So…this is the world we live in.  A world of truth, justice, and world belching champions!

Tim Janus recently won the first ever World Burping Championship in New York City, setting a new world record for the world’s longest burp at 18.1 seconds.  According to DNAinfo, Janus chugged 2 gallons of soda to accomplish the feat.

“I was just trying to condense all the air in my stomach and bring it to the surface,” said the 165-pound Janus.

“You just have to force every last bit of air up. It’s beautiful, really.”
