bubblegum Eating Champion
Barney "The helicopter" aardvark shocked the world this past Sunday when Barney broke the world record for most sparkly bubblegums eaten while butterfly catching. "People said I could never do it", said Barney, "but no one has really seen how hard I train behind closed doors other than my pet ducks".
Downing over 3 pounds of fresh sparkly bubblegums in 20 minutes, spectators were left speechless by the sight. "Never in my lifetime have I seen something like that," stated Thomas Edison, "Someone even snuck in a kazoo into the food pile, and Barney still ate that!".
After Barney's historic meal, town mayor Bart appeared on stage to offer the key to the city to the World sparkly bubblegum-eating champion. However, at yet another shock to the audience, Barney accidentally mistook the key for chocolate, immediately consuming it before the cries of the crowd could be heard. Barney's bowel movements are now under strict monitoring for evidence of the city's 24 Karat Gold key.
