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.

Mentos has hired Trevor, a lovely little intern, to do stuff on the web that people suggest all day long. You can log onto Trevor’s website and put something in his schedule for him to do the next day. If you are really bored at work today at 3pm today he will be teaching us the Electric Slide.
The website is kind of addictive and I haven’t figured out what I want him to do yet. Our friends at Dlisted have asked him to do dirty things but I guess he won’t do anything too racy. Darn. He actually did just make out with a giant tube of Mentos.
I’m thinking I want him to do Britney Spears’s “Hit Me Baby One More Time”…the dance and all. That seems fun. He probably does have a musical theatre degree from Northwestern anyway.
Go ask Trevor to do something and let me know when he is doing it. Yes…I have no life.

According to TMZ, WWE wrestler Chris Benoit likely murdered his wife by strangulation on Saturday, the day he was supposed to appear in a WWE event. He then smothered his seven-year-old son in bed a day later. On Monday, he hung himself in his weight room.
Investigators in Atlanta are refusing to comment officially, pending final confirmation by the coroner.
Crazy, crazy, crazy.
And very sad.
