One-upmanship is always a bit humorous to watch. The problem is that the people participating never seem to realize it’s one of those childhood games that can go on forever.
For example, if you were to tell me you can eat six hamburgers, I could say seven. If you were to say eight, I could punch you in the throat. If you happened to be eating one of those burgers, you’d probably die. But since we’re both lying, the game simply continues with you kicking me in the spleen. No one wins.
