I believe it should count yes. I mean, the pain and suffering of downing two pounds of kraut should be a feat in itself. Vomit would only add to the story. I envision a scene from "Stand By Me" when everyone puked pie on each other. On another note, I'm considering tossing small sample bags of kraut to parade goers. Jeff and Tom...would you, being my sponsor and all, support me on this? I probably would help you guys load the kraut into the bags (more than likely ziplocs) but it depends on my kraut training schedule.
