Foiled Again

In the annual tradition that can literally make you sick to your stomach, 27 year old Japanese Takeru Kobayashi takes his sixth crown as the king of Nathan's Hot Dog eating, besting out his American competition.

From the AP wire: "A 160-pound wonder from Japan set a new record by devouring a sickening 53 3/4 frankfurters in 12 minutes to win the annual Independence Day hot dog eating competition on Coney Island. He broke his own record of 53 1/2 hot dogs, set at the same competition two years ago. Thousands of raucous spectators jammed the streets in front of the hot dog stand, a block from the famed Coney Island boardwalk."

As I'm about to fire up the (george forman) grill, I'm suddenly second guessing the hand filled franks from my local butcher and going instead with the filet mignons.
