'TIS THE SEASON FOR GLUTTONY




It's hot dog gorging time again, and just in time for the 4th:

Mr. Kobayashi, 5-foot-7 and 131 pounds, is ferocious because he has defeated rivals many times his weight.

He is an eating machine because he has won Nathan's Famous hot-dog contest four years in a row. Last year, he ate a record 53½ frankfurters, buns and all, in the required 12 minutes, or roughly one every 13 seconds.


Well, to be fair, every season is gluttony season in this country it seems (but who doesn't love a good eating competition?).

That's why I am glad there are people like the Collective Heritage Institute. Please don't confuse them with the individual Heritage Institute.

UPDATE: Just rereading this quote I pulled. Who is this journalist? He/she could really stand a lesson in logic.

Did the fact that Mr. Kobayashi defeated many people cause him to be ferocious, or does his ferocious characteristic cause him to defeat people many times his weight?

Did winning the hot dog eating contest cause him to be an eating machine, or is it the fact that Mr. Kobayashi is an eating machine that caused him to win the contest?

Nonetheless, let's not allow poor writing to stand in the way of our admiration for Mr. Kobayashi's remarkable achievements in the sport of binge eating.

I have nothing against Mr. Kobayashi, but his participation in this event resulted in one less American being able to gorge himself.
