World Champ Turkey Eater

The Deep Fried Thanksgiving

GLUTTONFEST!!!

11/24/2011 5:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Patrick Deep Dish Bertoletti

He set a world record when he consumed 6.91 pounds of turkey meat in 8 minutes -- but this Thanksgiving, competitive eating machine Patrick "Deep Dish" Bertoletti is getting TOTALLY FRIED!

Deep Dish tells TMZ ... he's going balls out for a Turkey Day ... as in DEEP FRIED STUFFING BALLS WITH A GRAVY CENTER!!!! And that's just the beginning!!!!

Deep Dish says he's personally preparing the stuffing balls for a feast at his parents' house near Chicago -- on top of two other gut-busting dishes ... a deep-fried brussels sprouts salad with a butter-balsamic-pecan vinaigrette, and braised ox tails.

DD tells us, he was planning to deep fry the ox tails too -- but he just couldn't find the right recipe to make his dream a reality.

To wash it all down, Bertoletti says he's preparing a special cranberry juice cocktail ... "just like the Pilgrims made."

Hell. Yes.

He won't be dying by choking on a bone, he will die of a massive heart attack.

Now, really think about it. Why would anyone do this. Or watch. We are an odd society.

And we wonder why people in other countries without enough food, hate us.


(Also, why are 90% of the comments on this article, spam?? Annoying.... TMZ should filter better.)

In this day and age with so many starving people around
I think this kind of waste is uncalled for its also sending a wrong message to youngsters that overeating is ok and good for you when the exact opposite is true
