With the Empire State Building as a backdrop and a drag queen named Mimi Imfurst cracking jokes about stuffing wieners into Anderson Cooper's mouth, Takeru Kobayashi executed an improbably perfect "up yours" to the Nathan's hot dog eating contest, from which he's been barred over a long-running contractual dispute that we examined yesterday. Today, Kobayashi gobbled 69 hot dogs and buns, one more than his nemesis Joey Chestnut's world record and seven more than Chestnut ate on Coney Island to claim his fifth straight Nathan's title. So what if it was impossible to keep track of how many hot dogs Kobayashi actually ate. He ate a ton. Everyone had a great time. Happy Fourth of July, patriots.
