The Taco gives life…
Specifically, taco hot sauce. This spring a man survived for five days stranded in the snow by eating nothing but Taco Bell hot sauce packets. This is a thing? Apparently, yes.
In Florida, a man was sitting down at a Taco Bell when he decided to get up to get more hot sauce just seconds before an elderly man crashed through the front window with his car, hitting the table where the hot-sauce-guy had been sitting.
…and the Taco takes life away.
Dana Hutchings, 41, of Fresno, died shortly after arriving at after competing in the World Taco Eating Championship in Fresno California at their annual Taco Truck Throwdown.
Matthew Boylan, watched Tuesday’s taco eating contest and noticed Hutchings because
“he was eating so fast compared to the other two [contestants]
It was like he’d never eaten before. He was just shoving the tacos down his mouth without chewing.”
He said Hutchings collapsed and hit his face on a table about seven minutes into the contest, then fell to the ground. The eating contest ended immediately.
It’s not known how many tacos the man ate or whether he had won the contest. During the 2018 Taco Eating Championship in Fresno, the professional eater Geoffrey Esper gulped downed 73 tacos in eight minutes.
And he lived to tell the tale.
Can you imagine the obituary for that poor man?
