CHESTNUT WINS FIRST SLUGBURGER TITLE!
Major League Eating is proud to announce the return of The World Slugburger Eating Championship Presented by Main Street Corinth to its 2015 slate of competitions. The fourth annual Slugburger Championship promises to be the best yet, as Major League Eaters again descend upon Corinth, MS, to battle themselves, each other and the delicious slugburger.
Slug what, you say? The slugburger. This unique burger is in fact a based on a deep-fried beef-and-soy meal patty that is dressed, traditionally, with onions, pickles and mustard. Slugburgers once sold for a nickel—then called a slug—and a name was born. A name that turns heads. And a meal that sates stomachs.
One slugburger is enough for mortals. Maybe two. Never three. For Major League Eaters, three barely touches the sides. At the 2014 World Slugburger Eating Championship, Matthew "The Megatoad" Stonie edged Joey Chestnut 43 slugburgers to 42 slugburgers in 10 minutes. Stonie's total was good enough to set a new World Record. It was a happy day in Stonietown, for the day son which he defeats The Great One are the greatest days of all.
Do you dare challenge yourself against the greatest eaters in the world? Do you wish to watch the greatest sporting spectacle scheduled anywhere on the planet on July 11, 2015? Then get thyself to beautiful Corinth, MS, for the World Slugburger Eating Championship Presented by Main Street Corinth! In the crowd or at the table—don't you ever miss it!
