It is an unwritten law that Canadians must love poutine, so it's only fitting that the World Poutine Eating Championship was held in Toronto.

For the unaware, poutine is a burger-accompanying side dish or standalone meal comprised of French fries topped with cheese curd and gravy. Shoveling tons of it into your mouth for a shot at $750 and a trophy should be easy, right? The winner of the World Poutine Eating Championship, who ate nearly 10 pounds of the stuff, is also the world record holder for pizza-eating.
