Any geek can tell you halflings love their meals, so to celebrate Hobbit eating habits and promote The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Denny's created a Hobbit-themed menu. However, competitive eater Jamie "The Bear" McDonald has just taken the eatery's offerings to task, eating the entire, 11-item menu -- from Gandalf's Gobble Melt to Bilbo's Berry Smoothie and everything in between -- in just 20 minutes.
McDonald posted his cave troll-sized feat to YouTube, and thanks to the miracle of high-speed video, viewers can watch him devour the massive menu in around four minutes. The feast, according to the website Calorielab, clocks in at nearly 10 pounds of food and more than 86 hundred calories.
