  1. A few times on here he eats over 8 lbs. of food. A unprepared box of Mac and Cheese is 7.25 oz. Is my math right in thinking that it is a touch over 22 boxes of mac and cheese? I have no problem with one box, but after that…

    JC is a true American treasure and well worthy to be named as a Celebrity Grubber.

    I had never heard of a kolache before, now I want to try one! Also 4.82 lbs of p’zone sounds horrific.

    Dang, Where’s the Pepto? (urp)

    Someone needs to get him up to here to Oshkosh, Wisconsin to win the Polito’s Monster Pizza contest! A tw0-person team must eat the 12-pound Monter Pizza in one hour or less. Apparently nobody has done it yet. This man would be able to do it himself and win the $500 cash prize!

    Call him now! haha

    12 pounds in an hour? 6 pounds each…sheesh. I like pizza but not that much. Yeah, I’m sure Joey could handle it though.
