Chestnut Keeps the Mustard on the Table in America

Jacob PaciorekContributor IJuly 5, 2008

On July 4th, as Joey Chestnut remembered our forefathers, he out-ate his competitor, Takeru Kobayashi.

In ten minuets Joey and Kobayashi had devoured 59 hot dogs each. Joey had fallen behind in the last two minuets by two hot dogs. In the last two seconds he chipmunked two hot dogs in his mouth to tie it up at fifty-nine.

Then in a Dog-Off, Joey ate five hotdogs the quickest. Even though pigs' lives were lost, more of them rest in Joey, then in Kobayashi. The mustard belt stays in America. This is America's new past time, competitive eating.
