Jamie 'the Bear' McDonald has once more guzzled his way into the record books with an outstanding display of precision pancake pummelling.

Jamie 'the Bear' McDonald, recognised by All Pro Eating as the world's number one independent competitive eater, has just given a load of pancakes a right good bloody mauling, devouring a whopping 67 of the flour-and-egg-based breakfast food things in 46 minutes at an IHOP restaurant in Liberty, Missouri today (13/4/13).

However, the Bear's latest belly-busting feat of digestional derring-do was no walk in the park, with the Connecticut-based champion craw-crammer exclusively informing the Rake & Herald via electronic twitterification that it was in fact "very hard".

This we can well believe.

"Thirty was easy," the Bear says, "50 OK, but after that it was all willpower."

"Awesome crowd watching and IHOP was very supportive."

"It was one of the few pure starchy challenges I have done."

"It was awesome but I wouldn't want to do it again."

Well, not until after lunch, eh?

Unfortunately, we do not as yet have any video footage of the Bear's premeditated pancake attack to share with you.

However, if you cast your mind back to the start of March (or failing that click this link), you may well recall that the Bear briefly departed his traditional hunting grounds for a sojourn north that eventually led him to the Québécois city of Montréal.

Once there, he casually strolled into a certain restaurant on Ontario East Street by the name of Poutineville and promptly ordered himself a platter of poutine known as the Heart Attack.

Then he scoffed the lot.

All 15 lbs (6.8 kg) of it in just 25 minutes and 23 seconds.

Since then, evidence has come to light suggesting that at least one person present was able to capture the entire alimentary assault with one of those talkie-walkie-movie camera things you sometimes hear about.

And what's more, as investigative hacks, we've got the proof.

So sit back and click play to enjoy some truly adept forkmanship as the Bear becomes the first person ever to single-handedly take on the Heart Attack and win.

The above video was embedded from the Bear's YouTube channel, where, among other acts of fearless food fighting, you can also see him popping 200 Peeps into his gob in less than 10 minutes. Not sure what Peeps are? Well, getting clicking and start learning. Remember, the Rake & Herald is here to educate the world!

WARNING! Competitive eating can be dangerous. As well as choking hazards there is also the possibility of poisoning yourself, something that could lead to hospitalisation, permanent health damage and even death. Don't believe us? Read this. Consequently, the Rake & Herald does not recommend you try emulating the above video(s) yourself. Seriously. We are NOT joking. You have been warned.
