Details:Greg crunched down eleven (11) 1.75 ounce bags of peanuts. Each bag contained twenty-five (25) grams of fat. This snack totaled 275 grams of fat; that is 9.7 ounces of fat! In this, his first non-failed challenge, Greg employed several techniques to achieve the lofty goal of downing 0.6 pounds of fat. Some of the several techniques were the genuflect gobble, the light-in-the-loafers-leap-about, and the workstation box sprawl. As always, Greg was able to work in his now famous catch phrase, "It hurts". On two separate occasions, Greg dispersed the crowd like Dawn dish soap does grease when he nearly vomited, with a few of them in the would-be projectile's path. Except during the two scares, spectators kept flowing a steady stream of euphemisms about eating nuts. Mentions of "nut bags" and of "deez nuts" were aplenty, and kept spectators in stitches.

Fastest 1/2 gallon milk consumption (Failure)
When:Friday, 15 Apr 2005
|See it! (2 pix)|
Did not achieve goal! Greg was going for the coveted Most Milk title. He intended to drink down over 0.5 gallons of fresh, wholesome milk in approximately eleven (11) minutes. In order to get an edge in the competition, Greg slowly brought the milk closer to room temperature over a period of two (2) hours. Last minute protests by the current Most Milk title holder about skim versus 2% milk prompted Greg to add four (4) single serving size Half and Half creamer containers to the skim milk. After an impressive start and slurping down about 75% of the jug of milk in about two (2) minutes, Greg paused to showboat a bit. To please the crowd, Greg was able to work in his catch-phrase, "it hurts". Then, shortly after getting back to the challenge, the milk that Greg had already consumed was not enjoying the one-half (1/2) pot of coffee that Greg had for breakfast: it wanted out. It came up once, but Greg gulped it back down. The next two (2) abdominal contractions could not be overcome in the same manner, and Greg chunked out the milk into a nearby trash can. Milk did not do a body good in this case. Note: one of the pictures is semi-graphic.

Details:Greg crunched and munched his way through 10.75 ounces (cooked weight) of delicious popcorn from a Christmas sampler tin. The tin had three (3) tempting flavors: cheese, rich caramel, and artificial-imitation butter. He demonstrated an assortment of eating techniques, ranging from the stand and stash to the kneel and gnash to the very effective steam-shovel stuff. A real trooper, Greg was careful to collect any and every dropped nugget of popped corn, placing it back in the tin of joy to be enjoyed later in the event. And, of course, Greg uttered his catch-phrase, "it hurts", a few times during his challenge. Always a crowd pleaser.
Did not achieve goal! Greg was attempting to eat approximately 1.8 pounds of popcorn. Maybe next time, Orville.

Details:Greg snacked on 16.02 ounces of delicious, zesty Vlassic Jalapeño slices. He was able to do so in 57 minutes and 23 seconds. Quite a feat, considering that the sweat began flowing and the eyes began watering at about the 3 minute mark. Perseverance. Greg's fork was eventually shaking at nearly supersonic speeds. To make a meal of it, Greg added part of a glazed yeast doughnut, a pint of milk, and about a quarter of a napkin to the feast. Quotes of interest: "I'm having some issues right now", "Tongue burning, eyes sweating, bowels churning, must finish jar of jalapeños", and "This is some whack shit, yo".
Did not achieve goal! Greg was trying to consume the contents of two (2) 16 fluid ounce jars of jalapeños. He fell a touch short, only eating one jar and two (2) pepper slices from the second jar. However, as a "can't keep me down" bonus, Greg slurped down twelve (12) ounces of K.C. Masterpiece Honey Brown Sugar barbeque sauce in 4 minutes, 28 seconds after stopping the challenge at hand.
