You may think that you're a greedy b**tard - but can you eat a whole pizza in under a minute? And no, we don't mean a McCain mini pizza. We mean a 12-inch one from Domino's.

Turns out that Takeru Kobayashi, world famous competitive eater and six-time champion of Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest - yes, THAT Takeru Kobayashi - can.

Kobayashi performed this particular feat at a Super Bowl party - and you thought that orgy of excess was limited to overpaid sportsmen and a glitzy half-time show! - and according to the New York Daily News, he was paid $1,500 to stuff his face. Which ruins it slightly for us, we must say. We thought he was just doing it for fun. Oh, well...
