

    This eating challenge seems easier than the previous one*, but evidently not.

    * Eat two 10-patty burgers and drink a gallon of milk in less than 1 hour. The milk alone is near impossible, most stomachs can’t handle that much. The video was priceless, in a disgusting way:

    hey, that’s pretty much how my day went…

    boss: hey mike take this Kuota Kult for a test ride
    mike: o.k.
    boss: hey mike, take this Pinarello Dogma with Zipp 303’s for a ride
    mike: o.k.
    boss: hey mike…
    mike: dang it boss, i’m busy changing this tire on this
    30 year old sears beach cruiser, leave me alone

    yep, same day.

    I gave this some thought:

    6 boxes. I think that is out of my realm.

    4 boxes of thin mints? I think I’d have $1200
    dollars.

    Those girl scouts don’t want to raise their prices. So, every year, the price is the same and their are fewer cookies.

    I can drop a box of thin mints (frozen) in less than 2 minutes.

    7.5 minutes per box for 4 boxes? That sounds like lunch.

    Somoa? Sounds like someone has to eat someone else who lives in the pacific islands. No way.

    In another 5 years 6 boxes will be 6 cookies.

    Also, in a non-sequitur, I love thin mint cookes and I love Dairy Queen blizzards. As a result, Dairy Queen Thin Mint Blizzards should be the bomb. They’re not. They suck. I’ve saved you. You can mail a box of cookies to my house in thanks.

    Nice to see that the frolicking continues at Omnidobe.

  8. Nate Says:

    Won’t get the puking at the end – but this one’s a good money maker. 1 KFC biscuit within one minute – no squishing/smashing the biscuit and nothing to drink during the minute.

    • bikemike Says:

      three saltine crackers (no liquid) and whistle within one minute.

      that’s worth 2 dollars of anybody’s money!

  9. stevenbpt Says:

    my money is on Dug!! Thin mints and Samoa’s are my favorites anyway.

  10. bebe Says:

    How sad is it that I actually have multiple boxes of both thin mints and samoas in my pantry right now. But, no desire to try for the cash… At least not right now…

  11. Rick S. Says:

    Dug- Come on down and spend an hour with us. I could get the guys together and raise a healthy sum if you are up for the challenge. $1,200 is a lot of money in bike parts.

  12. Jeff Says:

    I’m not the eater I once was, but six is a lot. And I don’t like Samoas. I think I could do three, if they weren’t all the same. Like, say two thin-mints and one of the peanut-butter kind.

  13. eber Says:

    pretty sure i could have nailed the cookie contest. the burger and milk contest…no way on the great green earth. that much milk is like ipecac.
