The guy in this video is Tim Janus and he has the honor of winning the first ever World Burping Championship, an achievement that's sure to inspire frat boys and sixth graders everywhere.
The host kicked off this event by trying to excite the whopping three people in attendance (who were also participants) by proudly claiming, "You can tell your grandchildren that you were here at the first World Burping Championship." Which is true, I will be telling my grandkids about this but only as a way to scare them into staying in school. To suggest that a burping contest is in any way historical is like comparing a sandcastle to the Taj Mahal. It was so nauseating for me to watch Janus burping that I could literally smell the bologna sandwich and beer on his breath hitting me in the face. And I saw this in front of a computer, I can't even begin to imagine how badly it smelled in the bar after the contest was over.
Dry heaving aside, I have to admit that I was a little impressed by how much thought Janus actually put into his burp. Listening to him speak was kind of like listening to an athlete talk about preparing for the Olympics. Then the video cut to him belching.
Needless to say, you probably won't be seeing him on a box of Wheaties anytime soon.
