Swine Flu Sweeps Across Egypt; ‘Crazy Legs Conti’ Could Care Less

Apparently, there are differing views on the severity of the swine flu outbreak around the world. At one pole you have the entire nation of Egypt…

Egyptian pig farmers have clashed with police in Cairo, as they tried to stop their animals being slaughtered. Hundreds of people at the Manshiyat Nasr slum threw stones and bottles at police who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. The government wants to cull all the nation’s pigs, a move UN experts say is not necessary to prevent swine flu.

And at the opposite pole, the International Federation of Competitive Eating (a.k.a. IFOCE) and one of their cornerstone competitors, ahem altheletes, ‘Crazy Legs Conti’ – apparently “Legs”, the IFOCE and the fine people of Biloxi, Mississippi think “swine” means “chicken”. Oh and by the way, there was a “capacity crowd” on hand for this spectacle…

“Crazy Legs has won the first Nathan’s Famous qualifier with 25 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, earning a seat the table on July 4 and securing a measure of fame in Biloxi, Mississippi.”

"Abide, abibe...Th-th-th-that's all folks!"
