Easter everywhere

While the rest of us at the R&H spent Easter guzzling whiskey, Naader 'Freak8r' Reda got down to some serious egg scoffing. Oh, and a lot of peeling to boot.

How crazy is it to eat 50 Cadbury Eggs?

I think the bigger question is, how crazy is it to unpeel those 50+ and claim them for a world record?

Does opening the claiming of world records to a fully democratic process, such as RecordSetter, open up questions about just what it means to be the best at something?

Is there such a thing as too much democracy?

Is there really a world champion at opening eggs, let alone eating them?

And why do we need such things?

Who knows? But it's certainly something to ponder while watching Freak8r peeling those eggs. All 57 of 'em...

And now for the eating (with a few extra condiments thrown in for good measure)...

But Freak8r certainly wasn't the only competitive eater celebrating Easter with some serious craw cramming.

Here's Joe Park taking on a right mixed bag, for example...

And while we're on the subject, how about eating a 19-year-old Easter egg?

Hey, it's all in a day's work for the Dude, Where's My Challenge? crew...

So, a bit past it's sell-by date.

Any nasty side-effects?

"Not really, it just tasted horrible," one or possibly all three exclusively tweet the
Rake & Herald.

"I wouldn't recommend people eating chocolate that old," he/they continue.

Hmm, sage advice, we reckon.

In fact, we'll probably just stick to necking 12-year-old Redbreast.

Which is exactly how we spent our Easter weekend.

Man, that Easter bunny knows his booze!

While the first vid come from Freak8r's secondary
YouTube channel, the second come's from his primary one. As for the third vid, that come's from Joe Park's YouTube channel, with the fourth embedded from that belonging to Dude, Where's My Challenge?. Meanwhile, to see Jamie 'the Bear' McDonald plough through 50 Cadbury's Cream Eggs in 14 minutes 5 seconds, have a click of this.

Naader 'Freak8r' Reda
is a California-based competitive eater with a pedigree as long as a docker's tea break. In 2011, in addition to competing in numerous contests and championships, he set himself the gargantuan goal of taking on 100 eating challenges across North America. He won 97. In recognition of this, All Pro Eating crowned him the World's Top Food Challenger. The man can eat. But more than that, he can also write. As such, the Rake & Herald is truly honoured to also crown him the World's Top Competitive Eating Editor. The dude's a dude, dude. And if you're still not convinced, get a load of this. In addition to being a phenomenal gurgitator, Freak8r also teaches history to high school students. We reckon his lessons must be ace. Heck, if he were our teacher, we'd even do our homework. Some of the time, anyway.

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.
