​In honor of day of the year when gluttony is not only accepted, but celebrated here in America (yeah, that would be all days that end in "y"), we'd only expect Takeru Kobayashi to show us how it's done. 

On Thanksgiving eve, the competitive eating superstar gobbled 7.5 pounds of turkey in 10 minutes, spitting out he previous record of 5.25 pounds, set by Sonya "Black Widow" the day before.

According to Huffington Post, Kobayashi told observers the feat wasn't easy because the turkey was dry and hard to swallow. They probably should have grilled or smoked it
