Americans love bacon, but perhaps no American loves bacon more than this guy.

Matt Stonie etched his name in the record books for all of history to look back on in wonder and concern for his health when he ate 182 strips of bacon in five minutes last weekend at the Daytona 500.

Stonie's cholesterol level is probably going to be higher than the number of miles run at Daytona. While he should be proud of his accomplishment, he should also probably avoid eating anything bacon-related (like this) for a good decade or so.

We'd love it if Stonie got a cardiogram because we'd be willing to bet doctors would see a picture of Porky Pig on it. Or Babe. Or both. Probably both.
