  • Could you eat a 72 oz steak?

    Saw this on the Travel Channel the other night. You would have 1 hr to do it. Could you? If it was just the steak I think I could do it. I don't think I could do all the other stuff though.

    almost 50,000 people from around the world have traveled to Amarillo and attempted to eat the specially cut 72-oz. top sirloin steak, a baked potato, salad, dinner roll and shrimp cocktail.
    About 8500 have done it.

    No, but I'd pay to see someone do it at an outdoor booth across the street from PETA headquarters.

      I could.

      In Amarillo? No. The smell there is atrocious.

          I love steak, but not THAT much steak.

            This thing looks like it is at least one inch thick and probably 10 x 6.

              From Wikipedia:

              "The stomach can expand to hold between 2-4 liters of food."

              Now all we need to do is figure out the volume of a 72-ounce steak.

                I don't think that I would want to. But you know those crazy Texans

                        You? I would assume you would be shoving down the LoneStar beer as quickly as the waitress could sling it.

                            If I could substitute a second baked potato for the shrimp cocktail, I would have no problem eating all that in an hour.

                              That would feed me for 6 days.
