I thought of today's strip because of a water drinking radio contest. One contestant, a young mother who wanted to win the prize (a Nintendo Wii) for her children, drank two gallons and subsequently perished from water poisoning. It made me wonder about the other consumption competitions, like those hot dog eating contests that that Japanese dude Kobayashi dominates. That guy's a machine, but if water can poison you, I wonder how many wieners a man can handle before succumbing to an overload of nitrates. As for butter, a cursory internet search assures me that the number of sticks in today's comic is in fact the record. Who in the hell can handle chowing down nearly two pounds of butter in a few minutes? I don't care how dire your gastrointestinal tract is, your poo is going to be very strange after that.

To anyone who happens to be named Ralph Buick, sorry for using your name in relation to up-chucking.

That was for a Wii?
I heard of the incident on the radio and they kept going on about all the legalities, fault, medical aspects, etc. Not once did they mention that she was trying to win a Wii for her kids.
Somehow that made the situation that much more saddening to me :(
