Eating contests are gross enough, but the competitors are horking down too much of something that’s at least meant to be edible. Then you’ve got the stinging nettle, a plant that’s grown tiny spines to avoid being eaten. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the World Stinging Nettle Eating Championship!
Taking place yesterday in England (of course), this competition has been growing in size every year since it began as a bar bet (of course). And if the tiny daggers stabbing the inside of your throat wasn’t bad enough, try dealing with bright green feces for days. Because I hate you, I bring you video, after the jump.
