Phil Versus The Burrito

Title fight re-cap from Junior Burrito Analyst Phil in Miami:

In one corner, measuring in at 16 inches, filled with steak, lettuce, tomato, and cheese, the Taco Rico "Ultimate Big Burrito" first mentioned here.

In the other corner, the bottomless pit, the burrito graveyard, Phil Jonas' stomach.

Yes, the burrito was big (it barely fit on the elongated oval plate). Yes, my girlfriend and I had seen one man try to conquer it and fail (like Jonah and the Baja). But Phil's stomach is more than a man. Well, I guess it's technically less than a man, but you understand what I mean. I'm not sure why, but for some time I had been intimidated by the "Ultimate Big Burrito," having only seen it once, and left only half eaten by a man of lesser burrito-devouring prowess.

My intimidation proved unjust.

I ate the burrito with ease, though I had to cut it in half, because you can't stand up a 16 inch burrito. My girlfriend watched with disgust as I also ate the chips and salsa. Then, we immediately went out and played tennis for 2 hours, which proved slightly uncomfortable.

I should know better than to doubt my abilities, which have been tested time and again, both with burritos, and the great Pizza Mart wager of 2003.

Winner by way of knockout, Phil's stomach.

This Taco Rico meal was rated: 5.0.
