No wonder Houston is America's "Fattest" city

Seriously, take a look at some of these ridiculous "eating challenges" offered around town. For example:
The challenge: You must finish two ½-pound beef patties, Ripps chili and fried onion rings sandwiched between two grilled-cheese sandwiches with a massive side of fries in less than 30 minutes. No napkins.
The cost:
$15.95
The reward:
Your name on the restaurant’s wall
Why anybody would want to put their stomachs, and by extension their entire bodies, through this kind of calorie-induced stress just so they can get their name written on a restaurant's wall is beyond me. Maybe some people are proud of the fact they are unhealthy gluttons and want the entire world to know. Maybe others are just up to any sort of a challenge, be it an eating contest or otherwise.

To each their own, I guess, but, as somebody who could afford to get healthier and lose a few pounds, none of these "challenges" interest me. In fact, a few of them really gross me out.

Other rewards for other challenges include t-shirts, discounts on future restaurant visits, or free dessert. Bon app├ętit!
