In the fall of 1996 (YOLD 3162) some friends of mine and I challanged each other to a eating contest on Thanksgiving Day. The rules were simple: record everything you eat from midnight to midnight on Thanksgiving Day, and I would decide who ate the most. The winner would recieve the Order of the Fizzy Bicarbonate and the accolade of millions. Thus was born the Thanksgiving Day Challange.
The tradition has continued on into its tenth year, changing little since the original contest. One no longer needs to eat the most (although that certainly helps), but rather eat the best in the Spirit of the Thanksgiving Day Challange. That's a bit hard to define, but when looking at each entry every year, I usually find one that has just a bit something extra.
This year, the winner of the Thanksgiving Day Challange is Greg Platt. You can see the official award here. Greg celebrated Thanksgiving in true spirit, including pork rinds and not one but two microwavable gas station pizzas into his day of Giving Thanks. Thanks to everyone who participated, and start working towards next year.

Dan notes that astute readers will note he is no longer a vegetarian, eating invertibrates and fish a couple times a month, and "I'll also eat poultry on somewhat more rare occasion, but only if i know that it came from a local organic free-range farm. If i want poultry usually i go to the farm and slaughter and butcher the bird myself, though in this particular instance the turkey was purchased pre-butchered from said farm."
