America's hopes slip away

Japan's Kobayashi pulls away to win it, 53 and three-fourths to 52. The contestants are now hunched over, their mouths stuffed full of hot dogs. American Joey Chestnut's upset bid just came up short. I have witnessed perhaps the greatest sporting event ever. But once Kobayashi's apparent steroid use comes to light, it is sure to be seen as a tainted win. I urge Nathan's to allow canines to enter next year's contest; then the world will see some real eating.

Speaking of competitive eating, I will be engaging in my own form of this event later this afternoon. It will involve my attempt at stealing some or all of the foods my mother will be grilling later this afternoon, consisting of ribs and hamburgers. Last time there was a cookout, I made off with a 12 ounce ribeye before it even hit the grill. When will these humans ever learn not to leave food on the table near the grill? Idiots! Oh well, let's hope they don't get wise to my plans for my own little 4th of July feast!

obviously we need mandatory drug testing before the hot dog eating event.

I've never seen a Pug who couldn't eat his weight in hotdogs. Pound for pound, they would be the champs.
