Can you finish enough of these to be crowned slider eating champion? (Matt McClain/For The Washington Post)

The contestant who consumes the most sliders in the allotted time walks away with $500 and a slot in a national slider-eating competition. No word on whether they’ll throw in a bottle of Maalox for good measure, as they do with their legendary 9 Pounder.

I’d put the over/under on personal slider consumption within the 10-minute window at four, but I’m not the least bit tempted to find out whether that’s high or low. If you’re curious, you should e-mail with your name, age, address and why you think you’ve got what it takes to be a slider-eating champion.
