Good Luck.
annual World Pie Eating Championships in England ended in disaster on Friday because pies were too big. competition worker made mistake and ordered pies that were wrong size. In fact, pies used in contest were twice as big as rules say they should be. The pies for the competition in Wigan, England, got delivered to nearby divorce party. competition was stopped when organisers said rules had been broken. The competition pies should be diameter of 12cm and depth of 3.5cm. The meat and potatoes in pies should be no more than cubes of 1cm. Barry Rigby, 37, part-time fitness instructor, had set the fastest time of 42.6 seconds.

annual World Pie Eating Championship is usually held at Harry's Bar in Wigan, England. It has been held since 1992. It started with competitors trying to eat meat and potato pies as fast as they could. However, in 2006, vegetable pie was added after pressure from England's Vegetarian Society. speed-eating competition has had few problems in past. In 2005, there were protests because pies were not from Wigan. year later, competition had to change to meet government healthy-eating guidelines. Contestants then had to eat one pie as quickly as they could instead of as many pies as they could. And in 2007, disaster happened when competition ran out of pies.
