A Modest Proposal

A reader/FEC enthusiast asks: “Today’s Living Social deal for five Big Macs and five large fries BEGS for a New Normal eating challenge. Someone has to have a hungry analyst, right?”

In our professional opinion, this would constitute a worthy challenge if there are two people going head to head, winner is the first to finish in however long it takes or you do it man vs. food, and food must be completed and kept down in 30 minutes. If you’re up to it, do let us know.

    You have your own "hungry analyst," Bess.

    There's a certain gas trader at JPM who would gladly take this on. No tsure this can top his 6 sticks of butter he put down a while back.

    Trying to get this going, but the mark will only do it if the Notoriously Cheap Guy on the desk buys the food at full price. So now we gotta go after him.
