Wiener gorging

The article in today’s paper about Nathan’s Famous annual July Fourth hot dog eating contest made me sad to think someone gorged himself with 71 hot dogs and buns. Whoever thought this contest was a good idea? The food could have been donated to a homeless shelter or to one of the organizations feeding the hungry. I will never ever again buy a Nathan’s Hot Dog. Joe’s take: Maybe it looks ridiculous, and quite wasteful, but Nathan’s does contribute to food banks, and I’m sure they have many more hot dogs to spare for its world-famous contest. So don’t be sad.
