The best part about the 4th of July isn’t going to the lake or beach to drink and catch some sun, but the Nathan’s International hot dog eating contest held every year on Coney Island, NY. Yesterday after drinking and laying by the pool, for a small part of the day, I ended up watching the replay of the contest. A new comer to the competitive eating word Joey Chestnut gave Kobayashi a run for his money. But in the end Kobayashi was to much. So as a solute to the great eaters of the world I only ate beef yesterday to celebrate the 4th. I had smoked beef brisket for breakfast, hamburger for lunch and a steak for dinner, and now I am going thru some kind of red meat withdrawals since my last hit of beef. Kobayashi set a new world record yesterday with 54 hot dogs, so I want to know how many hot dogs you think you can eat in 12 minutes. I am going to guestimate that I can probably put down some where between 10 and 15.

Did u know.....Only two people signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, John Hancock and Charles Thomson. Most of the rest signed on August 2, but the last signature wasn't added until 5 year' s later

Well, I probably could eat about 5 hotdogs at once, evident because I bring an entire pack every where I go! I am not sure about the 12-year-olds.

I'm going to go with 12 hot dogs. As for the 12 year olds, "you must be this tall to fight me."

Penny,
Good question, I will have to wait until school starts back up to find out. Choosing the middle might be the hard part. You know there could be some rather large 12 year olds
