    Kobyashi put down 11 hot dogs in the first minute. Chestnut with 10.

    Sorriest excuse for an "event." Ev-ah.

    Refuse to watch just based on general principle.

    It's entertaining to say the most.

    Chestnut wins again, putting down 68 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. Kobyashi is second with 64.

    Three consecutive titles for Chestnut.

    I can't watch it. It's just too nasty.

    I did eat one hot dog today, with Nathan's mustard on it.

    From the Onion:

    The absolute worst meat goes into hot dogs — animal parts that oughta be thrown away — and then they pump it full of nitrates and sodium and dyes ... you might as well be drinking embalming fluid.
    The meat in hot dogs comes from "cheeks and asses."
    Alas, off toward the beer cooler.

    Note: Grilled six last nite. The kid loves 'em and so do wife and I.

    eff the onion.

    the right dog, barbequed right with spicy brown mustard is a perfect summer food. if sauerkraut is available even better. 8) 8) 8)

    no b-bque for the shockeys today. goin' out to dinner with another couple tonight instead. b-bque tomorrow at their house, though, and i dare say the hot dog poolside wiill taste as scrumptuous as the 100-buck dinner the mrs. and i might drop this evening. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Dipping the bun in the water is actually the grossest part for me. Blech.

    It's a fun 10 minutes. I liked how then panned through all the competitors listing their current "world titles." The two women could hold their own too.
