      Impossible to accomplish. You know how freaking sick you would become? The shear volume that you would need to consume is astounding.

      The good thing about tacos is that they leave as quickly as you can eat them.

      Even if they are only 100 calories each x100= 10,000 cals and that is a conservative estimate.

      In one day, that would be really tough on your system. Your liver would struggle to keep up production of bile to process the fat since these would mostly be fat calories. But that's OK, those lipids which can't be processed would quickly pass through the digestive system and that might not be so fun.

      I know, you didn't ask...but...just a forethought

      Nice concept -- in the cartoon world.

      But unless you're a competitive eater -- a la Kobayashi -- 100 tacos ain't gonna move smoothly through your system. The meat and corn tortillas are going to suck your body dry of fluids and the salsa will burn a hole in your stomach. You're more likely to get painfully constipated than take a free ride on the thunder bucket...

      I project you'll be giving about $75 in refunds.

      Basically 4 tacos an hour... hmmm. Won't be easy beyond the 4th hour... your body will also send signals to your brain that you are not hungry and you'll still keep on eating. Recipe for disaster.

      If you eat a taco and throw it up, does that still count as an "eaten taco"?

      to overcome not being hungry i would look to your local street pharmacist

      Yup, he's accepting 1 dollar donations. So it's kinda like those road sponsor signs... "This taco is sponsored by salsanacho"

      That's known in competitive eating as a "reversal of fortune" and gets subtracted from the total.

      Can anyone make this GIF run backwards?


      On a side note, some 30 years ago I witnessed a hard shell taco eating contest locally. The contestants DRANK SALSA out of large cups to wash it down. I think the winner got through about 25 in the alloted time.

      Here's the record from the IFOCE (which still stands from 2004):

      Sonya Retains Taco Title
      9/29/2004

      Sonya Thomas consumed 48 soft tacos in 11 minutes to win the Zocalo Taco-Eating championship at the Inside Out Festival at Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. Thomas, who won $1,000 for her effort, established a lead early and did not falter.

      Placing second was Hungry Charles Hardy, who ate 38 tacos in 11 minutes to win $500, and Bladlands Booker came in third with 37 to earn $250. Tim Janus placed fourth with 33 tacos.

      Also competing were No Limit Holden, Ed Taboada, Jr., BB Seiken, Crazy Legs Conti, Adam Leffler and Daniel Maurer.

      Zocalo Restaurant is located on the Lower Level Dining Concourse of Grand Central Terminal and on 82nd Street between 3rd and Lexington avenues.

      If the little 100lb asian lady can do 48 in 11 minutes, 100 should be easy!!

      Just kidding.... don't kill youself.... but still try it since I'm curious to see how it goes.

      Southside- updated with your name on the blog

      guys, this is a pretty retarded thing for me to do, hahah. I'm sure VW Tank would have no problem doing this, right??!?

      but i am committed to entertaining folks out there and the ensuing hilarity on my part. I'm also going to try and work off all that weight I've gained. I've lost 20lbs in a few months before and I can do it again

      this is beyond all common sense and obviously horribly bad for you. itll be painful, you will curse the simpsons name for coming up with the joke in the first place, and itll probably end in you lying in a pool of your own excrement in the fetal position next to your toilet.
