It's that time again! Not just for the ohhh's and awws's at firework displays across the nation, but for the oh so familiar "ewww's and ohhh's" at theNathan's FamousFourth of July International Hot Dog Eating contest.
A 97-year tradition, it's weigh-in time before the big day at Coney Island. Who better to preside over the weigh-in for an incredibly unhealthy eating contest, than mister health-nut himself, Mayor Michael Bloomberg? You know the guy responsible for banning the sale of sugary drinks larger than 16-ounces?
What a joke!
Anyways, familiar faces Joey Chestnut and Sonya "the black widow" Thomas is back this year, and 13 ladies will give the five-time-champ, Chestnut, a run for his money.
We'll just have to wait and see if munching down 62 hot dogs and buns will be enough to win again this year!
This is just too easy for us... so, feel free to insert your own wiener to mouth joke here.
