Did anyone happen to catch the hotdog eating contest today? Guess it takes place annually on Coney Island NY and again a Japanese contestant won...eating 53 hotdogs (with buns) in 12 minutes. A slim woman contestant came in 4th eating 30 hotdogs (I think). The Japanese came in 1st and 2nd! The American guys were very hefty...some over 400lbs. but guess they just can't down as many "dogs" in so little time. It sure was funny watching people stuff their mouths...literally :D

53 hot dogs in 12 minutes. Sigh No way I can do that. Maybe across 12 days I could eat 53 hot dogs but that would mean eating a couple of hot dogs for breakfast, lunch and dinner for those 12 days.

Maybe we should start a contest here, replacing the hot dogs w/ spam musubi.

When I read that post, my stomach became full again (just had a bbq).

The spam musubi contest would be fun...although I think maybe the Japanese guy would win that too! Rice must fill people up faster! :p
