September 8, 2008, at 7 PM, a group of us gathered in Thanh's apartment. I'm not sure exactly how it started, but I think Dan and Trexler had been debating how many corn dogs they each could eat. This led to the infamous guarantee by Trexler that if he couldn't eat twelve he would come to work the next day wearing a skirt. He made it to twelve, but finished second to Jared with thirteen corn dogs to win the first eating challenge. This remains one of the most painful challenges, and we ate far less food that night than in most or all of the comparable challenges since. Not sure what it is about corn dogs that makes them so delicious at two and so revolting at six.
