Ohio Man Plans To Eat 1,000 Cheese Coneys
A recent Xavier University graduate has big plans for 2019. Eating 1,000 Cheese coneys in one year.
His name: Patrick Kaple.
His goal: To eat 1,000 cheese coneys from Skyline Chili in one year.
His reason: Because he can.
Patrick Kaple tells Clevescene.com what inspired him to challenge himself with this cheesy feat,
I decided to embark on this challenge mainly because I thought that I could do it. My friends and I stumbled across an article written by Cleveland Scene titled: "An Ohio Man ate 400 Skyline Chili Cheese Coneys this year and is still somehow alive." I have some friends who eat three coneys every day for lunch at work and we're like, "Why is that something newsworthy?" I said, "I'm going to go for 1,000 and see what happens." If you love Skyline that much, 400 coneys is like second nature to you. In the article he says, "I'm sure the 1,000th coney would taste the same as the first." So that's the origin of the number we decided.
Side note: when I lived in Cincinnati I ate at Skyline so much that my son honestly thought I worked there. I wish I were kidding. But, it wasn't my goal to over eat. OK, back to the story.
As of Thursday, May 9th Kaple had consumed 382 coneys. That comes out to just under 4 coneys a day. He's currently on pace to eat over 1,400 coneys in 2019.
I would like to make fun of this guy. However, up until this year I was drinking 6-10 cans of Mountain Dew a day. So, I don't have a leg to stand on. Actually, I may have literally lost a leg if I didn't quit.
