“If fate and destiny existed, they would surely concern themselves with the affairs of this man. But they do not exist! The future is the property of the iron-willed, and there is only one man who has an iron will and it is he, Joey Chestnut!”

Here’s a great article about the competitive eating circuit by Mercantile favorite Jon Ronson.

A new anthology of Ronson’s screwy but wonderful journalism will be hitting the Mercantile’s shelves shortly.  Watch for it, and feel free to grab a couple of his older titles from the stacks while you wait.  We recommend Them, for starters.

Scripsi saw the man himself speak at Joseph Beth recently, and gave a glowing review.
