"I just tried to eat fast."

Now I've led a sheltered life and I still don't get this whole Thanksgiving thing...But isn't this just taking the festive season too far?

A day before millions of Americans sit down to eat traditional Thanksgiving dinners, a Virginia woman grabbed the world turkey-eating title on Wednesday by gobbling down a whole roast bird in 12 minutes. Sonya Thomas, 37, who weighs just 47.5 kilograms, beat seven men in the annual Thanksgiving Invitational: a race to eat a 10-pound (4.5-kilogram) turkey.

Wow. Now undoubtedly this falls into the category of 'impressive'. But like gymanastics, you still got to ask yourself...WHY?! It gets worse...

The smallest in the field, Ms Thomas put her victory down to "swallowing fast."

Get your mind out of the gutter!
