A Peck of Jalapenos

Peck of Jalapenos
e’s not quite Peter Piper, but retired CPA Richard LeFevre picked up a $2,000 prize purse by popping 247 pickled jalapeno peppers at the Jalapeno Eating World Championship at the Texas state fair.

LeFevre, who hails from Henderson, Nev., has been competing in contests sponsored by the National Federation of Competitive Eating since 2002. This latest event—which he completed in eight minutes—set a new record.

He’s proud as a peacock, though still plainly puckered.
