How much do you like cheesecake?

I could really eat some cheesecake after a long run, but I don't think I could eat this much:

On February 21, 2004, Sonya Thomas ate 11 pounds of cheesecake in 9 minutes, a world record. She only weighs about 100 pounds, so that is 11% of her body weight! For reference a 10" cheesecake weighs about 4 pounds.

Here is an up-to-date list of all of her other amazing world records, including a recent victory of 46 mince pies in 10 minutes.

I don't think it would be a good idea to invite Ms. Sonya Thomas to Thanksgiving dinner.

I don't know anybody who doesn't like cheesecake. It's great! I have even made it from time to time. I must say that I draw the line at eating 10% of my bodyweight in cheesecake. Actually, eating 10% of my bodyweight of ANYTHING would be a hardship.

Does D like cheesecake since he doesn't like cheese?

I do like cheesecake! I don't like cream cheese on its own though. Boo!

Oh good! I'm glad to hear that you like cheesecake---I'm not sure why it matters to me so much---but it did at the time!
