I like to ask the tough questions that nobody else has the gut(s) to ask. Not all heroes wear capes: some wear radio station swag.

Today's burning question: can I actually eat enough to make my stomach explode?

The answer is, "Yes, but...". You see, the "but" is how we get to 250 words!

"Yes, but..." it's extremely unlikely and usually not caused by overeating. The more likely cause would be swallowing something corrosive, or something sharp.

The technical term is "gastrointestinal perforation" and it's now also the name of my next Gassy Punkcore band.

Despite the average 'Merican consuming over 3,000 calories this Thanksgiving, that's still not nearly enough to make your stomach explode.

"But what if I eat 3,000 calories-worth of celery?"

First: ew. Second: our bodies (usually) have built-in defenses to avoid Oppenheimer-ing our guts...like barfing.

The walls of our stomachs - unless you have a medical condition - are thick enough to protect us from overeating-induced explosions. You can eat and eat, but you'll hork it back up long before your stomach explodes.

So eat away and try not to barf!

That's 250, baby!
