  1. Only in America is there a celebration of gluttony on the 4th of July. One of these years he’s gonna go full Lardass and start a barfarama on live TV. I had a hot dog yesterday and a bowl of baked beans with hotdogs mixed in it today, that’s my limit.

  2. @LCD, yes, that is Joey, he’s a stud.

    I wonder if Joey barfed on that douche-wagon, whether he would have to start over?

  3. @Dan,
    I just saw that. It was Joey. It seems some animal rights nutcase tried to get in between Joey and a hot dog. It didn’t end well for him. And Joey still won by 20 dogs!
    I think he snapped the guy’s neck.

  4. 63!!! Holy cow. Joey Chestnut is not by any means a big fella which makes it even more amazing & a bit sickening to watch. I have had Nathan’s hot dogs many times over the years while on job sites in NYC. The most that I could ever manage was 3 & I’m 6’1 240#. I guess I will never be a contender to the throne. Probably just as well!

  5. I hope he puked that shit up. That’s enough sodium to kill 30 people.
