Doping Allegations at the World Pie-Eating Championship

Written by

The winner of Britain’s pie-eating contest says: “I’m not giving too much away, but the basic rule is bite, swallow, bite, swallow and breathe through your nose.”  The competition involves eating one 4.7 inch pie in the fastest time.  Would you believe that the competition is embroiled in a doping controversy?  People accuse some competitors of adding some kind of cough linctus to ease the pie going down.
