This Guy Ate SEVEN POUNDS Of Ketchup In 3 Minutes And Every Second Looked Painful

There’s actually an audience for watching people ingest massive amounts of ketchup on the Internet, and after watching this latest Freak Eating video, we can see why. It straddles the line of fascinating and nerve-wracking and you just can’t take your eyes off of it.

Our buddy Nadir, also known as competitive eater Freak Eating, is the type to evoke such fascination in us, especially in his latest eating endeavor when he set out to consume nearly seven pounds of pure ketchup. Freak Eating claims that this might actually be the most ketchup consumed in one sitting documented on the Internet.

The popular condiment typically consists of high fructose corn syrup, tomato paste, and vinegar. Usually, a few ounces is more than enough to get you through a large meal. Seven pounds, however, might as well be torture.

Watch the painful process as he shovels spoonful after spoonful of ketchup straight into his mouth without the aid of French Fries. And if he looks familiar, you may also remember Freak Eating as the dude who broke the world record for eating the In-N-Out 50×50.

Punishment Forces Hot Guy To Get Hotter Crepe Thrown In His Face

Sure, we occasionally have some office punishments here at Foodbeast. That, however, entails eating something incredibly spicy or something incredibly disgusting. In Japan, they’re on a whole other level.

The staff over at SoraNews played a punishment game to see who among their writers would pick the least popular brand of noodles from a recent popularity poll. One or their columnists, Ahiru Neko, was considered to be the most handsome among them.

Unfortunately, his boyish good looks came in last.

His punishment? Getting a hot crepe thrown onto his face. On camera.

Check out the video as the most good-looking dude on SoraNews’ Japanese editorial staff gets a faceful of scalding yet delicious French pancakes. Don’t envy this guy at all.

Actually, maybe just a little still. He’s got looks on his side.

A Preschool Teacher Used Hot Sauce To Waterboard A Special Needs Toddler As Punishment

Hot-Sauce-Stk-002

A four-year-old with special needs was essentially waterboarded with hot sauce as a punishment by his preschool teacher according to his outraged mom.

The incident occurred at Friendship Pediatric Services in Arkansas, a special needs daycare where the preschooler was receiving speech therapy.  The four-year-old, had reportedly hit a friend and apparently the teacher decided forcing hot sauce down his throat was a reasonable punishment.

The child’s mom discovered what happened after she had to pick him up for vomiting uncontrollably. She figured it was just a stomach virus of some sort until the kid told her he was given hot sauce, a word she didn’t think he even knew. According to KATV, the mom worries this could have been ongoing or happening to other kids.

“It must have been forced because he wasn’t just like, ‘Here give me some hot sauce.’ He said he was crying and had to get water and it was nasty. I don’t know if this was the first time or he was the only child.”

The incident prompted her to confront the teacher and get the police involved. It’s still under investigation, but according to a police report, the teacher even admitted the preschool’s director that she administered the extreme punishment saying it’s common in her culture for kids to be punished that way.

According to Arkansas Department of Human Services, who are investigating the incident the only punishment that should be given is timeouts. So, you know, not the one the CIA used as a torture method.

Many US Prisons Are Still Giving Inmates ‘The Loaf’ as Punishment

nutraloaf-prison-food

The Loaf, also known also as “nutraloaf,” is fed as a punishment to inmates who get violent or have misbehaved. Unsurprisingly, civil-rights activists are urging prisons to stop serving it.

Even though “the loaf” must meet nutritional guidelines, prisons can come up with their own versions, grinding leftovers, vegetables, beans, and starches into a dense mass that (for reasons we might never understand) is served in a paper sack without seasoning.

While law enforcement says the loaf isn’t too bad, prisoners are often forced to eat it at every meal for days or even weeks after misbehaving. Once is bad enough for something that Aaron Fraser describes as a “bunch of guck, like whatever they have available.” Fraser, who spoke with NPR and was fed the loaf while serving time from 2004 to 2007, dreaded the cardboard-like meal. “I would have to be on the point of dizziness when I know I have no choice [to eat it].”

Turns out its not only the loaf that’s the punishment, but the monotony of eating it every day. Like Fraser, some inmates refuse to eat at all rather than eat the loaf. Which brings us back to human rights activists, who say the loaf’s nearly inedible state is unethical.
