Take The 'Fatso Po'Boy Challenge'

Phil's Last Stand in Ukrainian Village just launched a contest that sounds like an impossible task:
"Contestants will have 60 minutes to put away a 6-pound shrimp Po'Boy, a pound of fries and a 32-ounce drink. Each time a guest fails to complete the Po'Boy Challenge, Phil's Last Stand adds $100 to the winner's pot: the last successful eater walked away with $1,000 on top of a $50 gift card, a T-shirt and, most notably, his name engraved on the coveted winner's plaque."
For those not in a "Man vs. Food" phase, Phil's can also whip you up a normal-sized shrimp Po'Boy. It's an off-the-menu item, $8 and stuffed with crispy, fried shrimp . . .
