5I Guess Eating All Those Wieners isn’t Good For You

To all those out there who dream of being the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Champ. Competitive eating has its consequences.

Takeru Kobayashi of Japan, the hot-dog eating champ of New York City’s Coney Island has been diagnosed with arthritis of the jaw. According to a message he sent his fans on his website,

“Already I can’t open my jaws more than just a little bit. There’s no pain only if I open my mouth about enough for one finger. More than that is painful and I can’t open it. To tell the truth, I’m desperate about healing completely before the July 4 contest”

Fans need not worry that their won’t be a wowing wiener champ. Already Joey Chestnut, 23, of San Jose, Calif., beat Kobayashi’s world record in a Coney qualifying event, the Southwest Regional Hot Dog Eating Championship at the Arizona Mills Mall, by eating 59.5 hot dogs in 12 minutes. The record that Kobayashi set last year was 53.75 wieners in 12 minutes.

I’m sure the Mustard Belt will go to a dynamic Wiener winner. I feel sorry for Kobayashi…kind of funny however that he has paralized his jaw by eating too many wieners. I know some girls that I went to college with that had the same problem.

    I will perpetually be laughing for the rest of the day sporadically because of those few sentences. Hilarious pretty much sums that up.

    This was worth reading just for the Arizona Mills mention. I hadn’t thought about that place in like five years.

    Waste of food.. they immediately throw up.

    I agree with Clementines. Won’t somebody please think of the starving Ethiopians?

    Paris should totally take his place. She’s a weiner gobbler, she’d probably need like no training at all.
