--Man dies after dumpling-eating contest
Kiev - A Ukrainian man died on Tuesday shortly after winning a dumpling-eating contest, the Interfax news agency reported.
The victim was described in the report as a retiree aged 77 living in the village of Tokmak, in Ukraine's eastern Zaporizhia region.
He became ill within minutes of taking first prize in a contest on consuming varenniki, a steamed dumpling considered one of Ukraine's most traditional foods.
Contest organisers were unable to revive him after he lost consciousness. It was unclear how many dumplings the man ate.
An autopsy was planned to determine the cause of his death.
Ukrainian varenniki typically are stuffed with cabbage, potatoes, mushrooms or cherries.
Most Ukrainian families eat varenniki only during holidays as much time is needed to prepare the dumplings, and because they are considered very filling.

I also said if his sons love Joe, how come they fired him when he was their manager? She didn't have nothing to say about that too LOL. I said Joe is gonna join Marvin Gaye's dad soon at the cemetery because it's only a matter of time LOL.
