Personally, I find eating contests to be utterly disgusting displays of gluttony. And it freaks me out that the winners are usually very, very thin.

But if you care about this sort of thing, yesterday saw a major upset in the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. Joey Chestnut ate 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes, dethroning defending champion Takeru Kobayashi (pictured above), who I guess barfed as time expired.

Seriously, who watches this shit?

For a "you-are-there" look at competitive eating, check out Unreal's 2004 visit to a T-rav eating contest.
