Have you ever watched the annual Hot Dog Eating Contest from Coney Island, New York (July 4th)? Okay, for those that haven’t here’s a quick look for you. Pay attention to the method of stuffing the dogs in the contestant’s pie-holes.
Notice how they dip the hot dogs in water? It makes them easier to swallow (we’re told), even though the thought of water-logged buns around a dog disgusts me almost as much as watching these folks in the first place. Anyway, I give you that background to present to you the case of Nicolas Heller. @newyorknico on Instagram has become somewhat of a viral sensation for this video of him while recently taking in a New York Yankees game.
I love beer. I love hot dogs. That being said, this is not a chocolate and peanut butter situation. Just because you have two great tastes doesn’t mean they should be tasted together. Am I right? I mean, this guy’s a savage for eating this way. Or am I way off and Nicolas is a groundbreaker in terms of hot dog consumption? Your thoughts?
