Eating 100 of anything seems like an impossible task, especially when you do it while engaged in some sort of physical activity. That's why professional athletes are what they are: members of a superhuman species who do not abide by the laws and rules that govern mere mortals.
Case in point: former Houston Rockets star and NBA Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon, who, during a five-hour-long commercial shoot for McDonald's early in his career, ate 100 Chicken McNuggets. Olajuwon was instructed to continuously dunk McNuggets into his mouth as if they were a basketball, so Olajuwon obliged...for 100 takes.

Olajuwon ate them like a champ, but it's disconcerting that a staffer was so concerned about his Nugget intake that he thought he might overdose. Turns out Olajuwon was engaging in a real life enactment of "Supersize Me" before it became a documentary film. Very progressive, Hakeem.
