Did You Know? Michel Lotito Once Ate An Entire Airplane And 18 Bicycles

Michel Lotito was a French entertainer, born in Grenoble, famous for deliberately consuming indigestible objects. He came to be known as Monsieur Mangetout (“Mr Eat-All”).

 

An inquest into the death of Brit Frederick Edwards in 1933 found 200 nails, 36 staples and 3 pen-knives in his stomach. But he didn’t even have half the appetite of Frenchman Michel Lotito, whose stage name was “Mr Eat All.” Michel ate 18 bicycles, 15 shopping carts, 7 TV sets, a computer, numerous razor blades and, believe it or not, one Cessna 150 light aircraft.

Lotito claimed not to suffer from consuming the materials, even if some are considered poisonous. When performing, he consumed around 1 kilogram (2.2 lb) of material daily, preceding it with mineral oil and drinking considerable quantities of water during the meal.

The aircraft meal was not fast food, though; it took him two years, 1978 – 1980, to munch through the delight. He finished the shopping cart in four-and-a-half days.

On average, Lotito ate 2 lb (almost a kg) of glass and metal a day (as seen in the Mr Eat All video below). His strange diets certainly was enough to get him into the Guinness Book of Records section of unusual skills. Only bananas and hard-boiled eggs made him feel sick, he said.

Lotito died on June 25, 2007, ten days after his 57th birthday due to natural causes. He is buried at Grenoble Cemetery.
