There's an article in the paper today about a study a researcher has done on how incredibly fast some animal called the star-nosed mole can eat. Apparently the human world record holder for hard-boiled eggs consumed them at a rate of about one every six seconds. The mole eats comparably at one mouthful every 0.23 seconds. Anyway, at the end of the article, there's this quote:

He is not the only person who is impressed by the star-nosed mole, however.

"I would love to see one of these moles in action," said George Shea, chairman of the International Federation of Competitive Eating. "It makes one wonder if there's an opportunity for a cross-species contest. I think there'd be interest in both the human and mole populations."

Get your tickets now. They won't last long.

The Shea brothers are marketing geniuses. They have the perfect blend of dry humor and serious interest in their IFoCE that's really funny to watch.

Oh and to Venomize this post. That mole is a fucking slob.
