The Clay Aiken of Bacon Twice Takes Top Dog Over The Ichiro of, uh... Hot Doggie Rolls

ABC News: American Wins Hot Dog Crown in OT
In one of the most exciting finishes in hot dog eating competition history, defending champion Joey Chestnut today defeated six-time winner Takeru Kobayashi in overtime to keep the Mustard Belt, $20,000 and the world's fastest hot dog eater title.
But the title is his only for the year, and when Kobayashi was asked if he would be competing again, he offered a simple, yet ominous "of course."
Of course Kobayashi will be back.

He works for Keyser Söze.

(Disturbing) Update:

At least Japan is still number 1 in other areas.
The Shukan Asahi Geino (June 19) reports that Japan’s Masanobu Sato emerged as the hands-down winner in the 7th Masturbate-A-Thon, held in San Francisco on May 25.
9 hours, 33 minutes. Ouch.

There's a tie for "Best Line":

First, the Shukan Asahi Geino reminding us that that record is:
"equivalent to the flying time between Narita and Los Angeles."
Not a flight I'd like to be on.

Second, the same paper noting that:
"Sato’s right arm is considerably more developed than his left."
Ya think?
