Details:AJ ordered up a dozen delectable hush puppies and a kid-size drink. Served on a fresh bed of "krums" (a.k.a. Crumblies?), the little health-pellets arrived and AJ got to work. *Chomp* -- two gone, and within five (5) minutes, AJ had downed the entire dirty dozen. "Two more baskets, please" -- eighteen (18) hush puppies this order. Being a chef, AJ was sure to spruce up the meal, using an array of condiments from ketchup and cocktail sauce to tartar sauce and malt vinegar. Mmm, mmm, good!
The noxious malt vinegar fumes, on several occasions, came close to overpowering attendees. AJ himself nearly hucked up a litter of hush puppies thanks to the power of said fumes. Twenty-eight (28) in: "This is <__>ing disgusting" -- the remaining two (2) hush puppies held a glimmer of hope for a stay of execution. AJ quickly crushed that hope by squeezing the life out of the last couple of hapless pups, wringing some puddles of grease out of them in the process. It was the end of the line for the pair of them. AJ, sure to appease the commission, ate the grease puddles, too. Totals: thirty (30) hush puppies, three (3) kid-sized drinks, and about one-half cup of various condiments in thirty-two (32) minutes.
But, wait, there is more! For the finale, AJ dumped the remaining contents of the malt vinegar dispenser into another kid-size drink cup (estimated vinegar volume of eight (8) ounces) and took it outside. It was time to enjoy a fine malt beverage in the afternoon sun of a brisk December day: AJ guzzled down the strong brew, including the unidentified pebbles that had settled on the bottom. One-and-one-half (1.5) pounds of hush puppies and a half pint of aged Long John Silver's malt vinegar -- what a treat!

Details:Kyle munched down twenty-four (24) of the deep-fried bread nuggets called "hush puppies" from the Long John Silver's seafood eatery. In a strong start, Kyle had about one-half of the challenge completed in an astounding five (5) minutes. Soon, though, he hit the ever-present food challenge wall. Looking down at the remaining unimposing puppies, Kyle sat befuddled, one hand resting over the side of his face. He pondered how the small little side-dish treats could be threatening to turn this, his maiden challenge, into a failed attempt. With about six (6) hush puppies to go he exclaimed that he "did not know that a hush puppy could be so heavy"; a perplexed look washed over his face and his eyebrows wove into a frown. Then, the proverbial second wind came to Kyle and he attacked the defenseless pups with renewed vigor, drowning a few of them in ice water before sending them to their demise. Success! After thirty-three minutes, Kyle victoriously threw back the last bite of the two dozen hush puppies in fine fashion. That's twenty-four (24) free hush puppies the easy way. Only mild concern about regurgitating the quiet treats arose, though people entertained thoughts of power-chucking the meal at random targets on the ride back from the restaurant.
