Have you seen my weiner

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut recently downed 66 steaming wieners between soft cushy buns! That's not only a good weekend on Fire Island, but also good-enough to win the annual Nathan's Coney Island Hot Dog-Eating Championship held on the 4th of July. Finally, an American has won the mustard belt in the tube-steak tussle. Chestnut beat 6-time champ Takeru Kobayashi as both set personal-best competitive eating records. I suppose it's fitting that the championship reside in our country, perhaps the most gluttonous of all.

Several of our staff have been known to take down a plate or three of food at a sitting (including the unbelievable pairing of a patty melt with pancakes by P.K., a feat which had never been accomplished before) and always lived to tell about it. Still, I can't help but ask the obvious question: just what in the hell does their stool look like the next day? 66 wieners and buns?!?

Sweet Jesus.

Once we know that answer, we'll have, as our friend and possible future down and distant contributor Paul Harvey says, "the rest of the story."

Good for you Joey - those bowels aren't going to impact themselves.

War competitive eating!

Savant Out.
