Another reason to go to EclipseCon…

I’ve always thrown jabs at the Eclipse Foundation on why they choose Santa Clara, CA USA as the location for EclipseCon year after year. Sure there are valid reasons, but I think I have finally figured it out… three words… Belly Buster Challenge.

There’s a local pizza joint in Santa Clara that apparently has one of those eating contests (only us Americans can be so entrepreneurial about eating) where if you finish what they give you, you get it for free, plus one free XL pizza per month for the next 12 months. Sounds like a good deal eh?

Here’s what you have to do:

1) Eat gigantic 20 inch pizza

2) Don’t look like this guy when you can’t finish

Any takers?

I personally nominate Wayne Beaton. I think that shirtless ruffian of an Eclipse evangelist can take the pizza down:

  • AlBlue

    I reckon I could be in for a chance. Sadly, I’m not going this year.

    I’ve seen Wayne eat pizza. It’s not pretty. It’s scary, even… especially when plates, utensils, cups and small children get in the way.
