Kobayashi Goes Kosher

Typically known for chowing down on everything from hot dogs and hamburgers to wings and Twinkies, competitive food eating champ Takeru Kobayashi set his sights on the holy grail of pastries and took a bite out of a massive Hamantashen -- a dessert usually consumed during the Jewish holiday of Purim.

Kobayashi kept it kosher while speaking at Yeshiva University in NYC on Thursday.

I think this kobayashi guy cheats somehow maybe he has a rare medical condition with a hole in his stomoch and he tubes and a bag hooked up down there to let the food drop into to. No way he can beat some crazy fat 500 lb dudes!

Kobayashi: Yellow Power....Ranger! I can say that cuz I'm asian; here in asia, the word "yellow" is not a derogatory term like in the US.
