Once again gluttony is celebrated while people starve in the world. I think the biggest hypocrite in this contest was Mayor Bloomberg who wants to outlaw large drinks because they make us fat but yet thought a gluttony fest with contestants eating thousands of calories of processed meat was a fine thing to oversee.

Isn't it strange how in New York City you can stuff your face with 60+ hot dogs in 10 minutes, but you cannot have a 32 oz Pepsi or Coke?

BTW, I too love Nathan's Hot Dogs, but I wouldn't want to eat more than one or two at one time.

"But two years ago, after refusing to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating, the food equivalent of the NFL, he was banned from competition."

He refused to sign an exclusive contract so he was banned??!! Wrong, wrong, wrong

I love Nathan's hot dogs but eating competitions are disgusting.

I love a good hotdog...but not 68! I can't imagine what one would feel like after speed-eating 68 dogs...ugh! I can't help but wonder what shape their health might be in, say, 25 yrs. from now. A lot of these folks don't just do this once a year. How much abuse can your body take years later? How about some clogged arteries!

I am sure you love a good "hotdog". I am sure you love it long time.


" How much abuse can your body take years later?"

How many hot dogs have you loved?

Joey just consumed 68 times over skeletal muschlses, pork stomach, spleen, stomach, snout, intestines, fat and lips. This is what meat dogs contain. Go VEGCON pronounced veegcon which means VEGetarian CONscious. VEGCONISM is the "Conscious Choice" . Meat is Murder when people choose to eat animals instead of the array of meatless hot dogs available. Meaters(people that eat meat) is no different than cannabalism, just the degree that is all. Flesh food is flesh food whether it is a human or animal.

Meat is murder. TASTY, TASTY murder.

You have to be thin to eat like this. A big belly can't stretch enough to accomodate a bulging stomach. Thats why the big guys never win. I had 2 Nathans the other day, and was full. but I used to drink 9 bottles of beer before having to hit the head. Ah the good ol days.

Man, everyone loves to make everything into an issue. Nobody in Africa is starving because some dude ate 68 hot dogs in America one day. Sure competitive eating is a glorification of gluttony but it is in the same way that fireworks on the 4th of July are a glorification of war. It's just spectacle, and this guy trained hard to be able to do this thing that nobody else has ever been able to do, and it's awesome. So just let it be awesome and don't try it at home.

Last year, the Japanese native nicknamed the "Tsunami"...Wasn't he once nicknamed "The Rabbit?" I guess that wasn't tough enough.

Joey just consumed 68 hot dogs that contain: skeletal muscles, pork stomach, snout, spleen, intestines, fat and lips as well as others that eat meat dogs. Go VEGCON pronounced veegcon which means VEGetarian CONscious. VEGCONISM is the "Conscious Choice". Meat is murder when there are alternative meatless hotdogs available that are far more nutritional without having animals killed.

What is the merit of being able to stuff food down your throat like this? I don't think encouraging and marketing this is helpful in a country where obesity is rampant. Children and gullible people may think it is okay to do this. Plus it is a horrible thing to do to your system.
