Not eating for ~8 hours isn't exactly starving yourself. Sounds like he just choked. I guess the tacos were crunchy? Not a good choice for speed eating. If they were food truck tacos, with pieces of beef that have the texture of old work boots, that isn't a good choice either.

A taco eating contest on it's own seems like a bad idea. Bunch of people rushing eating something with a hard shell and possibly sharp edges as it's going down barely chewed.

At least stick with hot dogs or something!

Taco trucks don't usually sell hard shell tacos. They're usually the "street tacos" variety where the tortillas are heated to soften them up. Still sounds like a bad idea to have a taco eating contest though. I guess anyone can choke on anything though.

Taco is soft corn tortilla. Two pieces layered. Hard shell taco is for white people

Not really, we got a Taco Bell here many years back but it didn't stay very long. Guess it's not really something that's popular here.
Even Taco Bell serves soft shell tacos. You seriously have no place that sells tacos or sells stuff to make tacos up there? I think you can get soft taco shells in all the brands (store, Old El Paso, Ortega). That was true when I lived in bumblefuck rural Midwest America too. Plus you know, just using tortillas.

Seriously, WTF? I feel bad for constantly pointing out how you never seem to know what you're talking about because apparently you're a shut-in or have lived in like some religious cult bunker your whole life or something.
