Entrants over-indulge at UK food-eating competition

World Cornish pasty championships
Cornish students (R) Nina Brooke, 21 and (L) Bonnie Mably, 20, laugh as they pose for a photograph as they try a Cornish pasty that has been baked as part of the World Cornish Pasty Championships at The Eden Project on March 3, 2012 in St Austell, England. Cooks from around the world have flown into Cornwall to celebrate the popular local delicacy, that was given protected status under EU law in 2011 and is said to date back as far the 1300s, at the first World Pasty Championships. Although judges will be looking for the best pasty made to the traditional recipe, some variations being judged today include pasties made with squirrel meat. (Getty Images)
