    The Michael Jordan of competitive hot dog eating won his fifth straight title yesterday, to nobody's surprise. 49 hot dogs in 12 minutes, a little short of his previous record of 53 1/2 from last year.

    But look who finished second:



    Gotta root for someone who lives in the same city as me! Mark Hastings, I think your girl Kate Stelnick has been surpassed. [​IMG]

    Here's The Black Widow at last year's contest:

    Must have been before the contest itself, look how thin she is! Yeah, I guess Kate's cuter, but there's no shame in that, this lady is also pretty cute.

    Was Kobayashi able to see the score in progress? He ended up eating 11 more hot dogs than he had to. Yuck!

    Maybe he was just going for the record again. I think he was at least 20 hot dogs ahead of the rest of the field when he set his current record last year. As the Captain once said of Homer Simpson: "'Tis no man, 'tis a remorseless eating machine, Arr!"

    So The Black Widow manages a Burger King--if it's in Alexandria, the one in a mall right near where I live is pretty ghetto, but there's another one about 10 minutes away that's nicer. I'll just assume she manages the nice one. [​IMG]

    Do they throw this stuff back up after the competition?

    Thanks for linking to that article, Thomas. I like the bit about the Thanksgiving competition: she ate 7 3/4 pounds of turducken in 12 minutes!

    Mark, I know you gotta stick up for Kate, but these are some unbelievable exploits we're talking about. 11 pounds of burger + fixins in three hours, compared to 3/4 that much in turducken in 12 minutes?! Wow!

    Yes, but they are required to hold it down for a certain period of time.
