S.D. Man Downs 5.5 Ounces of Hot Sauce

TEA, S.D. (AP) “” A South Dakotan may be new world-record holder when it comes to swallowing Tabasco sauce. Levi Johnson of Tea drank 5.5 ounces of the hot sauce, or nearly 3 bottles, in 30 seconds at a sports bar in that community.

The Guinness Book of World Records lists the previous record at 5.07 ounces. Johnson’s feat must be verified by Guinness publishers before it is considered official.

Wow – who knew that was a record to break? I’m guessing he drank the sauce out of a glass and not the little bottles. I bet a number of readers could beat this one in no time…
