Biden's Binge Begins: V.P. Joe Biden wins national pancake eating contest!
Biden's Binge Begins
Vice President Joe Biden amazes spectators and other competitors as he devours an impressive 38 pancakes, winning this year’s pancake charity drive to fight anorexia.
Vice President Biden accidentally accepted the invitation back in January during a press conference when he jokingly stated, "You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.... I'm not joking." Biden was then asked if he would accept an invitation to enter a celebrity pancake eating contest charity event to help fight anorexia, to which he responded in a mocking Indian accent, “indeed my skinny friend, I shall help you and your people.” In an effort to uphold flawed campaign promises, Biden arrived hungry and ready to conquer the mighty pancake mountain.Still going strong at pancake #30
"This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this,” Biden stated after being asked if he was there to win the challenge.
Biden was faced with a group of angry protestors who initially claimed that Biden was only there eat free pancakes. Expected to make a generous donation to The Anti-Anorexia Foundation (AAF) as part of the invitation, Biden angered participants and viewer when he handed over a slim $2.75. Protests of disgust continued as Biden slapped his stomach, smiled and stated, “I’m just glad I could make a difference.”
Biden now holds the AAF Pancake World Record, shattering Calista Flockhart’s previous record of 29.Biden Posing for picture by placing pancake on his head
