If you thought you ate too much at yesterday's Thanksgiving feast, ponder this.

Extreme eating champion Takeru Kobayashi ate 7.5 pounds of turkey at an eating competition. Kobayashi tore into the bird much like some natural predator would in the wild.

This is just a light snack for the world record holder. In past competitions Kobayashi has  eaten:

17.7 pounds of cow brains
20 pounds of rice balls
64 Taco Bell tacos
69 Nathan's hot dogs

Did the turkey have any chance?  Watch here:
