  • Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contestants Step Up to the Scale

    07/03/2017 11:19:52 AM PDT · by ETL · 53 replies
    It's weigh in time for competitors ready to stuff their faces Tuesday at the famous Nathan's hot dog eating contest in Coney Island. Eaters to watch this year include reigning hot dog champ Joey "Jaws" Chestnut. He's taken home the mustard yellow belt nine of the last 10 years. Chestnut will try to chew his way to the top against rival Matt Stonie, who briefly took the title two years ago. Chestnut bit back last year, redeeming the frankfurter crown, out chomping Stonie during a nail biter at the beach. He ended up scarfing down a record 70 dogs in...

    In an interview with Raymond Arroyo on EWTN's The World Over, Edward Pentin stated that his sources have confirmed with him that "Pope Francis not happy at all," with the letter of the four Cardinals on the matter of heretical clauses and sacrilegious actions in Amoris Laetitia. Pentin continued that he, the Pope, is "boiling with rage." He had been "given two months," to respond to the four, and has refused. "Boiling with rage." How very sad. To you priests and bishops in Rome who are faithful to the Church and know first hand what is happening there, whom do...

    A Washington State couple who abused a young boy, in part, by forcing him to live on a bizarre hot dog smoothie have been handed lengthy prison sentences. Prosecutors argued in court that Christopher Sefton and Lori Lloyd forced Sefton's 6-year-old son to live on a blended cocktail of hot dogs and cooking oil while physically abusing him and forcing him to work out and restricting his sleep, according to KOMO. The boy, identified only as K., was reportedly emaciated and feeding himself out of school trash cans when officials finally came to his aid ...
  • Your Vegetarian Hot Dog May Contain Meat ... and Human DNA

    Think you’re making the healthy choice by picking a vegetarian hot dog? Check the brand you’re buying: A new report found that 10 percent of the vegetarian hot dogs tested contained meat, including chicken in a vegetarian breakfast sausage and pork in a vegetarian hot dog. But that’s not all. Clear Food, a company that genetically tests food products, looked at 345 hot dog samples from 75 brands, including meat-based and meat-free franks. Of those 345 hot dogs, 14.4 percent had some sort of issue, be it a labeling inaccuracy or hygiene problem. Some dogs were labeled pork-free — important...

    A Norwegian biorefinery company has started turning waste wood fibre into a cream-like fat substitute which it claims can be used to make ice cream, mayonnaise and even hot dogs. Borregaard has already opened a plant in Wisconsin, USA, producing the revolutionary new substance, which it calls Sense-Fi,and plans to open a second factory in Sarpsborg, Norway, in 2016. "We are rolling it out primarily in the US, where it has been approved. Sales are just about underway, and there is a lot of focus on fighting obesity," says business director Harald Rřnneberg Borregaard to Norway's Dagbladet newspaper. Researchers at...

    Confusion about what constitutes halal meat sparked a blunder at a community barbecue in Fairview on Saturday. After failing to provide halal meat, event organizers tried to remedy the oversight by having a local politician bless regular hotdogs. Patricia Arab, Liberal MLA for Fairview-Clayton Park, said a prayer over the hotdogs, mistakenly thinking this would make the meat halal. Meat that is halal, which means “permissible” in Arabic, is prepared following precise instructions detailed in the Qur’an. A halal animal must be healthy and fed a natural diet that does not contain animal byproducts. When it’s slaughtered, it is blessed...
  • Joey Chestnut Eats 61 Hot Dogs (great video simulation of what happens in the body)

    NEW YORK -- There's just no stopping "Jaws." Joey Chestnut scarfed down 61 hot dogs in 10 minutes to win his eighth consecutive championship, barely beating Matt Stonie at the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island on Friday. The main course? That came just before the contest, when the 30-year-old Chestnut proposed on the event stage, just steps from the beach, to longtime girlfriend Neslie Ricasa, who said yes. Stonie, who was second in 2013 with 51 dogs, again was the runner-up with 56. Tim "Eater X" Janus was third with 44. While it...

    Today the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council launched a bracket to determine the Official Hot Dog Condiment Champion. Their bracket separates wet and dry condiments, but in the end there will only be one winner of these 16 competitors: sauerkraut, ketchup, mustard, cole slaw, chili, BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, onions, cheese, tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot peppers, bacon, pickles and pulled pork. John Del Signore refuses to even dignify this "competition" with a comment, but has firmly declared his anti-ketchup stance during some casual office talk. Yakas took his silence as an opportunity to take one last swing for ketchup, however:...

    No longer just a thing of questionable meat byproducts and discarded parts, hot dogs have gone gourmet, and the results are as delicious as the meat choices are surprising. As home of the Sonoran dog, Arizona is an inventive place for hot dog toppings. Needless to say, you won't find salsa or avocado on this list. Instead, these dogs feature foie gras, peanut butter, turducken, poached egg, potato pierogi, and more. Here are 10 truly delicious yet totally bizarre hot dogs you'll want to track down.

    October 28, 2012 Why Is Obama So Nasty and Vulgar? Michael Ledeen Rude, insulting language about Romney (“bullsh****r) from the president. Vulgar sexual innuendo, aimed at seducing young women to vote for him. The vice president asking a bereaved parent about the size of his murdered son’s testicles. It’s quite a spectacle. We’re a fractious people, and our politics have always been full of colorful language, but I can’t recall the current depth of vulgarity. The “politics of personal destruction” have gotten uglier. Does it mean anything? Should we try to understand it?First, it bespeaks a coarsening of public language....

    New York Times ^ | April 30, 2012 | PAUL VITELLO
    Fred Hakim’s family owned a hole-in-the-wall hot-dog counter in Times Square that was the last of its kind when New York decided to revitalize the area in the 1990s by condemning dozens of establishments like it. It was a seven-seat, 250-square-foot piece of Edward Hopper streetscape at 229-31 West 42nd Street, which Mr. Hakim’s father had opened in 1941 and wryly named the Grand Luncheonette. Mr. Hakim (pronounced HAY-kim) tried to keep the place open as a sort of living museum of the golden age of hawkers and honky-tonks in Times Square. But the city had other ideas, and after...

    Detectives with the Narcotic Vice Squad in Nassau County were investigating Catherine Scalia, 45, of East Rockaway, and became aware she was offering up more than kraut and relish from her hot dog cart on Sunrise Highway in Baldwin, according to police. Scalia was arrested Thursday after authorities said she offered to engage in sexual conduct at her home with an undercover detective in return for money. The undercover officer bought two hot dogs and noticed suggestive business cards offering services you don’t usually get from a food vendor, CBS 2′s Carol Gusoff reported.

    A dog-eating carnival that derived from a 600-year-old tradition in an east China township has been banned following a wave of public fury, said an official Wednesday. The government stopped the dog-eating carnival held in every October in Qianxi Township, Jinhua City in Zhejiang Province due to resentment voiced on the Internet as well as increasing discontent among villagers, said Zhang Jianhong, a township official. Dogs are slaughtered and skinned in the streets in recent years in Qianxi when an annual commodity fair is held in October, which sparked fierce condemnation after the cruelty was exposed online prior to this...

    Instead of grouping hot dogs with Mom and apple pie, a national medical group wants you to consider them as bad for your health as cigarettes. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a Washington, D.C., group that promotes preventive medicine and a vegan diet, unveiled a billboard [last] Monday near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the advisory: “Warning: Hot dogs can wreck your health.” The billboard features a picture of hot dogs in a cigarette pack inscribed with skull and crossbones. It aims to increase awareness of a link between colorectal cancer and hot dogs. Hot dogs, like cigarettes, should...
