GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A Michigan man wolfed down 27 slices of bacon in two minutes because he wanted a trophy with a pig on top of it.

Thirty-four-old Jason Day, from Ypsilanti, Mich., defeated eight other competitors Saturday in the first bacon-eating contest at Happy Harry's Beer and Bacon Festival in Grand Forks.

The contest was a new addition to the annual beer-tasting event at the Alerus Center. Festival officials say adding bacon to the mix increased interest and attendance.

There was also a bacon dish competition among six local restaurants.
