Unless you’re chowing down Scrabble tiles, it’s hard to imagine someone hurling so hard at a competition based around language.

Yet that’s exactly what happened here in this instantly classic photo.

This poor chap just took fifth place at a speech competition in Nebraska. Either he chugged down some rancid Ovaltine or is just sick to his stomach at his lowly fifth-place showing (side note: since when does fifth place warrant a spot on the medal stand?). Actually, everyone should be grateful he didn't finish higher. He would've been higher up on the stand and could've spewed chunks on someone below, which would've made fifth place even worse.

Whatever the reason for his tummy troubles, we say this guy should stick to competitive events less likely to wreak havoc on his body, like boxing or hockey or driving with Justin Bieber.
